ALPHACAM to be Exhibited Jan. 28-30 at The International Stone Expo West1/6
ALPHACAM 2020.1 delivers improvements for sawing and waterjet cutting, and will be shown at Booth No. 4575
The ALPHACAM solution for stone will be exhibited Jan. 28-30 at the International Surface Event-Stone Expo West 2020, hosted at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
As the largest North American floor-covering, stone, and tile-industry event, The International Surface Event (TISE) is an ideal marketplace for industry professionals to source products, gain design inspiration and develop their businesses.
ALPHACAM 2020.1 delivers improvements for waterjet cutting, as well as for sawing surfaces and solids. This latest version enables users to create waterjet tools and specify parameters specific to waterjet cutting. Abrasive flow rates can be defined in the new tool type, as well as how far the nozzle should be from the top of the material.
In addition to existing machining cycles, ALPHACAM 2020.1 introduces three waterjet operations that can follow a profile, clear areas, or cut and pierce holes in both 3- and 5-axis machining. A simulation can be run to check for possible collisions between the nozzle and material.
The new release now also defines boundaries when cutting surfaces and solids with a disc/saw. Users define multiple boundaries, and ALPHACAM will avoid machining those areas.
