High-Quality NC-Data Generation in Mold and Die Manufacturing
The CAM operation which generates a process plan and NC-data for mold machining plays an important role in mold manufacturing because it quite affects down stream processes such as NC machining, polishing, and assembly operation. This study proposes a supporting system which facilitates non-experts to perform the CAM operation easily and to select the high-quality NC-data which can increase machining productivity. It also designs and implements the support system in accordance with a CAM operation scenario. To check the usability of the support system developed, this study applies it to some practical examples of molding dies.
