Its feature-based system automatically recognizes EDM-specific machin- able features, including die pockets, punch bosses and holes as well as open-profile and turning- profile features for machines with rotary tables. When a user creates an operation in the soft- ware, all rough, skim and tab cuts are created separately, enabling the programmer to change the order of cuts manually or automatically via a sorting function. The cuts remain under the con- trol of the original operation, so if a minor change is required, the programmer can change that single operation to automatically regenerate associated cuts. The program's parent /child relationship of fers flexibility and usability. The CAM system also enables users to combine mate- rial removal strategies and customize the order of cuts for efficient material removal. Belmont has almost six decades of experience in EDM.
