What is PowerMill?: Autodesk PowerMill is expert CAM software for manufacturers of molds, dies and highly complex components wanting to achieve the maximum quality, control, and efficiency from their CNC machines. And of course, it uses powerful simulation tools to validate and enhance the motion of 5-axis machines.
What is it used for?: Fusion 360 with PowerMill is CAM software that specializes in generating high quality machining code to help manufacture large, complex parts such as molds, tools, and dies.
PowerMill is typically used to drive different types of CNC hardware including 3- and 5-axis mills, 5-axis mill-turn machines, industrial robots, and hybrid manufacturing machines.
Why PowerMill?: PowerMill creates a rapidly high quality toolpaths on large, complex parts.
- Has high efficiency roughing strategies.
- It works with surfaces, solids and STL meshes.
- Extensive library of tool types for use with 3-5 axis.
- Automatic 5-axis collision avoidance.
- Specialist tools for demanding industries and applications.
Drive productivity with 5-axis machining
Diversify and grow a high value business
Reduce cycle times with high-speed machining
Improve the quality of machined parts
|Use the rotary axes of machines to produce undercuts and other challenging features. Define a 3D digital twin of your CNC machine and use to identify and avoid collisions, near-misses, axis reversals and machine over-travel.
Avoid costly mistakes and build confidence to run CNC machines 'lights out' for increased productivity.
|PowerMill offers specialized tools to help businesses grow and evolve. To gain a competitive edge and offer your customers a higher value service:
- Automated electrode manufacture
- Off-line programming of industrial robotics
- Efficient machining of engine ports and manifolds
|Manufacture parts with high-efficiency roughing. Use the full length of solid carbide cutting tools to help increase material rates, reduce cycle time and prolong tool life.
Use intelligent 3D stock models to create efficient roughing and rest-roughing programs to remove stock with minimal air-cutting.
|Access a vast library of finishing strategies and combines with a comprehensive suite of tools, including barrel cutters, to achieve exceptional levels of accuracy and surface finish.
Trim, reverse, divide and reorder programs without the need for wasteful toolpath recalculation.
