Alphacam Router - Easy To Use Software For
Programmming CNC Routers
Ease-of-use is just one of the reasons that Alphacam
is the industry standard and system of choice for programming CNC routers.
Tooling and machining techniques unique to this industry are accommodated
by Alphacam’s dedicated Router modules.
aggregates for machining parts such as hinge reliefs and lock mortices,
are easy to control using Alphacam. Standard
fixtures can be created and saved within the system and inserted on to
work planes when required, providing significant time savings.
Head mounted rotary axis on CNC routers can be programmed at any workplane. Aggregates with a programmable rotary axis
and manual tilt are fully supported, as well as routers with fully
interpolating 5-axis heads. Safe rapid moves between planes are
automatically controlled and verified using advanced solid simulation. Alphacam’s powerful post-processing ability means
that the advanced functionality of all CNC controllers is utilised,
including plane rotation.
text can be easily created and machined using Alphacam’s
powerful 3D engraving. This command contours geometries with a form tool,
and on meeting a sharp corner automatically retracts the tool to produce
a sharp corner, often referred to as embossing.
rough and finish machining strategies of Solids, surfaces and even STL
files are available within Alphacam. These
strategies can be applied to any work plane, allowing for 3 plus 2
machining to be programmed on machines with 4 and 5-axis rotary heads. Alphacam’s 5-axis module is cable of 4 and 5-axis
simultaneous machining of surfaces and 3D trim curves, often used for
finishing chair backs.
material utilisation is made easy using Alphacam’s
automatic nesting functionality. Parts can be selected from the screen or
a kit of parts, their orientation fixed (if grain direction needs to be
maintained) or rotated to any angle. Nesting supports tool lead in/out,
support tags for small parts and multiple depth parts where an onion skin
Geometry Constraint Manager
Using Alphacam’s Constraint Manager, geometry can be made
parametric, rules such as tangency can be applied between individual
elements, and variables such as distance set between them. By changing
the variables, the geometry is automatically resized and resolved and
because of the rules applied its integrity maintained. This makes
creation and subsequent machining of families of parts very quick and
Dedicated Drilling Unit
Using Alphacam’s Multi Drilling command toolpaths
can be optimised for any drill unit. Holes are matched to the drill
diameters and automatically machined; multiple drills are selected at the
same time when a standard 32mm pitch is matched.
Integrated CAD CAM
is a completely integrated CAD CAM software solution with advanced
features. It is designed to offer your business enhanced productivity,
exceptional reliability and additional flexibility.
Alphacam’s ongoing program of development and
enhancement ensures it not only keeps pace with the changing needs of
users throughout the woodworking industry, but also delivers maximum
return on your CAM investment.
Alphacam also offers you the latest front end
CAD part modelling facilities via our solid modeller.
The Modules :
Alphacam Art 3D relief modelling and machining
software for CNC routing and engraving projects such as carving decorative
ornate panels and doors, swept flourishes, custom millwork, architectural
mouldings, dimensional signage, bespoke company logos, jewellery pieces,
custom gifts and awards. Plus many more applications.
Alphacam Art’s 3D component construction tools

shapes. Alphacam Art,
is based on the world class VCarve Pro design
engine and uses the same logical and easy-to-use interface.
With Alphacam Art, users can quickly and easily
convert 2D sketches, photographs, drawings and graphic designs into
unique high quality 3D carvings and designs.
Alphacam Essential The ideal entry level product for
basic 2D CNC work. This module offers the fundamental tools required for
CAD CAM production, including nesting of parts from the screen, and 3D
Alphacam Standard The perfect product for shops and
subcontractors. This module offers all the functionality of the Essential
package with additional support for nesting of parts from a nest list,
horizontal machining, reusable machining data (Machining Styles), and
Targeted at the manufacturer who works with complex, free-form patterns
and tools. In addition to the functionality of the lower level modules,
this module offers complex 3D machining strategies, solid model importing
and feature extraction, constrained parametric part creation and much
more. This module also incorporates Microsoft’s Visual Basic for
Applications and is suited for those that can utilize Alphacam’s
add-on or custom built applications and automation tools.
Adds support for full 4/5-Axis simultaneous machining for highspecification joinery and furniture manufacturers
Door Manufacturing - CDM
CDM is a new door
program for AlphaCAM. It enables door
manufacturers to make full advantage of AlphaCAM,
the comprehensive and fully-featured CAD/CAM system for use with
Microsoft Windows platforms. AlphaCAM
integrates with any production control software and all CNC machines.
For many, the manufacture of
staircases has been seen as a black art; requiring skills and knowledge
handed down from generation. The introduction of the latest product from Licom in the form of AlphaSTAIR
changes that thinking.
AlphaSTAIR provides companies with a
complete know-how product, enabling staircases to be designed, costed, quoted, and manufactured using a single
software program, and in keeping with Licom
philosophy, this is an easy-to-use, comprehensive program.
