Classic Wire EDM CAM

Camtek's OPTICAM Classic Wire EDM - known as PEPS in the German market - has been the industry leader for Wire EDM cutting since the early 90's. Continually developed by a team of WEDM experts, it boasts the most complete tools to give the ultimate solution for all simple and complex wire-cutting needs.

WIRE-Expert - Programming of highly complex parts in just a few seconds!

Automatic Feature Recognition of Wireable Geometries
WIRE-Expert searches the imported 3D part for wireable geometries. Here it is possible to either examine the complete part or to manually select individual geometries, surfaces or edges.

Automatic Creation of the Machining Features
A machining suggestion will be created for the recognized features. The user has the possibility to allocate existing cutting schemes beforehand or to automatically assign existing cutting schemes using the color recognition. Automatically created machining features can be modified, expanded and optimized at a later time without any restrictions.

Technology Databases - Original Manufacturer Data

OPTICAM Classic offers original technology databases for all common manufacturers. The user can either access the machine databases directly via interfaces, import the machine databases directly or is provided with a database which has already been converted.

Highlights.
Optimization in all fields of application.

Slug Retention

The Slug Retention automatically creates markings in cutting plates; during the punching process, these markings prevent the punched-out part from sticking to the punch and thus from damaging the cutting tool. This extends the service life of cutting tools significantly.

Collar Machining

The projection under an angle enables the machining of variable reference heights. Thus, a circumferential cylindrical collar of constant height can be created in the workpiece. The tapered section is calculated by OPTICAM Classic and does not already have to be included in the construction of the 3D model.

Controlling Additional Axes of Rotation

OPTICAM Classic offers the functionality to control additional axes of rotation and thus multi-axial machining during wire EDM. Thus it is possible to machine complex workpieces without any restrictions.

  • Unlimited Taper Angle
  • Maximum Accuracy
  • Maximum
  • Surface Quality
  • Machining In
  • One Clamping Operation

Ruled Surface Pocketing

Ruled Surface Pocketing enables the machining of ruled surfaces without any slugs. This reduces the programming effort significantly, and the machining operation can be executed without having to be monitored.

Partial Pocketing

Partial Pocketing is used to combine normal roughing and pocketing. It prevents the creation of slugs during roughing and thus enables an unattended and undisturbed operation.

Radius Manipulation

To improve the accuracy of fit between punches and dies, this macro modifies ("manipulates") the radii contained in a geometry.

Partial Figure Machining

The Part Figure Machining is used to machine geometry sections with different qualities.

Turning Tool Module

The Turning Tool Module calculates the geometry necessary for the wire EDM of profile turning tools, depending on the cutting angle and the frontal and lateral clearance angle on the turning tool.

True Contour Machining

The True Contour Machining is used for the production of industrial diamonds (PCD). An optional possibility is the automatic nesting of geometries. The machining is executed on the given geometry without radius compensation.
