Lathe features in SprutCAM

Lathe features in SprutCAM

All types of turning operations

Facing, ID and OD roughing, finishing, threading, grooving, face grooving, lathe hole machining, part-off.

Lathe canned cycles

According to the user’s preference, SprutCAM can optionally output G-code using lathe cycles.
Lathe features in SprutCAM

Streamlined CNC programming workflow

SprutCAM calculates lathe toolpaths and all other machining processes using the native kinematics of the CNC machine.

What does this mean to the user?

This means that collisions between machine axes as well as the workpiece are handled automatically during toolpath calculation.

You do not need to postprocess the NC code to simulate the real-world result. All machine movements are visible immediately after the toolpath calculation.

CNC programming becomes visual, workflow is streamlined.

Further, thanks to this feature the user can save even more machine time by fine tuning of the machine. For example reducing cycle time by optimizing the tools location in the turret.

Lathe programming time-savers

Toolpath preview, interactive approaches and retracts, drag & drop contour editing, threads database
Save time with toolpath preview

Save time with toolpath preview

SprutCAM shows a toolpath sketch even before the toolpath calculation. So programming is getting faster.

Setting the approach interactively

Setting the approach interactively

Useful for obtaining easy readable values in the G-code.
CNC machinists will appreciate it.

Drag&drop contour editing

Drag-and-drop contour editing

Edit the machining contour directly in the interface. SprutCAM will show the toolpath preview with the changes.
Threads database

Threads database

Select the thread type and dimensions from the database. Step and depth will be updated automatically.

Advanced turning programming in SprutCAM

B-axis support

Turn parts of any profile

You can use B-axis to machine more complex contours with one tool.
B-axis support reduces the number of used tools and allows to
machine more sophisticated contours.
Watch demo
Make a feed-screw with any profile or for example, a buttress thread using this feature.
