Toolpaths

Comprehensive toolpath pack for robot milling: 45 roughing and finishing milling toolpaths

For 20 years we are developing CAD/CAM software for CNC machine programming – SprutCAM. During this period we developed huge amount of toolpaths for 2.5-, 3-, 4- and 5-axis machining for CNC machines.

Now all these toolpaths are available for industrial robots milling
in SprutCAM Robot.

Ultimate toolpath for sculpture milling: 5d by meshes

The new 5D By Meshes operation works on triangular meshes and surfaces alike and provides powerful strategies for 5 axis surface finishing. The most advanced strategy, Scallop, makes finishing of complex shapes, such as sculptures, as simple as one click.

Key features

Powerful generic strategies:

  • Scallop
  • Helical
  • Plane
  • Waterline

Flexible options for the tool axis control

  • Fixed
  • Rotary
  • Brand new Perpendicular to Toolpath
  • Through Point, Through Curve

Automatic tool and holder collision avoidance. Smooth and predictable tilting achieves better surface finish and puts less stress on the machine or the robot.

Industry-leading technology, unmatched performance. Fast generation of the toolpath makes tweaking of parameters an easy task.

Optimize

Handle singularities, collisions, reach zone limits and redundant axes movements with a dedicated powerful tool: robot axis map

Axes available in robot axis map:

A6 (6th axis), rails, turn table, lead and lean angles.

What is shown on the map:

Out of reach, out of limits, singularities, collisions. Map also shows the toolpath with rapid and work feeds.

Automated:

Just push “Build automatically”. It works in most cases.

Precise control:

Edit any point of the toolpath with simulation preview in real time.

Simulate

Full robotic cell simulation. Material removal simulation.
Smooth and high resolution.

Full robotic cell simulation:

Robot, tables, rails, end effector, fences, fixtures, tool magazine and any other imported geometry is used for simulation.

Material removal, additive, painting:

Dedicated simulation modes for material removal, additive and painting for result control.

Redundant axes control

With SprutCAM Robot you can precisely control robot movement or rails and 1- or 2-axis rotary table
Control movement on rails
1 and 2-axis positioner control
