ACcam.easy

The excellent Fikus for wire EDM developed for GFMS machines

Leading solution for Wire EDM specifically developed for CUT series machines

ACcam.easy for +GF+ Georg Fischer Wirecut EDM machines offers a flexible and complete solution, specifically designed to produce 2 and 4 axis wire-paths easily and quickly, using a wide range of innovative software tools. The AgieCharmilles CUTx0P series, CUTx00mS/Sp series and CUTx00/CUT200C/CU200P (Millennium) series machine technologies are implemented with optimized technological tables.

Key features of ACcam.easy

  • Reduce time-to-market and work hours drastically.
  • Shorten geometry construction and part definition efforts.
  • Program your AC Wire-cut EDM machine using the machine specific Wizard and technological databases.
  • Complete your job easily and safely and let ACcam.easy> Wire EDM’s Manager guide you through the whole and logical EDM process.
  • Take advantage of the most advanced wire path algorithms calculation for 2X to 4X cuts.
  • ACcam.easy offers the first commercial solution for 4X no-core-cuts.

Feature Recognition

ACcam.easy includes Feature Recognition

The CAM manager leads the user through the logical sequential process of the Wire EDM programming, from defining the geometry and creating the part to cut, to the process definition and calculation.

Create your geometry

Whether you have to build your geometry from a drawing or you get it from a CAD system and you must modify it, ACcam.easy offers powerful functions to create and edit your CAD work:

  • Functions to generate wireframe geometry
  • Functions to modify geometry extract contours and work with surfaces
  • Create gears, rack gears, texts and dimensions
  • Use the ‘fastedit‘ functions to quickly move, copy, scale and modify the geometry

Specific CNC programs for your machine

Specific Wizard and technological databases for your AC Wire-cut EDM machine

The dedicated Wizard for every specific machine, allow you to have your job ready in just seconds, easily and safely. Fikus will generate the machine optimal cutting strategy for your specific machine and job.

The ACcam.easy Wire EDM’s Manager completes your job easily and safely

AC CAM Easy can generate your machine programs. Using the dedicated Wizard for your machine you can have your job ready in just seconds, easily and safely.

Once you have finished your CAD tasks, you can start to work with the intuitive, easy to use and efficient ACcam.easy CAM solution for wire EDM.

Machining simulation

Machining simulation

You can use ACcam.easy to generate your machine programs. Using the dedicated Wizard for your machine you can have your job ready in just seconds, easily and safely. Just select your base geometry and click on the Wizard icon. Set the parameters for your machine and the target quality and the Wizard will do the rest. The Collar Wizard helps you to generate all the cuts for collar dies according to the machine technology and your requirements.

Build your part

Build the part to cut by selecting one or two contours, either 2D or 3D, or even surfaces. If you select two contours, use the ACcam.easy synchro tool to easily and interactively synchronize them. Select one contour and apply a constant draft angle, a multiple constant draft angle or variable draft angles.

ACcam.easy offers other powerful tools like technological points, possibility to modify corners and generate partial clearance, templates, simulation, verification, reports and many more to make your work faster, safer and easier.

The first commercial solution for 4X no-core-cuts

Just apply one of the cutting procedures: 2X cut, 4X cut or no-core-cut. Set the parameters and you are ready. Do you need more cuts? You can copy and paste your procedures to apply more cuts. Reorder your procedures by just ‘drag and drop’ or even by type of cut.

Integrated in several GFMS CUT series machines

ACcam.easy is a special version of Metalcam’s Fikus Visualcam developed together with +GF+ AgieCharmilles to be integrated on the CUTx0P/CUTx00mS/Sp Wirecut EDM machines and designed to obtain the best results in other AgieCharmilles’ machines.

AC CAM Easy Basic Package comes integrated on the CUTx0P/x00mS/Sp controller and is an option for the CUTX00 machines. It can be optionally upgraded to the Advanced or Professional Packages. ACcaam.easy for PC, available only with the Advanced or Professional Packages, can be used to program the CUTx0P/x00mS/Sp and the CUT200/300/400 machine series.
