Mastercam Swiss Expert popular with niche specialist engineers


A simulation of the Mastercam Swiss Expert

The newly released Mastercam Swiss Expert is designed to control a variety of Swiss-style NC machines, and is popular with watch-making, medical devices, dental, automotive, and electronics companies – all known for the requirement of extremely small, but very precise parts.

The Swiss Expert is known for supporting an unlimited number of axes and channels, and for realistic simulation of the entire machine and its tools. Mastercam Swiss Expert reduces startup time significantly, is ideal for optimizing cycle times, and supports all types of tooling.

Mastercam’s Swiss Expert is completely solids based, allowing for quick toolpath creation from solid faces, edges, loops, and turned profiles. There is no need to create additional geometry to cut your part.

Efficient cutting means more than just programming a toolpath. Mastercam Swiss Expert gives users a set of tools that impact the entire process, including a complete understanding of how machines allow for streamlined programming, from toolpaths to synchronization to simulation.

It selects tools and build 3D tool assemblies in the comprehensive Tool Manager. Tools, tool assemblies, and tool equipment are fully supported in machine simulation.

The Swiss Expert saves tools and cutting strategies into libraries for future use on similar or families of parts.

Users can view operations and add synchronisation points graphically using the Sync Manager, and sync points that the machine cannot execute are excluded.

Mastercam Swiss Expert has all tools necessary to graphically optimize part cycle times and avoid collisions. With the Sync Manager, users can use an unlimited number of channels, drag, drop, and sync operations to one another. It can view all machining parameters and modify them on the fly if necessary.

The Swiss Expert has automatic collision detection.

It can:

  • Catch collisions in a virtual environment before damaging expensive equipment
  • Accurate machine models allow you to be confident in the representation of machining processes
  • Automatically jump to any point in the simulation by selecting a location on the Gantt chart
  • Simultaneously view NC code for all channels while simulating your part

As well it can expand and contract the timeline for trouble-free viewing of the part process, use colours to help identify which toolpaths belong to which tool group or channel, and quickly view the time each operation takes to complete.

Mastercam Swiss Expert lets you fully and safely simulate your project on a virtual machine before it reaches your shop floor. Mastercam Swiss Expert’s simulation provides full simulation of every moving component of your machine, including material, main and sub spindles, all tool holders, and part handling devices.
