We are proud to announce the public release of HSM Performance Pack 2020 which is available for purchase as of today. We have spend the last five years developing HSM Performance Pack – our powerful add-on for Mastercam that offers highly specialized features alongside all the standard 3- and 5-axis functionality expected from any modern CAD/CAM system.
HSM Performance Pack includes an impressive set of machining strategies which are all built on our own new, state-of-the-arts, multi-core, 64-bit kernel. Every single strategy has been developed for maximum performance, flexibility and to accommodate customer requirements.
Every aspect of HSM Performance Pack has undergone extensive testing in real production environments and has been put to the test in shops, by our test users, for years. User feedback has and still is an essential part in shaping HSM Performance Pack and has resulted in custom and highly specialized features being built into the software.
Specialized features include:
- Undercut support for 3- and 5-axis toolpaths
- Flexible and feature packed 5-axis tilt
- Advanced Hybrid and Pencil strategies
- Automatic drilling with holder avoidance, optimal ordering and more
- Spiral machining for Constour3D and Scallop strategies
- Many holder avoidance options such as Pull away, Trim, Avoid stock, 5-axis tilt and more.
HSM Performance Pack 2020 includes the following 3 and 5-axis toolpath strategies which can be fully customized in our easy-to-understand dialogs.
