upon request Increasing process reliability and productivity with WFL measuring cycles
Special cycles

Due to a needs-based cycle configuration, branch-specific requirements are handled quickly and efficiently. An experienced trainer supports you in developing a possible machining concept with WFL special cycles for your individual application.

Special applications:

  • Machining of eccentric workpieces
  • Emergency retraction routines in case of power failure or overload in one or several axes (iControl)
  • Actuating tools can be used to create rotationally symmetric turning contours on a stationary workpiece
upon request Application and programming of special cycles
iControl

The safety of a workpiece, tool and machine is a central objective in every machining process.

Due to the separate registration of all cutting force components in process monitoring, tool breakage is, for example, reliably detected.

6 hours Application and use of iControl. Increasing process reliability of existing and future programs.
WFL GearCAM

WFL GearCAM is a programming software for various gearing solutions, e.g. spur and bevel gears. The training covers the different functionalities of GearCAM such as the definition of machining strategies and
tools from the integrated tool database, roughing strategies, deburring as well as the final simulation.

Your benefits:

  • Flexible process
  • Very precise, good graphics
  • Easy to use
  • Short processing times
  • Utilization of the stable and highly precise B-axis
  • Utilization of the large Y axis stroke
upon request Quick and easy programming of gears
