Tool grinding software includes functions for complex-geometry tools

June 17, 2014

NUM offers Numroto tool grinding software, which includes functions for complex-geometry tools such as multihelical end mills with variable-width flute areas. The software accommodates several new types of gash-out on drills and form cutters, allowing the grinding wheel to follow the tool’s ballnose or corner radius to create a defined rake angle along the radius and the gash-out.

The software’s integrated automatic product documentation function has been enhanced to import detailed views from the Flexium 3-D simulator to create realistic drawings of the tool.
