Tool Data for UG CAM Made Really Easy

UG CAM Interface

Concise Tool Information from Central Tool Database.



With WinTool Professional you conveniently run your central Tool Library. For each NC-operation you choose the best-suited tool in the library directly within your UG CAM, import tool data, and automatically generate a precise 3D Model. Time consuming clarification of cutting length, collision length, profile radius etc. can be avoided. For each NC-program a detailed tool list is automatically being generated and customized for use in tool crib and pre-setting. In addition, other systems can easily access the central WinTool Tool Library, which allows for sound work processes and easy NC-programming!

Work Process

    Select and import single tool or entire tool list directly within UG
    Simultaneously import cutting data from tool library or have new data calculated
    Add additional or newly assembled tools later on
