Both machines utilize a trunnion-style, two-axis table and the Heidenhain TNC 640 control. The machines are designed for die/mold, aerospace and high-speed applications that require tight tolerances. The U800 isa gantry machining center with a high-torque table (800 mm platter) with an 80-rpm, twin-torque motor in the A axis and a 100-rpm, single-torque motor in the C axis. It will be shown cut- ting a 20" tall, 4140 steel replica of the famous Venus De Milo sculpture to showcase its rigidity, speed and surface finish capability.

New in FeatureCAM 2019 is the Directed Automated Feature Recognition (DAFR) capability, which automatically recognizes holes, bosses, sides and pockets in a single workflow, which enables faster programming. While standard AFR slices the model in the active Z axis and produces complete features as it makes its way down the model, DAFR allows the user to select the features they want even before recognition begins.
