Software for a round, buttress thread and trapezoid thread NC turning

ROPECAM produces NC-code for any outer or inner diameter rope thread. Programming taper for the rope thread, the ROPECAM allows declivity for the rope thread profile.

You don’t need expensive special tools, with RopeCAM you can use standard turning tools. RopeCAM apply also for a cable barrels thread NC-programming. Example: Rd DIN 405-1 thread can be machined standard turning tool.

The new RopeCAM 2024 enables oscillating chip breaking. With materials whose chip does not break, a long, unbroken chip ”serpentine” is produced during threading, this easily breaks the tool insert and removing the chip is problematic, especially in internal threading. The new RopeCAM 2024 solves this problem with oscillating chip cutting.
