CTL is committed to being at the forefront of programming engineering. All our CNC part programmes are produced using the latest computers running PATHTRACE EDGECAM software.
This gives us the facility to obtain a large scale representation of a work piece and cutting parameters, and to quickly re-process a program for use on an alternative machine. We also have the facility to accept IGES/DXF data files through our high bandwidth broadband connection, which has been produced by our customers computer software.
The system has recently been enhanced by the addition of full 3D modelling software which will interface with the updated software on our CMM’s to give us a "reverse engineering capability."
As an example of the program engineering process, the exact specifications required to produce the geometric propeller image shown below
