Wheatley, Oxfordshire, UK. Thursday 10 May 2012: Xisis Ltd announce that they are the UK’s exclusive supplier of directMILL - the first CAM solution to be compatible with all major CAD formats, whilst incorporating the world’s easiest to use, advanced 4 & 5 axis (Indexing & Simultaneous) machining features. The product development, led by Joakim Möller at 5X CNC Technology AB, is a culmination of 25 years on-going development, with over 600 customers throughout the world.
directMILL offers all the features you would expect from a good quality CAM system; advanced 2½, 3, 4 & 5 axis cycles, user-defined and automatic stock models, toolpath simulation (with material removal) and much more. However, it’s the easy to use, advanced 4 & 5 axis tools of directMILL that really stand out.
5-axis machining software has traditionally been expensive and hard to use, resulting in qualified operators being costly and difficult to retain. directMILL is, without doubt, the world’s easiest to use CAM system, so easy that first time users can create 5-axis toolpaths in under 5 minutes.
The advanced 4 & 5 axis features allow users to significantly reduce set-up times, improve tool life, reduce machining time, whilst at the same time improve surface finish, leading to happier customers and repeat business. So no matter what type of work being quoting for, whether it’s blades and impellers, port machining, motor sport, part trimming or indeed any type of 4 and 5 axis machining, no one makes it easier than directMILL.
Until now, low-cost 4 & 5-axis Simultaneous software has been in short supply. Now, with directMILL, advanced 4 & 5-axis Simultaneous is so easy and affordable that it’s within everyone’s reach.
The directMILL Professional package, available for £9,995 ex Vat, provides users with the following features:
- Easiest to use advanced 5-axis CAD +CAM tools available on the market
- 2½, 3, 4 & 5 axis cycles (Indexing + Simultaneous)
- Material removal simulation (including 5-axis)
- Machine simulation (including 5-axis)
- Post-processor/s (including 5-axis)
- 1 day CAD training
- 3 days CAM training
- Annual support and maintenance package
Joakim Möller commented: “We’re delighted to be working with Xisis and their fantastic tools for the CAM market. We are now in a position to help manufacturing companies better compete in today’s tough climate. Manufacturing organisations will soon be able to take advantage of leading edge CAM tools,
optimised for ease of use for their specific requirements, which, in turn, will provide clearly demonstrable and compelling returns on investment.”
