With our extra modules for special applications, you can easily master even the most difficult machining cases.
EUKLID-Tire is EUKLID CAD/CAM’s industry-specific special module, generating in large extent automatically 3D-geometry and machining programs for complex tire profiles. One single function with few parameters is sufficient to describe tire profiles with mathematical precision.
A tire’s structure is quite complicated. The profile contains many individual ribs, positioned on a curved surface, making it impossible to create them with standard surface functions. Then the ribs are trimmed with each other, creating sharp convex edges and concave corners. Though it seems as if a tire profile consists of repeated, equal sections, in reality, each partial segment (pitch) has a different width, and contains compressed as well as stretched ribs.
Impellers are highly complex workpieces which can only be milled with 5-axis machines. On the other hand, impellers are classic family parts. Their construction is always based on a very similar form, the same functionality and the same basic rules apply.
The specially developed EUKLID Impeller module considers base, top and blade surface and executes the complete calculation automatically, including the milling program. To generate the impeller milling program, the collision control due to minimum distance, cutter size, cutter draft angle and the necessary lead angle will be calculated. The lead angle avoids flaws that otherwise could be created by undercuts.
Numerous individual functions of EUKLID Forge, each of them efficient and fast, support the user throughout the forge-specific tasks, including geometry-derivation of the preforging die and trimming tools. The most important functions are partial expansion and calibration.
To define the separation curve between upper und lower forging die is a most challenging task. The separation has to be calculated very precisely, in order to allow easy separation of the workpiece from the die, as well as to allow easy trimming of excess material from the forging. Depending on the workpiece, the separation process of upper and lower die is so complex that the separation curve can not be defined on a simple plane.
