PROCAM II PUNCH TUTORIAL

CHAPTER 1 GETTING STARTED
This manual is designed to introduce you to the features of the ProCAM Punch system. The information and exercises in this chapter help you understand the process to generate toolpaths and NC code.

CHAPTER 2 TOOLS
This chapter shows you how to work with tools in the turret, create and use optional tool files and use the optional tool library.

CHAPTER 3 INSERTING TOOL PATHS AUTOMATICALLY
The Toolfit is the command you will use the most often to punch parts. In the exercise in Chapter 1, you automatically toolfit a simple part. When you work with complex parts, you need to have the ability to use different modifiers and cut parameters. Typically, ProCAM is able to insert tools on the part automatically based on the modifiers and cut parameters that
you specify. This chapter shows you how to use the Toolfit command.

CHAPTER 4 INSERTING TOOL PATHS SEMIAUTOMATICALLY
The Punch system allows you to manually insert single hit, linear, arc, circular, and window tool paths. These would typically be used when ProCAM could not automatically toolfit an area or when the Toolfit function would not produce the desired results.
Manually inserting tool paths is almost identical to drawing CAD entities except that the tool is attached to the entity. For linear, circular and arc tool paths, you have the ability to determine how the tool will be compensated.

CHAPTER 5 SHAPES AND PATTERNS
This chapter explains how to uses shapes in the Punch system for standard hole configurations and for special hole configurations. The Pattern and Pattern Tool Path commands are also explained.

CHAPTER 6 MICRO JOINTS AND TABS
Shaker tabs are created by leaving narrow strips of material between a part and the sheet of material. These narrow strips of material are commonly referred to as tabs, wire joints or micro joints. The Punch system provides several methods for creating micro joints as explained in this chapter.

CHAPTER 7 MACROS/SUBROUTINES
The Macro command on the Punch toolbar is used to define tool paths that can be called up in a subprogram. This chapter includes exercises that show you how to define and call macros.

CHAPTER 8 REPOSITIONING
If the tool paths in a part are not completely within the table limits, you can use the Reposition command to manually or automatically reposition the sheet to do more punching.This chapter includes exercises for manual and automatic repositioning.

CHAPTER 9 WORKING WITH TOOL PATHS
After you have inserted tool paths on a part, you can use commands on the Punch and Utility toolbars to manipulate tool paths. This chapter explains the functions you can use to reduce the time required to punch a part and get the most out of your machine.This chapter includes exercises for creating a part grid layout, reviewing the order of tool paths, reordering CAM cycles and optimizing tool paths.

CHAPTER 10 ADDITIONAL PUNCH COMMANDS
The chapter explains how to use the following commands on the Punch toolbar:
The Attribute command is used to attach certain functions to CAM entities. Attributes are non-geometric properties, values and identifiers that are attached to geometric entities.
The Boundary command is used with the Profile Tool Path command to define the entities to be machined and the path and direction of the cutter. This command can also be used to check for any breaks or overlapping entities in a part you are going to
toolfit.
The Profile Tool Path command is used to insert a profile tool path offset a distance from a boundary. Typically, this command is used when you have non-standard punch parts (for example, parts with splines and ellipses).
