The Proven CAM Solution for Manufacturers of Complex Tooling

Prospector is the leading software application for easy to use, knowledge-based NC programming for manufacturers of complex tools. For over 20 years, Prospector has been the proven solution for generating interference-free 3D cutter path regardless of the complexity of your part data.

Uniquely focused on the manufacturing of complex molds, tools and dies, Prospector has proven itself to be an effective tool for shops of all sizes to achieve maximum productivity as well as higher quality results. This translates to more predictable profitability and shorter delivery times.

AI Comes to NC Programming

Prospector's built-in know-how provides default solutions for all of your machining situations. Prospector's real strength is in its ability to use input from your most knowledgeable programmers and machinist to modify the default solutions into optimal solutions. In short, Prospector is smart enough to remember what your experts tell it about what works in your plant and to use that information over and over again.

3D NC Programs You Can Trust

Part gouges, stock collisions and improper G-code costs time, money and your perhaps worst of all, your reputation as a reliable supplier. No shop can afford missed deadlines or cost overruns. Prospector is the solution to protect against inadvertent human error and software errors because:

  • Checking for part gouges and stock collisions is mandatory. Every 3D program generated by Prospector is checked for part gouges and stock collisions. If there is a problem, the program is flagged as unacceptable. Bottom line: it is not possible for anyone to knowingly run a program that will cost you money.

  • Bullet-proof cutter path generation. Our proprietary software technology has a proven track record of producing interference-free 3D cutter path you can depend on. Regardless of how large, complex or even ill-defined your design data is, Prospector can cut it. With Prospector there are no delays and disruptions because CAD data must be returned for modification because your CAM system can't handle it.

  • Eliminate human programming errors and ensure conformance to your shop's best practices. The unique PowerSource technology allows you to capture and enforce your shop practices and policies to recommend proper program parameters. Inviolable rules can be locked-in with a network-wide administrative database to ensure that they will be followed. Recommending best-practices and preventing the use of improper parameters goes a long way to eliminating programming error.

The Complete Solution for Complex Tools

Prospector provides a comprehensive suite of 3D machining strategies to address all phases of machining from rough to finish and all commonly used mold components including the machining of electrodes. A full suite of 2D strategies is included to address plate work and the gun-drilling of waterlines.

We are fortunate to be located in the metro Detroit & Windsor Canada region. This region of the U.S. is a hotbed of manufacturers of complex tools serving the the automotive industry. For over 30 years, we've worked with these suppliers to meet their needs and continually advance our technology.
