New CAM and Viewer Features: Communication and Time Saving

Vero Software will unveil the new features of WorkNC, the automatic CAD/CAM solution for 2 to 5 axis machining.

VISI_Lyon_WorkXplore_2017R1_post1WorkNC2017 will demonstrate further enhancements to its expertise in efficient and reliable machining: toolpath precision, time savings, cost reduction and high surface quality. WorkNC 2017 integrates ‘Advanced Toolform’, the new technology from Vero Software, into its Parallel Finishing toolpath. Toolpath calculations are based on the real shape of the cutter and machining times can be reduced by up to 70%.

Among the improvements expected by WorkNC’s established users, the ‘Dynamic Calculation Queueing’ function allows operators to add calculations for newly created toolpaths, to postprocess them and check for eventual tool holder collisions without having to wait until the end of calculations currently in progress.

In Edgecam 2017, the production oriented CAM solution for turning and turn/milling, the time required for assembling pre-existing parts on a mounting device has been significantly reduced. The new ‘Tombstone’ feature offers important time savings as operations such as loading, inserting, merging and rationalizing components has been fully automated.

The 2017 edition of WorkXplore, the powerful collaborative Viewer/Analyzer, offers new functionality which enhances its visualization, analysis and collaborative tools which are vital to its users.

Some new interfaces have also been integrated into version 2017 of WorkXplore:
•    Export to PDF 3D format
•    Export to JTOpen format
•    Read and export MEG files.

The addition of these new export formats reinforces the collaborative aspect of WorkXplore. The possibilities for diffusing information to the outside world are, once again, further enhanced.

Integrated CAD/CAM/ERP job management: a complete digital channel

During INDUSTRIE 2017, Vero Software will emphasize the importance of its range of CAD/CAM/ERP solutions to design, modelize, quote, analyze, simulate, program and machine parts while also measuring the cost effectiveness of a project throughout the different production phases. WorkPLAN 2017, the ERP/Project Management solution, proposes different interfaces with other CAD/CAM and Viewer applications from Vero Software to meet the specific needs of different sectors of activity (design, tooling, laser cutting, custom manufacturing…).

Synergy with Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence products: Reverse engineering and part inspection

Synergy between the Vero Software range of products and those of Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence continues to progress. VISI 2017, the complete CAD/CAM solution now includes Reverse Engineering tools. In the never-ending search for improved productivity by concentrating on improved machining quality, Vero Software will present the new ‘Vero Inspect’ application which, in tandem with Edgecam, VISI and WorkNC, allows parts to be directly controlled on the milling and turn/milling centers using m&h probes from Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence.  Different probing cycles are available offering a wide range of inspection data for real-time machining adjustments and for checking the finished parts.

Machines present on the stand:

VISI_Lyon_WorkXplore_2017R1_post6CNC Machining Center

Live demonstrations of Vero Software solutions on a DMG MORI machining center from the 5-axis DMU 40 evo linear range fitted with an m&h probe will be running throughout the trade fair.  The m&h probes measure parts machined on mills, machining centers, lathes, mill/turn machines, grinding machines, special machines and robots.

3D Printers

The Absolute 2 3D Printer from QUALUP SAS will be showcased for the first time. Live 3D printouts will be run throughout the trade fair using a Reverse Engineering process involving a portable ‘Romer Absolute Arm’ measuring unit from Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, the VISI 2017 integrated CAD/CAM solution and the Absolute 2 3D Printer.
