Trade Fair Visitors to See 5-axis Advanced Toolform Toolpaths
WORKNC, the 2-to-5-axis CAM solution from Hexagon’s Production Software stable, will participate for the first time in the "Morocco Industry Expo Fair" from October 30 to November 2 at the International Fair of Casablanca.
Maroc Industrie Expo is the Moroccan professional event dedicated to industrial subcontracting, machinery, equipment, maintenance and services for industry, and has been confirming its position as a reference event for professionals in the sector for seven years.
WORKNC has been active in the field of national education and automotive and aeronautical sectors in Morocco for five years.
Visitors to stand 4/10, aisle A will see live demonstrations of how WORKNC comes close to ‘One-Click CAM,” with efficient and automated toolpaths that reduce machining times, extend tool life, improve surface finishing accuracy, and allow better machine utilization and CNC programming.
Two major topics were at the heart of developments in the latest version, which take the software to the next level. The advanced toolform toolpath is extended to 5-axis programming for all types of tool shapes. It allows 5-axis toolpaths to be calculated with barrel, oval, parabolic or any other given shape tools on the surfaces of the part, including negative offsets (oversizes). Tools with circular sections allow a softer contact point, providing the ability to use larger steps without compromizing accessibility. This is because the diameter of the tool body remains relatively small. WORKNC's ‘Advanced Toolform’ solution allows multiple surfaces to be machined at the same time, on solid or surface CAD models from any source.
It is also expected that visitors will be particularly interested in WORKNC’s specialist CAD for CAM WORKNC | Designer module, which provides the ultimate solution for taking geometry through to manufacture, including fixture design and part repair and modification.
Demonstrations of the module will show its versatility through:
- Intuitive user interface
- Easy to use and use
- Direct modeling of CAD environment
- Unique and unified solution for solid designs
- Powerful sketches with automatic creation areas
- Repair of imported data surfaces
- Extensive range of CAD interfaces
The stand will also feature three further solutions from Hexagon: WORKXPLORE, for visualizing and analyzing 3D models directly from CAD files without using the original CAD software; WORKPLAN, the first Production Management solution to combine ERP (integrated management software package) and MES (industrial process management) functions in a single database; and NCSIMUL, the toolpath optimization and simulation solution.
