WORKNC, by Vero Software, to be Presented at IMTS 2016, Sept. 12-17, Chicago, Ill.Prized for its accuracy and reliability, the WORKNC CAM solution, by Vero Software, will be presented Sept. 12-17 at International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) 2016, hosted at McCormick Place in Chicago, Ill.
Featuring more than 2,000 exhibiting companies and over 100,000 visitors, IMTS is one of the largest manufacturing trade shows in the world. As such, it is an ideal platform for seeing the latest in cutting-edge technologies, networking with industry experts and peers, and learning new methods for increasing productivity.
Visitors to IMTS are encouraged to learn more about WORKNC at booth No. E-3114, where demonstrations of new product features and upgrades will be presented.
In addition to improvements to the user-interface and collision-free machining for which it is valued, WORKNC now offers innovative Waveform technology, which cuts down on cycle time while extending tool life.
The Waveform strategy entails maintaining a constant load on the cutting tool by machining from the stock material towards the part geometry. This approach results in a reduced number of intermittent cutting movements, especially in the outer areas, meaning that the tool stays engaged in the material for as long as possible and leads to fewer retracts and air-cutting periods.
The stepover distance automatically adjusts in order to maintain a constant load on the cutter over the complete toolpath trajectory, making it possible to maintain optimal feed rates during the whole cycle, which can attain rates of up to five times faster than a traditional roughing strategy. Machining is performed over the full cutting length of the tool whenever possible, which distributes load evenly.
Additional improvements to WORKNC include the availability of its Auto 5 functionality as a standard module. With Auto 5, users can automatically generate 5-axis toolpath using existing 3-axis or 3+2-axis toolpath, while also taking into consideration the kinematics of the selected 5-axis machine. The intelligent toolpath is dynamically and automatically checked in order to avoid collisions and manage the linear and rotational limits of the machine.
Auto 5 technology allows the use of shorter, more rigid cutters, allowing most of the part to be finished in a single operation.
WORKNC CAM software is the premier automatic CNC software for surface or solid models in mold, die and tooling businesses for 2 to 5-axis CNC programming. All western, Japanese, and Korean automotive makers, and well-known OEMs from a range of other industries, use WORKNC.
