September 15, 2014 -- HASCO, one of the world's leading suppliers of modular standard mould units and accessories will be featuring demonstrations on its stand at Interplas, showing how VISI, from Vero Software can connect to the HASCO libraries, leverage the digital data and automate the design and manufacturing process.
The demonstration focuses on a dual ejection tool with collapsing cores, showing the considerable benefits of 3D development using a combination of VISI design tools and standard components alongside a mixture of custom HASCO products. As a leading supplier of standard mould plates and kits, along with components such as system plates, guide pillars, ejector pins, collapsing cores or hot runner solutions, HASCO simplifies and standardises mouldmaking – maximising productivity, quality and innovation.
VISI includes a large selection of internal HASCO components, along with the correct 2D drawing views, BOM information, and CAM instructions, allowing manufacturers to automatically machine their plates. As well as reading external HASCO components from the Universal module or from the online store, the DAKO application from HASCO can also be used to create a native WKF file for VISI, which can be automatically loaded into the tool design.
Commenting on the partnership, HASCO Managing Director, Neil Moseley says “Hasco recognize the importance of efficient mould design and construction, and our collaboration with Vero will enhance our services further.”
The HASCO demonstration can be seen at stand A12 in Hall 4 at the NEC in Birmingham from September 30 to October 2. Further demonstrations of other VISI applications, including model analysis, plastic flow front simulation, and 3D tool design will take place on the Vero stand, A6 in Hall 4.
Part of the Vero Software Group, VISI is acknowledged as one of the world's leading PC based CAD/CAM solutions for the Mould & Die industries. It offers a unique combination of applications, fully integrated wireframe, surface and solid modelling, and comprehensive 2D, 3D and 5 Axis machining strategies with dedicated high speed routines. Industry specific applications for plastic injection tool design, including material flow analysis and progressive die design with step-by-step unfolding, provide the toolmaker with unsurpassed levels of productivity. VISI offers dedicated solutions that eliminate the links between varying software suppliers and the solid-to-surface or CAD/CAM geometry conversions required by traditional systems.
Vero Software is part of Hexagon, a leading global provider of design, measurement and visualisation technologies that enable customers to design, measure and position objects, and process and present data.
