July 27, 2015 -- Vero Software is increasing its presence at EMO, as three of its Italian resellers will be exhibiting different brands.
Vero Solutions are showing the latest VISI release, V21, containing more than 340 updates, continuing its emphasis on intelligent solutions for mould making and stamping die industries. Significant enhancements to VISI Machining and VISI PEPS-Wire include an updated GUI and new toolpath algorithms with improved point distribution and toolpath accuracy.
Updated CAD developments include a new process for managing multiple instances of the same geometry within an assembly. For example, multi-insert moulds and dies can now be managed with a single ‘master’ part which will automatically update all references of the same geometry if any part modification is required. Importantly, standard catalogue components will also be managed by the multi-instance technology.
VISI 21 represents a release with significant CAM focus, including a fresh new look to the CAM Navigator, command consolidation, and new dialogue box consistency within all milling operations, dramatically simplifying toolpath generation. Feature tree grouping, management of multiple setups/features along with drag & drop capabilities within the tree, make the feature list and navigation extremely efficient. All features in the tree can be moved, edited, mirrored, and with a new dedicated “undo” mechanism for CAM, user mistakes can be easily rectified.

Edgecam 2015 R2 is being shown on the ProCAM booth. Highlights include an upgrade to the multi spindle lathe set up, a new port machining module for its renowned 5-axis cycle, and significant time savings through the enhanced hole cycle. Overall, Edgecam 2015 R2 has around 50 items of new and enhanced functionality.
Enhanced machine tool configuration ensures manufacturers can avoid potential collisions while machining on lathes with main and sub spindles – the sub spindle locations can be repositioned using the new ‘Offset X location’ function. And with the increasing popularity in mill-turn machines, further evolution in Machine Tool configurations means users can now create ‘table-table,’ ‘head-table’ and ‘nutated table-table’ machines, including TNC control.

And Taglio S.rl are demonstrating WorkNC V24, which further improves CAM operator productivity and machining quality. The new Rest Material Display has been enhanced, reducing machining preparation times. Other innovative features include symmetry functions, importing 2D features directly from native NX files, quicker collision calculations, and new functions for working on STL models.
Visitors to booth B12 in Pavilion 4 at EMO will see that WorkNC Version 24 features a set of standard collision detection functions covering the machining environment, tool holder, stock and machining centre. For 3-axis and 3+2 axis the WorkNC collision detection module indicates the shortest possible cutter than can be used. For 5-axis the Auto5 module determines the best possible conditions for a user-defined cutting tool. Special attention’s been given to optimise cutting conditions for features such as rubs and narrow slots.
