WorkNC by Vero Software

Description

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.
