Vero Increases Presence At EMO
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, focusing on advanced technologies both in its design and manufacturing aspects, featuring innovative, unique technologies included for the first time.
VISI has always maintained a leading position in managing large amounts of CAD data, and ease of use for definition of mould tools and assemblies. Visitors to EMO will see how these key features are extended in the new release to include dedicated tools for creating and managing multiple cavities within a single tool, enabling components to be modified quicker and more efficiently. Users will find higher levels of data and improved tools for creating geometry.
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 ribs and narrow slots.
