Discover Vero's EDGECAM Software Solution at the SIANE Trade Fair in ToulouseRenowned for its ability to program any type of machine tool, EDGECAM, the solution for production CAM, will be exhibited from the 18th to 20th of October at the SIANE 2016 Trade Fair which will be held at the Exhibition Centre in Toulouse.
With over 700 companies represented and more than 9000 visitors, the SIANE Trade Fair is recognized as the major event for manufacturers in the South of France. Toulouse is already famous as the European capital for aeronautic and aerospace engineering but the SIANE trade Fair also attracts other sectors of activity such as the automotive, electronic and medical device industries.
Hall 6 Stand 6Z05, Vero Software will present its Version 2016R2 solutions: VISI, the fully integrated CAD/CAM solution; WORKNC, the 2 to 5 axis CAM solution; WORKXPLORE, the collaborative Viewer & Analyzer solution along with EDGECAM, the production oriented Turning and Milling solution, an indispensable requirement in the Aeronautics sector.
Aeronautic applications regularly require 3, 4 and 5 axis lathes but nowadays multifunction mill/turn machines are often the most suitable alternative. EDGECAM offers easy and safe programming of these types of multi-task machine tools. EDGECAM initially detects the machining environment, fully simulates milling and turning operations - the rotary movements of the stock and the spindle to detect any eventual collisions and ensures a totally secure environment. Designed to guarantee minimal production leadtimes, EDGECAM integrates the "Waveform Roughing" strategy from Vero Software offering users the advantage of a high speed machining cycle and, at the same time, greatly improved tool service life.
The Version 2016R2 of EDGECAM is now a 64-bit application. The program can now load very large solid models 20 times quicker than the previous version.
The Rough Turning cycle now offers a Ramp strategy. It is used for turning deep areas with double-edged inserts while ensuring longer tool service life because the contact point on the insert varies constantly thus avoiding cutting edge chipping. This new strategy can also be used on sloping surfaces.
The latest version of EDGECAM also offers improved collision detection and NC code for hole machining. Through interaction with the clamping system updating command, drilling cycles can avoid collisions with clamps using retract and safety plane distances.
