WorkNC 2017 R2 Improves Roughing



Vero Software has launched the latest version of WorkNC, a specialized CAD/CAM solution for 2- to 5-axis machining. WorkNC 2017 R2 takes advantage of the latest improvements made to the Vero Software Waveform Roughing strategy.

"Faster and safer than ever, the Waveform strategy significantly improves standard roughing technologies with its consistent material removal while increasing the tool and machine service life," said WorkNC Brand Manager Miguel Johann.

WorkNC Waveform Roughing takes further strides in 2017 R2 by reducing machining times, as well as improving cutting conditions. Toolpath optimization is achieved by taking tool load into consideration during intermediate Z-step calculations.

"The Waveform technology has been designed to perform roughing operations at very high speeds and requires toolpath security control," Johann said.

A new option allows users to force the initial lead-in and the final lead-out to a secure point above the stock in case of a difference between the virtual stock and the real stock on the machine. "WorkNC 2017R2 fulfills the users' quest for further timesavings and optimal surface quality," Johann said.

The new Parallel Finishing toolpath makes use of the innovative Advanced Toolform technology, which offers efficient high-feed cutter management. "Toolpath calculations are based on the real shape of the cutter, which ensures optimal surface quality and machining times reduced by up to 80%," said a company spokesperson.

The Die Flats Finishing toolpath now features a new option that enables radial stepovers to ensure a fluid trajectory and the elimination of sharp angles. "This results in improved surface quality and reduced machining times," said Johann.

"WorkNC has long been recognized for its standard collision-detection functions, covering machining environment, toolholder, stock and the machining center to secure toolpaths," continued Johann. "WorkNC 2017R2 further enhances process security by systematically calculating collisions and out-of-limit conditions."

The CAD module has also been improved in 2017R2. All machining preparation operations (part, machining set-up, clamping systems) can now be carried out in the CAD module. When creating a Workzone, the complete assembly is exported into the machining context at the same time as the part itself. It is no longer required to reposition assemblies with respect to the part.

In 2017R2, WorkNC is designed to automate and simplify the Machining Sequence process, giving step-by-step assistance during toolpath programming. The Machining Sequence process now informs the user of any missing data in the Workzone, such as views, curves, point, etc., allowing for last-minute corrections.

"WorkNC is also investing for the future," said Johann. "The latest version introduces its educational license to prepare tomorrow's users. WorkNC for Education includes a student edition, giving students the opportunity to practice their skills and gain experience in all the latest CAM strategies."
