Vero Software has launched the latest version of WorkNC – a specialised CAD/CAM solution for 2- to 5- axis machining.
WorkNC 2017R2 takes advantage of the latest improvements made to Vero Software’s Waveform Roughing. WorkNC Brand Manager Miguel Johann says: “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.”
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.” 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 also fulfills the users’ quest for further time savings and optimal surface quality.”
