WorkNC is a well-established CAD/CAM solution for mold, die and tooling businesses that boasts qualities such as reliability, high performance and ease of use. WorkNC boosts productivity in highly competitive areas, which helps ensure market gains for companies from a wide range of sectors, including the automotive, aeronautics, shipbuilding, household equipment and consumer goods industries. Thanks to a high level of automation, WorkNC provides numerous strategies for roughing, finishing, optimization, remachining, contouring, curve machining and hole boring virtually at the touch of a button, so no-one needs to be a computer expert to program toolpaths with this solution.
The 2017 R1 edition of WorkNC recently released by Vero Software includes a range of elements with effective new strategies for improving productivity. Another important function of this first version under a new six-month cycle release plan is the Parallel Finishing toolpath based on Vero Software's "Advanced Toolform" technology. The new Parallel Finishing toolpath calculation takes into account the actual physical geometry of the cutting tool, regardless of whether it is a high-feed cutter, a standard tool or any convex tool shape.
Other new functions of WorkNC 2017 R1 that save a great deal of programming time include a unique new feature for 3 axis and 3+2 axis machining. Thanks to 3D Tool Compensation, it will no longer be necessary to program and calculate several different toolpaths in order to obtain the desired result – and that applies whatever controller is fitted to the milling center.
