Maquitec visitors flock to see WorkNC G3 V19
Sescoi was delighted with the response it received when it previewed WorkNC G3 V19, the latest version of its CAM/CAD software, and demonstrated MyWorkPLAN, its job management software for small and medium sized custom manufacturing companies, at the Maquitec exhibition in Barcelona. This year’s show was the biggest yet with over 21,000 visitors and more than 1,000 exhibitors, reflecting the optimism in the metalworking industry.
On the stand, Sescoi collaborated with machine tool distributor Juan Martin, running cutting demonstrations on an AWEA Model AF-610 supplied by the company. This is the first of many joint exhibitions and activities planned by the two companies which will also extend to the use of WorkNC to program Juan Martin’s Mori Seiki and AWEA machine tools at training centers across Catalonia.

Both Sescoi and Juan Martin work in partnership with their customers to supply the most advanced software and machine tools, which will enable clients to realize the best possible return from their investment. Sescoi Iberia’s WorkNC Product Manager Oriol Solà elaborated, “Juan Martin and Sescoi share a common philosophy and goal, which is to optimize productivity and profitability through high quality products and technology transfer.”
Sescoi is continually enhancing its software and WorkNC G3 V19 is its third generation. The new G3 interface integrates design, data interrogation, CAM and simulation into one ergonomic screen, making the software even easier and more intuitive to use. The scope of machining cycles which include trochoidal tool movements has also been extended to include keyways and curves to simplify the high speed machining of hard materials, while 5-axis toolpaths have been refined to improve the fluidity of cutter movement. In addition, advances in simulation, collision detection and proximity warning add to the reliability of the toolpaths generated by the system.
Software benefits also extend to job management, with Sescoi’s MyWorkPLAN system. Companies can use it to prepare accurate quotations, plan and monitor production, and obtain live reports on costs and delivery status. Designed for SMEs, MyWorkPLAN makes use of existing skills, and investment in commonly used office software, making implementation and training quick and easy.
The high volume of visitors to its stand confirmed Sescoi’s view that successful engineering companies are demanding the best technology available, and that long term collaboration to optimize key business drivers will ensure an implementation that returns the best results.
