Sescoi brings new CAM/CAD and management software to MACH
Sescoi will be exhibiting its flagship CAM/CAD software, WorkNC G3, at MACH 2008, 21st to 25th April on stand 4590. The company has chosen the show for the UK launch of its new WorkPLAN Enterprise ERP system, its latest MyWorkPLAN V2 job management software as well as WorkXPlore 3D, its new visualisation, interrogation and analysis package.
Sescoi marks the 20th anniversary of WorkNC this year and will be demonstrating WorkNC G3, the third generation of its automatic CAM/CAD software at the show. By using its expertise in machining and by working in partnership with its customers, it has created a system which sets new standards in ease of use and automation, the company’s guiding principles since its formation in 1987. WorkNC G3’s single ergonomic interface combines design, analysis, CNC programming, toolpath editing and verification into one environment, making the software’s operation fast and intuitive. New fluid toolpath algorithms provide smoother transitions in WorkNC G3’s automated cycles, while 5-axis routines have been extended with extra options in Auto 5, which automatically translates 3-axis movements into 5-axis, and new cycles for impeller and blade machining.
The levels of automation in WorkNC G3 bring the cost benefits of 5-axis machining within the grasp of every company, enabling them to use short rigid cutters and machine more of the part in one setting.
WorkPLAN Enterprise provides ERP capability without complexity for project based applications. The system brings together the functions often carried out by disparate software packages, unifying quotation, purchasing, stock, planning, sales processing, quality, time and performance management.
Tools within the software enable analysis of CAD data, the viewing of CAM data, and the retrieval of historic information for accurate and fast quotations. Gantt charts control the progress of production updated from real time shop floor information, highlighting deviations from the plan. Management of the product lifecycle is achieved through central storage of documentation, simplifying traceability and after sales service. Reports for key performance indicators can be tailored to suit each company, helping them to make the best use of resources and maximise profitability.
Companies looking for the latest in job management will be able to see demonstrations of MyWorkPLAN V2 on Sescoi’s stand. Its ability to link to a range of external software packages allows reuse of existing skills and rapid implementation. The system’s core job management functions controlling quotations, job tracking and scheduling can now be complemented by a number of manufacturing-related modules allowing users to upgrade to the full WorkPLAN Enterprise system as their requirements expand.
New from Sescoi is WorkXPlore 3D. Designed for collaborative working, users can interrogate, mark up, analyse and share CAD data from multiple sources. By supporting 2D and 3D CAD data including Catia V5, Unigraphics, Pro/E, Parasolid, Acis, IGES, ISO Toolpaths, DWG and HPGL, the software makes it possible to work with very large models from multiple CAD systems simultaneously. Available in Collaborator and Manufacturing Pro versions, WorkXPlore 3D saves the cost of acquisition and training for CAD packages and promotes an integrated working environment. The software has been awarded the Productivity Excellence prize which will be presented at the forthcoming Industrie show in Paris. On their stand at MACH, Sescoi will be giving away a free viewer version of WorkXPlore 3D which also includes full Collaborator functionality for 30 days.
Sescoi will be bringing a new a range of software solutions to stand 4590 at MACH this year, thanks to its software development skills and the experience it has built up from 20 years of working with manufacturers. Ease of use and automation principles throughout the product range deliver packages which enhance productivity and profitability, yet remain simple to learn and operate.
