Sescoi to demo aerospace productivity gains at European shows
Sescoi will be demonstrating the aerospace capabilities of its WorkNC G3 Automatic CAM/CAD software, WorkPLAN Enterprise ERP system, MyWorkPLAN job management, and its new WorkXPlore 3D software for high speed viewing, mark-up and analysis of CAD models, at upcoming shows including the SIANE exhibition in Toulouse, running 14-16 October (stand C34-1), followed by the 2008 AIRTEC show in Frankfurt from 11th to 13th November (Hall 3, Stand F82).
Sescoi will showcase WorkNC G3’ powerful tools for the machining of complex aerospace components, including specific 5-axis routines for blade, impeller and blisk machining as well as its revolutionary Auto 5, which will translate 3-axis and 3+2 axis toolpaths into 5-axis, automatically.
Aerospace parts demand high quality finishes produced from reliable cutterpaths – Sescoi engineers will demonstrate WorkNC G3’ smooth toolpaths and collision avoidance methodology tailored to each individual machine tool, enabling machinists to use the shortest and most rigid cutters and hence safely achieve the highest possible accuracy and surface quality. WorkNC G3’s performance in this respect is already appreciated by WorkNC aerospace customers who include Eurocopter, Snecma and a number of Tier 1 suppliers.
For engineers and make-to-order companies in the sector, Sescoi will be previewing the latest functionality in WorkPLAN Enterprise, its specialist ERP system. Starting with quotations and sales order processing, WorkPLAN Enterprise manages scheduling, purchasing, invoicing, quality and traceability. For smaller applications Sescoi will provide demonstrations of its MyWorkPLAN job management software, which can be migrated to the full WorkPLAN Enterprise system as requirements develop. Both systems provide live information about job progress and costs which will help managers to maximize profitability and productivity while meeting the demanding quality and traceability standards prevalent in aerospace.
Sescoi’s new, award-winning WorkXPlore 3D collaborative viewer will be a real boon to aerospace companies The system is capable of importing very large CAD files from a wide range of systems at very high speed, enabling engineers and managers to rapidly analyse, mark-up and interrogate complex parts and assemblies and share these with suppliers and customers. Not only will companies save the cost of running multiple CAD packages, but WorkXPlore 3D will also help them to achieve better design solutions and shorter delivery times.
