Sescoi to launch its high-speed 3D viewer in Germany at AMB
The AMB exhibition in Stuttgart, Germany from 9th to 13th September will be the launch pad for WorkXPlore 3D, Sescoi’s high-speed 3D viewer, in the German market.
The award-winning WorkXPlore 3D will help German companies to improve collaborative working at lower cost by making it unnecessary to purchase multiple CAD systems. The system can import very large and complex files from leading CAD systems at very high speed. Tools within the software allow the data to be shared around an organization so that engineers can interrogate the design, checking information such as dimensions, draft angles and volumes. By marking-up the shared CAD information, design changes can be evaluated quicker and more efficiently leading to a reduction in a product’s delivery time, an increase its quality and a faster return on investment.
Sescoi will also be demonstrating the latest version of its automatic CAM/CAD system, WorkNC G3, which is the culmination of 20 years of research and development and includes a new, easy to use, interface that has been designed for ergonomic operation and integrates design, analysis, toolpath creation and verification into one environment.
WorkNC G3 is unique in its approach to 5-axis machining. Its Auto 5 module automatically translates 3 and 3+2 axis programs into 5-axis, enabling companies to take advantage of the capabilities of multi axis machine tools and confidently manufacture highly complex parts. Because WorkNC G3 is automatic, 5-axis toolpaths have all the powerful roughing, finishing, rest material, cutterpath smoothing and fluid transitions available in 3-axis machining. During programming, the software considers the kinematics of each machine tool, introducing unwind and flip movements so that it does not exceed travel limits and avoids workpiece collisions. For specific 5-axis applications such as machining blades and impellers, WorkNC G3 includes dedicated routines, giving the user a high level of control while benefiting from the software’s collision avoidance algorithms.
Sescoi has used its considerable experience in the make to order and engineer to order industry sector to build an ERP system tailored to these companies’ requirements. WorkPLAN Enterprise ERP is the latest generation of its software and offers tools to analyze CAD and CAM data, provide accurate quotations, monitor and process sales orders, and control and schedule production. In addition, it keeps track of costs, purchasing and stock levels, maintains quality compliance and provides key performance indicators while reducing administrative effort. Integrating these processes can produce significant cost savings and efficiency improvements for companies, enabling them to make decisions and take timely action based on live and accurate data.
All Sescoi’s software will be demonstrated, with free and trial versions available, on their stand C58 in Hall 4 at the AMB exhibition.
