WorkNC G3 user seminars popular throughout Japan
Sescoi, the company behind Japan’s most used CAM system WorkNC, ran a series of 12 WorkNC ‘G3’ seminars across Japan throughout September and October 2007. Nearly 400 WorkNC users attended the seminars, keen to see how the integrated ergonomic interface and new fluid toolpaths in ‘G3’, the third generation of WorkNC automatic CAMCAD software, would transform their productivity.
WorkNC customers in attendance included representatives from a number of leading Japanese companies such as Fuji Heavy Industries, Miyazu Seisakusho, Nissan Motor Company, Ryobi and Toyota Motor Corporation.
Sescoi demonstrated the usability and productivity advantages of WorkNC G3’s new integrated user interface, which combines design, analysis, programming and verification into a single ergonomic environment.
The company also demonstrated a series of WorkNC G3’s toolpaths featuring new algorithms for roughing and finishing, as well as completely new routines for the 5-axis machining of impellers and blades, which have further increased the quality and capability of WorkNC’s machining. By enabling access to difficult to reach areas with short rigid tools through its unique Auto 5 capability, and by its generation of highly fluid cutterpaths, the software helps eliminate extra operations while at the same time achieving a superior surface finish.
The user seminars also included the participation of Sescoi partners; Hitachi Tool Engineering presented the use of its environmentally conscious cutting tools in a toolmaking environment, whilst MST Corporation illustrated how its ultra slim shrink fit tool holders would benefit moldmakers.
Sescoi Japan sales manager, Shinsuke Iimura concluded, “We were delighted with the response to our user seminar program. These seminars were an ideal platform to demonstrate the productivity improvements delivered by WorkNC G3 and to share information about valuable technology advances. The feedback gathered from WorkNC users will help drive future software developments and further enhance our customer service.”
