February 7, 2012 - At
Metav 2012 in Düsseldorf, Germany,
Sescoi (Hall 13, Booth D59) will be demonstrating how its suite of productivity software can be used throughout the entire process chain.
Many manufacturing companies would prefer to use software from a single supplier to manage their processes from receipt of a request for quotation through to delivery and invoicing of the order. Sescoi showed how this is possible, without the need to invest in expensive software systems, at a recent seminar held with partner Ingersoll Tools in Germany. At Metav 2012, Sescoi aims to demonstrate again how its software solutions can improve the entire process chain, from the first customer contact, to CAD analysis, CAM programming for EDM, CNC machining, order delivery and invoicing. Its engineers and consultants will also show the latest developments in its WorkPLAN ERP, WorkXPlore 3D Viewer, WorkNC Wire EDM, WorkNC V21 CADCAM, WorkNC Electrode and WorkNC-CAD Hybrid Modeling, complementary suite of software systems.
WorkPLAN is used at the start of the process chain. This custom manufacturing ERP software shortens lead times and guarantees process reliability. The user enters the customer’s request for quotation data and generates a realistic cost estimate with the help of a knowledgebase. Once the customer’s order is received, the software creates a project folder that collates all information and tracks the order from creation through to invoicing, reducing administrative work and eliminating the risk of errors.
The WorkXPlore 3D viewer enables the user to examine the part to be produced in order to detect and avoid potential problem areas and to gather relevant data and dimensions in preparation for production. WorkXPlore 3D also enables a CAD model to be shared among all those people involved in a project, within the company or supply chain, facilitating communication and enabling users to work concurrently.
WorkNC Wire EDM is used for blank preparation. With minimal data entry, this software is able to generate 4-axis wire cutting paths from CAD data, making it possible to create a blank with optimized contours.
Sescoi’s flagship software is WorkNC CADCAM, the latest version of which is V21. Enabling multi-threading and parallel processing, toolpath calculation times are now up to ten times faster in this new version, which also includes new features and strategies for simultaneous 5-axis machining.
Many parts feature structures and shapes which cannot be machined, and which need to be produced by erosion. Sescoi has software for this too. The interaction of WorkNC-CAD, WorkNC Electrode and WorkNC enables direct extraction of the required electrode shapes from the model geometry, which can then be milled. WorkNC is widely used in Germany, particularly within the automotive sector, where companies such as BMW, Volkswagen, Audi and Mercedes Benz are customers. WorkNC is particularly appreciated for its fast, high-quality and reliable toolpaths.
When they visit the Sescoi booth at Metav 2012 (Hall 13, booth D59), engineers and managers will be able to see how automated and integrated software can have a positive impact on process productivity and efficiency.
