June 9, 2009 - Visitors to FIP 2009, the premier French plastics event, to be held in Lyon from 16th to 19th June, will get a preview of Sescoi’s new standalone WorkNC Wire EDM software on the CRCI Burgundy stand (G4). The system uses the latest WorkNC CAD solid and surface hybrid modeler, which will enable engineers to program 2 and 4-axis shapes with confidence and ease.
Already well known for WorkNC CAM/CAD software for the automatic machining of parts up to full 5-axis, Sescoi’s new WorkNC Wire EDM software incorporates the company’s 21 years of experience within the molding, tooling, prototyping and general mechanical fields. Dialog boxes guide the user through the system, in keeping with Sescoi’s policy of offering software which is both automated and easy to use. Powerful functions within WorkNC Wire EDM allow for the extraction of cross sections, ready for 2 or 4-axis cutting. Alternatively the 3D surfaces of the CAD model can be used directly. Full reliability is assured through the graphical verification included in the software. This automatically checks for collisions and the maximum wire angle possible on each individual EDM machine. Naturally, post processors for all leading machines will be available.
Sescoi’s premier CAM/CAD software WorkNC V20 will also be demonstrated on the Sescoi booth, with live machining also taking place on the Charly Robot booth of a reduced scale helicopter in soft material on a CharlyPRO CPR machine.
Automated global roughing and finishing toolpaths have been optimized in the latest version of WorkNC to suit the high speed 5-axis machining of hard materials. Collaboration with CETIM (The French Industrial and Mechanical Technical Center), tooling, and machine tool manufacturers, and companies within the moldmaking and medical industries has played a significant role in this process. WorkNC’s capability to machine medical and dental devices (WorkNC Dental) benefited greatly from the techniques learnt during this partnership.
Custom manufacturers can reduce costs dramatically by improving their efficiency and cutting out non value adding work. Those interested in seeing how software can help them do this, should ask for a demo of Sescoi’s WorkPLAN Enterprise ERP or MyWorkPLAN job management systems. Designed for project based companies, the systems make it easy and quick to produce accurate quotations from historic data and the analysis of design information. Production, resources and purchasing are all controlled and key performance indicators tracked and monitored in real time. By using these systems, managers will be able to satisfy customers with competitive pricing, on-time delivery and continuous high quality while maximizing profitability.
WorkXPlore 3D promotes productive, collaborative working throughout an organization and its supply chain by reading in and amalgamating CAD data from multiple sources and systems. The software’s high speed operation handles large files with ease, allowing users to rapidly share, analyze, and mark-up designs. By having more people concurrently involved in the development process, products can be optimized for cost, reliability, esthetics and function in a fraction of the time it would normally take. The superior products produced will get to market quicker and at lower cost, significantly adding to profit levels.
Sescoi has a broad range of productivity solutions that integrate high technology with ease of use and automation. The latest addition to the Sescoi range, the WorkNC Wire EDM system, bring companies a simple way of programming 2 and 4 axis wire paths. The integrated advanced technology ensures reliability and precision, combined with high quality surface finishes, all essential for customer satisfaction and maximum return on investment.
