WIXOM, MI: July 7th, 2008 – Vero USA, a leading provider of CAD/CAM/CAE solutions for the tooling industry, will exhibit its updated software packages at booth D-3064 at the IMTS Exhibition (Chicago, IL - September 8-13th, 2008).
Vero offers a combination of applications including fully integrated surface and solid modeling, comprehensive 2 to 5 axis machining strategies with high speed routines, 2- and 4-axis EDM, and dedicated tools for plastic injection molds and progressive dies. At IMTS Vero will present the new
VISI Rel. 16 and
PEPS Rel 7.
· VISI 16 will include an updated user interface and enhancements to the CAD for electrode design, surface creation, annotation and product documentation for concurrent design. VISI Mold includes improved cooling circuit design; assembly explode management and an even tighter integration with VISI Flow. This unique feature enables mold and component designers to base their design principles using the integrated flow analysis to detect potential manufacturing issues before committing to the tool manufacturing process and saving value time and costs – such as welding lines, air traps, best gate location, etc, providing the maximum time frame for a corrective solution - This is only made possible through an integrated CAD/CAM/CAE analysis.
VISI Progress, for 3D progressive die design sees some major enhancements to the unfolding of non linear edges, bending management outside of the parametric tree, blanking with constraint edge mapping, strip enhancements and a new feature manager.
VISI Machining will see significant improvements in the realms of automated machining using automatic feature recognition techniques directed towards automatic plate machining. New ‘compass’ technology will allow the user to define a number of rules that will uniquely link specific geometry with a sequence of predefined operations/parameters. This will allow a company to implement adaptable toolpath strategies and proven cutting parameters to any geometric model. Other improvements include high speed milling techniques within 2D toolpaths, improved drilling cycles, enhanced 3+2 management, an updated 3D toolpath engine and a new tooling library.
· PEPS 7 will see major additions in PEPS Wire (Rotary Axis support, Enhanced Wireframe Simulation, Multiple workpieces, Support for twin wire machines, Direct editing of the cutting setup pages), PEPS Pentacut/Tubecut (Simplified User Interface, Optimized rapid moves, Body to body transform) and PEPS 2D Laser (Add OpenGL Support, Enhanced simulation).
