January 19, 2015 -- The 2015 releases of Vero Software’s game-changing CAD/CAM brands Alphacam, Edgecam and Radan will feature at the UK’s forthcoming Southern Manufacturing Exhibition.
A comprehensive trade show for highlighting advanced engineering, manufacturing solutions and innovation, it is the ideal forum to showcase how Vero Software improves productivity, flexibility and profitability for manufacturers.
Alphacam, Edgecam and Radan will be demonstrated on stand T80 at the show, held at FIVE, in Farnborough, UK, between February 10 and 12.
Alphacam 2015 R1
With Alphacam 2015 R1, companies attending the exhibition will see the benefits of a number of new and improved features. The release introduces a new ribbon bar interface, enabling users to quickly find the commands they need, as they are arranged in logical groups, assembled together under tabs. The Quick Access Toolbar is displayed above the ribbon bars and includes the most commonly used commands, such as Open and Save. Users can customise the bar by adding their own favourites.
Significant updates to the Project Manager give it a more contemporary look, including specific icons for each Operation type. And the new look File menu now includes a Recent Files page listing Alphacam and CAD parts files, displaying a preview image and their properties.
A new Advanced 5-axis machining module includes a comprehensive set of strategies with advanced tool axis control and intelligent collision avoidance, to quickly and accurately machine surface and solid models. Finally, the ability to import files from Google Sketchup adds to the extensive list of third-party file formats which Alphacam supports.
Edgecam 2015 R1
The swift evolution of Edgecam Workflow is highlighted with over 50 new and enhanced aspects of functionality in the latest release.
Waveform turning, multiple machining sequence support, ribbon bar and interface updates, and the inclusion of Wire EDM mean that Edgecam 2015 R1, from Vero Software, continues to be a game changer in ensuring UK manufacturers can compete in a global economy.
The latest Radan release includes enhanced functionality to ensure imported 3D files retain accurate information, resolving manufacturing issues throughout the production process, including at the press brake.
A number of the 180 enhancements in Radan 2015 help bring all aspects of the software together – CAD/CAM, Radbend, Radm-ax, Radtube and the logistics products. “When people think of Radan they think of the world’s most powerful sheetmetal CAD/CAM software,” says Product Manager Olaf Körner. “But Radan is actually a whole suite of connected products. For example, there is a major connection between 3D in CAD/CAM and the Radbend press brake software. When manufacturers unfold a model they need to know how the bend process will be affected further down the production line.”
Vero has direct offices in the UK, Germany, Italy, France, Japan, USA, Brazil, Netherlands, China, South Korea, Spain and India supplying products to more than 45 countries through its wholly owned subsidiaries and reseller network.
Vero is part of Hexagon (Nordic exchange: HEXA B), a leading global provider of design, measurement and visualisation technologies that enable customers to design, measure and position objects, and process and present data.
