Vero Software, a leading provider of CAD/CAM/CAE solutions for the tooling industry, are please to announce that VISI 19 will have its UK debut at the TCT/Interplas exhibition (Booth C57) to be held at the NEC, Birmingham, UK, from 27th to 29th September.
Vero will also be guest presenting at the Plastics Design Intelligence (PDI) seminar during Interplas on Tuesday 27 at 14.00 - PDI Theatre, Hall 4. The PDI presentation entitled "Plastic Product Design Principles" will highlight industry trends and focus on how considerate plastic part design can add value to the component with minimal impact on tooling costs, ensuring a balanced compromise between part complexity and manufacturability.

VISI 19 represents another substantial release with many new features in all areas of the product including core 3D CAM development and a continued focus on tool design and manufacture. VISI Modelling is the base platform for all products and enhancements include an updated GUI with improved user interaction, new blending capabilities, improved annotation, advanced profile offset and support for the increasingly prominent JT Open file format.

Major CAM developments include a 64Bit engine to boost performance and a number of new machining algorithms that will greatly benefit both Vero customers and OEM partners. New CAM routines include :
- HM Rib Cutting for the machining of very thin walls using a combined roughing and finishing strategy for each Z level.
- Deep Cavity Machining for automated splitting of roughing and finishing toolpaths into separate Z ranges based on collision checking between the piece and tool / holder, providing greater rigidity, reduced vibration & increase tool life.
- Core Roughing which generates an improved toolpath shape when working from outside a component. The result is a flowing toolpath that allows the machine to run near to its maximum potential when machining core components.
- HM Constant Z toolpath to complement the existing steep & shallow toolpath. This combined finishing routine replaces highly sophisticated 3D pocketing calculations with 2D projection calculations for shallow areas and can dramatically reduce calculation times.

VISI PEPS-Wire development has continued with new technology added and further migration of historic PEPS capabilities to the new VISI platform. These include slug retention, feature recognition for land and taper features, CT Expert integration, VDM file import and pocketing with finishing allowance, a new routine that allows the user to partially pocket an aperture by specifying the remaining stock left to cut. This dramatically improves wire usage by keeping fresh air cutting to a minimum.
