Missler Software (Evry, France) offers GOelan 2006, which has been designed to make high quality CAD/CAM software accessible to all CNC operators. GOelan 2006 clearly answers the following important questions: How to reduce the time needed to generate CNC programs and how to reduce machining times and optimize the use of machine tools. The three main new features of GOelan 2006 are operations lists manager (OLM), multiple part machining (MPM) and enhanced CAD interoperability. OLM offers the possibility to reduce the toolpath generation process to only one step: selection of the geometry. The benefits of OLM include substantial time cuts for generating CNC programs; the ability to capture the machining know how of the workshop; and, make new operators share the same cutting techniques as experienced operators. The simplified user interface used in the MPM can be easily used by any CNC operator in the workshop near the machine tool. The MPM environment allows parts to be placed onto the tombstone fixtures just like with a CAD assembly. The benefits of MPM include more efficient night shift planning and generation of correct complex machining settings in the workshop. It is now possible to scan the CAD data and extract the technological information necessary for the appropriate hole features machining The benefits of enhanced CAD interoperability include transfer design intent from the Designer to the Machinist with solid geometry files; solid CAD file transfer from most CAD software solutions; and automation of machining of holes.
