Vero will demonstrate features of its Edgecam CAD/CAM software for CNC programming, including the Waveform roughing strategy, a high-speed machining cycle that is available for milling and turning. This feature is said to deliver consistent tool engagement with the material, thereby maintaining constant tool-cutting load. By generating a smooth tool path to avoid sharp changes in direction, the roughing strategy maintains machine-tool velocity while decreasing cycle time and increasing tool life, the company says.

Edgecam also offers extended collision detection and improved NC output for machining holes. Working in unison with the Update Fixture command, the Hole Cycle avoids collisions with fixtures by using clearance and retract-values parameters.
