Mori Seiki's (Irving, TX) VEGA Milling Edition expands the capabilities of conversational software for its machining centers. VEGA reduces programming time and data entry errors by importing IGES and Parasolid CAD models created by in-house designers or customers. VEGA saves programming time by automatically extracting all machining features data with Auto Feature Recognition. Once the data has been imported, CAPS-VEGA analyzes it to determine the cutting planes and the best way to machine the part features, such as choosing between drilling and pocketing. The result is a fully populated feature tree representing all the operations needed to create the part. VEGA also allows users to easily combine features into patterns to take advantage of canned cycles, as well as quickly adjust the machining order by using the drag and drop capability of the feature tree. With VEGA, users can also program up to four axes by using the fourth axis indexing function.
