Sescoi, Inc. (Southfield, MI) is working on a host of new capabilities for WorkNC V18 CAM/CAD software, aimed at shortening leadtimes and improving quality. Manufacturers frequently work in hard materials. To make this easier, Sescoi has developed Adaptive Trochoidal Roughing. This strategy introduces a trochoidal movement in climb mode wherever a full width cut needs to be taken. WorkNC’s Plunge Roughing has also been enhanced for hard materials. It provides a fast, effective way of removing large amounts of material, especially in deep cavities. Sescoi has developed additional three-axis toolpaths. Spiral Core Roughing produces a continuous spiral toolpath at each Z-level. The advantage is a fluid trajectory for the tool and the minimum number of retracts. Sescoi has optimized WorkNC's Re-roughing toolpath to cut in climb mode and automatically check for toolholder collisions while updating the stock and toolpath. The Z-level machining capability of WorkNC also has been enhanced with optimized retractions. All these measures are targeted toward improving machining performance, security, quality and speed—vital for high-speed, hard metal machining. Sescoi’s revolutionary Auto5 machining also has seen improvements with new options for the automatic conversion of three-axis toolpaths to five-axis. Additionally, new routines have been added for five-axis Impeller Machining as well as a new departure into five-axis laser cutting.
