The Hexagon Production Software business will present manufacturing solutions EdgeCAM, Radan, SurfCAM, WorkNC and NCSimul, designed to increase efficiency while ensuring quality, at SOUTHTEC 2019.

EdgeCAM 2020.0 introduces a five-axis ‘tilt’ control strategy, combined with a ‘barrel cutter’.

The quick-nest mode in Radan 2020.0 provides a more visual interface, as well as limited upfront setup for projects and a redesigned new-project dialog that enables users to nest more quickly.

The latest version of SurfCAM provides increased productivity for both milling and turning users. The software offers a significant performance boost when either roughing or profiling a solid model. Users are able to utilize the machining engine to compute only the data constrained within a boundary, decreasing the cache size while generating faster toolpaths.

WorkNC 2020.0 expands its advanced toolform technology with the introduction of five-axis machining for any tool shape, including shapes such as barrels, ovals and parabolic, to be calculated over part surfaces, including negative offsets (allowances).

The NCSIMUL manufacturing simulation solution is designed to streamline shop-floor activities while increasing flexibility. Based on client-server scheduling architecture, the machining module includes automation functionality that provides wider control for jobs across various devices by communicating with distant servers.

A dedicated graphical user interface now allows tasks such as simulation, cut analysis and 3D movies to be performed on any device. This enables users to follow the status of jobs and receive notifications when they are complete. The system enables users to implement their own automation rules according to constraints and production priorities, and tasks are featured in a command file that can be easily customized to include user-specified parameters.
