Vero Software will demonstrate WorkNC 2017 R1, which features a new parallel finishing tool path that the company says has achieved cycle-time reductions of as much as 80 percent. Based on Vero’s new Advanced Toolform technology, parallel finishing toolpath calculations take into account the physical geometry of cutting tools, including high-feed, standard and convex tooling.

Among other updates in this version of the CAM software is a dynamic calculation queueing function, which is said to deliver significant time savings by enabling users to accomplish more tasks within a shorter time frame. Operators can generate multiple tool paths, run postprocessors and check for eventual toolholder collisions without waiting for calculations to finish.
