Vero’s high-end injection molding simulation software has been fully integrated with surface and solid modeling tools; comprehensive two- to five-axis machining strategies with high speed routines; two- and four-axis EDM; and a mold design package. Visi Flow 17 injection molding simulation software uses a custom hexahedral hybrid mesh technology to quickly provide accurate results, the company says.
Exploring Niches With New EDM Technologies
A shop specializing in wire EDM for large mold components now offers EDM “turning” of small, intricate parts. Despite the potential risks involved in early adoption of new technologies, the shop believes this practice gives it a leg-up on the competition and lets it gain experience with alternative machining techniques before offering them to customers.
Updated CAD/CAM Software Packages
The company features updated software packages, including the VISI Rel. 16 and PEPS Rel 7. VISI 16 includes an updated user interface and enhancements to the CAD for electrode design, surface creation, annotation and product documentation for concurrent design. VISI Mold includes improved cooling circuit design; a
