Ian Llewellyn and Tony Bowkett describe the Productivity Partnership between Vero Software and Nikken Kosakusho. The video shows 5-axis machining of an impeller using the Nikken 5AX-350 table on a Bridgeport machine, programmed by VISI CAD/CAM and using the Cycle Def 128 (TCPM - Tool Centre Point Management) function of the Heidenhain iTNC530 controller.
VISI is acknowledged as one of the world's leading PC based CAD CAM software solutions for the Mould & Die industries. It offers a unique combination of applications, fully integrated wireframe, surface and solid modelling, comprehensive 2D, 3D and 5-axis machining strategies with dedicated high speed routines.
5-Axis Pioneers Thrive With VISI - One of the early adopters to introduce simultaneous 5-axis machining into its region, chose the VISI integrated CAD/CAM system from Vero Software, to drive its CNC machine tools.
