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, programd by VISI CAD/CAM and using the Cycle Def 128 (TCPM - Tool Center 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 Mold & 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.
A long-established Bavarian tool-maker says two things are essential for its success: it reinvents itself regularly, and industry focussed technology such as VISI CAD/CAM software for sheet metal tool design and programming their 4 and 5-axis CNC machines.
