VISI CAD/CAM, by Vero Software, at FABTECH 2017, Nov. 6-9, Chicago, Illinois

The time-saving features and upgrades available in the latest edition of VISI CAD/CAM, by Vero Software, will be featured Nov. 6-9 at FABTECH 2017, presented at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.

FABTECH provides a convenient venue for interacting with world-class suppliers, seeing the latest industry products and developments, and finding the tools to improve productivity, increase profits and discover new solutions for metal forming, fabricating, welding, and finishing needs. The annual event will offer more than 1,300 exhibitors and 28,000 attendees full access to over 550,000 net square feet of floor space.

Visitors to FABTECH can learn more about VISI at booth No. C41830, where VISI North American Master Distributor TST Tooling Software Technology will provide demonstrations of the solution’s latest upgrades and new features. TSTracker, new job-tracking software developed by TST specifically for the mold and die industry, will also be featured at the event.

Among several items of new and enhanced functionality for both CAD and CAM processes available in the VISI 2017 R2 is the new 2.5-Axis Pocketing Strategy, which improves toolpath quality, optimizes toolpath on open features, and allows machining from a stock model. When the stock model is defined, the new Pocketing Strategy can identify the areas where it’s necessary to remove the material and adapt the toolpath to produce passes only when they’re needed.


With this latest release, high speed machining can now be achieved with the new 2.5-Axis Waveform Strategy (previously available in 3D roughing), which maintains constant tool cutting load, constant cutting feed rate, and a smooth toolpath which avoids sharp changes in direction.

Based on the Pocketing technology, VISI’s new Re-machining Strategy inherits the same enhancements and advantages. Rest area recognition is achieved automatically, based on the reference operations. A new residual stock algorithm is used for both 2D and 3D operations and the Dynamic Incremental Stock command. This ensures consistent toolpath quality regardless of the operation type.
