Sescoi will be unveiling its WorkNC parallel features (multi-threading and multi processing) for the first time at EuroMold, Frankfurt next week.
WorkNC’s parallel computing capabilities enable it to take advantage of the speed of the latest multi-processor computers by splitting computational tasks between processors, reducing memory requirements and increasing the speed of calculation. WorkNC users have long had the ability to program the next part while calculating the previous one, and can set-up a queue of jobs to be calculated out of normal working hours. The new parallel algorithms will extend and further improve these capabilities, bringing an optimized toolpath to the machine tool in a fraction of the previous time.
WorkNC Auto 5 has been extended with the Auto 3+2 module, designed to meet the demands of 3+2 axis machining. Engineers on the Sescoi booth will be demonstrating WorkNC Auto 3+2’s programming. WorkNC’s Auto 3+2 module brings the power of automatic multi-axis programming to older and larger machines.
WorkNC V20, which is compatible with MS Windows 7, will also be demonstrated at the Sescoi booth. Highlights of this latest version include Z-level finishing combined with optimization in a single strategy, and new 3-axis undercut re-machining.
Visitors to the show from the dental and medical industries can also see a demonstration of WorkNC Dental with live machining of dental prostheses on a Witech MIC5 machine.
