WorkNC 3X launch offers smaller companies a "fast track" to world class 3-axis machining.

Sescoi's automatic CAM/CAD software, WorkNC, is used by thousands of well-known manufacturers and toolrooms around the world to produce complex components quickly and efficiently. To help smaller companies benefit from the same technology, Sescoi is launching WorkNC 3X, a fast track solution to 2D and 3-axis machining, which is easy to use, technically advanced and very attractively priced.

As with all Sescoi products, the new software has been designed for rapid deployment. Users can start producing 3D parts on the spot, and will be operating at expert level, cutting complex parts and molds after 1 or 2 days' training.

WorkNC 3X equips engineers with a core range of the 2 and 3-axis automated tool paths previously only available in the full version of WorkNC. These include automatic 3-axis roughing and finishing, contour and pencil machining and automated drilling.

WorkNC 3X toolpaths have intelligence built in, generating smooth transitions and fluid cutterpaths suitable for high speed machining and cutting the most complex geometry . Furthermore, the system can learn from and store an individual company's machining methods, adding to its expertise and reducing reliance on human knowledge.

For toolmakers and manufacturers, this makes the software easy to use on the shop floor and introduces reliable and high quality machining methods quickly. Companies can significantly cut their production times and improve part quality without introducing unnecessary complexity.

To help companies collaborate seamlessly with their customers, WorkNC 3X includes a range of native import CAD translators, notably DWG/DXF, IGES, STEP, Parasolid, SolidWorks, and Pro/E. These enable model and drawing data to be easily imported, allowing smaller companies to compete for a wider range of business with confidence. Specialist application CAD capabilities inside WorkNC 3X allow users to manipulate designs ready for machining, speeding up and simplifying program preparation.

WorkNC 3X's toolpaths naturally offer the exceptional reliability upon which WorkNC has built its reputation and the solution features WorkNC's powerful collision detection and avoidance module as standard.

Over 20 years of R&D investment have gone into the development of the WorkNC algorithms, providing customers with accurate, safe and high quality results, first time. For smaller machinists and toolmakers, WorkNC 3X will provide a fast and cost effective way of transforming their machining capabilities, with rapid return on investment delivered by shorter deployment times, improved quality and simple operation.
