Sescoi and Ingersoll seminar shows machining from start to finish

January 27, 2012 -  Sescoi and Ingersoll Werkzeuge GmbH held a joint seminar at Ingersoll’s offices in Germany to demonstrate the complete production cycle including quotation preparation, CAD analysis, Wire EDM, CAM, CNC machining, and electrode creation.

By demonstrating WorkPLAN ERP, WorkXPlore 3D viewer, WorkNC Wire EDM, WorkNC V21 CAM, WorkNC Electrode and WorkNC-CAD Sescoi was able to show how all its software modules fit together to provide a comprehensive production solution.

Starting with a quotation created in WorkPLAN, delegates could see how the software uses historic information to give an accurate cost. Once the order has been received all the information is transferred into a works order and tracked and monitored through the workshop right through to dispatch and invoicing, minimizing administrative effort and the possibility of human error.

With WorkXPlore 3D, Sescoi showed how the CAD model could be interrogated to check for potential problems and for necessary manufacturing information. Additionally, it showed how this data could be shared around an organization and its supply chain. By facilitating involvement of more people, WorkXPlore 3D speeds up the manufacturing process by making concurrent working easy.

For the machining demonstration, the blank had been pre-prepared using Sescoi’s WorkNC Wire EDM software, enabling it to be cut to the optimum shape and also providing a stock model ready for the machining phase. Delegates watched the preparation of the CNC program on WorkNC V21 which included several 5-axis simultaneous toolpaths. The complexity of the cutterpath highlighted WorkNC’s exceptional calculation speed which is around 10 times faster than the previous version, thanks to parallel processing.
The live machining demonstrations were carried out on a Hermle C42U machine using Ingersoll tooling. These showed the speed, reliability and fluidity of the toolpaths generated in WorkNC, which enabled the machine and tooling to operate at maximum efficiency.

To conclude the day, electrodes were created for a very intricate area of the job where machining was impossible. Sescoi showed how the electrode data could be extracted directly from the model geometry and manipulated in the WorkNC-CAD hybrid modeler, WorkNC Electrode and WorkNC to produce the finished electrode.

WorkNC is widely used in Germany, particularly within the automotive sector, where companies such as BMW, Volkswagen, Audi and Mercedes Benz are customers. By working in partnership with Ingersoll Sescoi has been able to clearly demonstrate the importance of high quality toolpaths for fast, reliable and automatic machining and how its supporting software can control production, produce rapid and accurate quotations, and control operations such as wire EDM and die sinking to provide a complete productivity package.
