Vero Releases VISI 19
UK, May 24, 2011 – Vero Software, a leading provider of CAD/CAM/CAE solutions for the tooling
industry, are please to announce the imminent release of its flagship product
VISI 19. Due for a Summer release, VISI 19 represents another substantial
release with many new features in all areas of the product including core 3D CAM
development and a continued focus on tool design and manufacture.
VISI Flow highlights potential molding issues
VISI Modeling is the base platform for all products and enhancements include
an updated GUI with improved user interaction, new blending capabilities,
improved annotation, advanced profile offset, graphical texture mapping and
support for the increasingly prominent JT Open file format.
New toolpath algorithms and 64Bit engine provide CAM boost for VISI Machining
VISI Mould enhancements include an a new Assembly Tool Manager to handle
multi-level tool structures, and provide the ability to generate specific tree
hierarchy structures for the creation of partial BOM lists. VISI Flow
development include a new part quality tool with potential remedy suggestions
for each problem area and improved filling analyses and flow balancing due to
the fine tuning of melt compressibility at end of the filling phase.
3D curvature map for Deep Cavity machining
For sheet metal stamping, VISI Progress enhancements include three new
dedicated routines to manage complex springback based on results from CMM
machines, 3rd party FEA systems and bend section geometry. Each routine includes
skimming capabilities to reduce point clutter and allows the operator to define
an additional percentage to over compensate for the springback deformation.
VISI 19 represents a release where significant resource was allocated to
major CAM development. A number of new machining algorithms have been introduced
that will greatly benefit both Vero customers and OEM partners. New CAM routines
include 'HM Rib Cutting' for the machining of very thin walls, 'Deep Cavity
Machining' for the automated splitting of roughing and finishing toolpaths into
separate Z ranges based on collision checking between the piece and tool /
holder, providing greater rigidity, reduced vibration & increase tool life.
A new 'Core Roughing' strategy has been developed which generates an improved
toolpath shape when working from outside a component. The result is a flowing
toolpath that allows the machine to run near to its maximum potential when
machining core components. A new 'HM Constant Z' toolpath has been introduced to
complement the existing steep & shallow toolpath. This combined finishing
routine replaces highly sophisticated 3D pocketing calculations with 2D
projection calculations for shallow areas and can dramatically reduce
calculation times. Finally a 64Bit engine will boost performance and allow users
to benefit from maximum RAM usage.
VISI PEPS-Wire development has continued with new technology added and
further migration of historic PEPS capabilities to the new VISI platform. These
include slug retention, feature recognition for land and taper features, CT
Expert integration, VDM file import and pocketing with finishing allowance, a
new routine that allows the user to partially pocket an aperture by specifying
the remaining stock left to cut. This dramatically improves wire usage by
keeping fresh air cutting to a minimum.
Headquartered in England, Vero Software designs, develops, and supplies
