New Sescoi productivity solutions make their Japanese debut at JIMTOF
JIMTOF 2008, taking place in Tokyo from 30th October to 4th November, will be the launch pad for the Japanese version of Sescoi’s WorkPLAN Enterprise manufacturing management system. Located on stand W0014, Sescoi will also demonstrate the latest developments in the WorkNC automatic CAM/CAD system for 2 to 5-axis machining and present WorkNC 3X, the company’s new entry-level CAM/CAD package comprising core 3-axis roughing & finishing toolpaths and 2D machining capability.
WorkNC, which is the most popular CAM system in Japan for die and moldmakers according to The Nikkan Kogyo Newspaper, provides machining from 2D right up to full 5-axis with its Auto 5 automatic 5-axis programming, as well as dedicated toolpaths for blades and impellers. Sescoi will demonstrate WorkNC’s new smoothing algorithms and even more accurate rest modeling and re-machining capabilities that favor climb milling. These routines make high speed machining with small diameter cutters easy by keeping tool loads both constant and as low as possible.
Visitors to the stand will be able to see sample parts produced with the latest version of WorkNC, together with the associated machining videos, created in collaboration with OSG Corporation and Tomco Co., Ltd. respectively.
Aimed at companies in project or engineer-to-order manufacturing, such as mold, die and toolmakers, WorkPLAN Enterprise is making its Japanese debut at JIMTOF2008. Sescoi consultants will illustrate how the system helps companies to manage their complete manufacturing process, starting with quotations and order management through to production control, purchasing, quality compliance and delivery. With a common, easy to use interface for all its modules, the system controls costs, keeps track of key performance indicators and provides greater visibility across the whole organization, enabling companies to optimize profits and raise productivity levels.
With the upcoming product launches and further new products in the pipeline, Sescoi Japan is able to offer Japanese companies the most complete suite of productivity software on the market, making a visit to their Jimtoff booth (W0014) highly worthwhile.
