IMTS 2014 - US Preview of VISI 21 At IMTS

North America’s largest manufacturing technology exhibition – IMTS, from September 8 to 13.

September 1, 2014 -- Major enhancements in the forthcoming new release of VISI, from Vero Software, will be on display for the first time in the US, at North America's largest manufacturing technology exhibition - IMTS, from September 8 to 13.


To be fully released at the end of October, VISI 21 includes completely new machining strategies for 2, 2.5 and 3-axis environments. In addition, a new toolpath simulation manages the ISO output, providing users with an enhanced and accurate virtual representation of the part, before committing it to the machine. The new release also introduces new "hybrid" milling strategies which will adapt different types of finishing toolpaths to match the component geometric form.

Updated CAD developments include new technology for managing multiple instances of the same geometry. For example, multi insert molds and dies can now be managed simply with a single reference part which will update all subsequent updates of the same geometry if the part is modified. The forthcoming release also includes enhanced kinematic simulation tools for previewing the real movement of tooling - ideal when validating the tool design and checking for collisions with slides, cams and lifters.

General Manager Richard Youhill says VISI's integration of CAD and CAM into a single application, provides best-in-class technology in one simple to use interface.

VISI's American reseller, TST - Tooling Software Technology - will be carrying out demonstrations at booth E-3114 at the McCormick Place complex in Chicago.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
