Purchasing Technology Optimizes Ordering of Graphite Blanks Ohio Carbon Blank, a supplier of graphite for the mold- making industry, introduces its GraphimatorEZ web- based technology for automating graphite purchasing. The new technology is said to provide a streamlined approach for graphite procurement that eliminates errors and ensures faster deliveries. To improve graphite purchasing bottlenecks that result from incorrect data entry in the ordering of graphite blanks, Graphima- torEZ automates graphite purchasing and eliminates keyboard-entry-error risk. The three-step automation process includes extracting the CAD data from mold components as an Excel file, importing it into the por- gram for instant pricing and exporting pricing data for purchase order completion. | Ohio Carbon Blank Inc. | 440-953-9302 | Booth 637 Software Launches New CAD-for- CAM and Robot Programming The newly released version of WorkNC from Vero Soft- ware introduces new tools to the portfolio: a direct modeling CAD system and a Robot Module. The com- pany says this makes offline programming of robots easy, even for inexperienced users. WorkNC Designer is built on Parasolid technology, bringing hybrid modeling and direct modeling capabilities. It is not dependent on having a series of parameters that drive it or a feature tree. It provides a quick, dynamic editing and modeling environment in which users sketch, drag, hold, push or twist to create and modify models. The Robot Module frees tool paths from the limitations of milling, as the tool at the end of the robot's arm can also be a grinder, a laser head or a welding nozzle. | WorkNC by Vero Software | 248-351-9300 | Booth 414 Experience the BEST Customer Service and Product Availability in the industry! • For holes from 1.5 to 25.4 mm • Customs available • User friendly • Proudly Made in the USA Michigan Deburring tools work better, last longer and lower your cost per hole! 810-227-1000 Brighton, Michigan HIGH VOLUME HOLE DEBURRING Perfected in Michigan 1,, 1,, 1,, /"" AMERIMOLD MMS JUNE 2018 178
