Vero Software recently hosted successful Alphacam and Cabinet Vision User Group Meetings at the North American divisional headquarters of parent company Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, in North Kingston, R.I.
The meetings, which took place Oct. 17 and 18, delivered in-depth overviews of new product features and enhancements, as well as a preview of upcoming developments.
Participants learned how to optimize the Alphacam user interface for an up to 30 percent reduction in programming time, and were given a real-time demonstration of how parts reverse engineered with Hexagon technology can be easily programmed using Vero Software.
“We scanned a part with a Hexagon portable ROMER scanning arm, generated a file populated with the associated geometry, and then imported the file into Alphacam,” said Perry Boyett, Alphacam sales and services director. “From there, we were able to program the part to demonstrate how Hexagon metrology equipment and Vero solutions quickly add up to greater efficiency on the shop floor.”
In addition to being educational forums, user-group meetings are an opportunity for customers to pose practical questions to Vero staff, as well as to interact with peers.
“These meetings are designed to directly benefit our customers by offering training at no charge on certain aspects of the software,” said Paul Corey, sales engineer for Vero Software. “At events like these, our users are given the opportunity to ask questions and receive answers that will immediately help them to be more productive.”
