Vero Software enjoyed a strong showing at AWFS Fair 2017, where the company drew visitors from 11 countries and demonstrated its CNC woodworking solutions in the booths of 30 machinery partners.
Hosted recently in Las Vegas, Nevada, AWFS 2017 marked the introduction of Vero’s new WorkPLAN family of manufacturing solutions. Also exhibited were the latest editions of the company’s Alphacam and Cabinet Vision solutions, as well as the Leica Disto S910, a laser distance-measuring tool by Leica Geosystems that will soon be linked with Cabinet Vision.
Leica Geosystems and Vero Software are subsidiaries of Hexagon AB, which has facilitated the development of seamless integration between products produced by the two companies. The direct link between the Leica S910 and Cabinet Vision will allow customers to use the Leica S910 to take room measurements that will be automatically imported into Cabinet Vision. Following import, Cabinet Vision will generate room layouts based on the data.
Also featured in the Vero booth was a ROMER arm manufactured by Vero parent company Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence. Performed by Hexagon staff, demonstrations of the arm and its interoperability with Vero solutions included the reverse engineering of a detailed wooden part. STL files generated from the scans were imported into Alphacam, which then generated accurate toolpath for manufacturing.
AWFS also proved an ideal location for Vero to present a fund-raising check to the Woodwork Career Alliance (WCA), an organization that benefits woodworking education. Vero collected $751 during a t-shirt fundraiser in support of the WCA.
WorkPLAN is a fully-scalable family of manufacturing software solutions, from project management to ERP, which enables custom manufacturers, project-based and make-to-order companies to automate and manage processes such as job costing, quotations, sales order processing, planning, quality, time, purchasing, and stock management.
Alphacam is a leading CAM solution for wood, stone, composites and metal components from 2-axis through 5-axis NC programming applications. The emphasis behind the development of Alphacam is to provide our customers with productivity, reliability and flexibility.
Cabinet Vision is the most widely used design-for-manufacturing software capable of custom cabinet and room design, photo realistic renderings, material optimization, bidding and costing, and cutlists and bill of materials. Combined with the powerful Cabinet Vision Screen-to-Machine™ (S2M) Center, it can automatically create machine-ready G-Code for CNC flat table routers, point-to-point machines, panel saws, drill and dowel machines, chop saws and other specialized CNC machinery.
