OneCNC is the perfect choice
Machinery Solutions Pty Ltd is a specialist designer and manufacturer of machine components based in Brisbane, Australia. This forward thinking company has advanced their manufacturing capabilities to keep up with the challenges facing Australian manufacturers.
Managing director Grant Richards has made the bold move to 5 axis machining. "This decision was made for us not by us" , our industry is moving at breakneck speed and we need to be in step or one step ahead."
“After looking at what machinery was needed,
we settled with the Deckel Maho. The DMU 50 fitted
the bill. the latest Heidenhain control was a
great plus. We found that OneCNC was the only
CAD/CAM package that could offer complete 5 axis
solids based design compatibility with the latest
Heidenhain CNC machine control.
This now gives us the ability for high speed
production and precision machining for 3, 4 and
5 axis parts by CNC machining centers as well
as CNC machining by Lathe. We also have OneCNCXR2
Professional Lathe CAD/CAM.
We had to be absolutely sure we had the right
tools to attack Queensland's ever increasing Aerospace
market. The last piece of the puzzle was CAD/CAM
software "OneCNC Mill Expert was the only
software package to do what we needed and it was
another decision that was made for us. We had
used OneCNC for six years, but the OneCNC Expert
with the 5 axis had the competition beat."
We know of users of
other software that they only use CAD/CAM
when absolutely necessary because their
systems are hard to use. We know different
because we found that the OneCNC with
all the machining strategies bi-directional
file translation along built in Heidenhain
canned cycles and native Heidenhain code
for for the control provides the ease for
3, 4 or 5 axis programming means that all
our programming is easily and safely done
"The only buttons we now use on the
Heidenhain controls are on and off, OneCNC allows the
machines to run whilst we program the next
job, that's important to us as we are a
small batch shop."
"It's a great package" and the perfect choice added
Grant "A fast modern machine software package that does
exactly what I want. We have now machined parts for the medical,aerospace and automotive industries, on time to
drawing and customers are coming back."
