METAV in Düsseldorf has been the venue where technology providers can present to the trade world their metalworking, automation, production instrumentation, and software innovations to industry. 

This presentation of current developments becomes the stage for future investments. METAV provides a platform for metalworking subjects aligned to users, for the automotive and vehicle industries, machine and plant building, aerospace, medical engineering, power and environmental technologies, precision mechanics, optics, electrical and electronic engineering, to mention but a few. METAV 2016 reached a wide range of customers.

OneCNC Deutschland welcomed the opportunity to meet personally with so many existing customers due to being very popular  CAD/CAM in Germany.The show was very well attended by existing customers as well as many potential customers.

OneCNC was very busy throughout t the whole show demonstrating the unique advantages of the products to a large selection of manufacturers.. At times the halls were quite crowded with visitors to this popular exhibition so muc so it was difficult to find time to take a picture of the OneCNC stand..

OneCNC Deutschland with 3 application engineers on hand were kept very busy during the exhibition. If you were unable to have a personal demonstration of the OneCNC products please contact OneCNC Deutschland.

OneCNC Deutschland offers on-site training as well as on-line training and full support for all customers in Germany. If you did not have time to visit the fair and would like to evaluate the OneCNC product contact OneCNC Deutschland.

OneCNC R&D Having a Ball

OneCNC Research and Development has been having a real ball.

OneCNC Research and Development team over the past 2 years has continued development in 5 axis machining tool paths.
As part of this development many part examples have been created and machined by our engineers in the process.
This is part of the process used in testing and proving the practical results by actually machining components.
To prove the full development from model creation through to testing of the machined component it was chosen to create a spherical soccer ball for this test.
Rather than just CNC lathe turning a sphere and grooving it like a soccer ball it was decided to create the ball using a CNC machining centre.
This required modelling a hexagonal and polygon piece to be used to form the ball.
The segments were then assembled by rotation and copying around an axis to completely form the ball.
This was to test the original model segments and then test the rotation and copying of the components of the ball.
The required CNC tool paths were then created for the machining process in the 5 axis machining centre.

This graphic shows the completed model of segment pieces formed to create the soccer ball model.


This graphic shows the segments of hexagonal and polygon pieces being rotated and assembled around a common axis to form the soccer ball model.


The soccer ball was then CNC programmed in OneCNC to create roughing, semi-finishing and finishing tool paths
The completed toolpaths were electronically transferred to the machining centre for machining from a piece of solid aluminium bar stock.

Here we show the solid bar stock being machined in a 5 axis simultaneous Hermle Machining Centre.


After the machining was completed the finished ball was transferred to our Brown and Sharpe coordinate measuring machine for accuracy validation.
The completed ball was measured and found to be within the '004 mm machining tolerance as set in OneCNC when creating the CNC tool paths.

To enable our test and validation to be kept as proof of accuracy and evidence of our research and development we mounted the ball on a stand for keeping in our technical centre in Brisbane.

This graphic shows the completed ball anodised and mounted on a stand.


OneCNC filmed the process of creating the soccer ball and the machining process to create the final part as shown in this video.

OneCNC Italia at Samumetal Exhibition

SamuMetal was held in Pordenone Fiere, 3rd to 6th February 2016, with a new look and even more interesting; the 18th exhibition of tools and technology for metalworking was held held simultaneously with SubTech, 12th metalworking subcontracting exhibition, and SamuPlast, 12th exhibition of plastics, technology and machinery.

In 2014, SamuMetal attracted the attention of visitors and exhibitors, both national and international: the numbers of exhibitors and the exhibition area have increased compared to 2012, reaching respectively 500 exhibitors, and 23.000 sqm surface. The number of visitors has increased compared to 2012 with over 10,000 attendees.

Some portions of the Samumetal Exhibition weere captured on video as shown in this video.

It was a good opportunity for OneCNC Italy to demonstrate the latest features to new potential customers as well as existing customers looking to upgrade their OneCNC to the latest version.

If you missed the opportunity for a OneCNC product demonstration to see the unique advantages you can contact OneCNC Italy for a personalized demonstration on-line or at your shop.
