The TechniShow is hosted at the Jaarbeurs centre in Utrecht Netherlands.

TechniShow is the largest and the most important expo in Benelux that is concerned with industrial production technology, processing, treatment and metal tool and appliances. This event was run for a period four days and focused primarily on business and created an ideal platform to meet the entire industrial chain and establish new contacts and business leads. TechniShow was again held together with the ESEF show of manufacturing exhibitors and both these events provided a great opportunity for the production sector. This excellent event helped the exhibitors get acquainted with professional of the industry and it was reported that more than 40,000 visitors attended the event..

OneCNC Benelux with experienced application engineers were provided with a very busy platform to demonstrate the unique advantages of the OneCNC products.

Each of the 4 days were very busy demonstrating to new potential customers as well as product discussions with existing customers.

techni 3

OneCNC is very popular in Benelux and it was well noticed that OneCNC products were actively shown and used on machines in action at the show .

techni 5

One of the main reasons OneCNC is so popular in Benelux is that OneCNC has experienced application engineers that can assist both the machine tool application engineers as well as train and assist the customers using the products providing a complete support structure for the OneCNC customer.

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 R&D Having a Ball

  Feb 22 2016

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.

This graphic shows the machined ball being tested for accuracy


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.
