NCCS (Newport Beach, Calif.), the developer of the NCL multiaxis machining software for aerospace, automotive, and turbo machinery applications, has released the software's latest version, NCL 9.5, emphasizing substantial cycle time savings. Among the software's new capabilities are machining tactics that reduce machine cycle time by allowing the user to specify machining zones, with the option to machine to final depth within each zone; strategies that allow 5-axis rough machining of nonprismatic components, with the ability to access undercut and contoured areas; an interface that enables multiaxis contouring of a series of surfaces with a few clicks of the mouse; and automatic profiling of 3-D curves, with multiaxis tool control. nccs.gocomp.biz/2
