Bronte invest in new CAD CAM software

In the last month, Bronte Precision has continued with its commitment to invest in its capabilities by upgrading to OneCNC CAD CAM (computer-aided design & computer-aided manufacturing) software.

The addition of OneCNC to Bronte’s portfolio of systems means that machining programmes for complex components can be created accurately and transferred to company CNC machines quicker than ever.

Through the upload of 2D or 3D CAD drawings supplied to us, we can use the software to run a number of simulations on a 3D model of the component before proceeding with live machining.

These simulations can be used to:

  • Determine the best tools for the job
  • Calculate the optimum toolpath in order to extend the lifetime of the tooling
  • Estimate the time it will take to run a particular cutting sequence or machine a component complete from a blank piece of material.

The new investment will be utilised by Bronte alongside its current systems to further streamline its machining processes. This will be achieved by speeding up the programming of complex operations, reducing cycle times and limiting potential errors.

Bronte Precision currently has 8 CNC lathes (Max capacity: 3000mm long x 805 dia) and 10 CNC milling machines (Max capacity: 2.5m x 1.5m x 1.2m) on site at its Bradford facility.
