OneCNC Benelux celebrates its 8 year anniversary

OneCNC Benelux celebrates its 8 year anniversary.

OneCNC opened its Benelux sales office in February 2007. In that time, sales in the Benelux have improved, year on year, and we would like to  share the success stories of two companies who have grown with us.

 Imminkhuizen Metaaltechniek opened for business in 2008, and invested fairly early on in a mill package from OneCNC, Mill Express.

Over time this has been upgraded a few times to where they are now, running multiple seats of OneCNC for multiple CNC machines.

Warnier Precisiemetaal began with OneCNC in 2009 with a network licence of Mill Expert, with 5 axis positioning. This enabled them to program all of their milling machines.  More recently came upgrades to full functionality (including 5 axis simultaneous) for both Milling and Turning.


Warnier has invested in workstations in the workshop, next to the machines, and this, in combination with their network licence from OneCNC is seen as a major factor in their successful operation and flexibility – no-one has to queue for the tools to get the job done.


Recently having moved to a new purpose-built facility, and having invested further in their machinepark, OneCNC is regularly in use on up to 10 computers simultaneously.

Make Me a Knight

  Mar 27 2015

Make me a Knight with OneCNC

Computer modelling has advanced to a high level using free form Nurb surfaces to create complex models.

After design often these parts then have to be manufactured.

This advance in modelling has required CAD/CAM development to keep pace with the complexity of machining parts that are modelled by this method..

At OneCNC as part of our ongoing product development we often choose what can appear to be simple parts but contain portions or features that can produce complexities in CNC manufacture.

A Chess Piece Knight was chosen as an example in this instance because it was small and shows the detail required to machine the undercut areas of the model both in the roughing and finishing of the part..

While testing our OneCNC Expert 5 Axis Simultaneous functionality to produce a part like this Knight Chess Piece we made a video of the machining to show our progress.

This video shows the results and the machine action action and movements required to machine this part of this type..

OneCNC has the facilities and the technical ability to conduct this type of development.

OneCNC employs the latest CNC 5 axis simultaneous machining technology including the latest Laser measurement and tool setting.

This helps to ensure that OneCNC has the capabilities of the latest machine technologies.

OneCNCXR6 Swarf Machining

  Mar 10 2015

OneCNC 5 axis "Swarf" machining in OneCNCXR6.

Swarf Milling is a type of Surface Milling or machining which lets the user machine a singular or series of surfaces by cutting with the side of the tool.

Swarf Milling produces a slice style tool path, with the slice shape corresponding to the 5-axis suitable surface being machined.

The tool is positioned tangent to the surface being machined and the suitable surface is straight rather than bulged.

OneCNC on selection of the Swarf function indicates by way of colouring each surface that can not be Swarf machined on the current screen part.

Parts that have bulge or do not have tangent to the tool ability are shown as black surfaces, all other surfaces not coloured can be Swarf machined.

Swarf Milling supports end mill tools, as well as tapered end mills and ball mills.

This video shows some of the OneCNCXR6 capabilities of the Swarf machining machining the tapered walls and chamfered edges of a cell plate.

You will note that the tapered walls are finished in one pass of the cutter and the chamfered edges are also finish machined in one pass.

The outer edge is undercut and also Swarf machined.

This Swarf method of machining saves considerable machine time using the flank of the tool instead of needing to use a ball mill in many Z level passes as an example to accomplish a similar result

Swarf Machining is a technique that is excellent for side cutting of a part, such as a tapered rib as another example.

This next video shows the Swarf machining of the fins on the cylinder block. This application of using OneCNCXR6 5 axis and Swarf machining also saves a huge amount of machining time yet produces a finished result superior to other machining methods.

The two videos showing the OneCNC capabilities of Swarf machining were machined on a Hermle 5 axis C400 5 axis machining centre in-house as part of our quality assurance testing of the OneCNCXR6 functionality.
