Pentas Moulding B.V., a leading European company in the production of plastic products through rotational molding, and Produsoft, a specialist in production software, join forces with the implementation of the 5-axis CADCAM system WORKNC. This collaboration leads to a more efficient and flexible production of rotational molding molds.
In the ongoing pursuit of innovation and efficiency, Pentas Moulding has chosen WORKNC as their CADCAM system because of its ease of use and the quality that the software offers. The 5-axis CADCAM system WORKNC is specifically designed to simplify and accelerate the programming of complex parts. The software plays a crucial role in the production of complex rotational molding molds on the new 5-axis FOOKE Linear 411 Endura.
WORKNC is a ‘best-of-breed’ CAM software that generates reliable and efficient toolpaths. The software enables automatic machining and offers a wide range of 2-axis, 3-axis, 3+2-axis, and 5-axis machining operations. This allows users to achieve shorter production times and higher finishing quality.
This collaboration between Pentas Moulding and Produsoft is exceptional because rotational molders typically do not have the facilities to produce molds in-house. However, Pentas decided to offer this service internally 20 years ago for the following reasons:
- Flexibility and speed: By having everything under one roof, Pentas can switch and adapt faster to changing circumstances.
- Quality: Since Pentas uses the molds themselves on their rotational molding machines, they know exactly what is needed for high-quality molds.
- Independence: By keeping the production of molds in-house, Pentas has full control over the supply chain and reduces risks.
