In the late eighties, CNC programming of complex components was a difficult and lengthy process. This was when Bruno Marko, CEO and Gerard Billard, R&D Innovation Manager, the driving forces behind Sescoi, pioneered the development of a new, reliable and automatic 3-axis CAM system, which led to the launch of WorkNC in 1988.
Over the years, Sescoi has stuck to the original philosophy behind WorkNC : to speed up toolpath calculations, ensure optimum reliability to facilitate machining directly into hard materials, and maximize ease of use so that programming can be carried out on the shop floor. Automation is a theme which runs throughout the development history of the software. According to Bruno Marko, “WorkNC’s aim has always been to be the closest thing possible to ‘single-button’ CAM”
