OneCNC is the perfect choice

Machinery Solutions Pty Ltd is a specialist designer and manufacturer of machine components based in Brisbane, Australia. This forward thinking company has advanced their manufacturing capabilities to keep up with the challenges facing Australian manufacturers.

Managing director Grant Richards has made the bold move to 5 axis machining. "This decision was made for us not by us" , our industry is moving at breakneck speed and we need to be in step or one step ahead."

“After looking at what machinery was needed, we settled with the Deckel Maho. The DMU 50 fitted the bill. the latest Heidenhain control was a great plus. We found that OneCNC was the only CAD/CAM package that could offer complete 5 axis solids based design compatibility with the latest Heidenhain CNC machine control.

This now gives us the ability for high speed production and precision machining for 3, 4 and 5 axis parts by CNC machining centers as well as CNC machining by Lathe. We also have OneCNCXR2 Professional Lathe CAD/CAM.

We had to be absolutely sure we had the right tools to attack Queensland's ever increasing Aerospace market. The last piece of the puzzle was CAD/CAM software "OneCNC Mill Expert was the only software package to do what we needed and it was another decision that was made for us. We had used OneCNC for six years, but the OneCNC Expert with the 5 axis had the competition beat."

We know of users of other software that they only use CAD/CAM when absolutely necessary because their systems are hard to use. We know different because we found that the OneCNC with all the machining strategies bi-directional file translation along built in Heidenhain canned cycles and native Heidenhain code for for the control provides the ease for 3, 4 or 5 axis programming means that all our programming is easily and safely done off line.

"The only buttons we now use on the Heidenhain controls are on and off, OneCNC allows the machines to run whilst we program the next job, that's important to us as we are a small batch shop."

"It's a great package" and the perfect choice added Grant "A fast modern machine software package that does exactly what I want. We have now machined parts for the medical,aerospace and automotive industries, on time to drawing and customers are coming back."

Perfecting Putters with OneCNC

  Oct 14 2009

 Yar_golf_1 

YAR Golf, located in Arizona, proudly engineers, manufactures, and assembles their exclusive putters in Tempe, Arizona USA.  The uniqueness of the YAR GX1 Putter is unparalleled, with a specific design concept that allows players to up the ante in their golfing game. 

YAR Golf has created the only Golf Club / Putter in the golfing industry that has ever been accepted by USGA for their Adaptive Golf Program. This year alone there were 19 other devices submitted and rejected by the USGA’s Executive Board for this distinction. Capable of lifting the golf ball out of the cup without the player needing to bend. Aging baby boomers and the physically impaired is not their only clientele. YAR Golf is the only company that has focused on their specific needs in the game of golf by designing a putter that has features intended to enhance the game of players at all skill levels.

Created by a Materials Science and Engineering PhD. The YAR GX1 Putter has many features that set it apart from the standard putter designs, which have been left unchanged and stagnant for quite some time. Using MOI (Mass Moment of Inertia) and Parallel Axis Linearization combined with Aeronautical Physics, its design and shape have created the largest true Sweet Spot in the Putting industry, this phenomena is not found on standard putters, as the YAR putter’s entire face is considered a ‘sweet spot’. 

In a 2009 study, the YAR putter was put to the test by Golf Test USA.  They summed up that the YAR putter performed beyond its claims and it received the highest ranking among putters worldwide.  From Golf Test USA “…because of its design and balance it was very easy to putt with just one hand.  The overall design of the YAR putter can help any golfer who has physical limitations such as bending over due to back pain.  The YAR putter can easily mark the ball and pick it up at the same time, and pick the ball up out of the hole.  It can also be used to pick other clubs off the ground.  This is the perfect putter for “adaptive” golf.  The YAR GX1 putter was one of only 8 putters, out of 47, awarded a 5 star rating based on overall test results.  The YAR Golf GX1 putter has received our coveted “Seal of Excellence” [for its outstanding results]”

Dr. V, the creator of the YAR putter, contacted OneCNC in 2007 looking for a CAM solution to make her new concept a reality.  Because of the secrecy involved in the YAR putter concept and patent, all prototyping needed to be completed in house.  Knowledge in the CNC Machining industry was minimal for Dr. V, so an easy to use and powerful CAM program was paramount.  After evaluating over 6 different CAM programs a one-on-one online demonstration was scheduled with OneCNC’s technical support.  “OneCNC was superior to the other CAD/CAM systems I appraised.  It was easier, offered more design tooling procedural advantages, was a pleasure to acclimate with, and the technical support representative was the most knowledgeable.  In fact, I purchased an upgrade the day after my initial 1-hour consultation, and I have never regretted that decision”.  
Running XR3 Mill Professional gave Dr. V full control over the designing and machining of the YAR putters. 

When asked about OneCNC’s technical support and customer service she stated, “The OneCNC support and office staffs are awesome, caring, and spectacular.  Kudos and accolades to all at OneCNC.

Yar Golf has donated over $50,000 in GX1 putters to disadvantaged golfers and charities around the world and is the Official Putter of numerous Disabled Organizations; as well as their “Support a Disabled Veteran” project, which supplies free golfing equipment for disabled American Veterans.
