Mission Accomplished

Robotic metal polishing; Mico Industries.
Thanks to SolidCAM iMachining, cycle times are down 50 percent, tool life is up 40 percent, and Mico Industries is creating dies, weld fixtures and check fixtures without compromise.

CAD/CAM Machining Software: The Latest Trends and Advances

Figure 1. CAMWorks 2014 uses toolpath simulation for an effective review: The tool vectors for the toolpaths can be viewed during Step-through simulation, making it easier to review 5-axis toolpaths. Shops can use a WIP (work-in-process) model as a start-up stock when simulating sections of a toolpath to shorten the review time.
Nothing is changing faster or more profoundly than the software used to design and machine parts. To help shops keep up with the latest competitive advances being introduced on the shop floor, here is a report on some of the newest CAD/CAM software.

Trophy Work: Moving from Art to Part

Check out how Blue Chip Engineering was able to engineer and machine a complex, mobile sculpture for renowned designer Tom Shannon using advanced CADCAM software from Gibbs and Associates.
