McAfee Tool & Die is successful because it’s always ready to take a leap of faith with new technology. When owner Gary McAfee bought a 5-axis machine, he realized it was time to update the shop’s CAD/CAM software.
The latest versions of the hyperMILL CAD/CAM software suite from Open Mind Technologies AG encompasses a wide range of user-friendly enhancements and new machining strategies to advance the capabilities for accurate, efficient 3D and 5-axis machining.
DP Technology, parent company of ESPRIT CAM, has created a streamlined machining experience with ESPRIT’s digital twin inside the CNC. Users can preview the entire machining process virtually on the CNC before executing their program it.
Siemens’ NX Sketch software offers unconstrained concept design sketching within the 3D environment to help increase productivity. Remarkably, NX can recognize tangents and other design relationships to adjust on the fly.
DP Technology has tweaked its flagship Esprit CAM software platform to serve a growing fabrication market: 3-D metal printing using powder bed fusion (PBF) and directed energy deposition (DED).
DP Technology, maker of the ESPRIT CAM software, offers a probing option that works with many CNC machines and probing manufacturers. Shops can expect improved part consistency and quality while reducing operator intervention.
ModuleWorks, Bosch Rexroth and CIMT combined their respective simulation, CNC and milling expertise to create new efficiencies for dental labs and practices. An operator can simulate the dental machining process offline and fix problems before the real job begins.
The synergistic alliance between Mecsoft and RobotDK means milling solutions can be adapted for robotic milling applications. The RobotDK simulation software supports over 500 robot arms and more than 50 different robot controllers.
The latest RADAN software for sheet metal fabrication provides savings on raw materials and quicker nesting production. Users can produce more parts per sheet, so it takes less time to produce a batch – saving about 50 minutes per day for 80 nests.
When introduced in 2016, Datron Dynamics’ neo used three-phase power. Now, an internally contained transformer provides single-phase power to minimize the CNC milling machine’s footprint while maximizing installation options.
DP Technology’s ESPRIT 2020 CAM system features new or improved support for 200 different Swiss-type machine models. And with its improved CAD functions, users can better design and visualize parts before manufacturing begins.
A Massachusetts computerized machine shop creates critical camera-mount brackets using Open Mind Technologies’ hyperMILL CAM software. Ramco Machine achieves the necessary tight tolerances with 5-axis machining of a nickel-iron alloy that holds up to launches and the temperature swings of outer space.
Miller Releases Improved OpenBook Learning Management System
Improvements include an updated interface and new software features that offer a more robust experience for welding instructors and students.
Optomec Receives Air Force Contract for System to Repair Aircraft Engines
LENS technology using DED process will enable production repair of titanium turbine blades at cost savings up to 70%.
