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.
MachiningCloud fast-tracks a shop’s entire workflow by providing direct access to tooling data and speed-and-feed recommendations that can be read directly into CAM and simulation programs. In addition to enabling users to quickly configure the right tool for a job, the platform provides pricing and availability.
With simultaneous 4- and 5-axis machining capabilities, the Mastercam Multiaxis add-on puts basic and advanced machining strategies into the user’s hands. A ‘near miss tolerance’ setting lets the machinist determine how close the cutter can come to the part.
Adding Romax’s expertise in electromechanical drivetrain design and simulation to its Manufacturing Intelligence division will, says Hexagon, enhance its Smart Factory Solutions.
