Combining high-pressure water jet deburring with low-pressure part cleaning and drying processes, the EcoCvelox from Ecoclean Inc. is a one-stop finishing solution. Highly configurable equipment enables highly flexible process design.
One of the fastest-growing sectors of North American metal manufacturing is laser processing of tubes and profiles. Design software and machines that automatically perform multiple manufacturing steps are making this complicated fabrication process cost-effective for smaller companies.
By enabling its Radan CAD/CAM design software to connect seamlessly with the 2021 release of Workplan MES software, Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence is enabling sheet metal fabricators to establish a complete digital thread from start to finish.
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.
Quoting software saves time and money throughout the entire production process if it’s properly integrated with CAD/CAM and manufacturing system software. If it’s not, your team’s doomed to constantly reinvent the wheel.
Lantek’s 2020 version contains more than 100 improvements that emphasize process efficiency as well as remote working for users. Lantek Expert, Lantek Flex3d, Lantek Integra, and Lantek MES Manager have evolved with algorithms to meet market needs.
The world’s top engine builders and auto enthusiasts rely on Borla Performance Industries exhaust systems, but parts were taking too long to program and produce. Switching from CNC machining to automated plasma cutting is drastically reducing cycle times.
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.
Lantek’s Intelligent Collision Avoidance (ICA) detects when sheet metal contours or scrap pieces pose a risk of interfering with the cutting head. And when collisions are averted, fiber laser cutting productivity soars.
The future of Industry 4.0 will change how computer systems are structured, and the future is here with Edge computing. This hybrid technology manages the enormous volume of data generated from CNC machines to produce useful and accessible information that optimizes factory operations.
Lattice Technology offers companies that design and manufacture products a way to set up remote workers with tools that maximize productivity and ensure quality. Unlike the native CAD system, rife with limitations, Design Review is specifically intended for use by the entire, extended team.
MecSoft’s AlibreCAM 2020 integrates with Alibre Design and Atom 3D from Alibre Inc. With just one interface to learn, users will experience many feature improvements in 2 ½, 3, 4 & 5 Axis machining, as well as a number of productivity and user interface enhancements.
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%.
