DP Technology’s Esprit CAM software program supports 3-, 4-, and 5-axis directed energy deposition (DED), a form of 3D printing that uses a focused energy source such as a laser or electron beam to melt material.
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.
Combilift and Author Join Forces on New Kids’ Book
Award-winning Combilift and award-winning author, Emer Conlon, have produced a children’s storybook that features forklift heroes and teaches important values. The ‘combi-nation’ has the added benefit of educating young kids and their parents about the company’s equipment and the material handling industry.
ARCH Cutting Tools Takes Top Place in ANCA Competition
A complex, multifunctional tool measuring an inch in diameter with a long functional cutting length, the ARCH tool checked every box to win the prestigious ANCA Tool of the Year 2020.
