Maximise your CNC machine uptime to deliver better quality parts faster
As your manufacturing business grows in size and capability you'll naturally demand more of your people and CNC machining hardware. Choosing the right manufacturing software is crucial to allowing your team to collaborate effectively, make better use of your resources, and manage costs. Succeed here and you can bring higher quality products to market faster and unlock next-generation technology to secure your success in the future.
Daily challenges for manufacturing teams
Successful manufacturers must overcome a range of daily challenges in order to succeed.
REDUCING DELIVERY TIMES
Manufacturing departments must find ways to compress delivery times by embracing automation to reduce CAM programming time, as well as simulating the machining process to avoid costly mistakes or delays on the shop floor.
FULLY USING CNC MACHINES
Investing in more expensive and capable CNC machines enables the production of higher-value parts, but only when combined with advanced manufacturing software that can maximize machine productivity and spindle up-time.
IMPROVING PART QUALITY
Modern 3- and 5-axis CNC machines can achieve extreme levels of precision and surface finish, but this is only possible if they're given high-quality NC code that is optimized to suit the machine as well as being gouge and collision-free.
FILLING THE SKILLS GAP
Training workers is a challenge across industries. Finding ways to share the skills of your most talented workers with new and existing team members helps them to adopt best practices, become more productive sooner, and improve consistency.
What is advanced manufacturing software?
TYPICAL MANUFACTURING PROCESSES
To succeed, your manufacturing department must master a range of different technologies and processes, ranging from simple 2D machining and hole drilling to more advanced processes such as complex 5-axis surface milling, and in-cycle measurements for quality control.
WHAT IS MANUFACTURING SOFTWARE?
Manufacturing software is used to machine, print, inspect, simulate, and fabricate parts. The software can virtually simulate the manufacturing processes and then export files to control machines to run the actual production process.
WHAT IS ADVANCED MANUFACTURING SOFTWARE?
Advanced manufacturing software goes beyond simple 2D machining operations to provide more capable toolpath strategies and controls that generate safe and efficient NC machining code to drive more expensive and demanding CNC machinery.
Future proof your business with next-generation technologies
Additive manufacturing is changing how we design and make parts but it's also enabling manufacturing departments to make fixtures, tools, and spare parts, as and when needed, resulting in greater flexibility and shorter delivery times.
Use artificial intelligence to rapidly generate multiple designs based on real-world manufacturing constraints. Define materials, loads, and performance constraints then explore the cost of different methods of manufacture.
Test designs early in the manufacturing process and ensure they will survive real-world conditions. Choose from a range of mechanical, thermal, and event-based studies. Validate displacement, stress, failure modes, and more.
