Making product development more accessible has been SOLIDWORKS’ mission from day one. Access to the right tools at the right time is critical to bringing ideas to market faster, more efficiently, and at a lower cost. More importantly, it’s paramount that SOLIDWORKS provides these design tools on customers’ terms. Users can be more innovative than ever. SOLIDWORKS is committed to matching their enthusiasm with the most powerful and accessible tools in the industry.
At Accelerate 2017 conference in Boston, Autodesk was showcasing how the Fusion product innovation platform is helping solve manufacturing challenges for a company trying to brighten the future of cancer care with next-generation therapies. Also in the spotlight at the annual event is a new IoT Discovery Toolkit, developed in partnership with Electric Imp, aimed at fast-tracking Internet of Things (IoT) business transformation.
Wessling (Germany), 19 September 2017 – True to EMO 2017’s theme ‘Networked systems for intelligent production’, CAM/CAD manufacturer OPEN MIND is debuting hyperMILL® VIRTUAL Machining, a key component for implementing digital production systems. The simulation solution creates a perfect virtual rendering of reality in the machine based on NC data. Built with Industry 4.0 in mind, the tool generates a bi-directional communication link between the machine control and the hyperMILL® VIRTUAL Machining Center, thus delivering a new level of process control and optimisation.
Additive manufacturing (AM) gives us tremendous freedom to create components with free-form and intricate features, direct from CAD and without the need for expensive tooling. These complex designs would be impractical, if not impossible, to produce conventionally. Additive components are often lighter, more efficient and better adapted to their application.
The aerospace industry is one of the most technically challenging industries in the world. There are growing pressures to look at new manufacturing methods to reduce production times and increase efficiency. One of the determining factors in the production chain is the choice of the right CAM solution. Reduced machining times with high material removal rates of up to 95 per cent require state-of-the-art CAM solutions. OPEN MIND, a leading developer of CAM/CAD-Software, offers with its CAM system hyperMILL® intelligent solutions to meet the challenges rising in the aerospace industry.
