Digital Machine Shop: Accelerate Production with Multiple Setup Machining


Digital Machine Shop: Accelerate Production with Multiple Setup Machining

Join this webinar to learn about manufacturing parts using multiple setup machining. Gain insights into the latest CNC programming and machining technology that can boost your productivity.

Siemens experts will demonstrate how NX CAD/CAM software helps you unify all the manufacturing stages. You can optimize part geometry, create associative fixtures, automate toolpath generation, and validate CNC programs – all in one system. The end-to-end connectivity enables a highly efficient production, resulting in shorter lead times and improved part quality.

Learn how you can run tomorrow’s manufacturing processes, today.

In this webinar about multiple setup machining, you will learn how to:

  • Optimize part models for manufacturability
  • Design associative fixtures for flexible CNC programming
  • Quickly create in-process stage models with Synchronous Technology
  • Automatically program parts using multiple setup machining
  • Digitally validate CNC programs to maximize machine uptime
  • Effectively handle changes using a connected end-to-end manufacturing
  • Integrate your manufacturing processes with the digital twin

Gain efficiency using one comprehensive CAM software

Program any job using one CAM software. NX CAM provides comprehensive and integrated NC programming capabilities in a single system. This enables the use of consistent 3D models, data and processes to seamlessly connect planning and shop floor operations with a digital thread.

You can streamline and automate NC programming, while reducing cycle time, using powerful, application-specific tools. From 2.5-axis machining and mold manufacturing, to simultaneous 5-axis milling and high-volume production, NX allows you to use one CAM software to make better parts faster.

JK Machining: Staying competitive through automation

This Michigan-based company focuses on class-101 molds—high-production molds designed for 1 million or more cycles. Its automotive and medical customers demand high quality, tighter tolerances, timely delivery and reasonable costs.

Formerly, JK Machining used separate software systems for mold design and manufacturing. To move from design to production required multiple data transfers that data introduced additional steps and errors in the process. Furthermore, it complicated the handling of inevitable and frequent design changes.

JK Machining selected NX based on several key characteristics of the software. The CAD tools of NX include powerful functions for working with customer’s models. For NC programming, NX CAM’s leading-edge 5-axis and high-speed machining capabilities enable JK to take full advantage of its advanced machine tools. With its fully integrated capabilities, NX offered automation of the entire mold development process, from design through manufacturing.
