“Vericut Reviewer” iPad App Improves Shop Communication

17 04 2014

CGTech, the developer of Vericut NC verification, optimization, and simulation software, has announced that its new “Vericut Reviewer” iPad App is available through the iPad App store starting from March 1, 2014.

With VERICUT Reviewer on the iPad, shop floor personnel and other production staff can view 3D animations of CNC machining processes at the machine tool, during meetings, or at any other location.

Intuitive touch controls and navigation make it easy to rotate, pan and zoom to view machining operations from any perspective as they are being simulated.

“It’s no longer necessary to visit the NC programming office or an engineering workstation to view an NC program being simulated on a virtual CNC machine,” says CGTech Product Marketing Manager Bill Hasenjaeger. “With Vericut Reviewer on the iPad, shop floor personnel and other production staff can view 3D animations of CNC machining processes at the machine tool, during meetings, or at any other location. Intuitive touch controls and navigation make it easy to rotate, pan and zoom to view machining operations from any perspective as they are being simulated.”

Virtual machining for real analyses
Vericut’s simulation moves according to the NC code the same as the CNC machine, so virtual machining exactly mimics real machining. The user can select and closely examine specific sections of NC code where a potential problem might exist.

All is documented
A Vericut report containing information about cutting tools, job setup, machining instructions and other information can be automatically packaged within each saved Reviewer session, creating a virtual workshop document. Vericut reports are PDF files automatically generated during Vericut simulations.

A powerful tool alreday available
The NC programmer saves a “Reviewer” file after simulating his NC programs in Vericut to ensure they are correct.  The file can be saved at any point in a Vericut simulation session. It is then transferred to the Vericut Reviewer iPad App through iTunes, Dropbox for iPad App, or email. The App is offered free of charge. More information and sample Reviewer files can be downloaded from cgtech.com/ipad/

Never say never. Always be innovative!

16 04 2014

Established in 1953, TDC is a leading manufacturer in Japan with proprietary expertise of precision technologies. TDC has continued to cultivate their markets through upgrading the level of their technology especially in super precise mirror polishing.

TDC

Used in the sample return capsule for Japan Aerospace eXploration Agency (JAXA)Hayabusa2 asteroid probe. Because the purpose of this capsule was for collecting samples from the asteroid only, the finish has to be totally clean, with no material derived from earth inside.

One-of-a-kind nano-technologies for mirror polishing, ultra precise processing and lapping
Therefore the super precise mirror polishing has been instrumental. This technology is being used in basic experiments in labs of major firms and universities to keep the test material even when investigating properties specific to a substance such as hardness, intensity, or composition. The company’s stance has been not to deny any request, challenging themselves to process even the most difficult of materials. They have experiences to process tantalum, tantalum, SiC, silicon and sapphire, just to name a few of the examples.

With IT development and strengthening of sales overseas, taking their unique technology to the world
The company’s technical innovations have included IT development within the company; they have introduced a system that can grasp the situation of company plants no matter whether you are in Tokyo, Osaka or Miyagi. The original intent of this particular internal tech development was to make production processes efficient, but as a result, they became able to report all production developments to customers as they happen in real time. With this system, they received the “Small Company Management Prizes Judging Committee’s Promotion Award” in 2009, for companies which put superb IT management into practice. It has been useful in information sharing between the company and customers as they work through hard issues.

Also available in Europe
As for overseas development, from 2008 the company has participated in exhibitions in North America and Europe. It is responding to orders from various countries like the US, Canada, UK, Germany, Holland, France and Scandinavian countries. Of the eight sales representatives, six are well versed in English. They can do inquiries and deals over the phone and by email without any time lag.
Using their own technology, which is to be found nowhere else, the company has continued to provide business solutions in various areas domestically, and now plans to expand its market first to Europe, then the US, and finally to the rest of the world.

Secure and efficient parting off with plug and play coolant

15 04 2014

CoroCut QD – the reliable system from Sandvik Coromant for deep grooves and parting off with long overhangs expands the offer of inserts and durable tools with over and under coolant. The system is supported with plug and play adaptors for easy handling and efficient coolant supply.

CoroCut QD expands the options for deep grooves and parting off with a new offer of inserts and durable tools with rigid clamping and efficient coolant supply.

CoroCut QD expands the options for deep grooves and parting off with a new offer of inserts and durable tools with rigid clamping and efficient coolant supply.

For bar feed manufacturers, process security in terms of good chip control and long reliable tool life is the key to an efficient production. To meet these needs CoroCut QD combines strong tools and inserts with rigid clamping and efficient coolant supply.

Chip control and easy coolant connection
An important aspect for long tool life and few machine stoppages is good chip control. This is achieved by combining over- and under coolant on all tools which keeps the temperature down at the cutting edge for less tool wear and a more stable performance, while at the same time providing for efficient chip evacuation. Add to the support from plug and play adaptors for easy coolant connection and a rigid yet user-friendly clamping mechanism for easy insert changes, and you get CoroCut QD. A system that not only ensures process security, but also easy handling for real machining efficiency.

Durable tools
At the cutting edge, the cutting forces are high. To withstand this, the tool material has high fatigue resistance and the tool tip seat features a back stop so the insert stays in its position preventing the seat wearing down when the insert is indexed. Also the inserts themselves are developed with good coating adhesion and high edge-line security, for long tool life in every parting off operation.

Siams 2014, what customers want…

14 04 2014

When a company is experiencing healthy development and everything is running smoothly, the risk of operating on autopilot increases, which can lead to problems. It was this pitfall that the organisers of SIAMS wanted to avoid. They carried out a large-scale survey of the event’s exhibitors, both actual and potential, in order to better meet requirements. Before next issue that will take place in less than one month Interview with Francis Koller, director.

When asked to evaluate their satisfaction during the trade fair, exhibitors gave a score of 5.2 to the quality of the assistance provided and 5 to the quality of the visitors (good). The quantity of visitors, the quality of the welcome provided and the infrastructure were deemed to be highly satisfactory.

When asked to evaluate their satisfaction during the trade fair, exhibitors gave a score of 5.2 to the quality of the assistance provided and 5 to the quality of the visitors (good). The quantity of visitors, the quality of the welcome provided and the infrastructure were deemed to be highly satisfactory.

A specialist company carried out the telephone survey using a representative sample of customers and non-customers from both French- and German-speaking Switzerland. According to the specialist institute, the results are statistically representative and provide excellent scope for interpretation and use.

Why a survey?
“We had a good idea of the perception of SIAMS and the satisfaction of our exhibitors, but we wanted more “scientific” data to guide our decisions,” explains the director. The result: Perceptions that correspond well with the SIAMS vision. So, was this survey a waste of time? Mr. Koller states: “Absolutely not. Certainly we were very pleased to discover we were getting many things right, and that the positioning of SIAMS is almost unanimously clear, but we also identified several areas for improvement. I would also like to thank everyone who took the time to participate and answer our questions.” The average interview lasted 15 minutes, however some took over 45 minutes!

You can download the whole story published in Eurotec here.

 

PS: We’ve seen a nice invitation for Siams largely distributed in Sweden… even if regional in Switzerland, France and Germany, this trade show clearly brings people from many more countries. Its specialisation is certainly one of the reasons of this success.

Ehn&Land from Sweden activelly communicates for Siams and organise a "common trip" for customers from Sweden.

Automated die positioning increases bending machine productivity

11 04 2014

Hannover Messe Day 5 – Production in the metalworking industry has become increasingly hectic. Contractors and production departments must produce parts in smaller lot sizes and at a faster pace. Today I’ve discovered components to help machines manufacturer being more efficient.

Trumpf is the world‘s leading producer of machine tools for the metalworking industry, and they have responded to the plight of their customers by offering machine design innovations that improve productivity and efficiency.

Trumpf is the world‘s leading producer of machine tools for the metalworking industry, and they have responded to the plight of their customers by offering machine design innovations that improve productivity and efficiency.

Their TruBend Series 5000 bending machine, for instance, is a press brake that includes an optical positioning aid making it easier to switch to a new part geometry. This machine also includes an automatic angle measurement system that helps operators maintain desired geometries, beginning with the very first part.

A complete process
Press brakes bend metal by vertically pushing a punch into a v-shaped die. This deforms the sheet metal located between the punch and die, thus creating an angular bend. Taking a piece of sheet metal that has previously been bent to a 30° angle and placing it between two flat punches creates a fold. A typical production application will require dies be repositioned to change between the bend and the fold function. Repositioning dies quickly is not the only concern – positioning must also be as accurate as possible to maintain quality of the parts produced. Trumpf has achieved quick and precise positioning with Halstrup-Walcher GmbH positioning systems „LPE“.

Positioning systems for nearly all applications
Two of these precision powerhouses (“powerhouses” because they have to generate up to 1000 N of lifting power) position the heavy lower tools to within 0.05 mm – and in just seconds. Keeping the die from tipping is crucial, which is achieved by the parallel positioning systems being well synchronized.Not only are these positioning systems designed for precision and efficiency—long product life is always a goal as well, ensuring superior reliability of the entire machine as it turns out precise metal bending products even after 10 or 15 years.

To be discovered at Hannover Messe today on the Hall 15, Stand F36.

The exhibitors had the opportunities to discuss with the Swiss official representative about their hopes for the show and explain their strengths and specialties.

The Swiss both was perfectly organised by Switzerland Global Enterprise (formerly Osec) and Schoch Marketing.

We will publish a few figures on this year’s show tomorrow and we will certainly come back on the skills of the Swiss exhibitors later.

Cheers,

Pierre-Yves
