Case studies for validating cnc machines
Line supervisor John Smith is scratching his head, with an FDA noncompliance letter in one hand and a laparoscopic component from the most recent production run in the other.
The customer decided to manage their CAM data – including set up sheets, cutting simulation movies, and NC programs – in Teamcenter®, and implement Shop Floor Connect, the Siemens DNC solution, to transfer NC data directly from Teamcenter® to their CNC machines.
Having the right machines, with the right technologies specifically suited for high speed, hard milling of complex dies and molds enables you to compete with low-labor-cost countries on the other side of the globe.
For some of the most successful die/mold shops, Makino innovations in high-speed machining, technology transfer, applications, software and engineering services are key components to helping them compete and win in the new global market.
With Makino, die/mold shops are able to reduce cycle times and lead-times, lower labor costs through unattended machining processes, gain more business by offering rapid prototyping, high-performance milling and no-polish EDM burning, all while reducing total operating costs.
And with Makino’s exclusive Super Geometric Intelligence (SGI.4) controls, die/mold shops are able to process long, complex mold programs at extremely fast speeds while achieving levels of accuracy and finish previously unobtainable.
