Software helps fabricators boost forming throughput 28.12.2017 Software helps fabricators boost forming throughput
Time is money in manufacturing, and it’s all about time when you’re trying to get a new design to market or get a revision released to fix a critical problem. To meet the time crunch, designers use the latest generation of solid-modeling tools and push limits with their latest creations. As a result, fabricators must figure out how to turn art into parts, including how best to cut and bend complex designs, if bending is even an option.

Vero Goes Upstream Into Customers’ Workflow For Greater Efficiency 27.11.2017 Vero Goes Upstream Into Customers’ Workflow For Greater Efficiency
As manufacturing and related processes have evolved over time, quicker and more efficient forms of manufacturing have become the norm. Leading CAD/CAM (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing) software provider, Vero Software works at offering software for design and manufacturing processes across various industries. We met with Steve Sivitter, CEO, Vero Software, who talked about becoming a larger part of the manufacturing workflow, staying relevant with modern technologies, as well as the importance of data analysis.

Software for the smart factory: The advantages of hardware-independent software 26.10.2017 Software for the smart factory: The advantages of hardware-independent software
According to the Smart Factories and the Modern Manufacturer report, investments in smart manufacturing are set to drive a 27 per cent increase in efficiency over the next five years, boosting the global economy by a colossal $500 billion. Here, Lee Sullivan, Regional Manager for industrial automation software expert, COPA-DATA UK examines one of the key choices manufacturers will make during their digital transformation — choosing the right software.

The Benefits of Modular CAD/CAM systems 04.10.2017 The Benefits of Modular CAD/CAM systems
Modular CAD/CAM software systems allow different software functionalities to be available independently of one another.Many times CNC manufacturing businesses seek out CNC programming software only to find that they end up paying for CAM technology that they really don't need, along with maintenance that they will never use.  
A simple solution to this is the development of modular CAD/CAM software, which allows different software functionalities to be available independently of one another.

5 pillars of digital transformation success in manufacturing 20.09.2017 5 pillars of digital transformation success in manufacturing
Manufacturing remains the largest, and in many ways, most vibrant, segment of the economy. It contributes £6.7tn, globally. Contrary to widespread perceptions, UK manufacturing is strong – currently the world's ninth largest industrial nation. Manufacturing makes up 45 percent of UK exports and directly employs 2.7 million people. Spearheading the success is the rise in digital – both in terms of data and processes.

Manufacturing jobs of the future 13.09.2017 Manufacturing jobs of the future
Are you familiar with the terms IIoT and Industry 4.0? Are you aware of the digital evolution occurring in manufacturing? What does this evolution mean for manufacturing jobs and training? A comprehensive study from UI LABS and ManpowerGroup answers some of these questions.

Correct calculation of an unfolded part for a press brake 29.08.2017 Correct calculation of an unfolded part for a press brake
Understanding the relation between V opening, radius, bending allowance, and K factor is very important to better calculate an unfolded part before cutting the flat blank from the sheet metal.

Powering the rise of smart manufacturing 22.08.2017 Powering the rise of smart manufacturing
Increased competition, intricate regulatory requirements and heightened safety demands are all putting pressure on the manufacturing industry. Facing these challenges and excelling in this competitive and complex environment calls for a new age of manufacturing – one that is founded on cutting edge technology and able to protect people, environments, physical and intellectual properties whilst making the most of existing infrastructures.

Massimo Vergerio, VISI Brand Manager, about VISI, Industry 4.0 and time as the biggest change 16.08.2017 Massimo Vergerio, VISI Brand Manager, about VISI, Industry 4.0 and time as the biggest change
Vero Software software recently conducted their VISI CAD, CAM Conference for Mold and Die Professionals 2017 in Pune. Over 270 delegates attended the event. This event served as a platform for users to understand VISI product portfolio, roadmap, key release highlights, hands-on training sessions and lectures. Experts from industry and academia exchanged their ideas during user presentations, keynote talks, and social events. Sachin Nalawade, editor of Dailycadcam.com, had a chance to meet Mr. Massimo Vergerio, VISI Brand Manager along the sidelines of the conference.

CNC Punching - sheet metal working on CNC punch presses 08.08.2017 CNC Punching - sheet metal working on CNC punch presses
Computer numerically controlled (CNC) punching is a sheet metal manufacturing process that is carried out by CNC punch presses. These machines can be either a single head and tool rail (Trumpf) design or multi-tool turret design. The CNC punching machine is basically programmed to move a sheet of metal in an x and y direction so as to accurately position the sheet under the machine’s punching ram ready to punch a hole or form.

Digitizing the Press Brake Bending Process 21.07.2017 Digitizing the Press Brake Bending Process
For many years, the blanking and laser-cutting stages of the sheetmetal-fabrication process have advanced to realize the advantages of offline programming. However, many shops have been slower to adopt this practice for the more-complex 3D bending process, using special CAD/CAM solutions for generating bending sequences.

Bridging the skills gap in automotive manufacturing 13.07.2017 Bridging the skills gap in automotive manufacturing
Automotive manufacturers are currently facing a series of challenges. With increased pressure to meet customer demand for more personalised designs, they are tasked with creating a more flexible production environment, reducing engineering time and costs, and accelerating speed to market if they are to remain competitive.
In addition, like other industries, automotive is looking at a global skills shortage, in which too few engineers are sufficiently qualified to operate sophisticated automated machinery and equipment, or support the advancements available via emerging technologies.

Features and Functions of Five-Axis 03.07.2017 Features and Functions of Five-Axis
Capitalizing on its unique characteristics can help you fully realize the potential of five-axis machining. There is always a correlation between the market for a product and technology. The trend towards reducing the number of components, for example, has led to increasing complexity of individual workpieces. The availability of five-axis machining followed by five-axis simultaneous machining intensified this trend, and has ultimately resulted in multi-axis milling operations gaining a foothold in prototype construction, tool making and moldmaking, aircraft construction, and serial production.
