The Journey: DXF to G-Code 20.12.2018 The Journey: DXF to G-Code The in-house CAD/CAM software of the sheet metal fabricator has to be able to import or read these files and convert them to file types the in-house software can use. The .dxf (Drawing Exchange Format) CAD file type is a common type of input file for the fabrication of sheet metal parts and other file types are often converted to dxf before further processing.

How to Plan for and Invest in a New CAD/CAM System 07.12.2018 How to Plan for and Invest in a New CAD/CAM System The increased functionality of today’s CAM and CAD/CAM systems is too great to ignore, and includes high-efficiency machining techniques such as trochoidal milling and chip thinning.

The benefits of becoming a digital machine shop  12.11.2018 The benefits of becoming a digital machine shop Information already drives the machine tool industry to a certain extent, but in today’s digitalized world, managing and sharing knowledge is fast becoming a critical competitive advantage. Unfortunately, at traditionally run machine shops, that knowledge resides in spreadsheets and multiple software systems, and is shared among process owners on thumb drives, paper and other uncontrolled file systems.  Let us discuss what can be done to eliminate this.

The Impact of Optimizing Tool Path in CNC Punching 29.10.2018 The Impact of Optimizing Tool Path in CNC Punching Sheet metal software can help save time and make sheet metal fabrication more efficient by automating routine jobs and by calculating the best and fastest way to accomplish cutting and punching. The tool path optimization features can reduce time spent punching sheet metal by up to 50 percent or more through a mathematical optimization process based on tool path length.

The best CNC Programmers also know how to edit Post Processors 24.09.2018 The best CNC Programmers also know how to edit Post Processors The Post Processor is the fundamental link between the work you do inside your CAM system, and the machine that is removing the metal. Without a properly formatted post processor, you must resort to making hand-edits to your NC code. This is an error-prone and dangerous process. Making hand-edits to your NC code breaks the link between the CAM program, and the code being run on the machine.

Edgecam Partnership Optimizes Cutting Tool Performance 23.07.2018 Edgecam Partnership Optimizes Cutting Tool Performance A cutting tool distributor slashed a customer’s machining cycle on a complex aerospace component from four hours 20 minutes to just 93 minutes, by programming it with Edgecam.

Industry 4.0 has encouraged CNC growth in the Motorsport industry 25.06.2018 Industry 4.0 has encouraged CNC growth in the Motorsport industry CNC machining is enjoying its fastest ever rise in use and popularity in order to meet modern manufacturing needs. Manufacturing Global finds out how the world of motorsport is contributing to this trend.

Five Steps to Preparing for Digital Transformation 15.05.2018 Five Steps to Preparing for Digital Transformation UK manufacturing is experiencing its fastest rate of growth since early 2008, resulting in a rise in output and a certain degree of excitement among economists and manufacturers. Yet, UK businesses could still be seen as a long way from competing with the world’s production powerhouses, such as China.

Digitization in the manufacturing industry 02.05.2018 Digitization in the manufacturing industry Manufacturing in the UK is well overdue a boost. Its contribution to the country’s GDP has progressively shrunk since Britain was the workshop of the world, and now accounts for just 10 per cent of our output, overtaken by the burgeoning service sector.

How Do I Achieve Better Sheet Utilization? 24.04.2018 How Do I Achieve Better Sheet Utilization? When a fabrication facility optimizes its use of sheet metal, costs go down because there is less waste and productivity goes up because jobs take less time. Sheet metal fabrication software lets shops plan their production more efficiently and fulfill urgent orders more quickly.
