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.
