Mold and die machining
Adaptive milling is a new high-speed cutting strategy that can reduce machining cycle time by up to 60 percent. This intelligent roughing method enables deep cuts and constant tool load that increases material removal rate, while extending tool life. Although ideal for cutting hard materials such as steels used for tooling, Adaptive Milling can be used for high-speed machining a of range of materials, including production machining of aluminum parts.
Enhanced finishing strategies in NX CAM 12 can further improve the quality of a machined surface. The consistent step over can now be achieved across the entire machined area, regardless of the slope. Also, the intelligent finishing tool paths can recognize small cavity features in machined surfaces and machine over them, which improves cutting conditions and minimizes part preparation operations.
NX CAM software has advanced capabilities to create tool paths with smooth cutting moves. NX 12 gives you even more control to apply smooth engage, retract and transfer moves. The resulting optimized tool paths without sharp corners eliminate sudden stops and changes of direction during the machining process.
New in NX 12 is NX Machining Line Planner software for high-volume production of complicated parts with many features. NX Machining Line Planner combined with integrated NX CAM software enables distribution, balancing, programming and simulation of operations over multiple setups and machines. This integrated solution allows bi-directional change management between programming and line planning. By using a digital twin of complete machining lines to optimize the process, automotive and machinery manufacturers can reduce planning time and increase throughput.
Complex parts machining
Five-axis machining in NX enables you to produce precision complex parts with fewer operations and setups – reducing cost and delivery times. NX CAM 12 introduces new advanced capabilities that streamline the NC programming while creating efficient multi-axis tool paths.
The new Tube Milling 5-axis capabilities drastically simplify programming of hollow and narrow features, including ports of engine blocks and shrouded blisks for turbo machinery. Programming these features using conventional methods can be very time consuming and prone to errors that result in machine downtime on the shop floor. Tube Milling streamlines the NC programming process and allows you to eliminate preparation and minimize input of parameters, which enables you to easily create consistent and error-free tool paths.
Tooling manufacturers can now automatically and accurately determine tooling production costs using the new integrated capabilities of Siemens PLM Software’s solutions. The digitalized process, from part design to tooling cost estimate, can replace the time-consuming manual job tasks. This gives tool manufacturers a unique advantage in this highly-competitive industry.
NX Feature to Cost can automatically identify features on molded or stamped parts using the robust feature recognition capability. It lets you easily recognize many part features, such as undercuts, ribs and bends. During the cost calculation process, the software gives you flexibility to make right decisions based on your experience.
NX CMM Inspection Programming 12
NX CMM Inspection Programming enables programming of CMM machines, as well as visualization and analysis of measurement data into the NX graphical environment.
The new feature-specific inspection programming functions in NX 12 let you easily create point sets in circular patterns. New capabilities allow you to import inspection DMIS programs in NX to create inspection setups and generate touch trigger programs with minimum input. This enables Robcad CMM users’ easy transition to NX CMM. And, you can now use NX CMM Inspection Programming to analyze measurement data acquired by laser or white light scanner devices.
