Scottsdale, Arizona, June 1, 2012: Geometric Limited (BSE: 532312, NSE: GEOMETRIC), a leader in Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Global Engineering Services and Offshore Product Development (OPD) solutions and technologies, will demonstrate the latest version of its solid-based CNC programming solution, CAMWorks® 2012 at Hardinge Machine Technology Show (HMTS 2012), at Hardinge Headquarters, Elmira, New York from June 6-7, 2012.
The new functionalities of CAMWorks 2012 uses one of the world’s best automatic feature recognition (AFR) and knowledge-based machining (KBM) to generate CNC programs automatically, thereby reducing programming time from hours to minutes or even seconds for the entire line of Hardinge CNC lathes and machining centers.
CAMWorks 2012 is the premier CAD/CAM solution for SolidWorks® and combines the ability to build full assemblies including Hardinge workholding, tooling, and rotary products with the power of machine simulation, to provide the ultimate Hardinge programming solution.
“The combination of CAMWorks and SolidWorks® provides the world’s foremost CAD/CAM solution for the Hardinge line of CNC machines. Only CAMWorks employs the best automatic feature recognition with knowledge based machining to create fully associative tool-paths that update automatically to design changes at the push of a button. CAMWorks is by far the world’s fastest, most powerful, and easiest to use CNC programming solution ever developed for Hardinge customers,” said Don Dorsey, CAMWorks Channel Sales Manager - North and South America.
In addition to being able to error free post processors for most of Hardinge CNC lathes and machining centers, Geometric supplies various modules of CAMWorks specifically designed to provide the ideal CNC programming solution. It also provides custom software programming services and API (Application Programming Interface) development to help Hardinge customers fully automate the CNC programming of families of parts.
