NEW: Toolpath Interpretation, XML, Data Validation, License Management and more
MINNEAPOLIS, MN. Oct 14, 2014– Third Wave Systems, the premier provider of validated material physics-based modeling solutions and services, has released the latest version of its NC Optimization software, Production Module 7.0.Production Module is used by the world’s top manufacturing companies to maximize potential of current manufacturing processes and dramatically improve finished part quality.
Production Module 7.0 users will see several enhancements including: a beta advanced toolpath interpretation functionality and batch queueing functionality; 2D and 3D algorithm improvements for improved modeling for indexable mills and enhanced force and optimization improvements; updates to the Japanese interface; upgraded data validation with messaging functionality; XML file structure, which should dramatically reduce simulation setup time; and a new license management functionality with monitoring capability.
Production Module users routinely generate cycle time reductions of 30 percent and have achieved up to 80 percent, while simultaneously improving tool life.
Engineers who use Production Module are able to work offline to gain better tool life information than other simulation packages or trial-and-error testing. To obtain this information, Production Module uses a library of more than 120 experimentally validated material models to reduce machining time, improve product quality and get products to market faster.
Third Wave Systems software is used by the most sophisticated companies throughout the world and across several markets including the aerospace, automotive, medical, heavy equipment, cutting tool and oil and gas industries.
