Geometric to showcase ‘From Orders to Parts’ with CAMWorks® 2011 at imX 2011
Scottsdale, Arizona, August 2, 2011: Geometric ( www.geometricglobal.com), a leader in developing advanced manufacturing software, announced that it will showcase its fully automatic CNC programming system CAMWorks® 2011 ( www.camworks.com), at Booth # 1908, at interactive manufacturing eXperience (imX) Show, from September 12 -14, 2011 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV.
Announcing the new version, Sunil Palrecha, Director- Product Marketing & Sales, Geometric said, “In the current global scenario, manufacturing companies are searching for ways to automate their processes, compress delivery times, and reduce inefficiencies. In order to achieve these goals, they are looking for novel solutions for trapping manufacturing errors early in the design stage, and for effective collaboration between design and manufacturing. This can be easily facilitated by using an integrated SolidWorks solution like CAMWorks”.
CAMWorks 2011 will be demonstrated at the booth throughout the three day conference. Attendees will also have the opportunity to attend an interesting session, ‘From Orders to Parts – Integrated Design and Manufacturing’ at the Knowledge Bar on Monday, September 12, at 2.00 p.m. by Marc Bissell, Senior Applications Engineer, Geometric.
CAMWorks 2011 automates the CNC programming process, reduces programming time by as much as 90 percent, and allows engineering and manufacturing to use a single common database for both product design and final machining.
Fast and intelligent roughing
CAMWorks 2011 introduces VoluMill®, the ultra-high-performance toolpath generator for 2.5 axis and 3 axis high speed rough milling. VoluMill can reduce cycle times by more than 80 percent, thereby increasing production by up to 500 percent. In addition, VoluMill establishes and maintains ideal cutting conditions. As a result, cutting tool life is dramatically extended and tooling costs can be reduced by as much as 90 percent. VoluMill also helps avoid costly collisions and greatly extends the life of machine tools.
Automate manufacturing processes
At the heart of CAMWorks 2011 is the world’s leading Automatic Feature Recognition (AFR) software, making it the ideal CAM system for programming components. Using AFR, CAMWorks identifies the areas to be machined, and then uses its proprietary Technology Database (TechDB™) to generate toolpaths automatically. The result is fully automatic programming of families of parts, automatic programming of similar features on new parts, and the ability to incorporate manufacturing information directly into the solid model.
CAMWorks 2011 has been upgraded to find more features, while reducing computation times by more than 50 percent. As part models become increasingly complex, recognizing more features in less time represents huge time savings. The Technology Database (TechDB™) that is used to store and apply knowledge based machining information, has been enhanced to simplify the process of establishing best machining practices.
These features make CAMWorks’ knowledge-based machining capabilities easier to use, and improves the consistency and quality of the programmed parts. In addition, CAMWorks associativity accelerates new product development by automatically updating manufacturing models with design changes.
For the mold and die industry, Geometric has introduced ElectrodeWorks™, an optional electrode design solution that automates the entire process of calculation and design of EDM electrodes including design, management, documentation, and manufacturing. It is seamlessly integrated with SolidWorks/ CAMWorks Solids assuring complete parametric association of data.
CAMWorks® was the first SolidWorks Certified Gold Partner to provide a fully integrated CAM solution. CAMWorks can run within SolidWorks or as part of a cost effective stand-alone CAD/CAM package that includes CAMWorks Solids, an integrated solid modeler. CAMWorks helps manufacturers across aerospace, automotive, electronics and medical industries optimize and evolve their CAM automation process.
