Geometric to unveil CAMWorks® 2011 at SolidWorks World 2011
Will showcase its design for manufacturability tool DFMPro
Scottsdale, Arizona, January 13, 2011: 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 launch the latest release of its solid-based CNC programming solution, CAMWorks® 2011, and demonstrate DFMPro, at the SolidWorks World 2011, from 23-26 January, 2011 at booth #300, Henry B Gonzalez Convention Center, San Antonio, Texas, USA.
CAMWorks and DFMPro are seamlessly integrated within the SolidWorks® platform, enabling intelligence and automation in design as well as manufacturing processes. Visitors to the booth will receive demonstrations of both products during the three-day event.
CAMWorks 2011 provides significant new capabilities, including improved automatic feature recognition, a new electrode design solution for the mold and die industry, and smarter tool paths. The technologies that enable automation of NC programming have also been enhanced. User interfaces have been modified as well, making it easier to learn and use the software, while at the same time minimize overlapping into the graphics area. Two new modules, ElectrodeWorks™ and VoluMill™, further enhance the product’s automation capabilities. ElectrodeWorks module is an electrode design solution that automates all aspects related to electrodes, whereas, VoluMill provides an option to generate high-performance toolpaths for 2 and 3 axis high speed milling.
In this latest version, CAMWorks introduces more intelligence into machining operations and toolpaths so that changes to machining parameters minimize regeneration time. This is increasingly valuable to large 3-axis toolpaths. User ground turn inserts can now be used to generate finishing toolpaths in turning. This allows even greater flexibility in generating more efficient toolpaths. For more information on CAMWorks 2011, please visit www.camworks.com.
DFMPro for SolidWorks focuses on improving ease of DFM analysis and reporting by providing the following new functions:
- Casting module with built-in rules including thickness checks, draft angle checks and tolerance checks. These easy-to-configure and easy-to-use checks will help designers quickly check and refine their designs to avoid possible problems during casting.
- The SolidWorks version of DFMPro now supports the Microsoft Excel based DFM analysis report
The new casting module broadens the scope of out-of-the-box manufacturing checks provided by DFMPro. The Excel-based reports combined with eDrawings reports facilitate easy collaboration, communication and tracking of DFM issues to closure.
