NCG CAM Enables RP Tooling Ltd to Increase CNC Machining Capacity by 50%

January 15, 2010 - RP Tooling Ltd is a modern, highly efficient toolmaking company based in the heart of the West Midlands, UK. RP Tooling specialise in the manufacture of investment tools, injection mould tools, component manufacture and rapid tooling for a wide variety of industries including aerospace, automotive and commercial markets.

Shorter lead times were required to remain competitive in the manufacturing industry, especially against low cost production offered from toolmakers over-seas. At the same time RP Tooling needed to ensure that they maintained their established reputation for quality.

RP Tooling decided to purchase NCG CAM software. Since implementing NCG CAM, RP Tooling have seen the following results:

        - 50% savings on programming and machining time has doubled their CNC machining capacity.
- Increased profits as a result of reduced processing time and machining errors being reduced to a minimum.
- Able to provide customers with more comprehensive machining solutions.
- Able to easily add-on full simultaneous 5-axis option to NCG CAM later on, when a 5-axis CNC machine is purchased.

“Our philosophy of providing toolmaking excellence applies right the way through the process from design to final tool delivery, supported in no small way by our experienced personnel.“

"Automated production scheduling, data management and integrated CAD/CAM/CNC systems including NCG CAM backed by high-end IT, allows for efficient tool manufacture, giving our customers the best possible value.” Says Brett Mitchell, Director RP Tooling Ltd.

Review Article
  • 'NCG CAM January 20, 2010
    Reviewed by 'Anthony DeHart'
    A good CAM system can contribute substantial cost savings not only by traditional cycle time utilization but also for the ability to utilize existing standard cutting tools. Be able to visualize the tool path of a specific cutting tool enables the operations manager to getter better utilization from their existing inventory and avoid additional tooling purchases.
    In some cases however, the ability to develop the tool path and related machining cycle will also demonstrate the need for a custom cutting tool and easily provide quantifiable data related to the cost justification and return on investment.
    A very good article to read and consider implications for using such a software application.
