Automotive powertrain production has undergone significant changes in the recent years. The need for more fuel-efficient cars is driving increasing adoption of lightweight materials, including downsizing engine parts wherever possible. This trend requires automakers to handle more complex machining and assembly processes during powertrain production than in the past.
With digital manufacturing solutions for powertrain production from Siemens PLM Software, automakers can easily plan complete powertrain manufacturing operations. You can define CNC tool paths and calculate machining cycle times for specific stages of operations. Using integrated G-code-driven machine tool simulation, you can identify and avoid potential collisions issues between parts, machines or fixtures. Furthermore, the CNC work package can be delivered directly to the machines. This streamlined process chain can help you reduce powertrain manufacturing setup times and increase product quality.
Using NX CAM software’s advanced programming capabilities for advanced machine tools, you can reduce machining time, eliminate errors and improve part quality with optimized machining operations. You are able to:
With NX CMM Programming, you can simulate and validate CMM inspection programs to ensure that dimensional and tolerance specifications are achieved quickly and efficiently in production. You are able to:
The Manufacturing Resource Library helps you take full advantage of shop floor resources including machine tools, cutting tools, fixtures and equipment. This allows you to:
Using NX Shop Floor Data Access, you can connect the managed PLM environment for design and manufacturing planning directly to shop floor systems. You are able to:
