Tecnomatix solutions for Automotive Powertrain applications will improve your competitiveness by:
Tecnomatix solutions for Automotive Powertrain applications enables you to plan a complete powertrain line while considering all available and existing machine and line components. Using 3D CAD data, the system automatically defines the part's machining features and their hierarchy. Manual definition of features is also possible in the absence of 3D data. The system automatically selects suitable operations and tools from the system's library of knowledge and best practice operations.
Tecnomatix solutions Automotive Powertrain generates cost estimates of selected operations, considering the machining time, cutting tools and cost of material removed. You can compare and analyze line proposals and their performance, including machining line throughput, resource utilization, work-in-progress, buffer utilization and bottlenecks.
Tecnomatix solutions for Automotive Powertrain also allows you to design efficient and balanced machining lines by allocating operations according to machine specifications. The software generates NC tool paths and calculates machining cycle times for each set of features and their operations. By running a 3D simulation of the NC path you can detect collisions between the part and the machine or fixtures, analyze material removal and optimize cycle times. The optimized program can then be automatically downloaded to machines in NC program format (G-code).
The system generates discrete-event simulation models, providing a dynamic perspective of the balanced production line. You can analyze throughput, work-in-progress, resource utilization and buffer sizes.
