Explore the key areas of this solution.
Effectively drive a wide range of CNC machine tools and robots using comprehensive programming capabilities. Generate validated machine-specific output using the integrated postprocessor and G-code driven machine tool simulation.
Automate the design of molds, progressive dies, stamping dies and fixtures using process-based design applications. Streamline tool development processes, including part design, tool assembly layout and detailed tooling design and validation.
Industrialize additive manufacturing with a seamless design-to-3D printing workflow for plastics and metals. Leverage additive manufacturing solutions for the latest technologies, such as powder bed fusion and multi-jet fusion.
Ensure manufactured parts meet quality targets with a closed-loop system to compare as-designed to as-built data. Apply statistical process control, allowing engineers to uncover errors and improve manufacturing processes.
Design, simulate and optimize jigs and tooling fixtures through structural analysis, vibration analysis and topology optimization. Reach targets like minimum stiffness, optimal weight or avoiding unwanted vibration.
Prevent damage and cracks in dies through thermomechanical simulation of damage initiation and propagation for improved run rates and capacity utilization.
Ensure proper mold cooling through thermomechanical simulation of manufacturing process. Optimize the design of molds for manufacturing of composites through simulation of curing and complete mold process performance.
Create timely, reliable cost estimates for quotations and tool cost analyses using a machine modelling process that incorporates cost information for a variety of tool and process technologies.
Integrate the entire manufacturing process, from engineering to the shop floor. Manage changes, execute processes and reuse data using proven company-standard processes on an open and secure collaboration platform.
Part manufacturers are under tremendous pressure to improve profitability and win a greater share of contracts in an industry that is innovating rapidly, while also supporting a capital project market that remains under pressure globally.
Increasing complexity in energy equipment assembly combined with the globalization of the supply chain only increases pressure on manufacturers. While some have taken steps to address these issues, it may not be enough. If current digital enterprise strategies only automate some steps in the manufacturing process using independent applications, the results are disconnected processes and inefficient workflows, forcing companies to do more to stay competitive.
Our fully integrated software capabilities seamlessly unite key processes, from engineering through manufacturing, into a digital twin that can be used to simulate, stress and optimize designs before investing in underlying physical assets.
Our integrated systems enable a model-driven process, running from CAD/CAM, CNC machining, right through quality inspection, to deliver a new level of productivity. This enables companies to explore revolutionary technologies, such as additive manufacturing and robotics, to develop next-gen products and systems.
