First Digital Mobile App for Manufacturing
Mazak Corp said adopting MTConnect at its Florence Ky manufacturing operation would allow it to monitor its equipment and collect valuable data for further improvements Those improvements would ensure its customers are provided the advanced technology as quickly as possible ldquoto keep pace with todayrsquos increased manufacturing production demandsrdquo the machine tool builder added
Google cofounder Sergey Brin models the Google Glass which precision machine shop ITAMCO is coordinating with MTConnect for a scalable functional process data management application
TDM software interfaces with all major CADCAM programs so accurate tool data 2D graphics and 3D models are available quickly
NCSimul Machine 9 allows users to analyze manipulate interact with and display NC programs and machining simulations in real time blockbyblock or as finished result
The JOC Premium II makes it possible to build component worksheets to manage multiple orders in support of multiple orders so programmers can send CAD files for tooling to one system and send orders for nesting to another
Rev12 has an integrated redesigned interface to the Simulink environment meaning users can create and configure the AMESim interface in Simulink with no need for Matlab environment scripts
Most of AMTrsquos manufacturing programs are based on custom designs However engineering and manufacturing are easier to coordinate with the new CAD platform The EPlan Data Portal gives AMT access to component data specifications for over 250000 components from over 46 manufacturers with just mouse click
More than 100 machine tools are involved in the production of turbine components at Siemens Energy in Charlotte The plant uses the TDM tool data management system to optimize all the complex instructions and production data mdash from the planning and programming stages including CADCAM simulation right through to presetting and tool preparation at the machining centers
ldquoThe complexity of todayrsquos products demands a systemsdriven approach to product developmentrdquo according to Siemens PLM It indicated that systems engineering is critical to product development and ldquorequires the merging of the virtual and physical domains for product developmentrdquo
