From the Digital Twin to the Shop Floor
Why waste time starting every job from scratch when you can improve it by up to 90 percent? Our proven single-environment solution allows manufacturers to go from the initial design phase to the shop floor.
The Model-Driven Process
With innovative solutions quickly becoming the new norm for the manufacturing world, companies are reaping many advantages, including: a reduction in cost and time with a digital twin; improved manufacturability with design simulation, a full-scope view of what makes up their product’s data, and a clearer understanding of their product lifecycle using a model-driven process.
By leveraging the existing part model, users can easily prepare a complete set of shop documentation (CNC programs, tool lists, setup sheets and drawings, for instance) and directly transfer to the machine tools on the shop floor – making toolpath creation and validation a seamless task. In addition, it not only provides machine automation capabilities but also the ability to recognize your machining features. In conclusion, our solution enables optimized machining processes.
Enabling Efficiency in Heavy Equipment and Industrial Machinery
The model-driven process ensures efficiency in the manufacturing lifecycle and offers significant advantages, including: associativity to the supplied design data; a concurrent workflow; and product data accuracy. From planning stages to part manufacturing, companies in the heavy equipment / industrial machinery sector have the flexibility to program any job on any machine tool seamlessly with our part design and manufacturing products.

Two Roads to Toolpath Evolution
The traditional toolpath route follows a desired profile at a predetermined offset while working its way down into the material. It is most effective when used with the tool’s length on one continuous path. But this approach produces a plethora of crescent shaped paths that go from one end to the other and then back again.
In Two Roads to Toolpath Evolution, Ben Mund (Sr Market Analyst at CNC Software, Inc) introduces dynamic toolpath machining. Get a history lesson on traditional and dynamic machining, as well as strategies that dramatically improve metalcutting productivity.
