Aug 29, 2013: Geometric to Showcase DFMPro, CAMWorks at EMO 2013, Germany
demonstrate the latest versions of CAMWorks® and DFMPro®
Mumbai, India; Scottsdale, AZ; and Stuttgart, Germany, August 29, 2013:
GeometricLimited, (BSE:532312,NSE:GEOMETRIC), a leader in developing advanced manufacturing software will preview the latest enhancements for DFMPro, its automated design validation tool and CAMWorks, its intuitive solids-based CNC programming solution at Booth # J09, Hall 25 at EMO 2013, Hanover, Germany from September 16-21, 2013. With the focus on providing customers with the most effective tools to reduce time to market, Geometric presents solutions that focus on reducing non-value add time right from the design stage to manufacturing process planning and final shop floor delivery.
Geometric will showcase its award-winning product DFMPro, a unique solution that identifies and enables designers to fix manufacturability related issues at the design stage itself. Today, design engineers spend around 30% or more time on rework due to an iterative product development process, which impacts costs and time to market. Organizations, typically, have manual design review processes, which include filling checklists, referring handbooks and one-to-one discussions that differ from department to department. Most of these manual checks are time consuming and error prone. DFMPro comes with global best practices in the area of manufacturability and assembly, along with a powerful framework to add an organization’s in-house best practices. This allows design engineers to save time on design reviews and rework, and utilize such time in creating innovative products.
Moving from design validation to toolpath validation, a key differentiation Geometric brings with its CAM solution, CAMWorks is the availability of true G-code machine simulation. The standard machine simulation technology prevalent in the market typically simulates based on CL data only. CAMWorks Virtual Machine Module goes beyond ‘look good’ simulation and allows users to create first-time-right NC programs for complex multi-tasking machines and simulate post processed G-code seamlessly within one system saving shop floor time and improving throughput.
EMO visitors will also get a chance to see CAMWorks VoluMill™ in action on a Haas milling machine at Geometric’s booth. This ultra-high performance toolpath has provided cycle time savings of as much as 80% while maintaining tool life. This has been made possible by maintaining uniform chip formation and superior heat dissipation.
CAMWorks, a parametric, solids based CNC programming software system, brings in a revolutionary way to help machinists around the world to program fast and machine faster. CAMWorks significantly reduces programming time and removes the drudgery from CNC programming by using patented Feature Recognition technology in conjunction with full toolpath to solid-model associativity and knowledge-based machining. Besides ease-of-programming using CAMWorks, organizations can be assured of the most efficient toolpaths using CAMWorks VoluMill to maintain their competitive edge in the marketplace.
DFMPro is a design assistant solution for validating designs from manufacturing point of view right at the design stage. It automates manufacturability checks, which helps design and manufacturing engineers validate the design quickly. DFMPro assists identification of design areas that are difficult, expensive or impossible to manufacture, assemble and service. It works on the principle of ‘Right First Time’ by validating manufacturability guidelines right at the design stage. These guidelines can be easily configured as per organizational requirements in the form of rules. It also facilitates a collaborative design environment by generating reports, which are compact and easy to share.
