ModuleWorks, Sandvik Machining Join to Develop Prism for Touch-based CNC Programming
AACHEN, Germany, Dec 11, 2018 – ModuleWorks, the leading supplier of CAD/CAM software components for machining and simulation, and Sandvik Machining Solutions are collaborating on the development of the next generation of touch-based programming technology that enables users to quickly create and simulate CNC programs.
The new application is called Prism and is being developed by Applied Manufacturing Technologies, a division of Sandvik Machining Solutions. Applied Manufacturing Technologies is combining the deep manufacturing know-how of Sandvik Machining Solutions with the latest ModuleWorks toolpath generation and simulation technology to empower engineers and operators with the new shop floor programming concept that increases productivity and machine uptime.
As Anders Lindh, President of Applied Manufacturing Technologies at Sandvik Machining Solutions explains: “Prism opens a new era of smarter manufacturing by making the wealth of machining know-how available in an easy-to-use CNC programming environment. Working together with ModuleWorks enables us to combine this digital knowledge-base with the latest toolpath algorithms and simulation software to develop an integrated solution that truly modernizes the machining process.”

“As machining becomes more and more sophisticated, the industry needs intelligent solutions that assist engineers and operators as much as possible. Around half of the parts produced today are not programmed using CAD/CAM software but are instead programmed on the shop floor and we aim to simplify this process”, says Yavuz Murtezaoglu, Managing Director of ModuleWorks. “We are very excited to work together with Applied Manufacturing Technologies at the forefront of this development and to see how our combined technologies are shaping the future of automated manufacturing.”
