Breakout Session: Latest in Multi-Axis Machining


Multi-axis machining has grown increasingly capable over the years. Widely used for applications in aerospace and medical industries, 5-axis machining has been increasingly used by mold and die makers, enabling them to accelerate machining of complex parts in hard materials, while achieving mirror finish. 

Learn how NX CAM’s advanced multi-axis machining capabilities will make you more competitive. Streamlined 5-axis programming, new cutting strategies, and support for barrel-shaped tools can dramatically expand your machine shop capabilities to take on a wider range of jobs, while reducing your production cost per part. Join this session to learn how to leverage the latest 5-axis capabilities in NX CAM for your applications.

Learning Objectives:




  • Increase productivity and proficiency with current/future software




  • Learn new and exciting product features




  • Optimize the use of existing software

Demonstration: 5-Axis Machining – CAD, CAM and CNC


Complex 5 axis machining requires starting with useable geometry, generating effective tool path, and managing how the machine controller handles it. We will discuss typical issues found in aerospace geometry and how to deal with these anomalies. Advanced mathematical functions available in modern controllers and how to use them to solve part positioning errors, adaptive machining, axis cross over errors and surface finish issues will be discussed. Examples of effective integration between NX CAM and SINUMERIK 840d will be presented.

Learning Objectives:




  • Participants will gain knowledge of what it takes to solve issues while machining complex aerospace components.




  • We will demonstrate a use case where issues in CAD, CAM, CNC and Inspection contributed to a single problem.




  • Upon completion, participants will have a better understanding of how 5 axis tool paths are created in the CAM system and how they are handled at the machine.

Date: Thursday, June 12, 11:15am – 12:00pm, Room 334


 


Demonstration: Machine Smarter with Barrel-Shaped Cutting Tools


Learn about the advantages that the new barrel-shaped tools provide. Using NX CAM, you can program jobs using barrel tools to dramatically reduce your machining time, while improving the surface finish. Specifically designed for five-axis milling, barrel-shaped tools allow a large cutting contact with the workpiece. This will enable you to achieve the desired finish quality with significantly fewer passes. Join this session to see how NX CAM provides an easy way to take advantage of these innovative cutting tools in your machine shop!


Learning Objectives:




  • Bring awareness and clarity to business challenges




  • Increase productivity and proficiency with current/future software




Presenters:  Michael Taesch, Director NX CAM Software, Siemens Digital Industries; Mathieu Tapp, MBA, CEO at Fraisa USA Inc.


Date: Thursday, June 13, 1:30pm – 2:15pm, Room 334
