Business challenges

  • Achieve low-volume, fast turnaround production
  • Meet demanding precision requirements
  • Overcome interruptions during online CMM programming
  • Comply with medical technology standards

Keys to success

  • Use comprehensive NX software to digitalize manufacturing operations
  • Reduce machining time using high-speed cutting methods in NX CAM
  • Integrate quality inspection programming with production preparation workflow
  • Automate CMM inspection programming using NX  


  • Streamlined production process from CAD model to machined and measured part
  • Reduced measuring equipment downtime by 80 percent
  • Increased product quality due to associativity to a single 3D model
  • Improved productivity using one software system for CAD, CAM and CMM
