Integrated CAD/CAM software speeds up the creation of production data

By Stephanie Aldrete

Why do so many manufacturers turn to Siemens integrated CAD/CAM software?  In a new success story about long-time customer, Heiwa Sangyo, you’ll learn why. 


Heiwa Sangyo Co., Ltd, a manufacturer of transportation and aerospace products that require high quality and precision, turned to Siemens PLM Software to help them move away from an expensive numerical control (NC) programming system with a poor cost to performance ratio.

Siemens PLM was selected mainly because we are well established in the low power molding industry — an area in which Heiwa Sangyo wanted to expand, and because of the cost of the solution. This success story will explain in detail the many reasons why Siemens was the best choice. 

Must-read success story highlights:

  • Heiwa Sangyo was challenged by the fact they had to create additional data for the manufacturing process because customers supply only the model of the finished part with some machining instructions. Now the creation of production data is much faster with our integrated CAD/CAM software.
  • They no longer have to rely on other companies to create postprocessors. Why? The NX CAM Post Builder has the capability to customize postprocessors.
  • Software training time is shorter. The integrated CAD/CAM software only requires half the training time.
  • Support is a key reason for the use of Siemens NX software as Heiwa Sangyo’s primary system.
  • Using Siemens integrated CAD/CAM software is an advantage because it supports advanced capabilities of the latest machine tools.
  • Siemens integrated CAD/CAM software creates the production NC data from customers and sends it to machine tools.
