Jiangyin Wilson Precision Equipment is a Chinese company operating in the industrial machinery industry. It provides high-end machining solutions for precision parts and is continuously looking for new ways to advance its products by leveraging technology improvements in the manufacturing process.
Improving machine utilization with self-adaptive machining
Due to increasing product variety and complexity, one of Jiangyin Wilson’s long-term goals was improving manufacturing quality and processing time. This led the company to implement NX software in their production processes which helped them improve their utilization of machine tools through standardized parameters and implement more highly developed 5-axis CNC machining operations.
One of their main challenges was workblank inconsistency. With guidance from Siemens Expert Partner Grace Field and by using NX CAM, Jiangyin Wilson was able to solve this by creating self-adaptive machining processes, thus reducing the need for manual point selection and cutting preparation and machining time by 20 percent.
Since the introduction of NX software, we have achieved great improvements in our management efficiency, production cost, machining quality and safety.Chen Zijian, machining technology department manager, Jiangyin Wilson
