Digitalization was center stage at IMTS 2022, the largest manufacturing technology show in North America. Attendees visited Siemens booth to witness the entire production process of a reengineered steering knuckle for an electric vehicle (EV) with a focus on optimizing the manufacturability, weight, performance and cost. The next phase of the production process demonstrates how comprehensive manufacturing plans are developed with Teamcenter software.
In this episode, hear from Mike Mannino, Siemens Senior Technical Solution Consultant, who demonstrates how process planning helps manufacturers automate programming by applying their own standard CNN programming, inspection path methods, tools and program templates to ensure that correct revisions of parts are programmed and measured on the shop floor.
By creating a single source of data for the entire digital manufacturing process, each step is optimized using a highly efficient machining method that uses a combination interoperable digital tools and IoT-enabled machine technologies.
