By Stephanie Aldrete

Join us on Tuesday, June 23, 1:50 PM – 2:10 PM US Eastern Time / 10:50 AM – 11:10 AM Pacific Time 

Learn how Hendrick Motorsports uses NX CAM to machine powertrain and vehicle components for high-performance vehicles. Winner of multiple NASCAR championships, Hendrick Motorsports uses NX software to program machining operations for a wide range of components of various complexity, materials, and tolerance requirements. 

This session will provide real-world part examples that are manufactured using different CNC operations, such as 3-axis machining, 3+2 positioning and 5-axis simultaneous milling. Using NX CAM’s comprehensive CNC programming functions enables the programmers and machinists to quickly make any part, turning the engineers’ ideas into reality.
