Siemens presents keynote at Third Wave Innovation World: 2023 Summit on Machining Simulation

By Koushik Kasturi

The Third Wave Innovation World Summit, scheduled to take place on May 24-25 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA, is a global event that brings together manufacturing visionaries, leaders, and innovators from around the world. The summit aims to explore the latest advancements and trends in technology, serving as a catalyst for transformative ideas, collaboration, and networking opportunities on a global scale.

The theme of this year’s summit will revolve around machining simulation, and among the esteemed line-up of eleven distinguished guest speakers, Vynce Paradise, Head of Product Development for the NX CAM software portfolio at Siemens Digital Industries Software, will bring his expertise to the stage.

Digitalization is a key enabler of machining and simulation

We are currently amid a digitalization onslaught in the field of product design and manufacturing. But it is worth noting that the initial foray into digitalization occurred more than fifty years ago with programs created to drive CNC machine tools working on complex surfaces, typically in the aerospace industry with the Siemens CAD/CAM software.

With the advancements in computing hardware, software development is rapidly evolving through techniques like Machine Learning and AI. The shift towards cloud-hosted computing has significant implications for software distribution, updates, licensing, and payment models. This transition plays a pivotal role in the next phase of digitalization, and Siemens Xcelerator, a curated portfolio of interconnected hardware and software, facilitates this transformative change.

Our software has evolved to a point where we can demonstrate end-to-end process threads with accurate digital representations of the product and every stage of the manufacturing process. In the session we will review where we are today and where we are heading in the evolution of digitalization.

Vynce’s voice: A sneak peek into the summit

During the guest speaker session, Vynce will discuss how far we have come with digitalization in product design and manufacturing and what future lies ahead. The emphasis will be on the significance of the digital thread, showcasing a digital-to-real application that combines design and analysis, along with additive and subtractive technologies to manufacture a lightweight component for the electric vehicle, eRod.

In addition, Vynce will also delve into the advanced capabilities of NX CAM, highlighting key features such as NC program simulation. He will talk about the importance of using one system to program, postprocess, and simulate, which helps manufacturers transform the traditional NC programming process.
