The event is presented in conjunction with Okuma and software providers Prolink and Applied Automation Technologies (AAT). The program&nbsp; will focus on Renishaw&rsquo;s Productive Process Pyramid, a systematic approach to reducing waste and variation in manufacturing processes through a variety of innovative technologies, proven software and expert support.</p> <p> The Renishaw Productive Process Pyramid provides a building-block approach to eliminating variation at its source, controlling it from the bottom up in four steps: establish stable machine operating conditions; address predictable sources of variation, such as location of the part, size of tools and offsets; deliver intelligent in-process feedback; and ensure the process and the part are checked against specifications via post-process monitoring.</p> <p> Prolink offers an entire suite of software solutions to automate data collection and quality analysis information and share it organization-wide. The company&rsquo;s QC-CALC statistical process control (SPC) program is compatible with Renishaw&rsquo;s most advanced metrology hardware. It automatically collects data, creates a database, and displays the collected information in graph form with easy filtering for detection of negative trends and generation of exception reports.</p> <p> AAT&rsquo;s Computer Aided Part Programming System (CAPPS) software includes a machine tool metrology program, CAPPS-NC, and brings the measurement capabilities of CMMs to CNC machines. CAPPS-NC interfaces with multi-axis machining centers and multi-styli probe configurations, and is used for on-machine, in-process metrology applications to provide closed-loop feedback to the manufacturing process. Other CAPPS software includes CAPPS-OFFLINE, a full-featured offline CMM programming package that simulates the total inspection process, and CAPPS-DMIS, the first CAD-based CMM metrology software for the retrofit and OEM markets. CAPPS-DMIS runs the latest probe technology from Renishaw, such as the PH20 and REVO.</p> </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://americanmachinist.com/renishaw-s-productive-process-pyramid" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://americanmachinist.com/renishaw-s-productive-process-pyramid#comments Fri, 17 May 2013 17:15:00 +0000 14462 at http://americanmachinist.com Leveraging Technology for Higher Returns http://americanmachinist.com/leveraging-technology-higher-returns <div class="node-body event-body">Regional seminar presents methods for reducing laser-cutting costs and boosting press brake productivity. </div> <h3 class="location-locations-header">Location</h3> <div class="location-locations-wrapper"> <div class="location vcard"> <div class="adr"> <span class="fn">Hilton Garden Inn</span> <div class="street-address"> 5890 South Howell Ave </div> <span class="locality">Milwaukee</span>, <span class="region">WI</span> <span class="postal-code">53207</span> <div class="country-name">United States</div> </div> <div class="map-link"> <div class="location map-link">See map: <a href="http://maps.google.com?q=5890+South+Howell+Ave%2C+Milwaukee%2C+WI%2C+53207%2C+us">Google Maps</a></div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field-desc"> <p> A free, one-day seminar with experts from Cincinnati Incorporated, Wilson Tool, Sigmatek and National Machine Tool Financing.

The new HyperCut machining technologies is at the core of performance improvements, and can achieve a surface finish down to 3&mu;mRz (15&mu;inRa) in just 3 Pass Machining in standard tool steels. The new machine platform also introduces the next generation of advanced machine controls, called Hyper-i, which utilizes a streamlined user friendly interface that offers tablet/smartphone-like functionality.</p> <p> <strong>Get Rid of the Rust &mdash; </strong>This presentation will demonstrate how rust affects steel parts left in your wire EDM water dielectric for long periods of time and new technology from Makino that eliminates this problem.</p> <p> <strong>High Speed Rib Machining &mdash; </strong>Rib machining has always presented a challenge to mold building, whether by EDM or direct milling. Learn how new EDM technologies can overcome the traditional limitations of long cycle time and multiple electrode requirements that still often necessitate hand polishing. See firsthand how new processes can achieve efficient machining results that produce consistent high-level surface finishes using only (1) electrode. This new technology represents a leap forward in mold building processing that will significantly reduce manufacturing costs through reductions of fewer machined electrodes and reduced or eliminated hand finishing operations.</p> <p> <strong>Micromachining and Metrology &mdash; </strong>This presentation session will provide a preview of the ultra precision micro machining platforms that Makino offers to enable the automatic machining of small scale features requiring submicron levels of accuracy and positional placement. Of equal importance, the discussion will highlight case studies of various tooling challenges including the necessary metrology technologies to support the development and confirmation of the machining process.</p> <p> <strong>Productivity per Square Foot: The Makino N2 &mdash; </strong>Makino&#39;s new N2 platform is a high-productivity solution contained in a small package that consumes less than 26 square feet of floor space (includes coolant tank and standard chip management). Its 5-axis N2-5XA configuration pushes this productivity even further with five-sided part accessibility and opportunities to consolidate operations.<br /> The N2 platform provides a sizable work zone for its compact design, which features an overall footprint of 45.3 inches wide by 83.7 inches long by 84.6 inches high (1,150 mm by 2,125 mm by 2,150 mm). Despite the weight reduction resulting from this design, these machines maintain a highly rigid structure for enhanced accuracy and reliability.</p> <p> <strong>Five-Axis Machining: Focusing on Tool Life and Productivity &mdash; </strong>Makino Tooling Application Engineer will discuss a new Machining Method utilizing 5 axis continuous motion that has the benefit of: Shorter Machining Times for Roughing operations, more accurate Roughing operations with less Semi-finishing operations, increased tool life with Cam managed Sedge monitoring features. This process will provide an overall shorter machining time with a reduced tooling cost.</p> <p> <strong>D800Z: Large Five Axis Machining &mdash; </strong>Large part, five axis machining presents numerous challenges due to the size, weight and range of features found on large components. Investigate how the new Makino D800 Z five &ndash; axis machine provides new levels of sustained dynamic accuracy achieved through technologies which minimize thermal influences and maximize volumetric accuracy. Understand key mechanical design elements that contribute to high performance, high output five-axis machining and important control features (i.e. SGI.4, VP &amp; IAC Control) and five axis functions (i.e. TCP, TWP &amp; 3D Cutter Compensation) that make productivity a reality.</p> <p> <strong>EDM Hole Machining: Oil versus Water</strong> <strong>&mdash; &nbsp;</strong>Learn about the differences &ndash; the advantages and disadvantages of EDM drilling in oil dielectric and water. In most machining applications, cycle time, accuracy and surface finish are the main criteria in determining the best solution. In the case of EDM drilling, the integrity of the material also comes into play. We&#39;ll look at each of these requirements - how they compare between a water-based machine and an oil-based machine and analyze the benefits of each.</p> <p> <strong>MPmax &mdash; </strong>MPmax provides software functions to visualize the factory and information from the machines.

Local-area students and their parents will be invited to tour Mazak&rsquo;s Production-On-Demand manufacturing plant to get an up close look at advanced manufacturing equipment in a real-world scenario. But most importantly, they will learn that work in today&rsquo;s manufacturing environment is clean, sophisticated, high-tech and lucrative.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> For manufacturers, the event will offer technical seminars and industry specific metalworking demonstrations together with a wide array of new machine models. Technical seminars will encompass a wide variety of manufacturing topics and practical solutions presented by industry experts, key Mazak Value Inspired Partner (VIP) companies and other manufacturing suppliers. Intelligence Zones will allow small groups of 10 attendees to receive very specific knowledge on wide ranging topics.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Attendees will learn how to properly implement the latest technologies and processes, as well as how to improve part quality, shorten lead times, reduce operational costs and achieve the lowest cost of ownership. Plus, the event will feature real-time production data monitoring demonstrations inside Mazak&rsquo;s manufacturing plant using the MTConnect protocol. The focus will be on how companies can improve machine utilization using machine tool monitoring software to measure real-time factory performance.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Furthermore, attendees will experience Mazak&rsquo;s continued investment in and improvement of its three core business structures &ndash; the North American Manufacturing Plant, National Technology Center and Center for Multi-Tasking and Manufacturing Excellence and the North American Parts Center &ndash; that are the foundation of its Kentucky campus.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Currently, Mazak is in the process of expanding its manufacturing plant by adding 200,000 square feet of floor space to the Mazak campus. When the expansion is complete in early 2014, the company will be able to produce between 170 and 200 machine tool units per month, depending on product mix.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> As a special focus, Mazak will invite event attendees to see some of the new, highly advanced machines that will be key to the plant expansion and will further enhance the company&rsquo;s Production-On-Demand approach to building machine tools. These highly automated Multi-Tasking machines will provide insight into new concepts for manufacturing parts while increasing the efficiency of Mazak&rsquo;s manufacturing facilities.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Mazak&rsquo;s Production-On-Demand is a lean manufacturing approach that gives the company extreme production flexibility to quickly address current market trends while still producing high volumes of machines in a broad product mix. Production-On-Demand also allows Mazak to shorten its production lead times and minimize inventory levels, ensuring that each machine coming off the line incorporates the latest, most innovative technology. &nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Inside the 100,000-square-foot National Technology Center and Center for Multi-Tasking and Manufacturing Excellence, attendees will experience highly advanced machine tools and automation systems in action. With the combination of machines in the National Technology Center and new machines in the Mazak manufacturing plant, customers can see as many as 40 new machine tool models. Mazak will have these machines categorized by industry application, including aerospace, agriculture, construction, energy, medical and transportation. In particular, these machines will showcase process demonstrations that include Mazak&rsquo;s 5 levels of Multi-Tasking, various approaches to 5-axis machining, high-speed and high-torque machining as well as unattended automation and systems.&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Throughout the DISCOVER 2013 event, the company will conduct presentations on its new 3-4-5 &quot;The Next Level of Productivity&quot; manufacturing solution, which is the industry&rsquo;s most comprehensive grouping of manufacturing resources. It provides everything manufacturers need to develop a highly optimized manufacturing system, from &ldquo;3 Levels of Control&rdquo; that offer advanced operator support to &ldquo;4 Levels of Automation&rdquo; that focus on better equipment utilization to &ldquo;5 Levels of Multi-Tasking&rdquo; that improve throughput by using fewer machines to complete machining operations.&nbsp; </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://americanmachinist.com/mazak-corps-discover-2013" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://americanmachinist.com/mazak-corps-discover-2013#comments Fri, 28 Jun 2013 19:18:00 +0000 15362 at http://americanmachinist.com Optimizing the Quoting Process for Speed, Consistency and Accuracy http://americanmachinist.com/optimizing-quoting-process-speed-consistency-and-accuracy <div class="node-body event-body"><p>Do you find it challenging to quickly and accurately respond to requests for quotes (RFQs)?

The presentation will offer workshop attendees an overview of the approach taken to develop the hydraulics and control systems for an innovative automated drilling rig machine. Prior efforts had started without system-level models being developed, critical customer requirements were not captured well, and machine performance could not be simulated or visualized. While it was understood that a systems engineering approach was critical to ensuring that the requirements could be met, a traditional, document-based approach to systems engineering was not going to be useful or accepted by the team. By using a Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) approach and having a multi-disciplinary team collaborating with a focus on addressing the system-level requirements, the team succeeded in maturing the systems under their design control.<br /> <br /> CIMdata&rsquo;s Systems Engineering workshop is a must-attend event for industrial organizations and solution providers involved with systems engineering.
