Chicago – Make plans to attend the IMTS 2014 Conferences to learn about Using Simulation Software to Achieve True "Lights-Out" Machining.
DATE: Monday, September 8 from 3:15 PM - 4:10 PM ROOM: W-192C
SPEAKER: Gene Granata, Technical Support Manager, CGTech
This presentation will demonstrate how lights-out machining--of even the first part--can be a reality. Using case-study examples, the audience will learn how other manufacturers have overcome some of the challenges to achieving completely unattended CNC machining. Specific features of the NC verification, simulation, and optimization software that are required to establish total confidence in the offline prove-out process will be discussed.
- Many manufacturers are looking to automation to increase efficiency without adding to labor costs.
- Some of the efficiency gains that automation offers are lost in the manual prove-out process.
- By taking the prove-out process offline, using g-code driven NC verification, simulation and optimization software, manufactures can gain the confidence that the first part will be good every time.
The educational and informative conferences run Sept. 8-11, 2014 in the West Building, Level 1. To register for this or any session, visit www.imts.com/education/imtsconference.html.
