We are hosting a presentation at PMTS discussing some of the trends in the precision machined parts industry and how both hardware and software selection can help shops better deal with the demands they are facing. The presentation will be conducted in the Technical Theatre at PMTS on Thursday, April 21, at 11 a.m.
 
The precision parts industry is changing rapidly. The triple paradigm of smaller lot sizes, increased part complexity and compressed lead times are forcing part manufacturers to look closely at their setup times and thus their CNC programming methodologies. Our presentation will discuss the latest trends in CAD/CAM for small parts manufacture across a variety of CNC platforms including Swiss, fixed headstock turn-mill and bar fed milling.
 
PartMaker is a knowledge-based machining system, allowing it to provide a substantial gain in programming efficiency by remembering the tools, material and process information necessary to machine individual part features. It thus relieves the user from re-entering the same features’ information for subsequent parts. It also improves productivity by placing the emphasis on tool management functions.
