Intelligent Machining Automation

With VX Intelligent Machining Automation, users establish their own rules for machining a part, and once the tool paths are developed and saved for a part, the automation system can use these tool paths and rules as a knowledge base for automating development of machining for a variety of other parts. This reduces the time required for programming new parts from a matter of days to a matter of minutes.

This reduces the time required for programming new parts from a matter of days to a matter of minutes. VX captures and uses the knowledge and logic of an experienced machinist for automatically generating machining. In addition to reducing bottlenecks, this helps manufacturers cope with difficulties in recruiting and retaining skilled machinists.

The value of this automation is that it can automate much of a shop's programming so that it's tailored to the shop's specific needs and unique situation.
