A precision engineering subcontractor servicing a large number of diverse industries uses a combination of unique workholding and Edgecam software to protect its margins as customers demand price cuts, and material and consumable costs rise.
Investing the time to learn how to use the very latest software technology to its full potential, is essential for manufacturers to stay efficient and profitable, according to an engineering subcontractor specialising in complex, unusual components. Derby-based Promach 3D discovered they were missing out on 22 features of Edgecam during a typical scenario of milling just one part.
Kirklees College, in Yorkshire, recently started its second term after installing 35 seats of VISI CAD/CAM software to ensure apprentices are fully trained on 5-axis machining – which lecturers say is absolutely vital to the future of manufacturing in the area.
An engineering subcontractor says the revolutionary waveform roughing strategy in Edgecam CNC software is pushing the boundaries of traditional milling. Chris Bentley, Managing Director of Mach One Engineering, says: “It’s exciting when new technology comes along that changes things so much for the better.
