Machinist Cooperative has always stayed on the cutting edge of technology. We continue to be proactive in implementing the necessary tools to stay ahead of our competition.
With CAD/CAM software we are able to create a fully dimensioned 2D drawing from a solid model resulting in shorter lead times. The strength in solids and feature recognition through CAD/CAM is incredibly fast. Design changes, whether at our end or yours, are easily accommodated.
Solidworks and FeatureCAM dramatically reduce our turnaround time and overall cost of manufacturing a component. FeatureCAM gives us the ability to program from a variety of different software applications; this streamlines the relationship between our customers and us. Below is a list of programs that Machinist Group is compatible with:
|DWG||STEP||PAR (Solid Edge®)|
|IPT (Autodesk Inventor®)||VRML||IDF|
|CADKEY®||IAM (Autodesk Inventor®)||VDA-FS|
The key benefits of FeatureCAM are speed of NC programming, the ability to directly load the solid model, and extract feature information from it. From conception to finished part, manufacturing time reduced tremendously.
