  • Robotic Machining Overview Output NX milling tool paths to robotic machines. Created with NX CAM 11.0.1 Details NX can simulate and output milling tool paths to robotic machines. Robotic machines are useful for milling, polishing, linishing, deburring, and laser, plasma, and water jet cutting. Robotics rules control the robot configurations and avoid singularities. Poses are defined as needed. Video This video demonstrates an NX 11.0.1 update for Robotic machining. You can select robots as machine tools and output NX milling tool paths to robotic machines. Robotics rules control the robot configurations and avoid singularities. Credits: Siemens PLM Community #HSSESsg
  • Unleash your innovation with the next generation of design, simulation, and manufacturing solutions Building on its legacy of best-in-class customer deployment readiness and data preservation, NX 12 delivers the next generation of design, simulation and manufacturing solutions that enable companies to realize the value of the digital twin in the end-to-end process. Unleash your innovation with the only open and integrated multidisciplinary platform. NX 12 Design NX 12 for Design builds on the breakthrough technology of previous releases to deliver a set of refined tools that will help you take innovation to the next level. NX 12 combines solutions for multidisciplinary, generative, and design for additive manufacturing with best-in-class data preservation and deployment readiness, making NX the design tool of choice Multidisciplinary Design NX 12, closely integrated with Mentor Graphics, provides a direct connection between the design of electrical and mechanical systems. It’s no secret that products today are increasingly complex with many, if not most, reliant on integrated electronics. It is critical that designers of both systems collaborate throughout the development process in order to prevent conflicts and ensure alignment between each system prior to design completion. An efficient ECAD-MCAD co-design process enables you to eliminate costly electromechanical issues during new product development by giving a holistic view. Generative Design NX 12 combines tools for design optimization, advanced geometry creation, freeform and parametric design with the ability to model mesh geometry. Compressed schedules often force engineers to choose the first feasible design option. By mimicking nature’s evolutionary approach, generative design empowers you to identify the best design sooner while reducing the number of iterations needed, so you can stay ahead of the competition. Generative design in NX combines tools for topology optimization, advanced geometry creation, free-form shapes, parametric design, and facet or mesh modeling. Design for Additive Manufacturing NX 12 delivers new approaches to design for additive manufacturing including the ability to add lattice. Additive manufacturing is changing the way products are designed as well as how they are manufactured, by enabling optimized designs that were previously impossible or too expensive to make. NX is an integrated platform that meets the unique challenges of designing, optimizing, and building metal and plastic components using the latest additive manufacturing methods. Breakthrough technology delivers advanced methods for designing lightweight parts, while design validation checkers ensure manufacturability. #HSSESsg
  • In South East Asia, every manufacturing business is interested in what digital transformation could mean for his or her business. They believe digital transformation is key to future competitiveness, growth and agree that it will deliver better business results. Despite the fact that there is an awareness of the importance of digital transformation in South East Asia, this has not yet fully translated into reality. Majority of the companies in the region are still not fully on board, suggesting that the digital transformation race has really only just started in South East Asia. Tindaro Danze, VP and Division Lead for Digital Factory and Process Industries and Drives (Siemens Vietnam) : We are now in 4th Industrial revolution also known as Industrie 4.0. Every revolution in the past had brought upon the need for manufacturers to evolve on their offerings to adapt, survive and thrive. Digitalisation is a concept and every company will have their own vision of how they want to improve on their processes. Companies do not have to invest heavily at once to revolutionise their factory. The journey towards digitalisation varies based on factors such as type of company and industry, as well as country where is its based in. Manufacturers in South East Asia are faced with tougher competition and more challenges, whether they are local small and medium enterprises with small facilities or multi-national corporations with bigger facilities. Companies are looking to increase competitiveness in the market and become stronger players in the regional and global markets. Bisheng Liu , VP, Digital Factory Customer Services, ASEAN (Siemens Pte Ltd): Consumers are experiencing a higher demand for customised products to meet their specific needs. We have digitalisation concepts for companies across various industries. We propose effective technology improvements to help customers optimise their manufacturing processes, and digitalise their assets and machineries to enable analytics to better manage operations on a facility-wide level...
