Making tool management simple – Is it possible?
If producing machined parts for your manufacturing tools is a complex process, should the system that is supposed to make it more efficient be a “necessary evil”? Considering the cost of stopping production because a part is missing from the tool magazine, the necessity of a good tool management system seems obvious, but it does not have to be complicated as it should be designed to make your processes more efficient and safer. Here is how.
Industry 4.0: Challenges and perspectives for the factory of the future and intelligent machining

CAD/CAM: Why merge your design and manufacturing processes?
The divide between design and manufacturing processes is the norm in companies most of the time. And if the reasons are diverse, they seem less and less legitimate. Indeed, some companies have already taken the step of managing these two stages together and merging the associated software. As such, they put forward the undeniable benefits in terms of competitive advantage, reliability, timesaving, and productivity.
In the era of Industry 4.0, is it still relevant to question the advantages of a single CAD/CAM solution? To understand the stakes and decide to take the plunge, follow us!

In a technological context of process automation, where AI allows for extra confidence in speed and reliability, customers feel justified in demanding impeccable results within a short timeframe. Two significant – and closely related – objectives are emerging: to produce quickly and satisfactorily.
Everything you need to know about programming complex parts
In CAD/CAM, and particularly in machining, the manufacturing of parts with complex shapes must comply with the functional specifications expressed by the designer or the creator. The geometric model built in CAD is a digital reference model that must be reproduced as accurately as possible during the manufacturing phase.
