Precision Machine and Auto Components Ltd (PMAC)

Edgecam Scores Heavy Duty Hat-Trick. The market-leading Edgecam software provides three distinct CAM advantages for a Chennai-based heavy duty component manufacturer. "Edgecam’s offline programming is particularly important to us, as it gives faster throughput time, meaning we have faster delivery times to our customers," says Mr Karthik. Many companies undertake line by line programming on the machine, wasting several hours of what could otherwise be useful production time, resulting in higher cycle times. Says Mr Karthik: "Tool selection is an extremely important task, and Edgecam ensures we always have the right tool for the job. It avoids us buying unwanted tools which will not be utilised. It means we will only purchase tools which are going to be used." As a recent example, PMAC supplied a component to a customer in the forging industry which required around 35% of the material to be scooped out. With Edgecam we could completely visualise how the tool was going to work on the 4 to 5 hour cycle time, and ensure it was the right one for the job. Overall, it saved us a lot of setting up time and meant we had a relatively quick turnaround for our customer. "Once you have tasted Edgecam you will definitely feel it is worth it."

Ariane Spacecraft

Edgecam Helps Ariane Spacecraft on Their Way. Just under 600 seconds are all it takes for special propulsive engines on board the renowned European space launcher Ariane, to do their job. And a number of components in those engines are manufactured through Edgecam CNC programs. "The fact that we’re able to design the filtration unit and the fixturing in Edgecam Part Modeler around the actual finished part model of the thruster component itself, made it much easier to visualise and to program everything in one go". He says many of the other programming software packages he has used over the years before discovering Edgecam, do not have the option of working so closely with the original modeling software.

Tex Tech Industry

The market-leading Edgecam CNC machining software is helping an innovative Coimbatore company play a vital role in keeping the Indian textile industry spinning. Tex Tech Industries manufactures critical spare parts for cotton combing machines and opted for Edgecam to drive its eight vertical machining centres and two turning centres. Mr Malligarjunan says there were 3 main reasons they selected Edgecam over other CAM systems they looked at: Its ease of use, and the custom programming which means that specific elements within Edgecam can be tailored to meet individual requirements. This includes post processors and manufacturing solutions. The "excellent" support service provided by Kriatec. The system cost less than the competitors Tex Tech were considering.

Naga Precision Tooling System

Having spent many hours and many sleepless nights creating manual CNC programs and proving out components, a Chennai-based precision tooling manufacturer saw productivity increase by up to 40%, and rejections drop by 95% after switching to offline programming with Edgecam. Managing Director Mr N. S. Balaguru, who has more than 20 years experience in tooling development, says before implementing the market-leading Edgecam CAM software, their programmers had to manually enter CNC programs into their cutting machines, which was both time consuming and meant the machines were not available for production runs while programming was being carried out. In order to meet customer’s needs for quicker delivery and quality precision products, Naga brought in Edgecam to handle the design and manufacture of their tool holders and cutting tools, and it now forms a vital part of their infrastructure, which includes two turning centres, a 4-axis VMC, air electronic gauge for AT3 class taper, and a dynamic balancing machine.

Karpagam University

Karpagam University has two CNC machines - one for milling and one for turning - and Edgecam drives them both. Dean of Engineering & Technology Dr G. Karuppasami says: "We have used Edgecam for two years and feel it’s one of the best CAM softwares available. It is an all-in-one solution with modules for manual part programming, automatic part programming and simulation." Edgecam really contributes to their knowledge, so finding a placement at the end of their four-year course is going to be easy for them, as they have the practical knowledge of using the software that companies require, as well as academic qualifications.
