Dr. Hohn Chose ZW3D to Boost Design and Manufacture of Road Ranger Hardtops
Rm.508, No. 886, Tianhe North Rd.
Press release date: May 27, 2014
Guangzhou, China: ZW3D, a leading supplier of 3D CAD/CAM solutions for the MCAD industry, today announced that it has been selected by Dr. Höhn GmbH. Featured with the all-in-one CAD and CAM solution, ZW3D provides solutions from optimization of scanned point cloud to 5-axis CNC machining, enabling Dr. Höhn to speed up the whole manufacturing process and improve the productivity.
Dr. Höhn is a famous manufacturing company, producing covers and accessories for pick-ups. Founded in the 1960s, Dr. Höhn has established a powerful production-assembly line for ROAD RANGER® hardtops from product design, processing to assembling. Directly working with manufacturers such as Mitsubishi, Nissan, Volkswagen, Isuzu and Toyota, etc., Dr. Höhn has earned a great reputation for its quality.
The production of a hardtop goes through four stages: Laminating, Grinding Cutting, Painting and Installation. Engineers will scan the back of the pick-up and model the covers according to the point cloud data. After the 3D modeling, they will prepare the tool path on CAM module and drive the Robot for machining. The company urgently demands an integrated CAD/CAM solution which can provide a packaged CAM/CAD system to improve the overall productivity and efficiency.
ZW3D delivers a whole package of solutions covering reverse engineering, flexible 3D modeling, 5-axis robot milling and accurate tool paths, etc., helping Dr. Höhn to boost productivity and shorten the lead time.
With the integrated CAD/CAM program, ZW3D improves the corporation between cross functional teams in Dr. Höhn, like design and machining departments, eliminating data loss and misplacement. Featuring the unique Solid-Surface Hybrid Modeling technology, ZW3D also assists Dr. Höhn to perform CNC machining for the discontinuous face directly without surface repairing ahead, which can greatly save time of product processing.
“The integrated CAD/CAM system of ZW3D can satisfy all our requirements in design and processing. It means greater flexibility, shorter lead time, as well as less training time for employees,” commented Kamil Macidlowski, Manager of Dr. Höhn.
The Polish ZW3D distributor provides timely support to keep Dr. Höhn up-to-date with the hybrid modeling technology and prepares CL code to drive robots and 5-Axis CNC machines. As ZW3D is optimized for the ease of use, designers and CNC programmers can quickly master and apply it in actual production work.
