Strong NC programming and CAD integration key to selection
PLANO, Texas, Aug. 14 -- UGS, a leading global supplier of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, announced today that Radkersburger Metallwarenfabrik, an Austrian-based die manufacturer, has selected NX(TM) CAM Express software for manufacturing its deep drawing dies.
Radkersburger Metallwarenfabrik is currently a Solid Edge® customer and today's announcement helps the company integrate CAD geometry with milling operations. Solid Edge is UGS' industry-leading, 3D computer-aided design (CAD) solution and the core CAD component of the UGS Velocity Series(TM) portfolio, the industry's first comprehensive, preconfigured portfolio of digital product design, analysis, manufacturing and data management software for the PLM mid-market. Just announced in June, NX CAM Express, a full function numerical control (NC) programming application, is the latest edition to the Velocity Series.
"At the moment, our contract production in the area of sheet metal forming is developing very well, but we are under immense pressure to reduce our costs in this highly competitive market," said Gregor Merlini, assistant to the management at Radkersburger Metallwarenfabrik. "We selected NX CAM Express in order to work more efficiently and cost-effectively and be less dependent upon ancillary industries."
"It was important for the company to have a local partner who competently advises, conducts training, implements the software -- including the generation and optimization of the post processors -- and provides continuous support," said Johann Mathais, manager of ACAM Systemautomation GmbH. "This local support along with the strength of NX CAM Express being based on the longstanding, proven technology of NX CAM, gave Radkersburger the necessary trust to invest in this new product."
"NX CAM Express is a great fit for Radkersburger Metallwarenfabrik's needs," said Vynce Paradise, director, NX CAM. "As a supplier of finished and semi-manufactured goods, Radkersburger will realize productivity and time-to- market efficiencies from NX CAM Express' in-depth CAM capabilities for programming the latest and most advanced machine tools. In addition, the product is easy to deploy and easy to use, ensuring a quick implementation."
Regardless of how complex or sensitive a technical project may be -- over more than five decades, Radkersburger Metallwarenfabrik has acquired the experience and technological skills required for the most demanding projects. The company's core competencies range from metal forming, such as metal spinning, deep drawing and hydro-mechanical deep drawing, to additional work such as turning, milling, welding, grinding and polishing and the composition of entire structural components and assemblies.
