Program Robots Right the First Time with 3D Robot Programmer
The use of robotics in manufacturing has grown, however, because robot programming is not part of the design phase, manufacturing personnel must often scramble to implement fixes and workarounds on the shop floor, which leads to potential conflicts. With Robot Programmer, users can deliver high-quality, collision-free programs in the native robot language with minimal intervention on the shop floor. In the virtual world, programmers and designers can work together to create the most productive tooling operations and robot cycle times. Programming can move ahead independently without interrupting the current production schedule, and reducing edits in the floor.
Virtual Factory Automation with DELMIA and SOLIDWORKS
Within DELMIA the combination of point cloud and 3D SOLIDWORKS data was combined to quickly construct a Virtual Twin of an existing factory. From that Virtual Twin a reconfiguration of the shop floor layout was done to analyze movement of equipment to accommodate automation. Finally a detailed factory flow analysis was done to evaluate multiple what-if scenarios enabling the customer to make business decisions with confidence.
Precision Machined Parts Delivered Faster and at Less Cost
Manufacturing companies today need to stay ahead of their competition by delivering machined parts faster while maintaining a competitive price. Redundant, repetitive programming, incomplete simulations, time-intensive production, and the uncertainty of whether or not the shop floor is working with the most up-to-date data only make meeting this objective more difficult.
Smart manufacturers can overcome these challenges and close the gap between programming and production with integrated tools deployed from a centralized manufacturing platform. Learn how you can minimize risk of product recalls and liabilities; gain efficiencies through a single, real-time data repository; reduce new product time to market; manage change, costs and delays with end-to-end traceability; and optimize global production at a lower cost.
Automate Machining with SOLIDWORKS and DELMIA
Complex CNC machines are more affordable today than they have ever been and as a result, are being adopted by mainstream manufacturers faster than ever. Due to this automation revolution, the need to program and simulate NC programs virtually is critical to success. See how easy it is to use SOLIDWORKS and DELMIA to improve your NC programming process.
Overcoming 8 Operational Challenges with Lean Team Player
Meetings are a reality in nearly every work environment, but traditional approaches are not truly collaborative, resulting in missed opportunities for problem-solving and often lead to additional operational problems.
When you bring your product development teams together, make sure you are optimizing this time with Lean Team Player, a role in the 3DEXPERIENCE Works portfolio that enables you to digitize Lean Practices to capture, monitor, and track meetings across organizations or departments. When everyone has access to the same information, it is easier to understand the vision and turn it into action.
