This introductory workshop is part of the NERDIC Industry 4.0 Readiness Ecosystem program for small manufacturing enterprises in the defense supply chain.
Probing is an established best practice for maximizing the efficiency, quality, capability, and accuracy of machine tools. Standard routines built into modern CNC controls simplify the integration of probing cycles into machining operations and offline tools. These routines, combined with a CAD interface, make the simulation of measurement functions easy.
On machine probe solutions can help reduce set‑up times by up to 90% and improve your process control. This technology provides solutions for tool setting, broken tool detection, component set-up, in-cycle gauging and first-off component inspection, with automatic offset updates.
On machine probing can deliver significant cost savings, and improvements in quality, for all applications using machine tools throughout many industries.
This session will be recorded and available on-demand following the workshop.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
- Rhode Island manufacturing Executive Management
- General Managers, Manufacturing Operations, Production Managers, Manufacturing Engineers
Learn how machine tool probing can:
• Enable your machines to become smarter
• Reduce your overall scrap rate
• Improve cycle times
• Be a valuable, cost-saving technology for your business
- Nasir Mannan, CCAT
- Ian Raupach and Justin Lebel, Renishaw
A Technology Demonstration follows this workshop and is scheduled for Tuesday, July 13, 2021 @ 12:00 – 1:00 PM EST (1 hour)
NERDIC INDUSTRY 4.0 READINESS WORKSHOPS
The New England Regional Defense Industry Collaboration (NERDIC) will deliver a series of Industry 4.0 Readiness workshops and demonstrations to showcase how emerging technologies can be used to help optimize manufacturing processes in the New England defense manufacturing supply chain.
Each session explores a different technology, including generative design, additive manufacturing, and augmented reality. The overall aim is to help increase capability and competitiveness for the region’s defense manufacturers. For more information, please visit ccat.us/NERDIC.
