Understanding Turning Manufacturing Parameter Concepts

Manufacturing parameters enable you to control how an NC sequence is generated. It is important to understand the different ways in which you can configure manufacturing parameters. Manufacturing Parameters Theory • Control NC sequences • Examples: – CUT_FEED = 100 – SPINDLE_SPEED = 500 – STEP_DEPTH = 2.5 – SCAN_TYPE = …

Creating and Using Turning NC Model Assemblies

You can create NC model assemblies that consist of a reference model and a workpiece. You can then use NC model assemblies by assembling them into manufacturing models. Creating NC Model Assemblies • Create Stock Options: – Workpiece Shape – Overall Dimensions – Offset Dimensions – Rotation Offsets Figure 1 – Create …

Creating Turning Manufacturing Models

Creating manufacturing models is the first step in the manufacturing process. Manufacturing models contain all manufacturing process information, such as: • Operations • Workcells • NC sequences • Reference models • Workpiece models Figure 1 – Using Template Manufacturing Models Manufacturing Models Manufacturing Models • Manufacturing model assembly file – “filename”.asm Figure 2 …

Creating a Molding

You can create the molding by filling the mold cavity through the sprue, runners, and gates. • Molding parts: – Contain a Molding feature. – Are fully-functional parts. – Maintain a parent/child relationship with mold model components and features. • There can be only one molding part in the model. Figure 1 – Mold …

Performing a Waterlines Check

The waterlines check helps to ensure that the waterlines are not too close to the external surfaces of the mold model. • To perform a waterlines check, you must specify: – Part – Waterline – Minimum Clearance • Color-coded results: – Magenta — Areas within minimum clearance. – Green — Areas outside minimum clearance. …

Splitting Mold Volumes

You can also split existing mold volumes to create volumes for sliders, lifters, inserts, and so on. • Split mold volumes using the Mold Volume split option. – Specify the volume to be split in the Search Tool. • The specified volume is split into one or two volumes. – Use a parting surface …
