MachineWorks New Sampling Technology at Moulding Expo

Moulding Expo taking place 5th to the 8th of May in Stuttgart, Germany

SHEFFIELD, UK, April 15, 2015 - MachineWorks Ltd, the leading software for CNC Simulation and Verification, will be demonstrating an innovative Sample Technology at Moulding Expo in Hall 4 Stand A43 from the 5th to the 8th of May in Stuttgart, Germany.Image removed by sender.


The new feature will drastically improve the quality of the graphics as well as offering outstanding performance and constant memory footprint throughout the simulation.

Taking advantage of our patented technology, the MachineWorks team has developed this advanced sampling engine with ray trace rendering that retains the details of stocks even when zoomed in. The result is an enhanced image containing surface details that would normally be lost when using a sampling technology.

This improved technology offers CNC controller manufacturers an ideal software solution for advanced 3D animation as the memory usage is not dependent on the number of cuts in the toolpath but on the grid resolution representing the stock. The customer can display true solid simulation and handle true swept volume surfaces for stock sampling with an accurate graphic representation.

The new version of the sampling engine will be available for customers in the upcoming MachineWorks release but a sneaky demo can be seen during Moulding Expo at 4A43.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
