Smiths Machine Advances Programing Capabilities

Smiths Machine recently purchased multiple seats of Siemens NX 8.5. After multiple demonstrations at the 2012 IMTS show, the Engineering team at Smiths Machine decided that NX was the right fit for the company’s needs.

NX offers advanced programming capabilities. This is ideal for the multi axis machining required by many of our demanding projects. The feature-based machining programming also reduces programming time by as much as 90 percent. Additionally, the NX CAM has a tightly integrated post processing system. The multiple levels of program validation include G code-driven simulations, eliminating the need to separate simulation packages.

Engineering Manager, Gerhard Hetzler said, “Our team is excited about the new software. With our focus being on complex, precision parts, it only makes sense that we use a CAM software designed specifically for the efficiently processing demanding jobs.”
