ModuleWorks, Sandvik Machining Solutions Collaborate on CNC Program

“Around half of the parts produced today are not programmed using CAD/CAM software but are instead programmed on the shop floor, and we aim to simplify this process,” says ModuleWorks.

ModuleWorks and Sandvik Machining Solutions have announced their collaboration on Prism, a touch-based programming technology that enables users to efficiently create and simulate CNC programs.

Applied Manufacturing Technologies, a division of Sandvik Machining Solutions, is developing the collaborative application. The application is said to combine the manufacturing knowhow of Sandvik Machining Solutions with the latest ModuleWorks toolpath generation and simulation technology to increase productivity and machine uptime.

“Around half of the parts produced today are not programmed using CAD/CAM software but are instead programmed on the shop floor, and we aim to simplify this process,” says Yavuz Murtezaoglu, managing director of ModuleWorks.

“Working together with ModuleWorks enables us to combine this digital knowledge-base with the latest toolpath algorithms and simulation software to develop an integrated solution that modernizes the machining process,” says Anders Lindh, president of Applied Manufacturing Technologies at Sandvik Machining Solutions.
