Siemens to Offer NX Software through Continuous Release Method
This delivery model will give Siemens’ customers faster access to enhancements and quality improvements.
Siemens PLM Software will begin delivering its NX software products using a continuous release methodology starting January 2019. This delivery model is intended to give customers faster access to enhancements and quality improvements while reducing the efforts needed to effectively deploy the software.
The software is built on a common modern software architecture, developed with a business focus on delivering functionality while protecting customer data. The new approach will enable Siemens’ customers to receive functional enhancements faster in order to help boost productivity, to have a consistent schedule for updates, and to be more responsive to new ideas and trends. The software will also enable customers to reduce deployment costs, to receive faster responses from NX development, and to benefit from full NX/Simcenter 3D integration and interoperability.
The shift from vertical to horizontal machining was even more expensive than this shop anticipated. It was also more valuable. Most of the shop’s machining centers are HMCs now—here’s why.
This CNC capability is helping make machine tools move far faster, and more accurately, than ever before. Here's how it works.
Finally there is an alternative to ballnose endmills for finishing 3D parts. The combination of finishing tools shaped to provide more cutting surface and a CAM system with the ability to apply them on a five-axis machining center can dramatically reduce finishing cycle times while delivering better surface finishes.
