Technology companies collaborate on PrimeTurning

Posted on 27 Aug 2021 and read 840 times
Technology companies collaborate on PrimeTurningA collaboration between CAM software component provider ModuleWorks, machining solutions and tool manufacturer Sandvik Coromant, and HCL Technologies — the developer of CAMWorks — has produced one of the first commercial implementations of the new ‘PrimeTurning’ solution in a CAM system.

Developed and patented by Sandvik Coromant, PrimeTurning increases machining efficiency by offering ‘turning in all directions’. The company worked with ModuleWorks to implement the PrimeTurning method as a software solution that can be integrated into any CAM system.

With support from ModuleWorks, HCL Technologies has now integrated this solution into CAMWorks to offer PrimeTurning as a native CAM strategy for improving efficiency and job-throughput in machine shops. PrimeTurning enables CAMWorks to achieve faster material-removal rates and higher productivity than conventional turning methods.

ModuleWorks also developed optimised G-code generation for PrimeTurning, with ‘versatile parameterisation for simplified CAM programming’. Integrated into CAMWorks, this delivers fast and flexible job set-up for the diverse range of ‘CoroTurn Prime turning tools’ to further increase productivity.

Julia Meyer-Hendricks, ModuleWorks’ senior key account manager, said: “This three-way collaboration is an excellent example of how Industry 4.0 encourages heterogenous partnerships for developing new, innovative manufacturing solutions. We look forward to a continued cooperation and further advances in the technology.”

Marko Stugbäck, Sandvik Coromant product manager, said: “ModuleWorks has the experts and resources that enabled us to turn the revolutionary PrimeTurning method into a software solution for the CAM market. It is great to see HCL implementing this technology in CAMWorks.

“These types of collaborative efforts are exactly what the industry needs to ensure continued ingenuity that enhances the productivity and quality of automated manufacturing.”
