" Cutting edge automation "
Sandvik Coromant (http://www.sandvik.coromant.com) has for the last 3 decades heavily depended on automated design and manufacturing of their products - cutting tools for the manufacturing industry. By using CAD/CAM system APIs, engineers have been developing programs that create 3D models, drawings and NC programs of products tailored to customer demands.
Developing these programs in general purpose programming languages has been time consuming and error prone due to the fact that the engineers are not very accustomed to programming in general, but experts in product variant configuration.
Using Eclipse Xtext we have created an adapted domain specific programming language and tooling for our mass customization process, relieving the engineers from low level programming tasks, making it possible to fully focus on solving the problems of the mass customization domain.
In this presentation we will demonstrate two of our languages, a 3D modeling language and a CAM language, in action. Focus will be on live demonstration in NX, where we will show how 3D models and NC programs are automatically created with our programming languages. We will focus most on the CAM aspects of automation, specially on the integration between CAD/CAM.
