Apriso 9.7 is now available from Dassault Systèmes. According to the company, the application suite enhances integration between the virtual and real worlds of manufacturing operations.
Delcam CRISPIN will demonstrate the potential of its ShoeMaker design software in the mass customisation of footwear by displaying hybrid shoes at the SIMAC exhibition to be held in Milan from 25–27 February. The hybrid shoes feature a leather upper, with the sole and heel produced by 3D printing, bringing together traditional and new methods of shoemaking in their creation.
The latest developments in Delcam’s range of CAM programming software will be demonstrated at the Pacific Design & Manufacturing exhibition to be held in Anaheim, California, from 10–12 February. The main highlights will be the 2015 R2 releases of the FeatureCAM feature-based CAM software and of the PowerMILL software for the programming of high-speed and five-axis machining.
According to CLPA, the success of the ‘internet of things’ depends on information being able to flow seamlessly around a manufacturing process and beyond, which is helped by CC-Link IE.
Delcam has released its 2015 R2 release of its FeatureCAM feature-based CAM software incorporates a milling calculator to help users obtain the maximum benefit from the Vortex high-efficiency area-clearance strategy
A new ‘putty’ tool in the 2015 release of Delcam’s ArtCAM Pro CAD/CAM software for artistic applications will be demonstrated at the World Money Fair, which to be held in Berlin from 30 January to 1 February.
Amplicon has added three new feature-packed models to its range of Digi AnywhereUSB devices. The AnywhereUSB is a network-attached USB hub that allows USB devices to connect to a PC by using existing TCP/IP network infrastructure.
Delcam will demonstrate the 2015 version of its OrthoMODEL software for the design of custom orthotic insoles at the BAPO conference to be held at the Point in Manchester from 20–22 March.

Apriso’s Smart-Pull Manufacturing solution combines the power of enterprise manufacturing intelligence with business process management and Apriso’s platform for manufacturing operations management.
Traditional methods of remote monitoring and control using RTUs and SCADA systems are well entrenched in the water industry. But there is a wave of new technologies available now that have the potential to dramatically change the way we think and act in our endeavours to optimise our scarce water resources.
In this paper the question will be discussed where and when the expense of a CoSimulation with two established simulation tools such as 1) Matlab/Simulink and 2) FLUX is worthwhile. A linear actuator is used as an example, which is simplified and abstracted from a real part due to confidentiality reasons.
‘Innovation is everywhere. You can’t go an entire commercial break during the World Cup or The State of the Union Address without hearing the word innovation at least once or twice.’
ow do you drive innovation? Do you lead with intuition shaped by your experiences? Or do you take a more scientific approach, relying upon strategic plans, business models and market studies? Michael Raynor of Deloitte Consulting says: ‘Judgement is a significant part of the equation, but the facts define the parameters of the choices you face. Sure, the numbers matter, but only at the margin.’
This white paper from Omniflex explores the requirements of monitoring and logging as required for compliance with ABGR and other ratings in Australia, and the real benefits that can be achieved by using remote monitoring and control to ensure compliance and to optimise the operation of buildings. The use of remote monitoring services as a solution for smaller buildings without a building management system is explored.
As with standard desktops and laptops, protection from viruses, malicious users and general malware is of paramount importance for embedded devices. Additionally, you many need to preserve the runtime images of embedded systems by protecting them against write operations; because Windows Embedded Standard 7 is based on Windows 7, depending on your configuration, many of the same security vulnerabilities will apply.
Modern CAE software allows engineers to investigate a multitude of design variations that could not possibly be considered using conventional physical prototypes. This paper first illustrates parametric methods for automatically creating virtual prototypes of electromechanical actuators using the AMPERES and MAGNETO programs from Integrated Engineering Software. It also refers to a specific case study that shows how the Tecplot Chorus program can assist in determining optimal design ...
This paper from Integrated Engineering Software presents an overview of the focusing properties of magnetic quadrupoles and shows how beam spot size can be determined using arc segment emitters. It also shows how parametric variation of the excitation current can be used to determine the optimum level for minimum spot size at points along the beam axis.
