Innovative machining strategies for optimizing quality and reducing costs in the Canadian manufacturing sector.
Virtual Machining Process Technology (VMPT) is highly relevant for the Canadian manufacturing industry remaining competitive on the global market. Industry needs integrated machining operation modelling and simulation in a virtual environment in order to design and optimize the complete manufacturing cycle.
The rapid development, prototyping, testing and deployment of machining strategies is required in order to reduce costs and achieve the highest quality. A key tool in achieving this goal is the modelling of product development and manufacturing in a digital environment. The modelling employs a science-based approach in which the complete machining process can be simulated and optimized before resorting to costly and time-consuming physical trials on the shop floor.
