Calculating Machine Times siemens NX

The synchronization manager shows you the time each machine event begins in the channel list. Generally, the start time of the next event is the end time of the previous event, with the exception of synchronization events. The system does not automatically recalculate machine times when you make program changes, …

Defining Lathe Spindles and Lathe Work Planes siemens NX

You define a lathe spindle in the Machine Tool Builder by classifying a kinematics component as _LATHE_SPINDLE. Every lathe spindle must contain one junction to define a lathe work plane. This is the plane where the tool tip moves during turning operations. Furthermore, the lathe work plane junction defines the …

Alternate methods using Knowledge Fusion siemens NX

Feature-based machining can be accomplished by different methods: Knowledge Fusion (KF) based Feature groups come first, then processes. Classification criteria is defined within the feature subtypes. Holemaking and Holemilling use multiple specialized feature template subtypes, such as SIMPLE_HOLE, that each contain machining knowledge, classification criteria, and so on, that are …

Optimization siemens NX

Optimization improves cutting efficiency by applying rules to the NC program. Optimization uses machining feature templates (explained in the section Machining Feature Templates) to give the NC programmer the most efficient operations to machine each feature and to optimize the order in which they are performed. Operations are optimized by …
