Checkit B4

FIRST STEP® ... the proof of concept

FIRST STEP creates the basis for your success providing the exact answers to essential questions:
Which machine, which workpiece setup, which tools?
Miscalculations, material- and time waste can be avoided in the run-up.

ADVANTAGES FOR THE PRODUCTION MANAGER

Workpieces can be checked for feasibility at an early stage.
• The necessary clamping situation and the tools can be assembled fast and simply.
• Because of the unique machine check the machining process can be simulated without the previous programming of the tool path.
• The tool can easily be traced along the surface by hand. Consequently potential collisions or axis limits can be detected.
• Due to the intuitive user interface CAD/CAM knowledge is unnecessary.

ADVANTAGES FOR THE CAM USER

Nowadays we spend a lot of time with the specifying and documenting of the workpiece- and tool setup. Using FIRST STEP a large part of this work can be done previously by the work preparation department and then further be used by the CAM engineers. But also during the programming it is a big help.

ADVANTAGES FOR THE MACHINE TOOL MANUFACTURER

The technical sales team has the possibility to deal with customer inquiries at an early time. They are able to check different workpiece- and tool setups themselves.
• The machine kinematic and also the special tools and additional machine components can be checked and visualized.

ADVANTAGES FOR THE TOOL AND CLAMPING DEVICE MANUFACTURER

Tools and clamping devices can be defined and virtually shown on the specific machines and workpieces of the customer.
