Smart Manufacturing

What Is Smart Manufacturing?

Smart manufacturing is a topic that is being talked about more and more. More business owners are exploring the gains of going down this route.

Industry 4.0

Industry 4.0

How can AAT3D help in Industry 4.0?
A high-end metrology software like CappsNC can perform all CMM tasks on a CNC machine.
CappsNC uses a separate PC that is connected to the CNC machine tool via Ethernet. This dedicated PC performs all the measurement calculations.

AAT Industry Flow 4.0

Enabling Smart Machining Through On-Machine Probing

Smart Machining & a smart factory can improve efficiency.
The major goal of any factory is making accurate parts at minimum cost.

Adaptive Manufacturing

Industry 4.0 Smart Factory - Adaptive Manufacturing with Metrology Feedback

There are many technologies and equipment that have improved the manufacturing industry. CNC measurement using on-machine probing software is in this category.

CappsNC is measurement software that will work on CNC machines. The CNC machine can produce the measurement data through on-machine probing.

Tetra Gage

In Process Measurement of Die & Mold for high precision manufacturing and repair processes

Making a high-precision die is a long process that needs measurements at multiple steps. Usually, a Coordinate Measuring Machine in a lab will make these measurements.

Innovations in Machine Tool in Process Measurement and Feedback with Metrology Close Loop

The demand to make more complex parts with more accuracy at lower costs is increasing. Measuring parts at the CNC machine is becoming more important and becoming a common practice.

Laser Integration For Point Cloud

Blue Light Laser Sensor Integration and Point Cloud Metrology within the Manufacturing System

Measurement has been a part of a manufacturing system for many years. Measurement and manufacturing systems are being brought ever closer to meet the current production needs. Things such as a blue light laser sensor speed up the inspection process. This help us move closer to meeting production needs.

AAT3D In Modern Machine Shop Article About Probing Feedback

AAT3D In Modern Machine Shop Article Opportunities for machining automation can extend beyond moving or handling parts. When the application is right, using feedback loops between measuring devices and CNCs for automatic, in-process corrections can bring the promise of the interconnected shop floor down to the level of the individual workzone. Add functions such as automatic report generation, and these systems operate like miniature, self-contained “smart factories,” where traditionally siloed production and quality control processes merge. As such, self-correcting feedback loops could be implemented, either as an introduction to data-driven workflows or as an addition to already digitalized shop floors. Download
