3-D design software offers collaboration for large data sets
IronCAD has announced the availability of IronCAD Design Collaboration Suite (DCS) 2017 Product
Update 1. According to the company, this update enhances the
software’s performance when dealing with large assemblies,
decreasing save times by 25 percent and speeding up graphical interaction by 45 percent.
The software has been upgraded to the latest modeling kernels and native translators for the industry’s newest formats.
Users can choose bend allowance and bend deduction calculations to determine the flat length of sheet stock required to
deliver the desired dimension of the bent part. The update
has added support for bend deduction on the individual bend
settings to give users additional control of their unfolds.
A new materials library has been added that lets users set
parts with various material information and color properties.
Laser tracking system designed
for real-time edge detection
launched the JU-PITER-S™ robot
and feature detection and tracking in very harsh environments such as oxyfuel, plasma, and
high-power laser metal cutting.
In this patented laser triangulation
technology, a scanning laser beam provides a high-resolution, programmable
measurement scan of the object, highly
immune to process noise and flying
An automatically controlled, embedded video camera with LCD filtering
makes the system suitable for measuring various metallic surface finishes and
allows simple programming of the applications and remote monitoring of the
process in operation. Liquid or air cooling together with a pressurized front
shield protect the camera from heat,
fume, hot spatter, and dust.
The system can be used in many adaptive robotic applications, including beveling of metallic parts, in which it helps
ensure high-speed, high-quality bevel
dimensions despite part position error
or part distortion, says the company.
Zinc phosphate coating protects
iron, steel parts from heat
MZN finish from
coating for iron and steel components.
It provides protection up to 1,400 degrees F for high-heat applications in
which break-in lubricity is critical, such
as pistons, rotor and calipers, and machined components.
The 20-min. coating process comprises five steps, making it suitable for
in-house finishing. The coating is safe
to apply at a temperature of 140 to 160
degrees F with no boiling or splattering, and bath maintenance requires a
simple procedure to monitor the concentration.
The coating is suitable for parts that
do not require a dark black finish but
need corrosion protection.
