The Akaer group has more than 300 highly skilled professionals in many areas such as design, stress calculation, simulation, and manufacturing engineering. In this last one, the team accumulates more than 30,000 hours of programming delivered to the most diverse clients in diverse areas of operation, from aircraft of great size to consumer goods. Among our tools we have all software with license certificates from manufacturers:
- NX 12 Siemens – Complete software that joins CAD / CAM / CAE to better meet the needs of your design, so that it becomes more efficient in initial design (CAD), finite element simulation (CAE) and manufacturing of a product (CAM), optimizing to the maximum, on the same platform.
- Robot Master X9 – Robotmaster overcomes programming barriers by automating trajectories for welding processes, complex contours, drilling and riveting, increasing throughput and consistency regardless of batch size or part complexity.
- Vericut 8.0.2 – Simulation and optimization of machining processes using precise algorithms that make their programming (CAM) be generated in a way that uses the maximum performance of your machine tool, reducing operating times outside the cutting region, increasing the productivity and reducing process times.
- CATIA: Multiplatform software for projects and product development, currently widely used in aeronautical and defense companies.
- Mastercam: Platform widely used in small and medium-sized companies, using features for 2, 5-axis machining and wire EDM.
Robots and NC equipment programming
Akaer offers a complete CNC (Computer Numerical Control) programming solution from demand receipt to tryout tracking on customer.
Computer numerical control (CNC) is a machine control system that is used mainly in lathes and machining centers. It allows the simultaneous control of several axes, through a list of movements written in a specific code (code G). For this reason the CN (NC), created by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), was developed in the 1940s, initially using perforated tapes and with the advent of the computer evolved into the CNC. This has achieved the goal of making complex, serial and / or high precision parts, especially when used in conjunction with the current CAD – Computer Aided Design / CAM – Computer Aided Manufacturing.
The introduction of CNC in industry has radically changed industrial processes. Profiles of high complexity are easily machined. 3-dimensional structures become relatively easy to produce and the number of steps in the process with operator intervention is drastically reduced. The CNC also reduced the number of human errors (which increases product quality by reducing rework and waste), streamlined assembly lines and made them more flexible, since the same assembly line can now be adapted to produce another product in one much shorter time compared to traditional production processes.
Multitasking centers with complex geometries programming
Multitasking is the combination of multiple machining processes in a single machine. It includes processes such as turning, milling, drilling, threading and boring on a single machine instead of multiple machines on the factory floor. Performs most or all of the machining processes of a part in a single fastening.
In addition to the CNC programming solution mentioned in the previous topic, Akaer offers multi-task centers working with complex geometries the development technology of post-processors, that is, reading the instructions issued from a CAM system and transcribing them appropriately for a specific CN machine. More than that, post-processing emits a CN machine code as efficient and productive as possible, bringing together two very different technologies and compensating for the shortcomings between them and meeting factory floor criteria based on safety and efficiency.
Once again offering a turn-key solution for programming and developing post-processors from receipt of demand to follow-up of the tryout at the customer’s premises.
High level of complexity programming
Programming of high complexity geometries in 5 axes, such as impellers and turbine rotors. The 5-axis machining offers infinite possibilities as to the size and complexity of the parts. The term “5-axis” refers to the number of directions in which the cutting tool can move: linearly through the X, Y, and Z axes and rotates in the A and B axes thus covering any cutting direction in the workpiece. With this you can:
- Machining complex shapes in a single setup increasing productivity
- Saving time and money with fewer fixtures
- Improved profitability and cash flow with shorter delivery times
- Parts with superior precision due to the elimination of multiple workstations
- Ability to use shorter cutting tools with higher cutting speeds without vibrations, thus achieving higher surface finishes and better overall part quality
