CAMWorks Speeds Milling for Magnus Hi-Tech

By DE Editors

Florida-based Magnus Hi-Tech Industries Inc., a precision fabricator, has reduced engineering and CNC programming time by using CAMWorks, a solids-based CAM solution from Geometric Limited.

Using sheet metal fabrication and machining technology, coupled with quality methodologies, Magnus provides a range of products including holding brackets, components for military simulators, housings, struts, mounting blocks, impellers, and military chassis.

Magnus recently started using the Mazak 5-axis CNC milling machine to reduce changeover times and machine downtime, and realized that the CAM software being used was not letting it take the full advantage of the milling machine. The comapny needed an application that was compatible with the SolidWorks platform the company uses. 

“CAMWorks’ tight integration with Magnus Hi-Tech’s SolidWorks environment facilitates true associative machining, so that any revision to a part design updates the SolidWorks solid model as well as the CAMWorks file, permitting CAMWorks to automatically generate the new toolpaths, the tool list and, if required, the fixture modifications as well,” says Mike Blake, methods engineer/program manager for Magnus Hi-Tech. “This has resulted in time savings on revisions ranging from 20 to 60 percent.”
