9:45 - 10:30 AM ¿Su Taller está listo para el Mecanizado de 5 ejes? – Christian Müller Grob systems
Is Your Shop Ready for 5-Axis Machining? Because of its clear advantages and proven successes, the increasing adoption of 5-axis machining is a trend that will continue. Adding the technology to a shop instantly eliminates competition that can’t produce complex parts. Simply put, by delivering parts that fewer companies can produce, a shop with 5-axis capabilities will generate more revenue. What’s more, production of simpler parts is dramatically enhanced and any future transition in customer base or part complexity are more easily accommodated and planned.
It’s one-of-a-kind capabilities make 5-axis machining appropriate especially for companies already in, or thinking about adding production for aerospace, medical, oil and gas and automotive sectors. In fact, some common, high-demand workpieces are only possible with 5-axis machining. These include contoured parts like mold cavities, blisks (bladed-disk parts) and impellers. As with any capital purchase or infusion of technology, there are major strategic, financial and process considerations when planning to make a commitment to 5-axis machinery. Supported by application examples and case studies, this presentation will focus on 8 key factors and help you answer the question: Is your shop ready for 5-axis machining?
10:30 - 11:15 AM Nuevas Técnicas para Maximizar la Efectividad del Mecanizado – Steve Bertrand, Mastercam
New Techniques to Maximize Machining Effectiveness Machining effectiveness depends on understanding two crucial elements – the tool you are using and the motion that drives it. The increasing advances in both of these areas can make it difficult for a shop to keep up. And if they aren’t aware of both sides of this issue they’ll miss out on benefits derived from the combined knowledge and won’t achieve true machining effectiveness. This presentation covers a range of topics: a) the century-old concept of radial chip thinning and its influence and use today, b) the industry’s advancement past this fundamental technique into new territory, c) how tools interact with the motion that drives them, and d) how to gain an advantage by knowing how this interaction works. Attendees will leave with a deeper understanding of how materials and tools interact in the subtractive manufacturing process. More importantly, they will leave with practical tips and information they can use to boost their own performance. This presentation uses Mastercam as the example CAM, but the information applies to general tooling and any CAM software that supplies this type of motion.

3:30 - 4:15 PM Rectificado de Alta Velocidad con CBN – Sven Schöller, Erwin Junker
High Speed Grinding with CBN CBN also known as Cubic Boron Nitride is an industrial crystal that is second only to diamond in its hardness. The substance also makes an effective grinding abrasive for super alloys. This is because, in addition to its hardness, CBN is an excellent conductor of heat and can help draw the heat generated in grinding away from the part. The two primary types of CBN tools are vitrified and electroplated: Vitrified CBN: High-volume Production and Electroplated CBN: Complex Forms
Vitrified CBN: High-volume Production - Typically, a vitrified CBN abrasive application involves grinding a large number of precision parts with light requirements for material removal. It requires a rigid machine with three or more CNC axes, depending on part geometry. Fixturing should be robust to ensure process accuracy and a water-based coolant should be supplied at pressures from 250 to 1,000 PSI. Coolant Delivery, important in all grinding applications, is critical in achieving maximum productivity and economy with vitrified CBN tools. The position of the flow and its consistency are important. Matching coolant velocity to the Speed of the Wheel also benefits CBN grinding productivity. The required coolant velocity in cubic inches per second can be determined by multiplying the wheel speed in inches per second by the nozzle area in square inches. Dressing is extremely critical and is typically measured in ten-thousandths of an inch. For example, a wheel used in grinding a turbine blade would typically be dressed 0.0002-in. every three to five parts.
Electroplated CBN: Complex Forms. - Another method of CBN grinding uses a single layer of CBN grain bonded to a precision steel wheel core. The main advantage of plated CBN wheels is their ability to generate deep radial grooves and slots with high depth-to-width ratios - features impossible to make with aluminum oxide or vitrified wheels. Using five-axis CNC, the wheels can produce shapes previously generated only by EDM. Plated wheels also can be stacked in a wheel set to produce multiple forms and enable the grinding of a variety of features at the same time.
4:15 - 4:45 PM La Importancia de la Precisión Volumétrica de la Máquina-Herramienta en la Fabricación de Piezas Aeroespaciales – Robb Hudson, Mitsui Seiki
The Importance of Volumetric Machine Tool Accuracy in Aerospace Parts Manufacturing Traditionally, manufacturers have ensured accuracy of parts by calibrating just the linear motion of their machine tools. The problem: When making three-dimensional parts, knowing a machine’s one-dimensional accuracy ignores squareness, straightness, angular, and non-rigid body errors, which are the largest contributors to positioning inaccuracies. This presentation will detail the machine tool design and construction characteristics required to ensure optimum volumetric accuracy, and the instruments used to verify and measure volumetric accuracy. The audience will learn: What is volumetric accuracy and why it is important to aerospace parts manufacturers and the machine tool construction and design methods that promote volumetric accuracy; Ask the right questions pertaining to accuracy specifications when comparing machine tools; Realize the relationship between the volumetric accuracy of a machine tool and a company’s profitability
4:45 - 5:30 PM Las Posibilidades de la Impresión en 3D de Metales – Raul Barriga, Renishaw
The Possibilities of 3D Printing of Metals Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is the process of constructing 3D objects by adhering material layer by layer from the data of a three-dimensional model (CAD). This conference shows the possibilities offered by the new additive manufacturing technique with laser fusion technology, precursor in the processes of manufacture by matter input, capable of producing totally dense metal parts directly from a 3D CAD model, by means of a laser of High power fiber. Metallic powder coatings additive manufacturing systems can create complex metal parts to meet a high industrial demand and are an alternative to the changing needs of the industry.

9:00 - 9:45 AM Mecanizado Inteligente: incremento de la productividad y reducción de CPU en la industria automotriz - Gustavo Israel García Valencia, Iscar
Intelligent Machining: Increased Productivity and CPU Reduction in the Automotive Industry What is the CPU and how does the increase in productivity affect it? The cost per unit (CPU) produced in any type of industry is always affected by the consideration of different types of costs, both fixed and variable, having a significant impact on the CPU. Those costs that are of variable type, that is, cost of direct raw material, materials and direct and indirect inputs, etc. Cutting tools are part of this type of cost, affecting the CPU immediately. To have a lower CPU through the correct but most efficient use of the cutting tool, it is important to have an increase in the productivity index of the manufacturing process, that is, to make the process much more profitable and competitive. This presentation offers innovative concepts in different types of machining applications that help to make a significant impact in the increase of the productivity index and, consequently, in the reduction of the CPU.

12:30 - 1:15 PM Cómo optimizar el uso de centros de mecanizado para producción de autopartes – Hipólito Ramírez, DMG MORI
How to Optimize the Use of Machining Centers to Produce Autoparts The use of advanced parametric programming (macro programming) to achieve process efficiency offers a very wide area of opportunity, since it can be used in different areas such as security in offset tables (geometric, wear and reference), programming for families of pieces (high production), in which only one would have to change what is necessary to not have a program for each one of the pieces. With a single program that covers the needs of our production, thus avoiding the error in programming and the times that this demands, this system also protects a poor manual loading of data to off-sets of tools or reference with to avoid collisions when the machine is in operation or production.
The way in which these data would be loaded would be automatically through the machining program, information that only should be managed by the person in charge of the production line and not by the operators, leaving to him the responsibility only the load of data in the tool wear offsets, which must have a minimum and maximum range with respect to the needs of the process and the cutting tools (this would have to be conditioned by the person in charge of the production line). The main objective of this system is to have a stable process, in order that the operator only must cover what is necessary for the production process.
1:15 - 2:00 PM Integración de la robótica en las líneas de producción - Luis Gerardo Barrales, ABB
Artimpianti is an Italian company that specializes in installing foundries. Today it works mainly in the supply of turnkey production lines for aluminum foundries across the world that make cylinder heads and other components. Key to the company’s success is the technological know-how of integrating robotics into production lines. The company has strong project and production skills (with advanced 3-D simulation tools) in addition to advanced software expertise.
Today, the automotive industry demands production flexibility from foundries rather than high volume. Pressure tends to concentrate at the three bench die-casting lines with capacities of between 33 and 45 pieces per hour where quick and easy production changes can be made. In collaboration with ABB and another key supplier, a system was developed whereby a unique special beam supports two cantilever arms positioned behind the benches to manipulate the cores and the liquid metal. From the same beam an IRB 6620 robot is suspended and manages the unloading procedure by removing the casting from the mold and moving it to the pre-finishing area where it is cooled. Sand is removed from the outer surfaces, feeders are cut and the casting is placed on a special multi-level cooling conveyor where it reaches the correct temperature and then passes for final finishing.
The plant layout was designed to improve operator mobility and safety in addition to giving visibility to the work-station where manual activities are undertaken and can pose a risk to personal safety. Consequently, an operator can now be close to a mold for analysis, carry out service or change it without stopping the robot in the other two work zones. The ability to change the mold and the tools without stopping the line has significantly improved the overall equipment effectiveness and as a result, increased productivity.

The Future of Metrology Quality assurance is one of the most important parts of the any industry, and as today’s requirements for smother operation, better performance and a longer service life, keep on getting more and more demanding and strict for all kind of manufactured products, different and new challenges for the quality and metrology professionals arise, and need to be dealt with. This presentation pretends to show a few of those challenges and some of the ways the state of the art metrology face them and offer viable solutions, how the technologies on dimensional metrology develop into the answers for the future of quality assurance, and what our expectations on the near future can be on new tools, procedures and technologies.
4:45 - 5:30 PM ¿Qué hacer para mejorar la sujeción de sus piezas aprovechando la mejora continua de las herramientas de corte? - Armando Gordillo, Vektek
What Do You Do to Improve the Clamping of Your Parts by Taking Advantage of The Continuous Improvement of Cutting Tools? According to an investigation of workholding at the level of multiple media like Internet, technical magazines, universities and schools, we realize that the studies in workholding by hydraulic devices are very superficial or practically nonexistent. For this reason, the focus on the presentation of Vektek is on the tangible results of post-integration hydraulic clamping and the real issues that are increasingly being exposed by CNC manufacturers, as well as their end users. We also focus the manufacturers of hydraulic devices in Mexico on what tools/technologies they are using in their machine shops to compete with countries like the United States, Japan and Germany that dominate the niche. Apparently, the best machine with the best tools is of no use if this “couple” is not completed with the clamping of the piece... So where is the workholding on your priority list?

9:45 - 10:30 AM Producción flexible para estampado y doblado – Stefan Krieg, Bihler
Flexible Production for Stamping and Folding This conference presents the advantages of the Bihler servo technology in the manufacture of constructional groups, using typical examples of application. The modular production and assembly systems of the BIMERIC series are suitable for their flexible application possibilities and very short reproducible equipment operations. In this way, it is possible to manufacture even small and medium series as well as numerous product variants efficiently and economically on a single production machine.
The chain fabrication, from the raw material to the assembly group completely assembled in one, reduces the process chain and increases the added value for the user. BIMERIC SP (combination of machines formed by servoprensa and BIMERIC platform) allows to rectify processes of sequential stamping in the press and to integrate them in the platform BIMERIC with great ease of access (as in the case of forms of threads, assembly of screws, contact welding, among other). Depending on each production task, it is possible to equip the appropriate production facility with powerful machining groups, flexible process modules and a customized tool and tooling solution.

11:45 - 12:30 PM Metrología óptica: desde la idea hasta la realidad - Muganes Musharrafie , Cimco
Optical Metrology: From the Idea to the Reality The industry is becoming more demanding in improving quality, costs and times in the productive processes. The automotive and aerospace industry is an example of high competitiveness, which has generated innovations in its processes through the insertion of new technologies that in the end become a decisive factor for the supply chain. One of these innovations is the GOM Optical Metrology, capable of being in the entire production process from material characterization, finite element simulation validation, design, tooling machining, first part inspection, fixtures adjustment, wear monitoring from tooling, to automated inspection in production.
Optical Metrology has advantages for being versatile (measures dimensions, deformations, displacements, velocities) and for providing complete information of the component without touching it, breaking with the paradigm of the traditional measurement that was punctual and by contact. Once again, Optical Metrology as it offers a complete digitization of the element (millions of points for each shot) is the foundation of Industry 4.0 in terms of quality assurance, since it implies communication and self-control of individual manufacturing steps within of the process chain with self-regulation parameters based on the latest measurement results.
12:30 - 1:15 PM Beneficios del quinto eje y su programación avanzada en el sector Aeroespacial y Moldero - Eden Molina, Open mind
Benefits of The 5th Axis and Its Advanced Programming In The Aerospace And Moldmaking Industry The 5th axis is one of the most important innovations in the metalworking industry. It confers a chip starting process to be dynamic and useful when directing the rotation and translation displacement of a part or a cutting element. This innovation is becoming more and more common and uses combinations of several key technologies that can be the machine and its CNC controller, tooling, cutters and, of course, CAD / CAM software, whose main characteristic of all is to give precision and good results. An airplane only makes sense when it is in the air and so does the 5th axis, it only makes sense when we see it “moving” properly. All the mentioned technologies put into service are needed and the baton will be carried by a skilled and trained programmer, hand in hand with CAD/CAM software that has the power and capacity to make the most of this innovation. Today, a whole set of ideas guide the process of starting a chip to an outstanding way to produce elements for Industry 4.0. The justification for the use of High Engineering Technologies will come in the form that is more thinned and faster. A stated software can help programmers, machines and cutters to rough out more and achieve all their goals.
