Spatial Corp., a provider of 3D development components for design, manufacturing and engineering applications, has announced that Kreuz Co. Ltd., a manufacturing company specializing in deburring machines, has released Deburring CAM. The product incorporates Spatial’s 3D ACIS Modeler, 3D InterOp, and HOOPS 3D Application Framework components to shorten the complex path creation time for Kreuz’s robots.
Kreuz’s deburring technology is used by companies such as Toyota Motor Corporation, Denso Corporation, and Honda Motor Co., Ltd. With Deburring CAM, users are able to decrease teaching time by up to 90 percent, according to the company
“One of our biggest goals with our specialized deburring machines was to decrease the teaching time to create tool paths for deburring and simulation. Because the quantity of teaching points is large, a lot of time had been required for teaching preparation and teaching itself. In 2006, we started to create new 3D OLP software with Spatial’s 3D components to reduce the teaching time,” says Shuichi Nakata, Kreuz president. “Though we had very limited expertise in 3D software development, we could develop the very rich 3D software by taking advantage of Spatial’s 3D components as well as Spatial’s dedicated support. We finished the development of 3D functionalities in only 10 months.”
