Everything You Need
In One Place
The machining operations report is addressed at machine operators, toolroom staff and managers who need detailed information about the machining process.
The standard options are Shop Documentation and Work Instructions, which can create a report as a TXT, HTML or PDF file.
The standard available machining report templates can be extended with special functions, data and drawings to meet individual company requirements.
Switch to Industry 4.0 compliant documentation!
The machining report can contain detailed data in tabular or drawn form, or a combination of the two. The report can contain detailed data on Tool list, Time (Total, Cutting...), Part geometry and material, Control geometry, Machining parameters, Control parameters, Machining sequencing, Machine tool setup, Machine tool control events, Post commands, Tool parameters, Tool path information. The amount of output data required is strictly defined according to a company template.
Reports: Various types
The report can also take the form of technical documentation including 2D/3D dimensions or personalized illustrations showing the various stages of machining. The tools and toolholders can be shown as a tabular list or as actual drawing views that include characteristic dimensions relevant to the machining process.
Basic and advanced
The Basic Machining Reports contain the required information in tabular form in a text or Excel, HTML or PDF file. In the individual columns, the operator is clearly provided with the most important information concerning the sequence of operations or the tools used (depending on priority), which can be integrated into the company's CAM/PDM/PLM information workflow.
The order of individual columns, custom requirements, additional information or comments can be taken directly from the NX CAM operations environment or defined (e.g. re-naming of operations) at the stage of generating the machining report.
The extended machining reports contain additional information, just like the basic reports, in tabular form in TXT or Excel, HTML or PDF files. Minimum/maximum tool overhang, additional operation numbering, renaming, wear and tear, data export to ERP or PLM system are some of the additional requirements that we implement in such projects. The ability to present this data on personalized 2D/3D drawings/documentation enables the elimination of paper documentation from the company's documentation workflow.
The possibility of presenting these data on personalized 2D/3D drawings/documentation enables control of the load of employees, tools, machines and transfer of these data to the DNC or PLM system. With such assumptions, it is possible to completely eliminate 2D paper documentation and move to the circulation of documentation compliant with Industry 4.0 standards.
