STEP-NC ISO Standards use and implementation will be demonstrated and discussed at the Okuma America IMTS booth S-8500, everyday at 11:00 a.m. during the show beginning September 8 – 13, 2014. David Odenhahl, Associate Technical Fellow at The Boeing Company will make a short presentation based on real time cutting titanium on an Okuma machine tool. Optimization of programming to cut the titanium part using STEP-NC will be discussed.
At 3:00 p.m. each day in conference room S-103e, attendees can meet with representatives from STEP Tools, Inc., The Boeing Company, Okuma America, Sandvik Coromant, and Iscar to ask questions about STEP and related aspects of STEP from its applications to benefits, and from cost to savings.
On Wednesday, Setpember 10, at 2:20 p.m., Jim Kosmala, VP of Technology at Okuma America Corporation and David Odendahl from Boeing will co-present during the TRAM Conference.
STEP has helped manufacturing companies maintain the intellectual property associated with the fine art of part processing. Through implementation, portability or transfer of processes in their entirety can be securely maintained and retained, even if individuals change or processes are “forgotten.” The data stored with the STEP program can capture and maintain all aspects of a job, from fixtures to tool path, feeds and speeds, geometry, material and more. The objective of these presentations is to help attendees better understand the advantages of implementation, practical applications, the evolution of STEP-NC and its role in the programming environment.
