New Features


View details on the latest features, updates, and enhancements   

1. Tool and Holder Deflection Analysis – Reduce design iterations and engineer better processes

In AdvantEdge™, the users are able to model a tool holder and tool for analyzing deflection in turning and grooving processes. In addition, users can visualize displacement contours for the tool and the cutter body for all processes, including the custom kinematics processes. This analysis will help accelerate tool design cycles by providing a greater understanding of stress in the tool body and incurred displacement for a significantly larger parameter space than possible in cutting tests. This feature can also be used in process planning to ensure tooling systems don’t deflect excessively for improving part quality and even reducing tool breakage.








2. 40% Speedup in the last 6 months 

With the latest AdvantEdge™ v7.8, the users experience a computation speedup of 15% vis-à-vis AdvantEdge™ v7.7. This brings the total speedup to more than 40% in the last six months. The speed improvements target processes that require larger tools, as is the case with High-Efficiency Machining and processes using indexable tools modeled along with the tool holder.

3. New AdvantEdge GUI

We are excited to announce that the new AdvantEdge GUI is in the works and will be launched soon! We are eager to share with you a sneak peek into the revamped interface at these events.

4. User-Defined Kinematics to Model Complex Non-Standard Processes

User-Defined Kinematics allows users to model complex and novel processes like spin tool turning, power skiving, thread whirling, bar peeling, and many, many more. Given the complex kinematics of processes, like power skiving, it is nearly impossible to experimentally measure even the forces experienced by the tool and the workpiece. The ability to model such processes using AdvantEdge in v7.6 becomes more critical to uncover new designs and process parameters.

Production Module

1. Ensuring Improved Part Quality with Tool Deflection based Optimization

Production Module enables users to confidently optimize finishing operations with the availability of tooltip deflection as an optimization constraint. This constraint is applied as an additional constraint to the ‘Optimize By’ and the ‘Limit By’ optimization parameters. You can now ensure that the tooltip deflection is maintained below the maximum allowable value to ensure part production per the required specification.


2. Even Faster than Production Module v8.4

Production Module v8.5 provides optimization speedup of up to 50% in addition to the 4X average improvement observed in PM v8.4. In general, larger speed ups will be seen with cases that have a higher proportion of non-rapid cutter centers outside the air-cut clearance distance.
