Empower Your Team

Our commitment to continually advancing machining technology

Third Wave Systems is excited to start this year with a look into our latest and greatest developments in machining modeling! The series will focus on how modeling will make a lasting impact on your machining processes. The web-based sessions will dive into detail on how to apply TWS technology using case studies and specific examples from the Automotive, Aerospace & Defense, Orthopedic Implants, and Cutting Tool industries. This will give users and customers a chance to learn more about the capabilities and improvements in the latest releases of AdvantEdge and Production Module.

These short 1-hour innovation sessions are geared towards helping users understand machining modeling. Our initiative aims to help your team to:

  • Avoid tool breakage problems;
  • Use simulations effectively;
  • Perform fewer tests.


The workshops will highlight practical applications from Third Wave Systems’ customers and partners.  The events will focus on how modeling technology is being used to make a lasting impact on your machining processes. In order to register, please select the sessions of your choice.

1. Compressing Tool Design Time using AdvantEdge – A case study at Louis Belet – June 9th – 8 AM CST/3 PM CDT 

Manufacturing leader Louis Belet slashed its prototyping costs by a third and in the process increased its profitability, reduced its time to market and transformed its business.

How did the Belet engineering team accomplish this?

This fast-paced, insight-rich workshop will answer that question–and more. We’ll show you how to use predictive machining modeling to better focus on testing designs with a higher likelihood of success so you can:

  • Speed-up tool design;
  • Reduce carbide usage;
  • Compress overall testing.

In this 60-minute webinar, you’ll understand how integrating process improvements on existing CNC machines using physics-based machining modeling can move you from fast-to-market to first-to-market.

2. Is it possible to optimize a High Efficiency Machining toolpath? – June 21st – 01 PM CDT 

High Efficiency Machining (HEM) toolpaths are characterized by high axial engagement and low radial width of cut, resulting in entirely different chip loads, power consumption and engagement profile. Join us to uncover the peculiar characteristics of the HEM toolpath strategy and what makes it the strategy of choice, particularly for pocketing operations. The possibility of improving these HEM toolpaths and further improving tool life and cycle time is intriguing. In the session, we will identify ways to optimize HEM toolpaths. We will discuss the constraints and strategies for the optimization approach and share results from the production floor at our customers.

We will be continuously updating the list of events in the series. If you are interested in this type of web session or there are any specific topics you are interested in recommending, please contact us at [email protected].
