systems or manual methods for your 2D programming needs? Put
all the benefits on knowledge-based shop floor programming
to work for your 2D machining needs at an affordable price
point with Prospector Silver Edition.
The Modern Networked Shop
if your shop is organized around a dedicated NC programming
department, Prospector Silver can make good sense as an electronic
delivery system. Part data and NC programs can be packaged
into a Prospector project and
stored on a server by the programming department. A license of
Prospector isn't even required for this step. In the shop,
machinists can pull down the project from the server when they are
ready to begin work on the job. Because the data is organized
in the project, the paper trail (NC setup sheets, work orders, ...)
is eliminated. It's all self-contained in the project which
acts as an electronic traveler. The Prospector Silver licenses
lets machinists view, edit, model tool assemblies and
check for gouges and
stock collisions. This has the enormous benefit of giving
the machinists more confidence in the programs they run as well as
empowering them to make use of the most efficient tool setups to get
the job done faster. In short, the machinists can be more
productive. When they're confident a program is ready to run,
the program is post processed right on the floor and sent to the
machine (i.e. the programming department can eliminate the post
processing step from their workload).
