This talented team is the primary, hands-on technology partner to manufacturing operations and provides the CNC programs that control the spectrum of multi-axis machines used to produce complex prototype and production parts and assemblies. This unit frequently functions as the liaison between the other technical units and the shop floor. Their networking, enthusiasm and leadership serve as a catalyst to promote and implement best practices and shape technology throughout Metalex.
Metalex technical units use the latest in available equipment and software to make CAD data transfer as easy as possible for our customers, accepting parasolid, IGES, Step or DXF files. We are able to work with files created in many software packages, including but not limited to the following: Siemens NX, CATIA , Pro-E, Applicon, Camax , Autocad, PC-DMIS, and more.
Leading products and methods are used to verify tool path and simulate machine operations before programs are released to manufacturing. In the event that a customer does not have a corresponding software package, Metalex will work with our engineering associates to transfer the information through other methods and formats.
