The CAx-Framework is the basic implementation platform for computer aided manufacturing environment. It allows seamless plug-in integration in market-leading CAx-systems like SIEMENS NX and is also available in standalone execution mode. Through object-oriented architecture design of the CAx-Framework, a unified implementation of technology specific CAM-modules is guaranteed. Software solutions of our Partner ModuleWorks can be used through well-defined interfaces. Integrative process chains for innovative technologies like laser alloying, in-process metrology, milling, grinding and polishing can be handled and implemented for customer-specific solutions on a unified basis.
