  • Longterm Technology Services Inc. Develops DYNMIK Design, a Siemens NX Mold & Die Wizard Motion Simulation & Design Verification Process 

    LONDON, ON; March 8, 2016–Longterm Technology Services Inc. has developed a new user-friendly motion simulation interface in conjunction with NX Tooling Design software that can make designs live. Transform 3D designs into 4D to verify designs and achieve desired production rates. This process will help reduce costly corrections at trials or potential ECN.  Ideal for Engineering Managers, Production Managers, Injection Mold and Stamping Die Designers, Production Plants & Decision-Makers.

    DYNMIK Design offers a User Friendly interface that allows designers to modify all critical parameters and run simulations in NX easily with little additional training; therefore, shortening design time. Powerful simulation ability of this app allows users to simulate complicated components that cannot be simulated in other software.  Accurate kinematics algorithm verifies collision-check, and provides velocity and acceleration analysis results. Video demonstration: https://youtu.be/0XQxx_0ZQJs

    Special features for users:

    • Check designs for potential interference conditions to avoid costly damage caused by collisions

    • Present  verified design to customers dynamically with motion animation simulating production cycle

    • Get accurate press setting parameters for your production

    • Analyze the acceleration & velocity of tools and transfer systems

    • Determine the maximum strokes per minute (SPM) to meet your customers’ requirements

    • Easy-to-use interface requires limited training

      Business benefits:  increase profits, shorten lead time, avoid costly corrections & delays, accelerate time to market, speed up innovation, reduce waste, stay competitive, improve quality, and quick implementation.

       “Longterm Technology has worked really hard with us to help develop DYNMIK Design,” says Ben Whitney, President of Armo-Tool Ltd. based in London, Ontario. “It’s been a really great tool for us, especially on transfer dies. We were really excited to see how fast we could go from concept to completion without making any of the mistakes and adjustments that are so common in a transfer system. Our customers were really impressed that they could see what the process was going to look like so early on and we could get their feedback and work with them.”

       Scott McIlquham, Tool Designer at MetriCan Mfg. Co. Inc. in Burlington claims, “The results of the curves and what we’ve been able to see are good in that we can avoid issues with collisions in the tooling and anticipate issues. Longterm Technology has been quite responsive to any requests we’ve had for updates to the software and taken into consideration quite a few of our recommendations to make it easier to use. We’ve been quite happy with the way they’ve been implementing those suggestions.  All in all, it’s a good tool for design.”

      “You can improve everything out  in your virtual world and have it work in the tool well before you’re in the manufacturing stage,” states Jamie Robinson, Engineering Manager at Omega Tool Corp. in Windsor. “When we were doing our normal simulations which involves constraining geometry, plugging in values and going through the sequencing usually takes between 2-3 hours to do. With the software from Longterm, we were able to do it in half an hour-the same process-which was a huge advantage as there’s not a lot of time wasted and with the way it works so simply, you can verify and get results immediately.”

  • A unique combination of hardware and software features that meet the needs of CAD users like no other mouse can.

    March 17, 2016 – 3Dconnexion today announces the release of the 3Dconnexion CadMouse, the first mouse designed specifically for CAD professionals. By combining powerful, ergonomic hardware and smart, easy-to-use software, the 3Dconnexion CadMouse provides a level of performance ordinary mice just can’t match, inside and outside the CAD environment.

    For more than 20 years, 3Dconnexion’s SpaceMouse product range has enabled a superior 3D navigation experience for CAD professionals. With a SpaceMouse in one hand taking care of 3D navigation, the “ordinary” mouse in the other hand is free to click and select. But over the years, 3Dconnexion saw firsthand how frustrated customers were with an ordinary mouse. They wanted something better—so we built it.

    “We developed the 3Dconnexion CadMouse because CAD users asked us to.” says Antonio Pascucci, VP of products at 3Dconnexion. “We took the time to understand what they needed before developing a combination of smart hardware and software features.”

    “With the introduction of the 3Dconnexion CadMouse, we are excited to be meeting the demands of CAD professionals across a broad range of industries and professions,”
    Pascucci says. “The icing on the cake is that CadMouse enables a new level of Two-Handed Power for our current customers. In other words, using a CadMouse together with a 3Dconnexion 3D mouse like the SpaceMouse Pro or SpaceNavigator makes it possible to interact with digital content in a way that wasn’t possible before.”

    Discover why CadMouse’s features outperform and outclass an ordinary mouse:
     

    • Dedicated, Full-Size Middle Mouse Button — Every CAD user knows how much they rely on the middle mouse button, but ordinary mice bury it under the scroll wheel. The CadMouse has a dedicated, full-size middle mouse button, so it’s no longer necessary to click the uncomfortable scroll wheel thousands of times per day.
    • QuickZoom – Effortlessly zoom in and out of your models or drawings with a single click of a thumb button.  Combine this feature with the 6-degrees-of-freedom navigation enabled by a 3Dconnexion 3D mouse for previously unseen levels of Two-Handed Power.
    • Smart Scroll Wheel1 – Automatic scroll wheel performance depending on the active application. Precise “click-to-click” zooming in CAD applications or speedy scrolling in browsers and documents. It’s a seamless experience that ordinary mice just can’t provide.
    • Advanced Laser Sensor— With 8200dpi and a poll rate of up to 1000Hz (responsiveness of 1 millisecond) you’ll click exactly where you need to, when you need to. The CadMouse has the level of precision CAD professionals demand—and deserve.
    • Gesture / Radial Menu Button – The CadMouse’s gesture button opens a context sensitive on-screen radial menu. Simply move the cursor left, right, up or down to activate the command.
    • Optimally Shaped PTFE feet – Because 3Dconnexion specializes in CAD, we pay acute attention to details like how materials and geometry affect friction. It’s especially important when you consider that serious CAD users can be moving their mouse up to 1km per week. CadMouse has optimally shaped feet made from PTFE, a material with one of the lowest coefficients of friction against any solid, resulting in a near perfect equilibrium. The result? CadMouse moves exactly how you mean it to—every time.

    1 patent pending.
