Manage Stamping Die at Your Fingertips

Last month, we have organised a few workshops for the sheet metal industry, sharing our knowledge in tooling design.

Tooling is one of the key manufacturing processes. By managing the tooling process well, one will be able to improve the product time-to-market and reduce the scrap rate as well as production cost. In the 3-hour session, we talked about the part analysis and unfolding process, with a focus on the integration of blank development with tooling design.

By attending this workshop, the participants have had the opportunity to experience the fast and accurate blank shape generation through a hands-on session. They were encouraged to bring along the CAD files they were working on, so that they would have a better understanding on how to unfold the formed part in just a minute, and bring the blank size of their part back.

SEAM 2016 - Symposium and Exhibition on Additive Manufacturing 2016

Organised by the Advanced Materials Research Centre (AMREC), SIRIM Berhad, the Symposium and Exhibition on Additive Manufacturing (SEAM) 2016 will be held at The Light Hotel in Penang from 26th July (Tuesday) to 27th July 2016 (Wednesday).

SEAM 2016 is a symposium followed by a full-day workshop on the second day, focusing on the latest technology of powder metallurgy, additive manufacturing. There will be authoritative experts, industry leaders, and participants from the academia, sharing their knowledge on additive manufacturing industry development, technology management and the operation during production process. Also, the symposium will discuss about areas such as processing and design, materials for additive manufacturing, additive manufacturing technologies, applications and industries, bioprinting and tissue engineering.

During this event, we are proud to present a topic on “The Auxiliary of Additive Manufacturing”, in which we will touch on how 3D scanning technologies and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) can complement additive manufacturing. These elements are crucial in a complete product development which could bring out the best in additive manufacturing technology.

What Makes A Great Engineer?

Do you have any engineers in mind that you always look up to? Who is your all-time favourite? Thomas Edison? Nikola Tesla? Henry Ford? Have you got what it takes to be a great engineer? 

To be successful in the field of engineering, here are some of the common traits and similarities great engineers shared and the skills and personalities that are required of you. 

Cheers, to all the great engineers out there, and the soon-to-be engineers.

Techne@PSDC - 3D Scanning Technology and Applications

In an earlier session of Techne@PSDC, a series of technical talks and lectures organised by PSDC, we are pleased to be invited to share our knowledge on 3D scanning technology with the participants. The event was very well responded with some 40 participants joining us to explore the technology and its applications in the industry.

In the two-and-a-half-hour session, we shared about different types of 3D scanners and how 3D scanning technology can help throughout front line operations and pre-production processes. We also further discussed with the audience on how the technology allows one to have better control in product design, production engineering, quality check on ordered components, and product inspection. Of all its major applications – some of which has revolutionised the product development process – product inspection and reverse engineering are among the most common use of 3D scanning technology.

We had a demo session at the end of our presentation showing the audience how the system, a combination of scanner and software, is employed to capture and reuse the 3D information. The whole process, including remodelling a design of the size and range of complexity of a computer mouse, was completed within twenty minutes.

With the intelligent feature recognition of the system, it allows the user to have good control over the quality of a model created through the remodelling process. The crowd was also very impressed with the ease of use of the system.

It was indeed a very fruitful day for us, sharing with an engaging audience the valuable practical information and insights of this technology.

Smart Manufacturing – Getting It Right

On May 24, 2016 (Tuesday), 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., the Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM) will be organising the FMM ICT Conference 2016 on “Enhancing Manufacturing Competitiveness Globally with Cloud Computing” at the Royale Chulan Damansara Hotel. Aiming to create greater awareness among Malaysian manufacturers on the latest manufacturing and ICT Technology, as well as assist Malaysian manufacturers, especially SMIs, to learn to leverage on ICT to improve their business performance.

In this conference, we will be presenting a session on “Smart Manufacturing – Getting It Right” - an overview of how Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming manufacturing. Through Next-Gen Manufacturing System and Cyber Physical System, we will talk about interconnected system that is capable of controlling physical entities, and also system that can make automated and smart decisions, or remote visualization, monitoring, control and alerts.

On top of that, we will be exhibiting our solutions offerings – total solutions which cover Product Design and Development, 3D Printing, Reverse Engineering, Product Inspection, and e-Manufacturing. Being the leading and most established CAD, CAM, and CAE solutions provider in Malaysia, IME has been serving the industries and educational institutions for over 36 years. Come visit us to learn about digital twin – a cyber physical model that enables you to control your equipment digitally or remotely no matter where it is.

Registration will be closed on May 17, 2016 (Tuesday). Seats are limited to 200 registrations and on a first-come, first-served basis. REGISTER NOW.
