Technical support

FLOW TECH operates both conventional machines and modern NC machines. Our aim is to ensure our cooperating companies in the field of machining have as little influence on the resulting product as possible. Vertical and horizontal machining centres with up to 4-metre run-up, high-precision Wkv 100 finishing machine and SIP precision drill, electro-erosive cutters, test presses and the 3D Wenzel measuring instrument need to be mentioned here.

DESIGN

KONSTRUKCE

Members of FLOW TECH’s design unit are professionals in the development of tools, fixtures and gauges. They work on custom projects and are able to flexibly respond to stringent customer requirements thanks to the design unit being equipped with the SolidWorks and VISI PROGRESS software packages.

(more…)

The entire product development cycle is based on specific customer requirements as follows:

  • Conceptual design
  • Industrial design
  • Extensive assemblies and detailed design
  • Production documentation, assembly procedures
  • Správa vytvořených dat PDM
  • Its specific outcomes are then provided to customers

In this way, we are ready to offer the development and preparation of design documents in the following fields, not only to automotive industry customers:

mechanical clamping fixtures

mechanická sestava s elektromagnety

a mechanical assembly with electric magnets

and hydraulic clamping fixturesused for clamping parts machined on NC machine tools

small- and medium-sized pressing tools for:

  • specific moulding operations
  • associated operations
  • progressive operations
  • progressive/associated operations

universal or special control gauges for the comprehensive control of moulded parts

SolidWorks

SolidWorks offers 3D design software, design verification software, product data administration software and product documentation development software. Our designers make use of:

  • The SolidWorks Premium software package, which facilitates creating and validating designs, the administration of product data and communication of designs.
  • The SolidWorks Simulation Premium software package is used for testing designed products under actual operating conditions before they are dispatched to production.
  • Data administration software (EPDM), through which we administer and share not only the created data but also other accompanying documents.
  • SolidWorks Composer facilitates the creation of 2D and 3D images and animations.
  • eDrawings Professional facilitates work with 2D data

VISI PROGRESS

A software package intended specifically for designing progressive pressing tools. The concept underlying the software package is based on consistent use of standardised parts and predefined semi-finished products. It is characterised by a high-speed and efficient system of creating a cutting plan, which facilitates definition of the technological pressing procedure. The VISI PROGRESS software further allows simulation of the tensioning process with resultant determination of critical pressing tension values, which are subsequently applied as the basis for identifying the most advantageous design solution for the functional parts of tools along with determination of the optimal initial position of semi-finished products in the moulding process.

TECHNOLOGY

TPV_2

While creating technological procedures, our engineers use a dedicated part of the QI information system. Moreover, we use the Edge-CAM and WorkNC software packages to develop NC and CNC machine programmes.

(more…)

Preparation of technological procedures

When creating technological procedures, our company uses a part of the QI information system, which provides online insights into the current status of designs and technology as well as facilitates visualisation of the history of changes introduced regardless of the process and organisational segmentation. This substantially reduces the production preparation time, which makes it possible for us to respond more flexibly to our customers’ requirements.

GENERATION OF NC AND CNC MACHINE PROGRAMMES
Edge-CAM
The Edge-CAM software is a powerful tool in developing new strategies for advanced 3D shape machining (surfaces, Solid models) – an ideal aid in defining the optimal tool path. In this way, we achieve high quality in high-speed machining of parts with varying shapes. This in turn shortens the working time on complex orders and increases efficiency. The high-quality technology employed is further boosted by the possibility of validating the tool path via graphic simulation already at the production preparation stage.

WorkNC
The WorkNC software package facilitates the creation of NC programmes when manufacturing tools, pressing tools and models based on any surface and spatial CAD models.
