Third Wave Systems, a premier Finite Element Analysis (FEA) based, machining modeling provider is pleased to announce a significant investment in measurement and computing hardware, as well as in their growing team of qualified and driven people. In order to further validate tool wear, surface finish, and chip breakage modeling for the company’s AdvantEdge™ and Production Module™ machining modeling and optimization products, Third Wave Systems has acquired the Alicona InfinteFocus G5 variable focus measurement system for its Testing and Validation Center (TVC). With its full 5-axis scanning capability, the measurement system will help bolster TWS R&D efforts by providing high fidelity surface data (see figure) for tools and workpieces. In addition, the company will be dramatically upgrading and expanding its High-Performance Computing (HPC) center to deliver faster analysis to its customers. Innovative manufacturing companies implement these solutions to dramatically reduce costs of machined components, accelerate design cycles, improve part quality and get to market faster.
