MRL use with other CAM systems other than NX

Genius

Hello All,

 

I have a question that is to do with the SIemens MRL system, we would like to use this module at our company, we already use Teamcenter and NX but we also have other CAM systems in place, my question is has anyone else used the MRL library's to manage tooling requirements across multiple CAM systems? and if so how well does it work for you?

 

The reason I ask is that we would like a one shot system to control our data and as other CAM systems are incorporating their own take on the library systems, we need to choose the right system for us and as we are already heavily into using TC I would like to use that system.

 

Any input on this would be most welcome.

 

Regards

 

Dave

At PLMworld this year someone (I forget who right now) was working on using the MRL with Catia CAM.  I believe they were working with Siemens (or 3rd party?) to convert the MRL tool model into something Catia could use.

So it IS possible, but you have to investigate how to get the data into your CAM system(s).

Many thanks Ken,

I think I will have to do some more digging on this.

Ken's memory is good, as usual :-)

 

The MRL is not yet able to directly send tools to CAM systems other than NX.  We do have some ideas on how to offer such a capability, but these are in a planning stage for now.

 

In the meantime, it would take customization and data mapping to accomplish.

Thank you for the update Derek.

It would be very useful to have the MRL system be able to do this, even if it would export them to a different folder that could be accessed by other CAM systems.
