CAD/CAM
    BNR uses Solid Edge and AutoCAD for our design work. The majority of our projects are now modeled using Solid Edge with AutoCAD used for customers that request its use and for legacy data.
  We use MasterCam for in-house use and contract programming.  We have been trained in the manual programming of Mazak Mazatrol controls and are also well versed in G-code programming as well.
    Here is an example of a 3D assembly model of a 2 station fixture designed with Solid Edge for use on a horizontal machining center.  The model of the aluminum die cast part was supplied by the customer and was used to ensure proper fit and to locate the cast datum points.  This fixture uses manual clamping in combination with manual screw pump to hydraulically center and clamp the part.
    This CMM fixture was also designed using Solid Edge.  The fixture clamps the part at 3 locations, then uses go/no-go gage at fourth location to check for flatness. The windows provide clearance to allow all probing in one setup.
    Here is an example of programming a roughing operation for a hydro-form punch.  This is a screen shot of the Mastercam verification process.
    This screen shot is of programming the finish operation of the same hydro-form punch.
