TDM Collision Data Generator

New: Automated generation of collision data for Siemens NX and CATIA NC users

The TDM Collision Data Generator module is part of the TDM Data and Graphic Generators (T3D) and generates in a matter of seconds the collision data required for NC programming based on the item data.

Improved CAM tool data thanks to integrated calculation logics

Collision data is of crucial importance for NC programming in Siemens NX and CATIA systems. But creating it takes up a great deal of time. The collision elements have to be laboriously measured in the 2D graphics. Another drawback is that no standardized data is available from other data sources. Based on user recommendations, TDM Systems is tackling this issue with the aim of automating the generation of collision data and reducing users' workload.

Improved data quality with automation and know how

The TDM Collision Data Generator uses the technical benefits of the TDM Data and Graphic Generators. The parameterized items form the basis for calculating the collision data. The logics programmed especially for this also help with accurate generation of collision data. This is why collision data generation only works in conjunction with the TDM Data and Graphic Generators:

  • Generation of tool collision data for Siemens NX and CATIA CAM systems
  • The data is generated based on the items created with the TDM Data and Graphic Generators
  • Collision data is created automatically in the TDM master data
  • Collision data can be added to existing items
  • When generating new items, the collision data is also generated automatically 
  • Important: Collision data is only generated for rotationally symmetric tools

Benefits for Siemens NX and CATIA users

TDM users who work with Siemens NX or CATIA and use a CAM interface will enjoy a whole range of advantages:

Maximum time savings
for NC programmers: The time required for an item is reduced from three to ten minutes to a few seconds

Sustainable data management
establishment of a high-quality database designed for the requirements of Siemens NX or CATIA

Greater automation and intelligence
in data management ensure reliable NC programming
