Manufacturing Software Solutions

We provide the tools to take your design from digital to physical

Concepts NREC’s machining software solutions are industry-focused. By focusing our CAM software tools on specific challenges, we streamline the programming process so that you can spend less time behind a computer and start cutting metal sooner than you thought possible.

The future of turbomachinery design is here!

Concepts NREC is happy to announce that the transition of our design tools to the OMNIS platform is well underway! AXIAL, our axial turbine and compressor meanline design and analysis product, has already made the transition. In addition, much of the axial context of our flagship 3-D design product, AxCent®, has also been migrated to this new platform.

OMNIS will empower turbomachinery designers by leveraging the power of Concepts NREC and Cadence/NUMECA design & analysis tools to push the boundaries of performance and durability, all in a single interface.

Turbomachinery Manufacturing Solutions

Tap into 60+ years of turbomachinery experience with MAX-PAC.

Manufacturing turbomachinery can be a challenging endeavor. Whether you want to flank mill a ruled blade to a mirror finish or use toroidal and barrel cutters to efficiently finish a turbine blade, we have a module to solve the challenges that are unique to these applications. These geometry-specific products allow you to configure your CAM system for any type of turbomachinery.

Input geometry is critical for producing high-quality toolpaths. That’s why our workflow starts with using CAD tools to prepare geometry and build a reliable and repeatable configuration.

From there it only takes a few clicks to generate an initial toolpath. Our collision avoidance algorithms do the hard work of orienting the tool so that you can focus on fine tuning to produce a toolpath that looks exactly the way you want it to.

As you build your operations, our integrated material removal and machine tool simulation tools enable you to further optimize your toolpaths so that you don’t waste valuable time on your machine.

What Are the 5 Axes in 5 Axis Machining?
by Christos Maninos, CAM Application Engineer & Peter Klein, Director, CAM Software
What is 5 axis machining? In short, it is manufacturing a component on a CNC milling machine that can travel in 5 different directions. These machines allow the cutting tool to reach around parts with a high degree of freedom. This makes them ideal for milling the complex shapes of turbo machinery components.

Accelerating a Career in Turbomachinery CAM and Manufacturing Solutions During a Pandemic
by Kate Guerrina, Marketing Manager
The global health crisis has presented business and industry with uncertainties we could not have anticipated. Here at Concepts NREC, we've worked hard to adapt for the health and safety of our colleagues and for our business. That means, among other things, that I and the majority of my colleagues have been physically separated since early March. I miss them. I miss seeing their faces and those brief hallway conversations-in-passing that later prove to be invaluable learning moments.  So now, more than ever, I wonder what kind of person accelerates their career mid-pandemic and moves directly into a virtual office with fewer opportunities for learning tribal knowledge. Our CAM solutions group recently hired a Product Manager into that situation, so I asked what made him comfortable managing our CAM products for turbomachinery. Meet Jonathan Bicknell.
