NX Software Helps Compressor Manufacturer Save up to 25% of Design Time and Reduce Manufacturing Costs
Kulthorn Kirby Public Company Limited (Kulthorn Kirby) is the first manufacturer of hermetic reciprocating compressors in Thailand and one of the leaders in the compressor business in Southeast Asia. Established in 1980, Kulthorn Kirby Group now comprises six other companies that employ around 6,000 employees. The group’s companies and products include Kulthorn Kirby, which manufactures compressors and condensing units for domestic and commercial refrigerators and air conditioners; Kulthorn Premier, compressors for domestic and commercial refrigerators; Kulthorn Materials and Control, enameled copper and aluminum wires; Kulthorn Kirby Foundry, quality iron castings; Kulthorn Steel, slitting and blanking of steel products; and Kulthorn Metal Products, metal forging, precision machining and heat treatment.
Welding & Weaving Machine Manufacturer Uses Teamcenter to Accelerate Product Changes by More than 25%
Established in 1916, Schlatter Industries AG (Schlatter), based in Schlieren near Zürich, Switzerland, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of equipment used in the production of wire mesh and girders by resistance welding. This technology joins metal parts in a bonded joint by using electric power to heat them to welding temperature, while at the same time subjecting them to a mechanical force. It allows a large number of welds to be performed quickly, accurately, cleanly, economically and with reproducible quality. It is also applied in machinery for seamless rail welding. The company also develops and produces weaving and finishing systems for the paper machine industry under the Jäger brand. As the only worldwide supplier, Schlatter also designs machinery for the processes upstream from weaving as well as for the final treatment of fabrics.
We often encounter left and right hand parts in aerospace manufacturing. The Sequential Mill operation provides an ability to generate toolpath for complex multi-axis toolpath for a wide range of geometry arrangements. But when it is time to mirror the toolpath for the opposite hand part, programmers need to keep a few things in mind when working with Sequential Mill. Here are the typical objectives:
1) Mirror the toolpath without reselecting geometry.
2) Reverse the toolpath so that the original climb cut/conventional cut strategy is maintained.
3) The mirrored toolpath must be verified against the mirrored geometry. 3D material removal is a requirement.
4) If looping is used in the original operation, the progression of the loops must be maintained in the mirrored toolpath. (If we start at the top and work down, the mirrored toolpath must progress in the same way.)
This video shows a quick solution to the problem while meeting the 4 objectives above.

Finding Who Has a License in Use
This article answers the question: How do I know who is using a certain license in NX?
Applies to NX 6 and later
1. Run the Lmtools application found in the NX Licensing Tools folder of your Start menu
a. For example: Start / All Programs / Siemens NX 9.0 / NX Licensing Tools / Lmtools
2. Select the Server/License File tab, pick Configuration using License File, and enter the port@hostname of your license server
Fiorenzato M.C. Srl (Fiorenzato) was founded in 1936 by Pietro Fiorenzato and produces coffee grinders and grinder dosers. The company is now managed by the third generation of the Fiorenzato family.
We are pleased to announce the release of Maintenance Pack 9 for Solid Edge ST7. Just a reminder that you will need your webkey to download this maintenance pack.

If you’ve ever had to install a fresh copy of NX or Solid Edge on a new computer, you're probably already aware that there are two basic methods employed by SPLM license management to determine that the computer that you are using is registered as a licensed entity in your SPLM license file. One is a pretty common computer networking term known as the physical media access control or "mac" address, and the other is an encrypted value known as the composite identification number or "CID." One can be obtained with a simple DOS command, and the other requires a program to extract the encrypted value.
The physical mac address is most commonly used to identify an NX client as a registered computer in a node locked installation, and the CID is most commonly used to identify a computer as a registered NX SPLM License Server. Although that sounds pretty straight forward, their roles are totally reversed in Solid Edge installations that do not incorporate the use of a hardware dongle. In Solid Edge installations, the mac address usually identifies the computer as a registered Solid Edge SPLM License Server, and the CID usually identifies the computer as a Solid Edge node locked client. In any case, you may be asked to provide one or the other when the time arrives to replace an obsolete or failed computer, so I thought I'd tell you where to get them both.
1. You can get the physical mac address in the following manner:
In a Win 7 or Win 8 CMD (DOS) window type the command "ipconfig /all” and then enter. What you are looking for is the Physical Address of your Ethernet or Wireless LAN adapter. It is a (12) digit hexadecimal number that is segmented into groups of six two digit values that are separated by dashes.
2. You can get the CID by downloading the "getcid.exe" executable from the following GTAC Download Server URL (You will need a WebKey account and password):
You can run the program from your download folder by double clicking on it in Windows Explorer. The CID is an encrypted version of the mac address which is also a (12) digit hexadecimal value in a single string. If you have multiple network adapters installed, you may see more than one CID. If you are unsure about which one to pick, use the first one on the list.
As always, I hope that this helps in some small way.

Case Study: NX and Teamcenter Software Solutions Help Solaris Design Innovative Public Transport Vehicles
Solaris Bus & Coach (Solaris) is a family enterprise founded and owned by Solange and Krzysztof Olszewski. The company is a Polish manufacturer of city buses, intercity and special coaches, as well as trolleybuses and trams, and holds a leading position in the European market. Since production began in 1996, the company has manufactured over 12,000 buses traveling on the roads of 29 countries.
Following the completion of the first contract for the supply of 72 buses to the municipal transport operator in Poznań, Solaris soon became the leader of the Polish low-floor city bus market and launched its products in foreign markets. The combination of the company owners’ vision and experience with the enthusiasm of a young crew resulted in excellent organization and working conditions that fostered continued success.
Today, Solaris is one of Europe‘s leading manufacturers of modern city transport vehicles. Its four factories situated in the Greater Poland region employ more than 2,300 staff, with 500 additional employees working at foreign locations.
One of the company‘s key business objectives is to develop state-of-the-art technologies that support increasingly greater levels of safety for drivers and passengers alike, while minimizing the adverse environmental impact of municipal transport vehicles.
