Generative Design used to CNC CNC Machines
Toshulin Optimizing Machines for Making Machines
Typically generative design is used to 3D print high performance parts for aerospace, automotive and, bicycles. Components that look like bird bones with organic flowing forms, but most metal manufacturing is undertaken with casting, welding and machining where those geometries are not always viable, where flat surfaces and hard edges are the norm.
CNC manufacturer Toshulin used Autodesk Generative Design to reduce the mass of a large component while improving accuracy and performance of their vertical turning lathes using subtractive manufacturing constraints in the design optimization process.
Integrating computational design methodologies into traditional manufacturing processes unlocks the value of these design tools without the risk or cost of adopting a new manufacturing technology such as additive manufacturing.
TOSHULIN specializes in the design and manufacture of advanced CNC vertical turning lathes.
Their machines are specifically designed for the machining of medium to large-sized metal workpieces with a strong focus on meeting the highest customer requirements and ensuring the highest quality of their machines.
TOSHULIN used a combination of standard production methods such as CNC machining and welding along with Autodesk Generative Design to create relatively large components that are 100kg lighter so more efficient and accurate.
