1. What’s new in V5-6R2018
CATIA V5-6R2018 enhances 21 products and enriches its portfolio with 2 new products. Stamping Die Face Design enables design die surfaces in the context of stamping die tooling design process and Composites Forming Part accelerates the design of formed Composites parts by validating the forming manufacturing process. There is one common goal for these 2 products: to provide user with process oriented application without needing to be an expert.
The 91 extended highlights include: improved usability & productivity with the support of ISO 2553:2013 standard which enriches definition of welding symbols; ready to use PLM Business process like defeature to remove logos, chamfer with hold curve, diablo with faces to kept, silhouette with multiple inputs, healing and remove face; leap forward in Lifelike experience in CATIA Imagine & Shape with new capabilities in manipulation laws, matching and selection.
We will come back with details regarding specific added functionality and on the new products.
DELMIA V5-6R2018 improves its adaptive concentric milling, through several enhancements in pocketing operation with concentric strategy reducing programming time and machining time. AS in V5-6R2017, the library of Robots had been enriched with 70 new models. Work Instruction Composer has added multiple enhancements which increases performance (e.g. saving 60-80% time in Customer Revision and Re-use process).
MAGIC Engineering team can helps you with more details on new functionalities available in V5-6R2018.

Use Learning to Engage Your Team – A motivated team can makes a difference in terms of engagement, reliability and results
You can find at below link a very interesting article from Business Harvard Review which shows that on-the-job learning is the key to keeping people motivated. When managers understand that, and understand where the people they manage are on their individual learning curve — the low end, the sweet spot, or the high end — employees are engaged, productive, and innovative.

4. Mold Tooling & Machining Seminar in 20th of September
Is already a tradition for MAGIC Engineering to organize in each autumn a Mold and NC dedicated event in Brasov.
In this spirit, on 20th of September 2018 we will organize an event dedicated mainly to new user experience and benefits in using Dassault Systemes new business platform called 3DExperience, now at R2018x release. With specific Apps, all the mold developing process is covered starting from molded part geometry preparation to specific simulations, tooling design and manufacturing.  We will come back with more details regarding this event.
