Mastercam Introduced Mill-Turn Module

To stay ahead in this competitive world, Industries has to differentiate themselves from others. Adapting to latest technologies will keep companies growing. As a result of technological advancement machine tool builders have combined the milling and turning into one solution called Mill Turn machine. But, to handle these kind of machines high amount of expertise is required.

CNC Software Inc, has developed a brand new machine environment in Mastercam that is designed specifically to address the capabilities and complexities of today’s, and tomorrows, Mill-Turn machine tools.

SIMTEK Joined hands with Saro Group & Organized Blood Donation Camp

As a part of ongoing commitment towards corporate social responsibilities, Sim Technologies Pvt Ltd joined hands with Saro Group of Companies and organized blood donation camp during India’s 67th Independence Day (15th Aug 2013).


Event was supported by Southern Agro Engine, SEM Enterprises and hospital staffs from Kanchi Kamoti Child Trust, Kanchipuram. It was 7th Annual event from Saro Group. More than 50 donors turned out on the day.From SIMTEK 14 donors donated blood.


Mr. Suresh Jadhav (MD – Simtek) says “We are happy to participate for the good cause and planning to conduct every year. I thank all the donors and my employees for the great support”.

Is Your Design Manufacturable?

Design for manufacturability (also known as DFM) is the general engineering art of designing products in such a way that they are easy to manufacture. DFM describes the process of designing or engineering a product in order to facilitate the manufacturing process in order to reduce its manufacturing costs.


From the preliminary concept design of the product until the manufacturing, product development engineers take their job step by step: product design, product testing/simulation, design review, product communication deliverable s and Releasing Drawings for manufacturing one after one. Moreover, if one of these steps, (for example, if the design review identifies design flaws) is longer than planned, the entire cycle is longer and then time-to-market increases. This affects the productivity of the company and the ability to deliver the product on time.


It is a fact that 80 % of the product cost comes from the design phase. This means that it is worth spending time and analysis to understand how this process could be optimized and taking manufacturability into consideration. DFM will allow potential problems to be fixed in the design phase which is the least expensive place to address them.


3D CAD software’s like SolidWorks has inbuilt DFM tools which helps designer to predict design flaws in subject to manufacturability. SolidWorks DFM xpress tools guides the designer step by step to rectify their design errors. The below model is checked with SolidWorks DFM xpress which identifies features, checks the appropriate rules for the manufacturing process, and lists Rules Failed and Rules Passed. DFM Xpress displays a message explaining the problem and highlights the problem area in the model.

Power Seminar at Selvam College of Technology

Thanks to ICT Academy of Tamilnadu for including the concept of power seminar.ICT Academy plays an active role in improving the communication between Industries and Institutes.


Power Seminar_Selvam College of EngineeringSelvam college of Engineering of Technology hosted power seminar on “Employability skills & Entrepreneurship” in association with ICT Academy of TamilNadu. SIM Technologies Pvt Ltd was one of the Invitee for the event Mr. Thambu Siva Subramanian – Marketing Manager addressed the final Year Mechanical Engineering Students on topic Employability Skills & Entrepreneurship specific to core Mechanical Industries. There was myth among students that IT gains like Infosys, Tech Mahindra, TCS, HCL, Wipro, L&T, Mahindra Satyam are only meant for CS, IT, ECE departments, students were educated that these mentioned IT Companies has engineering division specific to mechanical & Automobile.   CAD| CAM | CAE is the only domain where mechanical engineers can earn equivalent to IT Engineer and it is considered to be white collar Job platform for Mechanical Engineers.


Students were educated on certification specific to design, analysis, and manufacturing. Online certification program like Certified SolidWorks Associate , Mastercam Associate certification through Mastercam University which is an E-learning portal Read more »

Certification for Students on SolidWorks Analysis – (CSWSA FEA)

SIMTEK [Professional Channel partner for Dassault Systemes] recommend Certified SolidWorks Simulation Associate FEA certification for students and teachers to keep themselves apart from today’s competitive world. This exam mainly focuses on Finite Element Analysis theory. This certification indicates a foundation in and apprentice knowledge of demonstrating and understanding in the principles of stress analysis and the Finite Element Method (FEM). You should also have some decent understanding of basic Engineering Mechanics Statics, Finite Element Method/Finite Element Analysis Theory as well as strength of materials. You should understand basic SolidWorks competencies like applying material,       co-ordinate systems, etc.


There is a huge FEA opening in today’s market and companies are finding it difficult to find the qualified engineer with FEA knowledge. Hope CSWSA FEA Certification will help budding engineers to develop their skill sets in FEA right at the beginning of their career. Read more »
