Background
Sandvik manufactures tool systems and machinery for industrial and mining companies. Rhyme and Sandviks cooperation began when Sandvik spotted an opening in the market for providing small and mid-sized workshops the opportunity to increase the efficiency of their CNC machinery by the use of a digital tool. Computer Numerical Control is the automated control of machining tools, e.g. drills, boring tools, lathes and 3D printers by the use of a computer. A CNC machine can thus process a piece of material to meet specifications by following a coded programmed instruction without a manual operator. Sandvik performed market research resulting in the decision to create a mobile programming tool instead of a stationary option.

Solution
The resulting product, called Prism, is the first CAM application for iPad. It manages the entire cycle of machining — programming, simulation, post-processing and export to CNC-code. The real-time feedback of the 3D interface allows nearly anyone to understand CNC programming. Prism also opens a new era of smarter manufacturing by being the first product to offer Cookbooks for CNC machines, which allows machining experts to package and monetize their expertise, making the machining know-how of the industry available to anyone. The final marketed product is an integrated solution that reduces programming time by up to 94%. Visit site here
