Sandvik launches Artificial Intelligence in CAM software together with Microsoft

Digital Manufacturing Solutions

Sandvik launches AI in the manufacturing software in alliance with Microsoft. A Manufacturing Copilot will be available when the next versions of the CAD/CAM software Cimatron, GibbsCAM and SigmaNEST are released in September.

The Manufacturing Copilot will enable a shift in the user experience with seamless
access to knowledge, which is not broadly accessible today, simplifying the user-
experience. Each Copilot has been trained on proprietary knowledge, unique to each
brand, such as product knowledge base, and prompt optimized during 12 months. The
Copilots will be further trained on technical support continuously and eventually connect
with each other to bring even more intelligence to the shop floor.

The Manufacturing Copilot is developed in collaboration with Microsoft Azure cloud and
AI services. This will provide customers a simple and more accessible experience with
24/7 intelligent customer assistance. The Copilot offers real-time updates and enables
informed choices. This is the first step in the AI roadmap to enhance the customer
experience.

The functionality will be available in September in connection to the next versions of the
market leading CAD/CAM solutions: Cimatron for die and mold, GibbsCAM for advanced
machining and SigmaNEST for sheet metal fabrication. Sandvik plans to integrate the
Manufacturing Copilot gradually into more manufacturing software in the portfolio, also
within metrology, enabling AI for its 400 000 users globally.

“We are rolling out new capability to help simplify manufacturing by decreasing the
learning curve, repetitive tasks and time spent on programming a job. It will simplify
onboarding as well for advanced users. We understand customers are facing challenges
adopting new technology, often due to disconnected platforms, production targets and
having higher demands upon a changing workforce. We will bend the curve on innovation
and enrich the customer experience,” said Magnus Malmström, Chief Technology Officer
at Sandvik Manufacturing Solutions.

By making manufacturing knowledge more accessible through natural language via
generative AI, Sandvik wants to support unleashing human creativity at every stage of
the process, from design to finished product, and reduce barriers between each process.
"Our technology vision is threefold," explains Malmström. "Initially, generative AI will
assist in component design by interpreting prompts to allow contextual queries and offer
suggestions based on in-house product knowledge bases. Next, the Manufacturing
Copilot will evolve into an intelligent user experience that cooperatively optimizes and
verifies processes by intelligent integration with our products. After that, we envision use
of alternative choice to use voice and command line interface driven manufacturing.”
In September, the first version will launch, and new functionality will be made available
gradually and in more manufacturing software solutions.
