The solution for automated deburring with Siemens NX: the Automated Deburring Module from SWMS in use. Our video shows the application of the deburring strategy on a machine tool Spinner U-1520 with Heidenhain ITNC 530. In addition to the full support of 5-axis simultaneous movements, the particularly uniform shape of the deburring chamfer is clearly recognizable.

The customer has the right to demand a reduction of the purchase price or a withdrawal from the contract in case of definite failure of rework or replacement.
Warranty claims are to be asserted immediately and in writing, however no later than within the course of one year after the delivery date of the software. This notification must contain a detailed description of the defect. The delivery of an update or upgrade does not result in an extension of the warranty period for the overall system. After receipt of the complaint, SWMS will either give information on troubleshooting or take appropriate measures in order to remove the defect, e.g. transmission of data carriers or information sheets, which will enable the customer to eliminate the error.
Warranty is excluded, if the customer if the customer does not comply with the above paragraph 4.1 of its investigation and reprimand. If changes are made to the software by a third party or customer then the warranty is fully voided unless the customer can prove that the defect is not due to the change.

Liability in the case of slight negligence (inter alia consequential damages) is limited to the amount of a providing fee for each claim.
A contributory negligence shall be attributed to the customer (e.g. insufficient data backup).
The above mentioned limitations of liability do not apply, if SWMS is liable according to product liability law. SWMS is obliged to inspect instructions and documents for mistakes only if subject to an additional agreement.
If nothing to the contrary has been agreed upon, payments are to be settled immediately after receipt of the invoice without deduction.

SWMS is entitled to utilize the reserved goods and to offset corresponding sales proceeds against any open claims resulting from the business relation.
