Modern Machine Shop
Spring Technologies will showcase a variety of products designed to enhance CNC machine productivity, including NCSimul 8.9, Optitool, NCDoc, and Postpro.
NCSimul 8.9 is a machine simulation, verification and optimization program. According to the company, 3D graphics help avoid crashes, while algorithms and embedded, process-based know-how enables users to optimize cutting conditions and standardize shopfloor documentation. It verifies NC programs in three steps: investigating and correcting coding areas, simulating to locate and correct motion errors, and validating the part program.
Optitool is designed to analyze cutting conditions, reduce “air cutting,” optimize feed rates and help users create better cutting strategies. The program is said to reduce cycle times, enhance cutting operations and speed the development of new G-code files for future applications.
NCDoc enables users to quickly edit and publish technical documentation, including customizable inspection reports, reference libraries, and collaborative production content for customers, staff and vendors with encapsulated movies.
Postpro is a library of more than 1,000 NC postprocessors for CNCs models from Fanuc, Siemens, NUM, Heidenhain, Mazak, DMG, Fidia and others.
