CAM Simulation Software Speeds Turning-to-Milling Turnaround

Spring Technologies offers the latest version (2017) of its flagship software NCSIMUL Solutions and the NCSIMUL 4CAM add-on module.

Spring Technologies offers the latest version (2017) of its flagship software NCSIMUL Solutions and the NCSIMUL 4CAM add-on module. New probing strategies with checking and measurement of intermediary rough stocks enable automatic compensation, taking into account tool wear during machining.

Support for turning after milling enables one-click CNC machine turnaround, the company says. This feature provides automatic reprogramming for all CNC tool and machine changes, delivering flexibility and time savings for CAM programmers and workshop scheduling.

The Optitool option is built into NCSIMUL 4CAM 2017, enabling automation and optimization, especially all rapid motion, with graphic analysis for quick before/after comparison of improvements.

NCSIMUL Tool cutting tool management with 3D definitions, attachments and cutting conditions has been enriched, standardized and stored by material, machine and operation.

This version features one-click project update (phase calculation, simulation and ISO code restart, etc.) and phase export/import to exchange project information with other customer sites or external partners. This enhances inter-company collaboration with subcontractors, suppliers and customers, covering all or part of a project, enabling data exchange and securing the whole project.

Automatic performance analysis of the assembly for five-axis NC machines graphically detects machining risk zones and less-than-optimal cutting conditions.

Three new CAM programs have been added to the list of Workpackages available with NCSIMUL Solutions 2017, including Alphacam, Catia, Cimatron, Creo, Edgecam, Esprit, FeatureCAM, GibbsCAM, HyperMill Mastercam, NX, PowerMill and TopSolid’Cam.
