Vero Software and Spring Technologies recently celebrated the first anniversary of their partnership, which resulted in the integration of Vero’s Edgecam CAM system and Spring Technologies’ NCSIMUL machining simulation software. The integration enables manufacturers to simply, yet fully, simulate how NC programs will perform before they start cutting actual workpieces on CNC machines. With one mouse click, relevant NC code is transferred from the Edgecam to NCSIMUL. The NC code produced by Edgecam is then verified through an inspection of the program and a full simulation of the actual tool path. The simulation prevents expensive collisions, optimizes the cutting process and reduces cycle times, according to the companies.
