Simulation Software Reduces Debugging, Improves Cycle Times

Westec 2017: Spring Technologies will demonstrate its NCSIMUL Solutions simulation software, highlighting the NCSIMUL Machine and NCSIMUL 4CAM modules.

Spring Technologies will demonstrate its NCSIMUL Solutions simulation software, highlighting the NCSIMUL Machine and NCSIMUL 4CAM modules. The 2017 version of the software is designed to provide ease of use, flexibility and automation for manufacturers to move towards Industry 4.0.

New features include new probing strategies, support for turning after milling which enables one-click NC machine turnaround, cutting tool management with 3D definitions, one-click project update, project export and import, automatic performance analysis, and automatic graphic detection of machining risk zones and less-than-optimal cutting conditions.

NCSIMUL Machine is designed to provide realistic CNC simulation of the machining process. Users can simulate, verify, optimize and review programs based on the characteristics of the machine tools. Three-dimensional graphics help prevent machining crashes while algorithms and embedded process-based knowledge optimize cutting conditions. The software provides machining verification in three steps: investigating and correcting coding errors, simulating to locate collisions and correct motion errors, and validating the part cut and result. The company says that the software can reduce debugging time, improve cycle times and process optimization efficiencies and prevent spindle collisions, tool breakage and scrap.

Spring has also optimized its 4CAM add-on module so that it is more efficient and supports best practices with existing CAM products. The new version is designed to be a reliable, flexible, secured and automated tool for selecting which production resources to deploy.
