Version 9 of ANCA’s CIM3D or CIMulator3D tool grinding simulation software has an upgraded interface with fresh colors and icons for easier use. CIM3D V9 enables customization based on regularly-used features and off-line verification of background calculations, increasing machine productivity. It also enables those working from home to perform programming remotely.
The new version offers clearer visualization with a customizable timeline panel: a central dashboard speeding tool analysis. New tool programs can be verified for size, shape, machine clearance, cycle time estimates and more. Users can determine protrusion length, estimate cycle times, increment position with the mouse’s scrolling function and more.
CAD/CAM features can be key to realizing effective High Speed Machining.
The shift from vertical to horizontal machining was even more expensive than this shop anticipated. It was also more valuable. Most of the shop’s machining centers are HMCs now—here’s why.
The many rules of programming CNC cutter radius compensation can make machining problems difficult to diagnose and correct.
