Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence Production Software’s latest version of NCSIMUL includes the ability to execute tasks for existing projects on remote servers. Based on client-server scheduling architecture, the NCSIMUL machining module now includes automation functionality that provides wider control for jobs across devices by communicating with servers.

A dedicated graphical user interface enables tasks such as simulation, cut analysis and 3D movies to be performed on any device. This in turn enables users to follow the status of jobs and receive notifications when they are complete.

The NCSIMUL automation module is designed to ensure that the program sent to the shop floor is validated in its entirety by simulation. The system enables users to implement their own automation rules according to constraints and production priorities. Tasks are featured in a command file that can be easily customized to include user-specified parameters.

NCSIMUL Machine 2020.0, which detects NC programming errors and any potential collisions from the same NC code that drives the CNC machine, also contains enhancements to a variety of functions, including Probing and Optitool.

    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.

  • DNC: Faster And Better -- Part One

    Direct numerical control (DNC) should solve problems, not create them. If you under-stand how DNC works and follow the tips presented in this article, you can maximize its benefits and avoid headaches with your system. Part One of a two-part series.

  • Interpolating Curves

    The ability to import complex curves into CNCs promises to let shops finally get beyond old limitations imposed by contouring with linear interpolation. Faster and smoother cutting will be the result.
