CNC vendor NUM offers a ready-integrated tool head for plasma, laser and waterjet cutting applications as well as a 3D simulation package that combines workpiece simulation with collision monitoring.

The head is designed with the versatility of movement and stiffness required to implement precision cutting motion. The lightweight head can be assembled easily on existing CNC machines in plasma- and waterjet-cutting operations, often without additional mechanical adaptation, the company says. This extends the capability of machinery from 2D to 3D applications, with precise, multi-axis interpolation.

The company also offers a 3D simulation package that combines workpiece simulation with collision monitoring and other features. Designated True 3D, the software tool is a general-purpose version of the company’s 3D simulator for multi-axis grinding applications. The tool not only emulates, but it simulates the actual CNC commands, and subsequently provides an output as close as possible to the actual machined parts. It allows users to virtually prototype and optimize the entire machining process, improving machine productivity, reducing tool wear and completing projects faster.
