SPRING Technologies to Highlight NCSIMUL MACHINE and NCSIMUL 4CAM



"SPRING Technologies will show EASTEC visitors how its NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS 10 all-in-one digital suite can provide productivity-enhancing benefits in their CNC programming functions," said a company spokesperson. In Booth 5522, the company is focusing on its most popular modules in the suite - NCSIMUL MACHINE and NCSIMUL 4CAM.

NCSIMUL MACHINE is an innovative CNC software solution providing realistic simulation of the machining process. Users can simulate, verify, optimize and review machine programs based on the actual characteristics of the machine tools. "Three-dimensional graphics help to avoid machining crashes while powerful algorithms and embedded process-based knowledge enable cutting conditions to be optimized," said the spokesperson. "NCSIMUL MACHINE verifies programs in three steps: investigates and corrects coding errors, simulates to locate collisions and correct motion errors and validates the program. The benefits are many, including reducing the time spent on debugging programs; preventing the costly risk of spindle collision, tool breakage and scrap; and improving cycle times and process optimization efficiencies."

SPRING Technologies has also addressed the increased use of composite materials in manufacturing by developing NCSIMUL Composites and welcomes inquiries about this product at EASTEC. New algorithms in NCSIMUL MACHINE enable the simulation of fiber lay-ups with the initial media, the already laid material and roller position taken into account. The software offers a realistic display of the complete 3-D model of the final part, selectively displaying each layer.

The NCSIMUL 4CAM module streamlines the existing CAM process to simplify CNC programming. It allows users to change, in one click, the target machine without any reprogramming efforts. From the main CAD/CAM program or machine controller G-code, NCSIMUL CAM generates programs for any machine tool that are verified and optimized without an external post-processor. It takes into account the kinematics of the machine tool, machine controller, cutting tools and conditions. "This efficiency results in lead-time reduction from prototype to production and in repurposing legacy programs to new machines," said the spokesperson.

"We are always excited about demonstrating NCSIMUL," said Silvère Proisy, North American Operations Director for SPRING Technologies. "The results are compelling, and it is fun to see the moment when programmers understand this new level of advancement and benefits it can bring for a nominal investment. For example, in North America, our customers on average save 90% of their machine set-up time, $500,000 a year in production time by optimizing feedrates, and more than $100,000 dollars annually on machine crash avoidance."
