Optimize Machine Utilization

Simulation for 5-axis machining is made easier with NCSIMUL Machine 2018.

SPRING Technologies, software provider for enhancing the efficiency of CNC machines, has released 2018 NCSIMUL. The latest release helps improve forecasts, reduce operating cycles, automate and make production reliable.

The following modules have been improved: Collision-free NCSIMUL MACHINE; CNC part transfer-4CAM; Operation cycle reduction-OPTITOOL; Automatic Verification-AUTOMATION; Program transfer-DNC; Machine status monitoring-MONITOR; Technical Sheets-PUBLISHER; immersive, collaborative and mobile 3-D-LAYER.

The main innovations of the release:

  • NCSIMUL OPTITOOL: This module can be added to SPRING's two key products-NCSIMUL MACHINE and NCSIMUL 4CAM. In NCSIMUL MACHINE, it provides existing G-code optimization, and the resulting rewritten program offers efficiency gains anywhere between 5 and 25%. It offers optimization of toolpaths (imported, converted or programmed) with NCSIMUL 4CAM. Turning, in addition to milling, is newly accounted for, giving the user the opportunity to better understand (their/the) tool wear rate. User experience is improved, and automation of before/after comparisons allows for faster analysis of the results at the machine.
  • NCSIMUL 4CAM: G-code creation is 8X faster. Analysis for traverse motions is improved and provides a comprehensive comparison between two available CNC machines in time and tool travel distance. This is an exclusive tool to facilitate a decision in the workshop between machines and gain optimal productivity.
  • NCSIMUL AUTOMATION: In NCSIMUL Machine, Automation module runs G-code validations automatically without user interaction. It provides a go/no-go gauge on CNC programs to the shop floor. Automation is improved with a better workflow based on XML development. The system can be placed on a company server and will process continuously job validations provided by the programming team.
  • NCSIMUL NCdoc: Dedicated to the automatic generation of datasheets in the workshop, the NCSIMUL 2018 release allows for the documentation of each operation, with more details and graphics, to improve communication and collaboration between the programmer and the shop floor. It is a smart assistant built to eliminate any possible misinterpretations.
