NCSIMUL Simulation and Optimization Software

NCSIMUL simulation and optimization software from Hexagon Production Software, part of Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, will highlight its "digital twin" process models at EASTEC 2019. These models are designed to facilitate higher production rates and enhanced product quality.

A key element of the Industry 4.0 domain is creation of electronic digital twin models of product data and production processes. The virtual models correspond with the physical shop floor processes and allow manufacturing operations to be simulated, tested and altered to avert possible problems and downtime while also facilitating process optimization. Such cyber-physical systems bridge the gap between the real and virtual worlds.

NCSIMUL software works directly with ISO NC machining codes to simulate, verify and optimize machining programs based on specific parts, tooling and machine tool characteristics. Three-dimensional graphics help prevent crashes while complex algorithms and embedded process-based knowledge enable optimization of cutting conditions. "Use of the software reduces time spent debugging programs, eliminates risk of spindle collision, tool breakage and scrap and improves cycle times, process efficiencies and machine utilization," said a company spokesperson.

NCSIMUL provides machining verification in three steps: it investigates and corrects coding errors; simulates to detect collisions and correct motion errors; and validates the machining results. The software also monitors production transfers, tool management and machine status. "Overall, use of NCSIMUL software can help manufacturers meet delivery schedules, maintain aerospace-level product quality and reduce preparation times up to 70% while cutting costs by 20%," said the spokesperson.

Silvère Proisy, NCSIMUL North American Operations Manager, said, "We consider EASTEC our home show, and we look forward to showing how NCSIMUL enables manufacturers to increase the flexibility, speed and profitability of their operations by achieving complete and integrated mastery of Industry 4.0 manufacturing processes."
