Software Offers Comprehensive Control of Machining Process

SPRING Technologies, developer of software for CNC machining simulation and optimizing CAM programs, will demonstrate its flagship NCSIMUL 2017 package. "The latest 2017 version of NCSIMUL sets a new benchmark for comprehensive control of the machining process, providing ease of use, flexibility and automation for manufacturers to move towards Industry 4.0," said a company spokesperson. The two main modules, NCSIMUL MACHINE and NCSIMUL 4CAM, will be highlighted, along with NCSIMUL OPTITOOL.

Among the new features of NCSIMUL 2017 and the NCSIMUL 4CAM module are: new probing strategies; support for turning after milling, for one-click NC machine turnaround; cutting tool management with 3-D definitions; one-click project update; project export/import; automatic performance analysis; automatic graphic detection of machining risk zones and less than optimal cutting conditions, and more. The improvements are contained in the NCSIMUL OPTITOOL module of NCSIMUL MACHINE and include algorithms that transform working feedrates into rapid feedrates or specified maximum feedrates for approach and retract motions in both circular and linear toolpaths. The software's air cutting optimization mode can enable users to reduce machining times by 4 - 25% by minimizing air-cutting motions and optimizing entry and exit feedrates. This results in immediate and automatic savings on every part produced, even on existing programs.

Simple, one-click implementation requires no alteration to the toolpath or existing CAM system. The software is effective in FANUC, Heidenhain, Siemens and any other standard CNC control languages. NCISMUL OPTITOOL also enables users to test different optimization strategies and provides graphic analysis comparing initial and optimized feedrates. Further, this optimization can be applied (repeated) on every machined part currently in process, multiplying the gains.
