Complex machining risks big mistakes and even
Today’s manufacturers are under constant pressure to find new ways to reduce production costs. Increasing spindle utilization and eliminating, machining mistakes is a high priority. Making their challenge that much harder, today’s machine tools, workpieces and cutting tools are more complex than ever. As a result, it is easier than ever to make mistakes and increasingly more expensive to fix them.
Utilizing the Virtual Machining Technology of SIMNC, manufacturers can offer their customers a CNC Machine Simulator that is a fast and inexpensive tool for conducting dry-runs of programs and for correcting errors before they result in expensive mistakes. Using Virtual Machining, one can reduce the real machine time required to prove out G-code programs and gain 20 percent or more in machine tool productivity. Machine tool builders, control manufacturers, software companies and others with unique machine simulation needs can use the SIMNC kernel as a toolkit to build real-time, on-line or off-line solutions tailored to their individual needs.
