SPRING Technologies will soon release a new software to simulate complex CNC machines in an effort to make their monitoring, analysis and control easier and more robust.
The NCSIMUL Machine 9 is software designed to ease the transition to “smart factory” processes through its ease of use, integrated data libraries and real-time updates for operators, according to SPRING Technologies. NCSIMUL Machine 9 provides the operator with touch-screen controls based on ribbon navigation, allowing the user to multitask on multiple machine control tabs at once. Users can develop multiple projects, copy machining operations between them, develop databases and checklists, and view simulated machining operations.
NCSIMUL Machine 9 is intended for use with other standard and third-party applications and software, allowing integration and ease of use with established system controls.
“[NCSIMUL Machine 9] offers users a unique experience, based on state-of-the-art technological standards, in terms of both ergonomics and ultra-mobility,” SPRING Technologies Corporate Marketing Director Philippe Solignac said in a statement. “Realistic simulation, integrating all machine, tool and material parameters quickly becomes a day-to-day part of a manufacturer’s lifestyle. Corporate-wide deployment makes it available and accessible at all times, from a CAM workstation right through to the NC operator next to the machine on the shop floor or even to anyone using a touch-sensitive tablet anywhere in the company. In fact, at our last User Club conference, we showed users that ultra-mobile operators were already for real.”
