CNC Verification Software Optimizes Machining Results
The latest CAM simulation software release from Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence includes enhanced functionality, giving users the ability to execute tasks for existing projects on a remote server.
The latest CAM simulation software release from Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence includes enhanced functionality, giving users the ability to execute tasks for existing projects on a remote server. Based on client/server scheduler architecture, the latest version of NCSimul’s machining module includes automation functionality that gives users wider control of jobs on other devices by communicating with distant servers.
The system enables customers to implement their own automation rules according to constraints and production priorities. Tasks all feature in a command file, which also shows customizable parameters, meaning program verification and simulation accurately follows requirements. It also maximizes license usage, so if a manufacturer has one license, they can use this module to postpone tasks with the scheduler.
The NCSimul Machine 2020.0, which detects NC programming errors and any potential collisions from the same NC code that drives the CNC machine, also contains enhancements to a variety of functions, including probing and optitool. Specific simulation parameters can be set for probing simulation during decoding. There is also the option to simplify the tool shape to reduce calculation times, default values can be defined into preferences, and interactive comments and ACNU functions can define any elements to ignore during the calculation of probing contact points. The latest version features an improvement of chips flow computation and display on each increment, and the flow can also be used for optimization as a limitation parameter.
The latest release of NCSimul’s flexible CNC programming module, 4CAM, also includes a number of items of new and enhanced functionality. It also imports multiple files in one process for each group of operations, and the default settings are defined into preferences. Other enhancements include options within scraps management for computing intermediate stock and cut analysis, the ability to write an interactive comment in the program, defining an origin on rotary axes and managing tool sisters by writing a tool change code in the program for selected operations.
