Software Features Automation Functionality
The NCSIMUL machining module now includes automation functionality that provides wider control for jobs across various devices by communicating with distant servers.
NCSIMUL from Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence is designed to streamline CNC programming and increase shop-floor flexibility. Based on client-server scheduling architecture, the NCSIMUL machining module now includes automation functionality that provides wider control for jobs across various devices by communicating with distant servers. A dedicated graphical user interface now allows tasks such as simulation, cut analysis and 3D movies to be performed on any device. This enables users to follow the status of jobs and receive notifications when they are complete.
The NCSIMUL Automation Module provides a number of significant benefits, including a guarantee that 100 percent of the program sent to the shop floor is validated by simulation. The system enables users to implement their own automation rules according to constraints and production priorities, and tasks are featured in a command file that can be easily customized to include user-specified parameters. This delivers additional assurance that program verification and simulation accurately follow requirements.
Both copper and graphite provide approximately the same end result, so it is important for a shop to consider the advantages and disadvantages of each material in order to discover what would work best in their shopfloor environment.
Improve efficiency and speed with hydraulic locking core pull cylinders.
Understanding the effects of injection on the core, slide and associated components is critical to selecting the best side-action methods for a given application. This first of two articles will discuss the basic physics underlying all side-actions.
