Software 10 MoldMaking Technology —— JULY 2018 Simulation Software Reduces Debugging, Improves Cycle Times The 2017 NCSIMUL Solutions simulation software from Spring Technologies is designed to provide ease of use and automation for manufacturers to move toward Industry 4.0. New features include new probing strategies, support for turning after milling which enables one-click NC machine turnaround, cutting tool management with 3D definitions, one-click project update, project export and import, automatic performance analysis and automatic graphic detection of machining risk zones and less-than-optimal cutting conditions. NCSIMUL Machine is designed to provide realistic CNC simulation of the machining process. Users can simulate, verify, optimize and review programs based on the characteristics of the machine tools. Three-dimensional graphics help prevent machining crashes while algorithms and embedded process- based knowledge optimize cutting conditions. The software provides machin- ing verification in three steps: investigating and correcting coding errors, simulating to locate collisions and correct motion errors, and validating the part cut and result. The company says that the software can reduce debugging time, improve cycle times and process optimization efficiencies and prevent spindle collisions, tool breakage and scrap. Spring has also optimized its 4CAM add-on module so that it is more effi- cient and supports best practices with existing CAM products. The new version is designed to be a reliable, flexible, secured and automated tool for selecting which production resources to deploy. Spring Technologies Inc. / 617-401-2197 / Latest Software Has New Features for Deep-Hole Drilling Tebis America's Version 4.0 has enhanced features. For example, it can create area curves during part comparison to enable better detection and limitation of modified areas. The new function creates non-overlapping shifted surfaces from any curves at defined angles. In addition, users can automatically morph parts together with the most complex trimming curves in surface morphing. The new release fully retains geometry of the original curves and transfers the color properties 1-1. Also, users can include curves in surface morphing. In the latest Version 4.0, deep-hole drilling in the CAM area has better orientation to support automated calculation and machining. The software also comes with a new tool type that has an extended set of cutting data and special speeds, feed rates, cooling types and depth sections that deep-hole drilling requires. The latest issue of Version 4.0 has simpler toolpath definition in five-axis milling. Additionally, the software has improved function operating conve- nience. The release includes options for fast vector smoothing and for tilt- optimized calculation of tool paths. These features are available even without the manual definition of vectors.
