Machine Works CNC simulation advances to be shown at EMO
The systems are said to provide simulation in real-time.
Machine Works Ltd, a supplier of CNC simulation and verification component software has announced that it will demonstrate its latest products at the EMO metalworking show in Hannover, Germany.
The company said it has been providing real-time simulation for many years, but its first integration was in the Okuma anti-crash system in 2005.
The company said its systems can perform real-time simulation for the most complex machining processes, with clash detection against the exact stock geometry. A collision avoidance system can be created by running the simulation slightly ahead of the machine to warn of an impending crash. The company added that it also has technologies that can run on controllers with very limited processing power.
