Moduleworks, provider of CAD/CAM/CNC software components for multi-axis machining and simulation, will showcase the company’s latest advances of CNC Collision Avoidance System (CAS) and Shop-Floor Programming technology at AMB.

An increasing number of manufacturers acknowledge the growing importance of real-time collision avoidance directly on the CNC control. According to Moduleworks, CAS is designed for fast and seamless integration into CNC systems for cost-effective and flexible project implementation on the latest controllers. The software is connected to the CNC control’s look-ahead buffer. This allows it to receive data directly from the NC interpolator to eliminate the need for parser maintenance and provide a realistic simulation that checks for collisions in real-time. As such, the software provides full-scene verification and clash detection during the milling and turning process in all operating modes, including the jog mode. This, in turn, minimises the risk of expensive machine damage and downtime and, at the same time, optimises the machining process.

Also, the toolpaths in Moduleworks’s Shop-Floor Programming technology have been optimised for CNC controls and are delivered as standard components to provide a fast and easy way to extend production machines with advanced cycles for adaptive roughing and turn-milling as well as features such as deburring.
