Machineworks Software for online simulation checks interferences
UK – CNC simulation and verification software provider Machineworks has been working with Goodway Machine Corporation to develop advanced full machine simulation online.
Having completed a very successful integration of Machineworks libraries, Goodway has made full machine simulation available on its Fanuc controllers, the company reports. It is now available on a range of machine models including the GTZ-2600, GTH-2600, GS-4000, GV-100 & -1200, SW-32 & -20.
Goodway signed up for Machineworks looking to offer its customers the ability to simulate material removal in the full machine environment as well as to check for interferences.
Thanks to the new functionality Goodway's customers can reportedly achieve high-quality 3D animation simulating machining.
Collision avoidance and simulation functions are said to save preparation time and enhance overall safety of the process. The company also provides libraries for the new SVI (Simulation-Verification-Interference) software for PCs. Moreover, it offers off-line machine simulation, program verification and interference checking before operating in the real machine.
According to Machineworks, the Goodway G.LINC350 is leading the way and has achieved some the most advanced 3D graphics benefiting from its innovative and reliable software. Goodway is reportedly now making very efficient use of multiple core processing power thanks to the multi-threaded libraries.
