SPRING Technologies shows NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS for Intelligent CNC Machining at the VDI "Industrie 4.0" Conference

Simplified programming and flexible production in the Smart Factory

SPRING Technologies is participating in the upcoming "Industrie 4.0" conference of VDI (Verein Deutscher Ingenieure – Association of German Engineers) with an exhibition booth and live demo-point showcasing its innovative NCSIMUL software platform including the new module NCSIMUL CAM. The conference takes place on 27th and 28th of January 2016 in the Maritim Hotel in Düsseldorf/Germany and provides a platform for high-class knowledge sharing and the exchange of experiences on important aspects around the topic "Industry 4.0".
The term "Industry 4.0" describes the fourth industrial revolution and stands for a new generation of business organization embracing the entire value chain of the product lifecycle. According to the experts of VDI the Factory of the Future requires the availability of all relevant information in real time, connecting all assets involved in the value chain, as well as the possibility to deduce at any time from the data available the optimal value flow. Expert lectures, panel-discussions as well as the exhibition area within the VDI "Industry 4.0" Meeting will demonstrate to the visitors innovative solutions for the Smart Factory, concrete examples of use cases along the complete IoT - value chain from connectivity right up to simulation.
Maximizing Productivity, flexibility and collisions safety
With its unified software all-in-one platform NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS, SPRING Technologies supports manufacturers with CNC machines to achieve maximum flexibility, productivity and collisions safety in a smart factory environment.
According to Herbert Schönle, General Manager at SPRING Technologies and responsible for the DACH region, the topic "Industry 4.0" in the CAM process means primarily the following: "Manufacturing companies need to rely on seamless and interconnected process chains in order to achieve high-speed error-free programming, simulate machining operations and be able to produce with maximum flexibility within their shop floor."

Furthermore he adds: "With our NCSIMUL Solutions we can support manufacturers in automating their machining process, which can still be characterized as very labour intensive and prone to error, and maximize their production capacities on increasingly complex CNC machines. Programming errors are detected automatically -even before implemented- and set-up times reduced. Intelligent optimization means that we achieve great results in the reduction of machining time; at the same time we increase tool life and downtimes."
"With our latest release we make it possible for our users to switch their part machining between the different CNC machines without reprogramming and under consideration of the kinematics and CNC controller format of the machine. This is a revolution in NC Manufacturing, for our customers this means huge savings in costs and time, as well as maximum flexibility in their production", Herbert Schönle concludes.

NCdoc from SPRING Technologies automatically generates and manages comprehensive machining documentation


The NCdoc add-in for NCSIMUL MACHINE simulation software creates standard documents that reduce errors, aid communication

The NCdoc add-in component of NCSIMUL MACHINE simulation software from SPRING Technologies, Boston, MA, enables users to automatically document all elements of a machining process and thereby reduce errors and enhance communication within a manufacturing organization.
Using data from the final version of the CNC machining program as verified by NCSIMUL MACHINE, NCdoc generates a full machining report with data sheets for tooling and setup characteristics, details of the machining process, operational instructions and checklist information, and dimensional inspection checks including nominal values and associated tolerances.
The real-time nature of the documentation enables users to perform in-process checks. Clear presentation and easy access to accurate dimensional and operational information minimizes the possibility of errors resulting from misinterpretation or outdated data. Through the NCSIMUL Player Synchro feature, operators and other personnel can access instructional and other data sheets at the machine in synchronization with the current machining cycle.

The Value of NCSIMUL Machine in Higher Education

    This past month, SPRING Technologies participated in a 2-day NCSIMUL training organized and performed by re-seller, Cognisco Technologies Inc. which was hosted by the Wentworth Institute of Technology where educators of various academic institutions explored the benefits NCSIMUL can offer for manufacturing programs in trades and Higher Education.

    Due to NCSIMUL Machine's ease-of-use, power, and myriad of features, attendees expressed the flexibility that this unique virtual machining environment offers in a classroom setting. These factors include: accessibility; NCSIMUL is Windows/PC compatible and can be downloaded directly on a student's PC. It only requires a short training and students can conveniently write their own manual G-Code, test their CAM posted outputs and visualize projects in record time. NCSimul can also be supplied with optional 4 and 5 axis CNC machines, which allows more possibilities to have students extend and improve their programming skills without fear of damaging expensive equipment.

    During this training, educators discovered how NCSIMUL can save them hours in reviewing student's codes and grading projects, and as a result, how it lends them more time for teaching. This is owing to NCSIMUL’s capacity to instantly show syntax erros, to simulate the machining in one click to immediately locate any collisions and machining mishaps, and compare the machined part to the original part and spot design errors. Educators can have students build their own machines, tools libraries, and create a variety of exercises for them that range from simple to complex that will foster innovation in the classroom.

    For more information on how your precision machining academic program can benefit from NCSIMUL’s power and user friendliness, please directly contact
