Musashi – Japan chooses SPRING Technologies’ NCSIMUL Machine for simulating 5-Axis machining processes


The software processes 3x faster than the company’s previous simulation program

SPRING Technologies is pleased to announce that the engineering company Musashi, in Japan, has chosen to use NCSIMUL Machine software in its 5-axis operations. Before choosing NCSIMUL Machine, Musashi applied another NC simulation software package for the 5-axis machining process used to make turbine impellers. The operation took over 16 hours and the user interface froze frequently when rotating or zooming in on the 3D model during simulation. Musashi consequently set out to find a solution that would offer faster simulation, with smooth 3D model handling and easy settings.

“We wanted to run the simulations on our 5-axis impeller machining process faster. We were looking for an easy-to-use application and automated simulation software,” said Mr. Baba, manager of the Development Department.

At the time, Mr. Yagihashi, the president of Musashi, visited the Saeilo Japan booth at the JIMTOF 2012 tradeshow, where he first heard about NCSIMUL Machine.

“Our president visited many other booths to get an overview of the NC simulation products on the market. He asked to see NCSIMUL Machine, and was impressed by the great user-friendliness of NCSIMUL Machine interface.” said Baba.

Comparing NCSIMUL Machine with other NC simulation systems 

They checked six key features:
  1. Machine / axis motion (machine simulation, collision check) 
  2. NC program optimization (OptiPath®, auto-feed change) 
  3. Comparison features (Auto-diff, incomplete cutting check) 
  4. Multi-axis function (multi-access) 
  5. Tool setting (interface) 
  6. Machine (original MC environment )

ASCENTEC adopts NCSIMUL Machine from SPRING Technologies for its new 5-axis horizontal machining center

“High-speed manufacturing has been one of the greatest strengths of our business,” explains David Gilliat, Director of Manufacturing and Machining Technology

Ascentec Engineering was established in 2001 by a team of process and manufacturing engineerswith a solid background in electronics manufacturing processes. The founders brought with them experience in designing innovative and productivity-enhancing tools and fixtures that held up to the technology changes within the industry and gained an enviable reputation as an EMS industry leader for tooling solutions. In 2007, Ascentec began a Precision Machining division focused on providing quick-turn prototype and short-run production contract machining, along with integrated assembly services.

CHALLENGES
It’s an unhappy day indeed when a CNC machine crashes and it may take days, perhaps weeks, for the damage to be assessed and repaired. During that time, the shop staff not only loses the machine’s productive capacity but worries that it may not be possible to restore the machine to its previous ability to hold tight tolerances. It is bad enough when a vertical 3-axis CNC mill crashes, but when it happens to a 5-axis system that costs many times more, the downside is more serious. With this in mind, Ascentec Engineering began researching the market for advanced machine simulation software when it anticipated the installation of its first 5-axis horizontal machining center in 2011.
After narrowing the field to two simulation packages, the company selected NCSIMUL Machine from SPRING Technologies Inc. based on the software’s capabilities, ease of use and integration with its Mastercam CAD/CAM software from CNC
