NCSIMUL Machine 9, the realistic, smart and high-performance CNC simulation experience, 
sets to elevate Malaysian industries with ‘smart machining’ solutions

MALAYSIA - March 25, 2013 – Sunway E-Systems (SES), a subsidiary of Sunway Group and SPRING Technologies, a France-based CNC software solutions vendor today announced that they have entered into a strategic partnership to distribute, resell, implement and support NCSIMUL Machine, the CNC realistic simulation module of NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS – a SPRING Technologies portfolio module - in Malaysia and in the ASEAN region.

NCSIMUL Machine is an affordable yet comprehensive CNC software solution for simulating, verifying, optimizing, and reviewing CNC machining programs. It can be seamlessly connected to CAD/CAM software. Using NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS modules, and especially NCSIMUL Machine, manufacturers are able to simulate the real context of a manufacturing environment taking into account the real characteristics of machines - i.e. kinematics, tools, rough material properties, tools availability, NC programs lifecycle and machine status monitoring. Such solutions enable industries to perform machine simulations that help correct all programing or manufacturing errors that could happen in real machine tool environment. Among the major benefits of NCSIMUL Machine, the solution enables customers to reduce testing time on machine and increase productivity rates, ensuring a secured and optimal use of production tools by preventing any risk of machine or part breakage.

“We are extremely excited to work with SPRING Technologies to bring their state-of-the art ‘NCSIMUL Machine 9’ machining software solution to the local industries. This next generation simulation software will equip Malaysian manufacturers especially from aerospace, oil & gas and medical sectors with end-to-end control of their machining process, integrating the creation of cutting tool libraries, the optimization of cutting conditions plus the ability to publish manufacturing data needed by operators in the workshop,” said Cheah Kok Hoong, CEO of Sunway E-Systems.

“With their solid product knowledge in industrial manufacturing and in-depth industry domain expertise both in Malaysia as well as ASEAN countries, we are confident that SES will help push our new solutions to local industries that want to set up a robust digital production process. This will definitely give Malaysian manufacturers a stronger competitive edge in the global marketplace,” said Gilles Battier, CEO of SPRING Technologies, during the official distributorship signing ceremony.

SPRING Technologies currently collaborates closely with reputable manufacturers in the aerospace and defence, transportation, energy, industrial equipment and medical sectors worldwide. Its major customers include Airbus, Hyundai, Alstom, Mitsubishi and Canon.

NCSIMUL Machine verifies NC programs in three steps: investigates and corrects coding errors, simulates to locate collisions and correct motion errors, and validates the NC program. This notable capability is also a valuable training tool for new employees as the virtual sessions are short, easy to understand, and eliminate errors.

Key Product Features of NCSIMUL Machine 9:
  • Enhanced user experience and performance with enriched 3D view which enables faster adoption and more robust interaction with the NC machine. 
  • Simplified ergonomics for faster, more democratic access to NC simulation. The interfaced, based on ribbon technology navigation, enables users to work more efficiently. Tasks are now accessed via tabs, each of which has groups that break down into tasks and sub-tasks. Implemented on touch screens, ribbon navigation significantly facilitates ultra-mobility
  • Tighter integration for a leaner digital manufacturing process (integrated tool libraries and cutting conditions, new CAM interfaces)

SPRING Technologies & NCSIMUL Machine 9 bring mobility & realistic simulation to the production environment

INDUSTRIE 2013 show in Lyon : an exclusive preview on booth 6-Y80

SPRING Technologies, vendor of solutions that optimize the use of complex NC machines, has chosen the upcoming Industrie show in Lyon, France to unveil its NCSIMUL Machine 9.

Visitors to booth 6-Y80 will be invited to discover the advantages of the new machining simulation solution − mobility, ergonomics and performance − demonstrated in the Windows 8 PRO environment.

NCEXPERIENCE”, an innovative philosophy pioneered by SPRING Technologies, progresses the production environment into the age of mobility, ensuring that adopters enjoy better and faster access to information and greater flexibility in the workshop, with vital and reliable support to managers or operators, helping them in their decision-making processes wherever they are working.

“At our latest User Club, CUST 2012 in November, our customers from every sector of manufacturing confirmed that mobility in the Workshop was becoming a key to competitive performance”, explains Gilles Battier, CEO of SPRING Technologies. “We knew that this was going to be a vector for productivity and, today, NCSIMUL Machine 9 addresses their needs.”

INDUSTRIE SHOW– April 16 – 19, 2013, LYON, FRANCE – BOOTH 6-Y80 

Announced as a world premiere in Paris on January 24, 2013, NCSIMUL Machine 9 is part of the NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS range that sets a new benchmark: “Smart Manufacturing‟.

Integrated, intelligent, and instrumented, it marks a decisive step in the world of production and delivers a new experience that SPRING Technologies’ users call ‟NCEXPERIENCE“.


At the INDUSTRIE show, the company will be featuring the ergonomics of NCSIMUL Machine 9, a machining simulation solution that has been redesigned and developed to make it accessible to all everywhere. From a workstation, a tablet or a touch PC, NCSIMUL Machine 9 makes tool path simulation more realistic and more immersive, integrating all machine, tool, and material parameters.


  • Enhanced user experience with an enriched 3D view, reinforcing adoption and interaction with the NC machine. In the Windows 8 PRO environment, NCSIMUL Machine Hub is a “tile” type application that provides one-click access to all available jobs. 
  • Streamlined ergonomics: the man-machine interface implements Microsoft Windows 8 PRO standards, notably ribbon mode capability. Other key features are intuitive, context-sensitive icons that facilitate use in touch mode. 
  • High-performance NC simulation: the result of a close partnership with Intel, NCSIMUL Machine 9 now implements algorithms that have been revised to make optimal use of multi-core processors and multithreading. Collision detection and material removal calculations are performed simultaneously, delivering quadrupled performance gains
Olivier Bellaton, Managing Director of SPRING Technologies concludes: “Today’s upcoming ‘Y generation’ programmers really want to join companies that operate at the leading edge of technology. They know this is what makes the difference in the market place. Today, manufacturers who do not factor ultra-mobility into every stage in their corporate process will find it harder to hire people with the right profile. Making human resources and technology work together is the key to building the factories of tomorrow ─ smart factories!
