SPRING Technologies puts its faith in hyper-connection

At EMO 2013, SPRING Technologies will be showcasing its NCSIMUL Solutions implementation on a fully-rugged Panasonic touch tablet, connected to a 5-axis Fanuc Robodrill. NCSIMUL Player 9, the new version of the NCSIMUL Machine 9 machining software, is now implemented on Panasonic’s Toughpad FZ-G1: it enables simulations to be monitored on screen and provides access to all the relevant technical documentation in a real machining context. Operators in the workshop environment can now access a realistic 3D simulation of their machine tools, tool libraries and their documentation (instruction sheets, etc.), on a fully stand-alone rugged and ergonomic touch tablet. The tablet-based player offers a totally original function via a TCP/IP connection and a fully touch-driven interaction: on-screen monitoring of machine operation. When a machine stops, the instruction sheet is displayed automatically on the tablet. This is no longer just NC simulation but a digital representation of the actual operation. Today, an operator can view the simulation on one side of the screen and the documentation on the other, and have it all at his fingertips, at any on-site location.

In this way, the package brings operators and any other stakeholders in the machining process a completely new interactive, collaborative and mobile experience of the NC program, linked to the machining simulation.
