JEC COMPOSITES 2014: SPRING Technologies unveils “NCSIMUL Machine Composites”

Discover the new dedicated solution for the simulation of composite lay-up
Booth R12 hall 7.3

SPRING Technologies, vendor of solutions to enhance the productivity of CNC machines, invites you to visit its booth at JEC COMPOSITES 2014 from March 11 to 13 at the Parc des Expositions, Porte de Versailles, Paris. With its new offering, “NCSIMUL Machine Composites”, SPRING is extending its simulation offer to encompass composite lay-up.

Composites are a new growth opportunity for manufacturers, while at the same time addressing environmental issues and optimizing material costs. Yet, getting completely on top of these materials remains a challenge. This is why SPRING Technologies is delivering new, dedicated software solutions for professionals, backed up by project engineering support from its historic partner HACOMA.

Repurposing experience of ISO programming into composites

With NCSIMUL Machine 9.1, the latest version of its flagship machining simulation software, SPRING Technologies is bringing its expertise in CNC program simulation (supporting ISO and other codes) to the process of manufacturing parts in composite materials. The new “composites” functionalities enable smarter, more realistic, and more efficient lay-up simulation, supporting a wide range of manufacturing methods.

NCSIMUL Machine users can now simulate lay-up processes executed by Numerical Control machines (including robots), integrating technical publishing for documents such as work sheets, and automating numerous simulation process functions

* Fast validation of CAM programs for material lay-up

* Precise positioning of the fiber ribbon and alarm systems (program error detection, collisions, etc.)

* Dedicated 3D analysis tools: fiber thickness measurement, angles between fibers , radius of aperture

* All 3D information can be reused by the design office (the fiber lay-up envelope can be exported for re-use in CAD)

* Easy, efficient user interface
