INDUSTRIE 2014: SPRING Technologies turns the spotlight on WYSIWYC®

The innovative, award-nominated solution will be demonstrated live
on booth 5-T77, Hall 5A – with NCSIMUL Machine 9.1

SPRING Technologies, vendor of solutions that enable manufacturers to optimize the use of their NC machines, will be back this year at the Industrie 2014 show, from March 31 to April 4 at the Parc des Expositions de Paris Nord/Vlilepinte on the northern edge of Paris.
Building tomorrow’s solutions”, is the theme of the 2014 edition of France’s marquee INDUSTRIE show. Since 2013 SPRING Technologies has been anticipating and offering a whole suite of instrumented, intelligent, and interconnected — in a word, SMART — solutions, based on its NCEXPERIENCE® vision.

As from March 31 the full set of modules that make up the NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS range will be showcased on booth 5-T77, Hall 5A. The show is an opportunity to discover and test tool management with NCSIMUL TOOL 2.4, DNC and real-time machine status with NCSIMUL DNC 8.21, and NCSIMUL Machine 9.1, the latest version of SPRING’s flagship software for machining simulation, complete with a range of new features including:
·         Simulation of composite material lay-up;
·         Full integration of the NCdoc document publishing module;
·         Automated functions for an enhanced user experience.
Centerpiece of the show will be the new 100% mobile solution for the shop floor: WYSIWYC® (What You See Is What You Cut), nominated from among 35 products in the Technology category for the Trophées de l’Innovation awards at Industrie Paris 2014, a prize that acknowledges a product or solution that creates value from a new technology. The nomination proves that for SPRING tomorrow is already here today.

Microsoft TechDays’14: on the Intel booth, SPRING Technologies showcases WYSIWYC® solution

One third of the Intel booth is dedicated to the "industry" vertical, represented by SPRING Technologies. Visitors can view the mobile and synchronized CNC machining simulation solution, WYSIWYC, embedded on a tablet PC, "Toughpad" from Panasonic dedicated to CNC operators, as well as on the latest 2in1 devices from Toshiba and Sony, more dedicated to Manufacturing engineering Dept. stakeholders.

"First-ever live demonstration of NCSIMUL Machine on a full HD tough-screen table. "Rendering is impressive. Interacting with NCSIMUL Machine is so easy and very smooth. With this wide touch screen, realistic and immersive CNC machining simulation takes on its full meaning." Says P. SOLIGNAC, Corporate Marketing Director

"With this broad range of hardware solutions, we can definitely state that, in the next generation of factory - Shop floor 4.0 -, everybody will have continuous access to their most precious applications, especially CNC technologies supporting the end-to-end machining process. By bringing analysis and modelling capability to the heart of the machining environments, we transform the way to interact with CNC machines. It's a work lifestyle on the verge of exploding that will generate considerable savings." Says P. SOLIGNAC, Corporate Marketing Director

“By joining the Intel® Software Partner program we were able to make maximum use of the multi-core and multithreading capabilities of the Intel i5/i7 processors. These performance factors differentiate NCSIMUL Machine, our flagship machining simulation solution, from our rivals. By enabling simultaneous collision detection, material removal and machine axis path calculations, we deliver substantial time savings. Because our solutions are compatible with the Intel range – processors, mother board, etc. - we have been able to port our applications directly to the Panasonic Toughpad, taking 3D machining simulation mainstream, whereas formerly it was used only in process planning departments, transforming the interaction between operator and machine. We are very proud to have been invited to demonstrate this technological breakthrough in the manufacturing sector, illustrating the manufacturing theme that is the backbone of the Microsoft TechDays”, explains Philippe Solignac, Corporate Marketing Director at SPRING Technologies.

Microsoft tech.days PARIS : SPRING Technologies to demonstrate WYSIWYC in INTEL booth

Representing the Manufacturing vertical on Intel's booth, SPRING will demonstrate its 2-in-1 synchronized simulation solution dedicated to CNC operators and shop-floor managers.

 Microsoft tech.days 2014

SPRING Technologies will demonstrate its 2-in-1 solution - WYSIWYC during the Microsoft tech.days 2014, held in Paris, from Feb, 11 to 13. This solution focuses on enhancing the machining process by integrating major innovations both in software and material handling; bringing to all workshop stakeholders full mobility thanks to the Panasonic Toughpad. This solution is based on Microsoft Windows 8 PRO touch capability. The blend of SPRING Technologies innovation and the unique user's experience with Microsoft Windows 8 PRO transforms the way CNC operators interact with CNC Machines. This realistic 3D simulation of the machining process (machine axes in motion, machined parts), simultaneous access to work instructions sheets, all being synchronized with the execution of the real CNC program fully displayed on the Panasonic Toughpad anywhere and everywhere.

Corporate Marketing Director, Philippe SOLIGNAC explains: "We are very proud to demonstrate WYSIWYC on Intel booth during the Microsoft tech.days. Thanks to our Intel Software Partner Program, we could very effectively take advantage of multi-core and multi-threading capabilities of Intel i5/i7 processors, key performance factors that allow us to ensure the technological leadership of our 3D machining simulation solution, NCSIMUL Machine. Indeed, collision detection, material removal and motion axes computation are now done simultaneously, allowing very significant gains in computation time. The compatibility of our solutions with the Intel range of components - processors, motherboard, etc.. - has also enabled us to run our applications directly onto the Panasonic Toughpad using Intel technology. This will democratize the use of 3D machining simulation in the shopfloor, hitherto reserved to the Manufacturing engineering Dpt. till now".
