SPRING Technologies shows intelligent CNC Machining Solutions at METAV 2016

Streamline your CNC programming with the new module NCSIMUL CAM

SPRING Technologies, worldwide leader in delivering dedicated CNC software solutions to enable the optimal use of CNC machines, will be demonstrating its innovative software platform NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS at METAV 2016, the international tradeshow for metalworking technologies, which will take place at Düsseldorf in Germany from February 23rd to 27th 2016. The focal point of SPRING Technologies’ presentation at METAV will be its latest module, NCSIMUL CAM. This cutting-edge all-in-one CNC programming solution optimizes existing CAM process and enables a simplified, bidirectional End-to-End-Machining Process.
As an innovative example for the realization of Industry 4.0, SPRING Technologies will showcase its NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS platform with the new NCSIMUL CAM, on its own booth hall 14 - D122, as well as at the INNOVATION PARK of Industry Arena – hall 14 booth A107.
NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS for an optimal use of CNC machines

NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS 10 – A simple and unified platform
The software all-in-one platform provides a complete, integrated control of the entire end-to-end machining process in real time, including NC programming, machine simulation, optimization, tool management, program transfer and real-time monitoring of the machine status.

With the new revolutionary module NCSIMUL CAM, enriching the existing CAM process, CNC machines can be run 100% collision-free from the first second – without the need of any external post-processor. It allows to change, in one click, the target machine, without any CAM CNC reprogramming, whatever the type and complexity of the machine, its kinematics and the type of controller, providing unparalleled flexibility on the shop floor.

Where? Messe Düsseldorf, SPRING booth- hall 14 booth D122 - and demonstration point at Innovation Park of Industry Arena - hall 14 booth A107.

SPRING Technologies shows NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS for Intelligent CNC Machining at the VDI "Industrie 4.0" Conference

Simplified programming and flexible production in the Smart Factory

SPRING Technologies is participating in the upcoming "Industrie 4.0" conference of VDI (Verein Deutscher Ingenieure – Association of German Engineers) with an exhibition booth and live demo-point showcasing its innovative NCSIMUL software platform including the new module NCSIMUL CAM. The conference takes place on 27th and 28th of January 2016 in the Maritim Hotel in Düsseldorf/Germany and provides a platform for high-class knowledge sharing and the exchange of experiences on important aspects around the topic "Industry 4.0".
The term "Industry 4.0" describes the fourth industrial revolution and stands for a new generation of business organization embracing the entire value chain of the product lifecycle. According to the experts of VDI the Factory of the Future requires the availability of all relevant information in real time, connecting all assets involved in the value chain, as well as the possibility to deduce at any time from the data available the optimal value flow. Expert lectures, panel-discussions as well as the exhibition area within the VDI "Industry 4.0" Meeting will demonstrate to the visitors innovative solutions for the Smart Factory, concrete examples of use cases along the complete IoT - value chain from connectivity right up to simulation.
Maximizing Productivity, flexibility and collisions safety
With its unified software all-in-one platform NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS, SPRING Technologies supports manufacturers with CNC machines to achieve maximum flexibility, productivity and collisions safety in a smart factory environment.
According to Herbert Schönle, General Manager at SPRING Technologies and responsible for the DACH region, the topic "Industry 4.0" in the CAM process means primarily the following: "Manufacturing companies need to rely on seamless and interconnected process chains in order to achieve high-speed error-free programming, simulate machining operations and be able to produce with maximum flexibility within their shop floor."

Furthermore he adds: "With our NCSIMUL Solutions we can support manufacturers in automating their machining process, which can still be characterized as very labour intensive and prone to error, and maximize their production capacities on increasingly complex CNC machines. Programming errors are detected automatically -even before implemented- and set-up times reduced. Intelligent optimization means that we achieve great results in the reduction of machining time; at the same time we increase tool life and downtimes."
"With our latest release we make it possible for our users to switch their part machining between the different CNC machines without reprogramming and under consideration of the kinematics and CNC controller format of the machine. This is a revolution in NC Manufacturing, for our customers this means huge savings in costs and time, as well as maximum flexibility in their production", Herbert Schönle concludes.

NCdoc from SPRING Technologies automatically generates and manages comprehensive machining documentation


The NCdoc add-in for NCSIMUL MACHINE simulation software creates standard documents that reduce errors, aid communication

The NCdoc add-in component of NCSIMUL MACHINE simulation software from SPRING Technologies, Boston, MA, enables users to automatically document all elements of a machining process and thereby reduce errors and enhance communication within a manufacturing organization.
Using data from the final version of the CNC machining program as verified by NCSIMUL MACHINE, NCdoc generates a full machining report with data sheets for tooling and setup characteristics, details of the machining process, operational instructions and checklist information, and dimensional inspection checks including nominal values and associated tolerances.
The real-time nature of the documentation enables users to perform in-process checks. Clear presentation and easy access to accurate dimensional and operational information minimizes the possibility of errors resulting from misinterpretation or outdated data. Through the NCSIMUL Player Synchro feature, operators and other personnel can access instructional and other data sheets at the machine in synchronization with the current machining cycle.
