NCSIMUL 4CAM Wins German INTEC Award of 2017

Software for flexible CNC machining awarded to contribution of digitalization in mechanical engineering
Wetzlar – March 9, 2017
Great news for the SPRING Technologies team: The Company, which  participated at the Machine Trade Fair INTEC for the first time, won the INTEC prize 2017 in the Enterprises of up to 100 employees Category for its future-oriented NC solution NCSIMUL 4CAM. With this software, existing NC programs can be converted to various machines with different controllers with just a few clicks, without the previously necessary reprogramming and manual reworking. The generated NC program is directly verified and optimized. As a result, the software provider promises an enormous time saving in programming, the possibility of flexible machine switches and thus increased productivity in NC production with continuous and digital processes.
