Prog & Control Engineering
Program and Control Engineering provides a suite of solutions that allow the user to virtually program, validate and simulate manufacturing systems for the virtual commissioning of production facilities.
DELMIA NC Machine Simulation
Simulation of NC Machine Tools and Material Removal
DELMIA NC Machine Simulation (NMS) provides the NC programmer with the ability to perform virtual tool path program validation. Programmers are able to simulate machine tool motion, along with material removal, using either the pre-post processed tool path or post processed ISO code. DELMIA NC Machine Simulation aids the NC programmer in delivering high quality, optimized, tool path programs by finding potentially damaging collisions or excessive non-value-added machine tool motion.
DELMIA NC Machine Simulation provides a virtual 3D environment for validating and optimizing NC tool path programs in the context of the manufacturing setting.
- Automatic mounting of NC assembly and machine setup validation
- Integrated and simultaneous simulation of NC machine motions and material removal based on tool paths
- Validation of the entire manufacturing program or a single machining operation
- Collision detection
- Checking travel limits of the machine tools
- Accurate cycle time calculation
Automatic mounting of NC assembly and machine setup validationOne step user interaction to position the NC Assembly at the right location on the NC Machine and subsequent reach-ability analysis helps easy validation of the machining setup.
Integrated and simultaneous simulation of NC machine motions and material removal based on tool pathsNC Machine motion based on tool paths helps the NC Programmer to validate that the programmed tool path is correct. It helps the user to identify any erroneous motion upfront, leading to generation of error free programs. It also enables the user to check and validate the quality of material removal.
Validation of the entire manufacturing program or a single machining operationThe entire program or a selected operation of interest can be simulated as soon as it is defined leading to enhanced productivity.
Collision detectionCollisions in the machining environment caused due to machine motion can be detected and corrective actions taken, helping users to generate error free programs upfront.
Checking travel limits of the machine toolsAxes limits can be optionally displayed during simulation, giving feedback to the user that the selected NC Machine will be able to complete the program without exceeding limits.
Accurate cycle time calculationCycle times based on speeds and feeds defined on individual machine axes are displayed, giving the NC Programmer an estimate of the time taken to machine the part.
