NC Machine Builder easily models resources with kinematics, such as NC machines, tool changers, pallet changers, and other peripheral devices for use and reuse in the entire machining process. NC Machine Builder provides a comprehensive NC machine definition including geometry, kinematics, controller, and technological information. The unique resources created with NC Machine Builder may be saved to the DELMIA Manufacturing Hub and used by process planners, NC programmers to create machining process plans, validate machining setups, detail machining operations, validate and optimize tool paths, perform post processing, and emulate controllers. NC Machine Builder can also import NC machines created in DELMIA D5 Virtual NC for use in V5 machining application.
Single user interface to completely define the NC Machines including geometry, forward and inverse kinematics, and attributes.
Support for technological information definition as required by NC detailing.
Ability to assign post processor and controller emulator information as required by post processing and simulation.
Validate the defined kinematics, travel limits, tool change positions and home positions using the "Jog" functionality.
Save the machine along with all of its attributes in the Manufacturing Hub for use/reuse of this unique resource in Machining Process Planning, NC Detailing, and Simulation.
Ability to reuse D5 Virtual NC machine geometry and kinematics.
Product Key Customer Benefits
A single comprehensive machine tool description with geometry, kinematics, and technological information: one definition of NC resource for use in the entire machining process including NC planning and detailing, simulation and verification, post processing and controller emulation, avoiding redundant machine tool data.
Easy validation of defined NC machine tools, its kinematics, travel limits, and home positions in the definition phase thanks to JOG capability.
