Optimize Machining Processes through 3D Simulation

Keeping machines running on the shop floor is crucial, as idle machines mean wasted productivity and a loss in business opportunities. However, new products and engineering changes can cause delays while programmers work to ready the machines. DELMIA Fabrication helps manufacturers reduce this delay and significantly improve programmer and machine productivity by accelerating launches and changes, optimizing resources, and improving quality from stock to finished parts. DELMIA provides a single integrated software environment to facilitate the programming, simulation, and optimization of machining processes, from design to tool path. The 3D simulations provide users with a view of the entire machining process, including tool assembly, additive manufacturing, milling machining, the NC machine, and the controller.

As an integrated platform, no time is wasted on file transfers as all simulations share the same data. NC programmers can perform instant updates and simulate their impact on machining processes. Ensure fewer mistakes and false starts by validating processes, resources, and output before production begins. DELMIA Fabrication enables users to optimize manufacturing processes and minimize shop floor delays. Users can simulate the real behavior of complex machining tools, rapidly program multi-axis operations on CNC machines and robots while seeing the impact of changes with advanced simulation. Implement a standardized user interface for programming machines of all types, making it easier to incorporate new tools and simplifying deployment. This leads to a reduction of lead-time from design to production and programming hours by up to 80% for modified versions of existing parts and products. Most importantly, lay the foundation for continuous improvement by capturing and reusing best practices through templates, tool setups, and resource utilization. This results in validated, shop-proven programming that is easily recycled to save days to weeks of work.

Designed to make programming, simulating, and optimizing machining processes a breeze, DELMIA Machining provides a complete, integrated 3D simulation of the entire machining process, from tool assembly to tool path. As a result, instantly update programs, quickly see the impact of changes, and optimize machining processes for maximum efficiency and quality. By reducing machining time, improving quality and efficiency, and minimizing time to market, this versatile suite can help companies achieve significant cost savings and revenue growth.
