NCsimul Machine simulation and optimization software from Spring Technologies helps aerospace and other manufacturers create “digital twin” process models that facilitate fulfillment of customer demands for higher production rates and unwavering product quality. The software works directly with ISO NC machining codes to simulate, verify and optimize machining programs based on specific parts, tooling and machine tool characteristics. 3D graphics are said to prevent crashes while complex algorithms and embedded process-based knowledge enable optimization of cutting conditions. According to the company, use of the software reduces time spent debugging programs, eliminates risk of spindle collision, tool breakage and scrap, and improves cycle times, process efficiencies and machine utilization.

The software provides machining verification in three steps: it investigates and corrects coding errors, simulates to detect collisions and correct motion errors and validates the machining results. The software also monitors production transfers, tool management and machine status. Overall, it is said that use of the software help manufacturers meet delivery schedules, maintain product quality and reduce preparation times by as much as 70 percent while cutting costs by 20 percent.
