Summary

Manufacturers and their vendors are attempting to understand and implement “Industry 4.0.” With more NC manufacturing data becoming available daily, choosing the appropriate data, using it efficiently, and optimizing as many processes as possible are key to reducing costs and improving output.

NC simulation software relies on data to mimic manufacturing environments. The quality of input data influences the software’s ability to both identify potential problems in cutting processes, and to maximize NC program optimization. Software interoperability exists today that can connect CAD/CAM systems, PLM systems, tooling databases, cloud-based downloadable resources, and even physical CNC machines, providing comprehensive sources of data to create a complete “digital twin.” In this presentation, you will learn how companies can make better business decisions by simulating CNC machines in a robust virtual environment.

What you will learn:

  • Simulation software’s connectivity in the NC Manufacturing environment
  • What data to seek, what to avoid, and why
  • How simulation interoperability and “good” data help drive smart decisions
  • How physics-based software tools help with optimization and analysis
