IoT-related Products NC Virtual Simulator

High-fidelity simulator digitizes the processes from product designing to trial machining, improving work efficiency and productivity.
NC Virtual Simulator makes it possible to check at designing stage the machining errors that could previously only be found at trial machining stage, thus reducing the time and effort required for machining trials.

Reduce machining trials with high-fidelity simulation

Diverse features allow you to validate machining programs, verify work instruction data, and analyze the flaws in the surface finish to help you identify and correct issues at trial machining stage.

Workpiece simulation, Machine simulation

Machining time is calculated accurately using digital position data that factors in smoothing, acceleration/deceleration, and servo response delay.
The surface geometry depicted in a higher resolution allows for safe and quick validation of machining programs.
You can check whether machine interference occurs during automatic operation using a machine model.
If interference is detected, the interfering components turn to the interference color to alert you.*2

Analysis simulation

①Color map display

The change in the speed, the acceleration rate, the speed difference between adjacent segments and other data is plotted as color map.
It helps you identify where a machining error occurs.

②Program link display

You can identify the corresponding block in the machining program by selecting a segment in the simulated surface. This makes it easy to check and correct the machining program block for the segment with a problem you detect in color map display.

Simulation comparison display

Simulation result is compared with previous result retained as history. You can check how machining result changes with different machining conditions such as NC parameters.

CAD model superimposition

Product CAD models (STEP/STL) can be loaded and superimposed with the workpiece simulation to check if there are missing machining processes.

①After running simulation, select the product CAD model file using “Select Product Model”.
