With rising competition and costs in manufacturing, companies are looking for ways to minimize delays and waste throughout the process. Utilizing software to validate NC programs is standard practice in manufacturing. Incorporating data from your tools and machines in simulation and optimization software is the key to building accurate timelines and forecasts to streamline the manufacturing processes. In this presentation, attendees will learn how to:
- Improve the quality of digital simulation and optimization by utilizing tool and machine data.
- Simulate and verify NC programs to prevent collisions or mistakes prior to running a part on the machine for the first time.
- Use optimization software to identify areas of improvement to reduce loads on the machine and extend tool life.
- Utilize data from CNC machines to verify that programs will run on the machine the way they did in simulation.
