ModuleWorks, the leading supplier of CAD/CAM components for 5-Axis machining and simulation, will be showing innovative real time simulation applications running on the CNC control at Euromold, the premium event for moldmaking and tooling, in Frankfurt (Hall 8, Booth E-112) from 3-6 December 2013.
ModuleWorks is at the forefront of CNC verification and simulation technology and has been working with two partners, Bosch Rexroth and ISG to bring this technology to the shopfloor on the CNC control.
ModuleWorks have been collaborating with CNC control manufacturers for some time to scale its simulation and verification technology to the CNC control. This has presented a number of challenges, in particular scaling to an environment with less memory and slower CPU technology than typical CAD/CAM workstations. The development team have overcome these issues and the end result allows G-Code programs to be verified on the control in real time, helping ensure a safe and right first time environment.
Rexroth IndraMotion MTX is the individually scalable CNC platform with an integrated PLC for machining and metal-forming applications. Excellent performance and comprehensive technology functions provide maximum productivity and flexibility. ModuleWorks and Rexroth have partnered to integrate real-time simulation onto the IndraMotion CNC control and will show live G-code simulation in action on the booth.
ModuleWorks have also been working with partner ISG to integrate simulation with the ISG-kernel software and provide an offline solution for controls using the ISG-kernel, a software solution, integrated on CNC controls for the programming of robots, tool, wood working and plasma and jet cutting machines as well as packing and textile machines.
At Euromold, ModuleWorks will also be previewing the latest version of the ModuleWorks components, 2013.12 with a range of new 5-Axis and Simulation features on show.
Jens Beissel, Marketing Manager for ModuleWorks comments, “It is always good to have our partners exhibit with us at these major trade shows. It shows how our component technology can be applied to provide solutions to real world manufacturing challenges. We’re delighted to have Bosch Rexroth and ISG with us at Euromold to show these innovative solutions”.
