A numerical chain links automatically from the engineer- ing department to the shop floor, providing users with a decision-making tool. The Optitool module can be added to NCSIMUL Machine, where it improves existing G-code to increase efficiency, and NCSIMUL 4CAM, where it improves imported, converted and programmed tool- paths. It enables users to better understand tool wear rate by accounting for turning and milling. Automation of before-and-after comparisons results in improved analysis. The 4CAM module increases the speed of G-code creation. Analysis of traverse motions compares time and tool travel distance between two CNC machines. The Automation modules runs G-code validations automatically and provides a go/no-go gage on CNC programs. It improves workflow based on XML devel- opment. The NCdoc module generates datasheets automatically and enables the documentation of each operation. With expanded details and graphics, it improves communication. | Spring Technologies Inc. | East, Level 3, Booth 133267
