SIMULATION SOFTWARE


New visualization solutions in metalcutting, digital manufacturing and CAE multiphysics help manufacturers build products faster and more accurately


Patrick Waurzyniak Senior Editor


Simulate twice, cut once


S


imulation in manufacturing is pervasive, with highly realistic 3D visualizations used to prove out manufacturing processes in advance of cutting metal, laying out a factory assembly line, or


even buying an expensive piece of manu- facturing equipment. Today’s manufacturers use highly ac-


curate NC-level machining simulations to view any potential metalcutting process problems, and the latest digital manufactur- ing simulations help engineers design and validate or commission assembly lines and entire factories—before they’re built. Along with these critical simulations, engineers and others involved throughout the prod-


uct development design cycle increasingly collaborate using CAE and multiphysics solutions to ensure the materials used will withstand thermal or fatigue stresses and last and meet standards for product safety. The push for simulation at all levels of


manufacturing gained some momentum recently with the creation of the Digital Manufacturing & Design Innovation Institute (DMDII; Chicago) by the US government. Part of the Obama Administration’s ef-


forts to help rebuild manufacturing, the DMDII aims to build new digital systems and meld the efforts of top manufacturing companies and software developers to find new and innovative digital manufacturing methodologies.


With Spring Tech- nologies’ NCSIMUL Machine, users get a realistic preview of the process and real-time 3D simulation of ma- chines and machining showing what is really cut and operations currently in progress— even on the shop floor with a shop-suitable smartpad.
