 Press Releases

  • Boston, MA January 2018 – SPRING Technologies, developer of software for CNC machining simulation and optimizing CAM programs, will demonstrate its flagship NCSIMUL package at AeroDef 2018, Booth 1022. The conference and exhibits event will span March 26 - 29 in Long Beach, California. The latest version of NCSIMUL sets a new benchmark for comprehensive control of the machining process, providing ease of use, flexibility and automation for manufacturers to move towards Industry 4.0. The two main modules, NCSIMUL MACHINE and NCSIMUL 4CAM will be highlighted at the event, along with NCSIMUL OPTITOOL.

    “Without compromising the integrity of the shop floor, our software has the ability to streamline capabilities that work to complete and optimize any project overnight using automated processes,” said Silvère Proisy, North American Operations Director for SPRING Technologies. “Of particular interest to aerospace OEMs and its suppliers, this approach provides room for more innovation during the day and without risking thousands of dollars in equipment and machinery. Flexibility drives productivity with automation tailored to any shop floor.”

    Among the newer features of NCSIMUL and the NCSIMUL 4CAM module are: New probing strategies; support for turning after milling, for one-click NC machine turnaround; cutting tool management with 3D definitions; one-click project update; project export/import; automatic performance analysis; automatic graphic detection of machining risk zones and less than optimal cutting conditions, and more. The improvements are contained in the NCSIMUL OPTITOOL module of NCSIMUL MACHINE include algorithms that transform working feed rates into rapid feed rates or specified maximum feed rates for approach and retract motions in both circular and linear toolpaths. The software’s Air Cutting Optimization mode can enable users to reduce machining times by 4 – 25 percent by minimizing air-cutting motions and optimizing entry and exit feed rates. This results in immediate and automatic savings on every part produced, even on existing programs. 

    Simple, one-click implementation requires no alteration to the toolpath or existing CAM system. The software is effective in Fanuc, Heidenhain, Siemens and any other standard CNC control languages. NCSIMUL OPTITOOL also enables users to test different optimization strategies and provides graphic analysis comparing initial and optimized feed rates. Further, this optimization can be applied (repeated) on every machined part currently in process, multiplying the gains.

  • NCSIMUL Machine
    5 Axis simulation and Verification Software for CNC Machining. Get end-to-end control of the machining process by integrating the creation of cutting tool libraries, optimized cutting conditions, simulation and verified NC programs....

  • Get end-to-end control of their machining process, integrating the creation of cutting tool libraries, optimized cutting conditions, simulation and optimized NC programs, as well as the ability to publish the manufacturing data needed for operators in the workshop.

     The leading market standard, our collaborative solution of manufacturing simulation allows you to save time, money and machine by:

    -          Securing your machines against the risks of component breakage (avoiding collisions and crashes)

    -          Optimizing the global machining cycle time: optimized cutting conditions (tool lengths, rapid tool motion, tool working envelope, etc.), elimination of manual prove-outs

    -          Reducing CNC program preparation time and your programmer training

    -          Supporting collaborative publication of workshop documentation and manufacturing content: integration of the 3D film of the simulation, automatic work instruction publication

    NCSIMUL has the capability to integrate with any CAM package including MASTERCAM, CATIA, UNIGRAPHICS, PROE, DELCAM, ESPRIT, EDGECAM and many more… 

    This allows users to seamlessly transfer all tooling, fixture, part, origins from your CAM into NCSIMUL MACHINE.

  • NCSIMUL 4CAM
    CNC Part Transfer. NCSIMUL 4CAM effectively brings users more efficient processes and integrates their best practice. This tool is reliable, flexible, secure and automated for selecting the production resources they want to deploy....

  • NCSIMUL 4CAM is the new NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS module. Enriching the existing CAM process, it simplifies CNC programming and provides an unparalleled ability to switch part programs between CNC machines for flexibility on the shop floor. It allows to change, in one click, the targeted machine, without need to reprogram within the CAM.


    From any major CAM native file (CATIA, NX, Creo, TOPSOLID CAM, MASTERCAM, ...) or  any existing CNC programs (G-code format), NCSIMUL 4CAM generates directly, without an external post-processor, verified and optimized CNC programs, taking into account the real machining environment available in the shop floor (tools, cutting conditions, machine capabilities and controllers, etc.).

    • Automatically generate new CNC machine programs from former CNC toolpath.
    • Transfer parts machined from CNC to another, on-the-fly, without reprogramming.
    • Reuse existing APT or G-code files with a copy/paste click to optimize the manufacturing process.

  • NCSIMUL OPTITOOL: ADD- ON of NCSIMUL MACHINE
    Add-on of NCSIMUL MACHINE, OPTITOOL analyzes cutting conditions, dramatically reduces air- cutting, optimizes feed rates, and allows users to create better cutting strategies....

  • NCSIMUL OPTITOOL analyzes cutting conditions, dramatically reduces “air cutting,” optimizes feed rates, and allows users to create better cutting strategies. The sum benefits are a reduction in the production cycle times, enhancement of cutting operations, and fast development of new G code optimized files for future applications.

    This NCSIMUL MACHINE module allows you to optimize the tool lengths, air cutting and cutting conditions of your NC programs (from 3 to 5 axis simulation software).

    Reduce your CNC machining cycle time by 20%.
