G-Code simulation software attracts atttentionThe CAD/CAM software products Edgecam, VISI and Radan have been exhibited in the UK for the first time since becoming part of the Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence production software business.

They were also joined for the first time on the stand at the Southern Manufacturing trade fair by NCSimul, a G-code simulation software from recent acquisition Spring Technologies.

Gareth Henwood, area sales manager for the production software business (www.edgecam.com), said visitors to the stand were impressed by on-screen demonstrations of NCSimul, which showed its versatility and ease of use.

“Although there’s a powerful simulator in Edgecam, it simulates from the file, whereas NCSimul reads the data that’s actually going into the machine.

“This gives manufacturers full confidence that when they start to cut metal, there won’t be any collisions or gouging.”

Described as a high-end CNC simulation software, NCSimul (www.ncsimul.com) manages the complete machining process from the NC program to the machined part; visitors to the Hexagon stand also saw that its capabilities include automatic G-code reprogramming and G-code simulation.

Other benefits that complete the platform and enhance production include DNC program management, real-time machine monitoring and publishing technical content.

As well as NCSimul and three of the production software business’s CAD/CAM solutions, also being demonstrated were the Workplan ERP system and a number of Hexagon’s scanning devices.
