SIMNC Products Overview

Products Overview



THE SIMNC ADVANTAGE
SIMNC is an API-based virtual machining kernel (engine) used for the three-dimensional simulation of multi-axis CNC machines and machining processes. Using a 3-dimensional computer model of the machine tool,
the Virtual Machine, SIMNC provides:



  • Machine Tool Simulation
    Part Program Verification
    Dynamic Material Removal
    Comprehensive Collision Detection

 

  • Control manufacturers, machine tool builders, software companies and others with unique machine simulation needs can use the SIMNC kernel as a toolkit to build real-time, on-line or off-line solutions tailored to their individual needs.
  • Embedded On-Line Machine Simulation
    Desktop Off-Line G-Code Verification
    Integrated Off-Line CAM Solutions


 

  • Core API

  • Core API

    The SIMNC Core API utilizes a fast and accurate 3D polyhedral mathematical model to perform dynamic simulation of material removal and collision detection. The Core API is intended to be used whenever material removal has to be calculated.


  • Machine API

    The SIMNC Machine API provides full 3-dimensional simulation of the complete machine tool in dynamic solids. Using the Machine API, the movements of complex multi-axis, multi-tasking, milling, turning and / or Swiss-turn machines are simulated.
  • Machine API


  • GraphicsX API

    The SIMNC Graphics API is a desktop application used to assemble a virtual machine from its individual components. This Virtual Machine is then used by the SIMNC Machine API.


  • Controller API

    The SIMNC Controller API represents a Virtual Machine Tool control. The SIMNC Controller supports the common concepts of a CNC control such as coordinates, states, modes, registers and paramwters. This API may be configured to emulate a wide range of commonly used CNC controls and functions, thereby drastically simplifying the implementation of a complete Virtual Machine.


  • Machine Tool Builder

  • Machine Tool Builder

    The SIMNC Machine Tool Builder (MTB) is a desktop application used to assemble a virtual machine from its individual components. This Virtual Machine is then used by the SIMNC Machine API.
