ANCA's tool grinding software performs calculations in the backgroundClick image to enlargeThe latest release of software maker ANCA’s CIMulator3D tool simulation software for grinding has an upgraded interface with fresh colors and icons and is even easier to use with intuitive functionality. 

The new software offers clearer visualization with the customizable timeline panel – effectively a central dashboard for quicker and easier tool analysis. New tool programs can be verified for size, shape, machine clearance, cycle time estimates, and more. 

The new features save time while simulating the programmed tool path exactly as it would be in real life, allowing the user to view the state of the tool at any point of the grinding timeline.

This interactive timeline of the grinding process that acts as an animation and analysis hub and as a central dashboard for all analysis, rather than having it distributed in multiple places.

The software provides complete information about the balance of a rotating tool. The output includes the quality grade and imbalance of the tool, which is then passed on to the ToolRoom portion of the software to balance the tool effectively.

The software also performs calculations in the background rather than having users kick this off. Collisions are recalculated automatically when machine configuration is changed; material removal rates are calculated when row is shown in timeline to display the MMR graph, and; tool balancing is calculated automatically when tool balancing dialogue is shown.

Multi-Tasking: Is it Right for Your Shop?

For manufacturers looking to achieve that competitive edge, you can do no better than a multi-tasking machine. They eliminate the need for separate milling and turning machines, multiple set-ups and, most importantly, they improve productivity.

The Rules of X-Ray Micro CT (and When to Break Them)

Offer the term “metrology equipment” to a group of industrial or manufacturing engineers in a word-association test and it's highly likely CMM (coordinate measuring machine) would be the response.
