Trimming Composite Parts

When machining complex structures, such as those found in aerospace manufacturing, the cost of each structure prior to machining is extremely high. Mistakes are not an option as the lead time to get to the machining stage is usually so long that any mistakes completely wreck the delivery of the entire project or product, not just the one part. CNC machine simulation delivers defect-free NC programs more quickly to the workshop.

Machine Simulation detects collisions and near-misses between all machine tool components such as axis slides, heads, turrets, rotary tables, spindles, tool changers, fixtures, work pieces, cutting tools, and other user-defined objects. A user can set up near-miss zones around the components to check for close calls, and detect over-travel errors.
