ModuleWorks material removal simulation is multi-axis, multi-purpose simulation technology that increases shop floor productivity by enabling operators to verify NC programs and detect collisions between the workpiece and the tool shaft/holder directly on the control prior to machining. The ModuleWorks simulation technology also comes with a range of advanced analytical tools for NC-program optimization.
“We are very pleased to be working together with a technology leader in the CNC industry on such a vital aspect of digitalization,” says Mark Foti, head of Digital Factory at ModuleWorks.
The ModuleWorks material removal simulation is available as an optional feature for all FANUC iHMI.
FANUC Corp., established in 1972 at the foot of Mt. Fuji, has consistently pursued the automation of factories since 1956, when it developed the SERVO mechanism in the Japanese private sector.
ModuleWorksis a software component provider for the digital factory industry.
