Composite Laying Simulation Becomes a Reality

Just as it does in conventional machining, NCSIMUL Machine 9.1 from SPRING Technologies decodes all types of NC programs, representing the complete machine environment in 3D to identify and analyze programming errors and collisions. The “Composite” option of this version also enables a dynamic representation of fiber ribbon laying, taking into consideration the 3D form of the carbon fiber. The positioning of each fiber in the ribbon is managed independently.
The latest version of NCSIMUL Machine 9.1, the flagship machining simulation software from SPRING Technologies,now makes it possible to replicate material laying processes executed by numerical control machines.
