SHEFFIELD - 24th March, 2014 - MachineWorks Ltd, leading provider of CNC simulation & verification and polygonal mesh processing software, will be presenting new functionality at SIMTOS specifically suited to CNC controllers.

MachineWorks has achieved significant improvement in the performance for controller-based simulation thanks to the ingenious usage of memory. "The key is always to adjust to your environment and work with what you've got", says Mike Nicholson, Sales Director of MachineWorks, "when we started developing MachineWorks 20 years ago, we worked with computers that had very little memory or processing power; applying this expertise through years of optimisation, we have achieved extraordinary speed in CNC controllers with complex toolpaths".

MachineWorks analyses the input data on the fly to decide which will be the most efficient use of processing power for each set of data. Sometimes the optimal way may be, for example, merging cuts together. This will improve speed and reduce memory usage. The improvement is particularly noticeable in toolpaths, which are sampled, as in controller-based simulations where the original toolpath data is not known, and the data passed to MachineWorks is just a stream of sampled tool locations. In these cases, a long cut may be split into tens or hundreds of small sections. MachineWorks can examine these points and determine that they are all part of the same original cut. This can result in a significant time saving, with some of our test data shows increased performance by a factor of 10.

In addition, MachineWorks is now supporting the use of mobile operating devices which offers flexible solutions for the shop floor.
