Machining operations can be simulated in real-time on CNC controllers. Visibility inside a machine is often obscured by coolant but MachineWorks’ simulation allows operators to monitor progress of the machining cycle with the added benefits of dynamic rotation and zooming.
MachineWorks has been integrated into more sophisticated CNC controllers allowing the ultimate in safety and control: a built-in intelligence system that will not allow the machine to crash. The toolpath is monitored live. The software will “look ahead” of the toolpath and if it detects an imminent crash it will stop the machine and give a warning.
