Are you going to Modern Machine Shop’s Top Shops Conference?

Don’t miss Siemens Digital Industries Software at Top Shops Conference, September 9-11, 2019 — Duke Energy Convention Center – Cincinnati, OH.   You will find us in Exhibit Hall booth #33 , where Siemens experts will be conducting demonstrations of the NX CAM – Siemens SINUMERIK Virtual NC Controller Kernel.   During the demo you will learn about integrated validation of machining operations with full machine tool motion.

What is the NX CAM – Siemens SINUMERIK Virtual NC Controller Kernel?

By combining NX CAM software with the embedded Virtual NC Controller Kernel (VNCK) from Siemens’ market-leading SINUMERIK 840D controller, manufacturers can attain a new level of accuracy and completeness when using 3D simulations to validate their machining operations. The integrated solution enables your company to perform highly accurate simulations, thereby ensuring the reliability of your validation process and reducing manufacturing cost by minimizing your need for prove out and first-article machining trials.

The integrated Virtual NC Controller Kernel solution enables you to validate the operation of an NC-driven machine tool by driving its kinetic motion in a 3D solid assembly model and simulating a motion study entirely within NX CAM software.  In this scenario, programmers validate an NC program by having NX CAM post process the program’s tool paths and send the posted output to the embedded SINUMERIK controller kernel. In turn, the controller kernel processes the data exactly as it would on a real machine and drives the 3D machine-tool model to display the simulation.

What is Top Shops Conference?

Modern Machine Shop Top Shops is an extension of their Top Shops Benchmarking program, the conference will connect leading machining and metalworking professionals to the people, the products and the processes that are moving manufacturing forward.  It is an event that has been designed by Top Shops for Top Shops. 

Register here for Top Shops Conference.

We look forward to seeing you!
