SPRING Technologies opens new horizons with its "Smart Solutions" philosophy and "NCEXPERIENCE"
Smarter, more instrumented, more integrated... The groundwork for innovation in the NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS portfolio
SPRING Technologies, soft vendor optimizing the use of complex NC machines, officially announces the implementation of its strategy based on the new NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS portfolio supporting end-to-end manufacturing processes for NC machines and its smart solutions philosophy: more integrated, smarter, more instrumented, pushing users' experience to higher ground, not only with NC simulation tools but also in the way companies manage their NC machines and their global manufacturing process.
This vision releases innovation in production processes for discrete part manufacturers who, from now on, will be able to adapt their production cycles to the fluctuations of the economic environment, and ultimately achieve perfect real-time synchronization of their physical and virtual machining cycles. SPRING lays down a milestone along the road to the smart factory of the future.
Called the "NCEXPERIENCE", the combination of smart solutions and an enriched user experience will enable SPRING Technologies customers to get end-to-end control of their machining process, integrating the creation of cutting tool libraries, optimized cutting conditions, simulation and optimized NC programs, plus the ability to publish the manufacturing data needed by operators in the workshop. This enables manufacturers to set up a robust, real-time digital production process that is complete, reliable, and fits the context of their business needs.
VISION, VALUE PROPOSITION and A NEW PORTFOLIO OF SOLUTIONS
Since 1980, the mission of SPRING Technologies has always been to offer its customers efficient, reliable tools to help them manage their NC tools. From developing and delivering its very first post-processors, to its groundbreaking digital workshop, via the checking of machining operations and 3D simulation of NC machine tools, the company has always been one step ahead of the market, basing its product development strategy on a value proposition: help customers win the battle of competitiveness.
Today it is laying the cornerstone for a new era of "Smart Machining": NCSIMUL Machine 9, its integrated realistic machining simulation module that is faster, more immersive and smarter.
Philippe Solignac, Corporate Marketing Director, looks at back at the story so far: "In the last few years, we have been working in partnership with our customers to fine-tune our NC simulation tools. The result is an extension of our range of dovetailed solutions to offer comprehensive coverage of all the processes in the production environment. By integrating the latest developments in hardware and software technology from Microsoft and Intel – ultra-mobility and calculation power – into real-time DNC and realistic virtual 3D simulation, we are now in an ideal position to step into a new era of technology. NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS addresses the needs of businesses in the 21st century."

Olivier Bellaton, General Manager, explains: "Our value proposition today, addressing the development of the industrial environment, is to deliver smart, process-oriented solutions that enable our customers to squeeze every drop of performance from their NC machine tools, in real time and for the duration. The logic remains the same: to help our customers to become more competitive. Our leitmotiv is about safeguarding their investment, improving productivity and helping to increase profit by continuously innovating in their production processes and getting full control of their NC machine. Customer relations have always been absolutely central to SPRING's corporate culture and remain our prime focus today."
Gilles Battier, CEO, has the last word: "We know that tomorrow... By 2020 at the latest, embedded intelligence will prevail in just about any product or service. Intelligence will be everywhere: from car tires to spectacles. Everything will integrate augmented reality functions that interact totally and in real time, between the physical world and its virtual equivalent enriched with contextual information. This means that manufacturing will have to be smarter too, capable of turning out these new generation products. We are ready to meet the challenge and have everything we need to win. An innovative portfolio based on state-of-the-art technology, thorough knowledge of our market, and the expertize of our teams, going back 30 years."
