SPRING Technologies to present latest NCEXPERIENCE® developments at ENACC PLM Conference
Smart Manufacturing: transforming the way you interact with CNC Machines
On October 17, at the ENACC PLM Conference to be held at ENACC campus, Saint-Hubert, Quebec (www.enacc.ca), SPRING Technologies will explain how its technological leadership is transforming the way stakeholders in the manufacturing process interact with CNC Machines, and fully addresses the demands of the “smart manufacturing” environment.
This one-day conference mainly targets professional and academic CATIA users keen to learn more about the developments impacting their CAD/CAM environment.
The morning session will include keynote presentations by Francis Bernard, Co-Founder of DASSAULT SYSTEMES and François Bouffard, DS-Canada Industry Affairs Director.
Break-out/workshop sessions will then follow, focusing on a range of topics related to manufacturing, Knowledge Management, PLM/Data Management, V6 Architecture, Model Based Definition and more…

SPRING's Executive, Philippe Solignac, will show how NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS' users seamlessly integrate the creation of cutting tool libraries, optimized cutting conditions and NC program simulation, plus the ability to publish the manufacturing data needed by operators in the workshop, while monitoring CNC machine activity in real-time.
North American users will also be invited to attend a WYSIWIC® - What You See Is What You Cut – showcase. This is the latest NC breakthrough demonstrated at the mid-September EMO 2013 trade-show. This mobile cutting-edge technology, implemented on a fully-rugged professional tablet (Panasonic's Toughpad), provides real-time synchronization between the CNC simulation (G-Code based), the work instruction sheet - both provided by NCSIMUL Machine - and the NC program, running on a CNC machine (FANUC Robodrill 5-Axis machine).
NC operators can therefore automatically access work instruction sheets in the machining environment while the real machine operations are being displayed, eliminating the need to download documentation as a separate task and helping NC operators to gain confidence as they work.
“In most workshops, a shortage of computers close to the CNC machines, and IT hardware that is too often obsolete, prevent access to the state-of-the-art technologies that deliver game-changing productivity gains. We are now in position to offer a seamless and mobile link between the CNC virtual and real machine world, a new user experience embedding the latest technologies that deliver unrivalled productivity and quality gains.” said Philippe Solignac, Corporate Marketing Director.
