Outstanding innovations honored at EMO

SPRING Technologies, provider of software that increases the efficiency of CNC machines, was awarded winner in the "CAD/CAM Systems" category at the EMO Hannover 2017 trade fair. The NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS 2017 CNC Simulation Platform based on a bidirectional 3D database enables an intelligent and flexible CNC Machining process.

For the 6th time MM Maschinenmarkt has awarded the most innovative exhibits from the world of metalworking at the EMO Exhibition. This year's award ceremony took place on the first day, during which the innovations of all shortlist candidates were honored in various categories such as automation technology, tools, additive manufacturing, CAD/CAM systems, milling or turning.

NCSIMUL Solutions for flexible, optimized and bidirectional CNC process

In the "CAD/CAM Systems" category, NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS 2017 convinced the jury with its unified, continuous and bi-directional data platform, with a faster G-Code processing from engineering department directly to the shop floor - with error-free G-Code programs. In the new NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS 2017, the user has access to all data relating to the CNC machine, tool and technology parameters without any further adjustments, all visualized in 3D. The G-Code simulation and verification is also integrated in this process, tool path optimization, tool management, as well as the automated conversion of G-Code programs.

The automated part transfers to a new CNC Machine with a different controller and is managed through the software in just a few clicks, whereby the programs are adapted directly to the defined performance of the targeted CNC machine. Digital tool management includes its own integrated 3D module. The master models (respecting DIN4003/ISO 13399 standards) contained in the system are predefined for faster creation of the complete tool set and components.

"A Seal of Innovation"

Gilles Battier, CEO, and Herbert Schönle, SPRING Technologies' General Manager DACH, thanked the organization on behalf of the entire team of SPRING Technologies for the award. "The award with the MM Award for the EMO 2017 is a great honor and recognition for our development on the intelligent and flexible CNC production of the future” says Herbert Schönle. And Gilles Battier observes: "For SPRING Technologies, this is the 4th innovation prize in 18 months, it confirms our market vision of developing a software solution that is accessible with fast learning curve and easy implementation to meet the real requirements of CNC Manufacturing covering Industry 4.0 challenges, thanks to our digital evolutions. We are on the right track."

About EMO Hannover 2017

From 18 to 23 September 2017, international manufacturers of production technology will be spotlighting "Connecting systems for intelligent production" at the EMO Hannover 2017. The world's premier trade fair for the metalworking industry will be showcasing the entire bandwidth of today's most sophisticated metalworking technology, which is the heart of every industrial production process. The fair will be presenting the latest machines, plus efficient technical solutions, product-supportive services, sustainability in the production process, and much, much more. The principal focus of the EMO Hannover is on metal-cutting and forming machine tools, production systems, high-precision tools, automated material flows, computer technology, industrial electronics and accessories. The trade visitors to the EMO come from all major sectors of industry, such as machinery and plant manufacturers, the automotive industry and its component suppliers, the aerospace sector, precision mechanics and optics, shipbuilding, medical technology, tool and die manufacture, steel and lightweight construction. The EMO Hannover is the world's most important interna-tional meeting point for production technology specialists from all over the planet. In 2013, the fair attracted more than 2,130 exhibitors, and around 143,000 trade visitors from more than 100 different countries. EMO is a registered trademark of the European Association of the Machine Tool Industries CECIMO.
