The 2D simulation is an integral part of NUMROTOplus®, and is included in each NUMROTOplus® package. All grinding operations can be simulated on the PC using the 2D simulation. The tool can be cut in a desired position so that the subsequent cross-section can be evaluated and measured. Even details as small as a few micrometers can be analyzed.
Afterwards, the tool cut on the machine corresponds exactly to the simulated tool.
3D Simulation and 3D Collision Monitoring
With the integration in the NUMROTO software of 3D tool simulation with grinding process animation and collision monitoring with 3D machine simulation, a comprehensive total solution has emerged offering a wide range of functions and high operating convenience.
In addition to the 2D simulation, NUMROTOplus® can also be equipped with the integrated NUMROTO 3D software. As with the 2D option, this software provides a perfect simulation of the complete tool.
Even with the best software and experienced skilled staff, collisions are sometimes unavoidable. A disengaged disc, spindle arbor or attached auxiliary device (tailstock, support) are all possible causes of a collision. To prevent this, NUMROTO and NUMROTO 3D come complete with an integrated collision check, which can also be fully automated.
