NUM will be launching a major new release of its renowned NUMROTO tool grinding software at GrindTec 2018.
Visitors to NUM’s stand – 7038 in Hall 7 – will have the opportunity to gain a hands-on impression of this highly popular software package. The experience will benefit anyone involved in the manufacture or re-sharpening of precision machine tools, or who is interested in the future of CNC machine tool automation.
The new release of NUMROTO software, Version 4.0, provides numerous new features and enhancements. These include new features for ball nose and corner radius tools, automated documentation of fully dimensioned wheel packages, and grinding spindle power monitoring to facilitate adaptive grinding on specific machines. The software’s 3D simulation facilities now offer coolant holes in the 3D blank and DXF comparison profiles, as well as an all-new measurement mode.
First launched in 1987, NUMROTO software has become the preferred choice for many of the world’s leading manufacturers of machines for the production and re-sharpening of tools such as end-mills, drills, step drills, form cutters and many others. Compared to most competitive products on the market, the software provides a much more direct and efficient path between tool design and manufacture. Featuring an integrated modeling-simulation-interpolation chain, NUMROTO avoids the sequential CAD-to-CAM and CAM-to-CNC translation phases of conventional software approaches and provides a true WYSIWYG output. This enables users of tool grinding machinery to sidestep multiple data format changes and emulations.
