SHOPViewer, the visualization solution for the workshop, the hyperCAD®-S and hyperMILL® data can be visualised directly next to the machine. Now every manufacturing operation can be checked in detail on the monitor even before the setup begins.

On-screen Simulation
The simulation software provides fast and dynamic simulations of all your tool movements before the final NC program is generated. Thanks to the intuitive user interface, the application is both simple and reliable. The model can be rotated or enlarged for the simulation. Models can be loaded and saved at any time.

To guarantee maximum process reliability, the machine and material removal simulation for a defined machine model takes into account not only the workpiece, tool and tool holder, fixtures and clamps, but also the traverse paths of the different machine axes.

Visualisation of Machine Movements
  • for offers, machine purchases and machine allocations
  • in the programming environment
  • in the production environment
Collision Check During NC Programming
Because subsequent manual collision avoidance is not usually feasible. hyperVIEW® accounts for collision checks: a machine simulation with material removal simulation that is a fixed component of the hyperMILL® CAM software. This high-performance control tool allows the user to precisely visualise the generated milling paths.

There are a variety of different application areas for machine simulations that all make different demands on the performance of these systems. General application areas include:

  • Calculation and visualisation of the material removal for checking, evaluating and optimising the machining process
  • Visualisation of machine movements when planning machine purchases and machine allocations, preparing bid proposals, in the programming environment and in the production environment

  • High level of process reliability (collision, workspace)
  • Flexible manufacturing by means of fast machine replacement
  • Reduced setup costs using workspace analysis
  • Interactive tool engagement possibilities in cases of collision or limit switch problems
  • More accurate estimation of costs in the offer phase
  • Support during the supply of new machines
  • Complete integration of all functions during the calculation
Reliable Monitoring – Reliable Milling
Based on the stored machine model, workspace monitoring checks whether any limit switches are traversed by the 2D, 3D, 3+2 or 5-axis simultaneous machining movements. The movements of both the linear axes (X, Y and Z) and the circular axes (A, B and C) are checked, and clamps and clamping systems are included. Error messages and colour highlighting in the graphical overview alert the user when a limit switch is traversed. Workspace monitoring is available in the following simulation mode:

  • with machine
  • with machine and material removal simulation

In addition, hyperMILL®’s unique best fit function automatically optimises the machining operation to match the available workspace. Workspace monitoring is thus able to indicate that limit switches have been traversed but that the actual workspace is still sufficient for machining. In this case the best fit function automatically determines the optimal workspace utilisation – taking into account the clamps and the tools used but without recalculating the corresponding machining steps.

As well as providing better process reliability, this also increases machine efficiency and precision – particularly for small-scale and limited-function machines – as unnecessary set-up changes and downtimes are avoided.
