Machine and material removal simulation and 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.
