Enhance your virtual machine by integrating Siemens Run MyVNCK
With SINUMERIK Run My VCNK, machine manufacturers and end users can create their own control-specific virtual world, as Run MyVNCK embeds the original CNC Kernel into a virtual machine. NC programs and their processing can be simulated in the same control environment with Run MyVNCK.
The following points must be ensured to guarantee the smoothest possible experience and optimum machine utilization in a production environment:
• Do NC programs run collision-free?
• Is the program syntax error-free?
• How long will the machine take to cut the workpiece?
• How can new part programs be run as quickly as possible?
Integrate Run MyVNCK in the process chain
All of these questions can be answered based on a virtual machine with Run MyVNCK. Eureka offers in cooperation with Siemens a solution that allows machine availability to be significantly increased:
An optimized CAD/CAM-CNC process chain for preparing the job, including simulation in an identical control environment in Eureka. This allows a virtual machine to be seamlessly integrated into the normal product development process. As a consequence, production companies can have a virtual, identical job preparation station, independent of the state and availability of the actual machine. They can then fully plan, optimize and verify production steps in this virtual environment.
Secure your investment through off-line programming
The virtual machine plays an essential role in ensuring that investing in a new machine tool or adapting an existing machine pays for itself as quickly as possible.
This means that the new workpiece can be preliminarily tested on a virtual machine with the desired machining strategy – while the physical machine is available for other machining tasks, has still not even been delivered, is resently being installed or is machining another part. End users can improve cycle times and do not have to wait for machines to become available in order to test new workpieces.
The original SINUMERIK software is used
By using the original SINUMERIK software in a virtual machine and a virtual production environment, we are offering end users the necessary degree of security to optimize their job preparation and the utilization of their
machine. This allows NC programs to be verified and evaluated 100% off-line – therefore avoiding possible programming errors and collisions. In addition, workpiece costs can be reliably calculated using the machining time accurately computed using Run MyVNCK.
What is the value-added of Run MyVNCK for a virtual machine?
• Based on the original software and the language scope of the SINUMERIK 840D
- Original NC code
- Complete scope of the SINUMERIK language
- 100% syntax check
• 100% accurate machining simulation, whether the program is from a CAM system or from the machine (including G-code and JobShop)
• Supports OEM and customer cycles
• Offers the highest precision for:
- Control operations
- Time calculations
Higher machine availability thanks to offline programming and optimizing
Increased productivity through programs optimal test on a virtual machine
Safety: by using the original CNC kernel, NC programs can be verified almost 100% offline – also ensuring collision-free machining
Highest possible precision by using the original CNC kernel, e.g. for calculating times, NC algorithms, etc.
Effective personnel training in an environment close to the actual machine itself
