Evry and Pisa, March 02, 2020 – TOPSOLID enriches its offer with two new products: TopSolid’CamSimul and Topsolid’CamOptimize. Thanks to the contribution of Roboris’ technology, TopSolid users benefit from two new solutions, one for checking ISO programs and the other for optimizing ISO codes, significantly reducing machining time.
Since 2001 Roboris has been offering ISO program simulation software: Eureka. Operating on the digital twins of the machine, the tools, the part, Eureka detects anomalies (path errors, collisions, out-of-specification chips…), thus avoiding any machine breakage.
The investment is typically amortized between 3 and 5 months. The machine becomes completely dedicated to machining since the tests are carried out on screen and no longer on the machine. By simplifying setup and reducing the number of tests required, productivity is increased and operator confidence is increased. Eureka provides accurate machining time to simplify production organization. A base of over 2000 machines is available. Eureka supports any type of machine and any type of controller such as Heidenhain, Fanuc, Siemens, Num, OSAI, Z32, Fidia, Selca…
The partnership between TOPSOLID and Roboris gives birth to TopSolid’CamSimul. This is the integration of Eureka into the TopSolid environment. No need for an interface or data conversion, TopSolid’Cam users benefit from an independent and objective verification of the generated ISO code.
Roboris also offers an optimization module that allows the reduction of the machining time of an ISO program. The average gain is 15%. Trajectories are not modified. The software constantly adapts the feed speed, inside and outside the material. The return on investment is a few months.
TopSolid’CamOptimize is the integration of this module with TopSolid’Cam. Users can directly generate ISO code with optimized feed rates.
Both new products will be presented shortly at Simodec in La Roche sur Foron and Global Industrie 2020 in Paris.
As part of an approach in line with Industry 4.0, TOPSOLID and Roboris help manufacturers to reduce energy, raw material or time consumption while increasing productivity.
