After an extensive testing conducted over many months at its headquarters in Mindelheim, Germany, GROB-WERKE GmbH has chosen Eureka as the simulation engine for the Cloud services that will be offered to their customers as part of their GROB-NET4Industry software technology (GROB4Simulate). Besides, Eureka will be used also internally in GROB’s manufacturing department.
GROB’s customers will be able to submit their simulation jobs to the Cloud service directly from the machine tool controller, using the tools provided by GROB4Simulate. The simulation will be performed remotely by Eureka running on one of several GROB’s servers. Upon receiving the results, customers will then review the simulation using the Eureka Viewer installed by default on the controller.
The GROB4Simulate capabilities, including the simulation service powered by Eureka, will be on display at the GROB booth (Hall 12, booth B04) at the upcoming EMO exhibition in Hannover, Germany, 18-23 September 2017.
“The Eureka capabilities are a valuable addition to our GROB4Simulate offering”, says Markus Frank,
GROB-NET4Industry Manager. “We are now able to provide a powerful remote simulation service of any ISO program. Being able to manage the ISO output provides our users with an enhanced and accurate virtual representation of the machining job, before committing the toolpath to the machine.”
“Our business development strategy is based on partnerships within three main channels: CAD/CAM companies, Machine Tool makers, and OEM's”, says Gianluca Bioli, Roboris co-founder. “Our partnership with GROB is an important step in becoming a leading provider of virtual machining software to the industry. We are confident that GROB’s user base will appreciate the additional functionalities provided by Eureka, as much as GROB’s internal users already did.”
