CIMCO Machine Simulation


Eliminate costly programming mistakes

CIMCO Machine Simulation helps eliminate costly programming mistakes and accelerates onsite startup by providing a price competitive and user-friendly solution for CNC machine simulation.

Machine Simulation enables you to prove-out your NC code on a 3D model of your CNC machine and see the exact movement of components such as heads, rotary tables, spindles, tool changers, fixtures, workpieces, and even peripheral devices. Collisions, over-travel errors, and close-calls are automatically detected to ensure that error-free code is sent to the physical machine.

Key Features

  • Eliminate costly programming mistakes
  • Increase shop safety
  • Accelerate onsite startup
  • Reduce downtime, scrap and rework
  • Faster iterations
  • Optimize toolpaths
  • Faster shifting of jobs between available machines
  • Train at the PC instead of at the machine
  • Utilize the powerful functionality in CIMCO Edit
  • Affordable and user-friendly

Mastercam Integration

Transfer tool, holder and geometry data directly from Mastercam 

Transfer tool, holder and geometry data directly from Mastercam

CIMCO Edit Integration for Mastercam enables users to seamlessly transfer tool, holder and geometry data directly from Mastercam to CIMCO Edit making it available for use in CIMCO Machine Simulation or Backplot.

Key Features

The CIMCO Edit Integration provides an easy-to-use dialog that allows the user to select geometry, workpiece and fixture, enter a position for the selected geometry and which machine to use in CIMCO Machine Simulation.

Every time data is transferred, all geometry is automatically exported to STL models and imported in CIMCO Edit – something that would otherwise be a manual process. Make a small adjustment in Mastercam and easily update CIMCO Machine Simulation or the Backplot in CIMCO Edit.

Manufacturing Data Collection (MDC) and Monitoring

CIMCO MDC-Max is the complete MDC solution that enables automatic collection of manufacturing data from machines and personnel in real-time. MDC-Max provides accurate data for identifying causes of production loss, potential areas of improvement and enables real-time monitoring of your shop floor for continuous improvement.

Generate reports and charts with automatic calculation of OEE, cycle time, idle time, setup time, downtime and more. MDC-Max features real-time machine monitoring with Live Screens and has a fully customizable Operator interface for entering downtime reasons directly at the machine.

MDC-Max can benefit the one man operation with a few machines and the corporate enterprise with multiple factories. The MDC-Max software is highly flexible and easily customized to fit your current and future data collection needs. Since MDC-Max is a networked solution that stores data on a central server you can monitor production from multiple locations and access the data from anywhere.

CIMCO MDC-Max tracks reasons for machine down time

A large aerospace contractor was concerned that their production was not keeping up with demand and had made the decision to buy several additional machines. It was suggested that they check the runtime clocks on the machines for a week to see how much production time was being achieved. They were astonished to find that their machine utilization was below 50% but could not get an accurate picture of why this was happening.

CIMCO MDC-Max was installed to monitor the machines along with bar code readers for the operators to swipe downtime codes. MDC highlighted several problems in production, two of which were poor maintenance response and failure to replace tooling quickly enough to get the machine back in production.

Following the MDC-Max installation the customer implemented several measures including a priority system for maintenance and availability of new pre-set tools. They now achieve overall machine utilization of over 68% and meet their production targets which has increased profitability so they can now invest in a new plant.

Key Features

  • Improved efficiency
  • Accurate data collection
  • Real-time monitoring
  • Real-time and historic reports
  • Reduce administration time
  • Access data anywhere

CIMCO Probing



Probing can help improve the machining process in many ways, but is often underused due to the challenges and awkwardness of having to use external software, manually edit NC programs or add probing cycles through the CNC control interface.

CIMCO Probing is a fully integrated add-on for Mastercam that addresses all of these issues by making probing an integrated and natural part of the Mastercam programming process. CIMCO Probing helps improve the quality of parts, increases productivity and reduces setup-time and manual processes. Easily program your machining center’s spindle-mounted touch probe directly in Mastercam the same way you program toolpaths. CIMCO Probing generates machine-independant g-code that is inserted directly into the NC program and can be customized to work with any kind of probe.

Before machining, CIMCO Probing lets you utilize your CNC touch probe to ensure correct setup of the stock material in the machine – every time. During machining, CIMCO Probing can measure the geometry of the semi-finished part and dynamically compensate for topographic irregularities. It can even stop the machine if a specified tolerance is exceeded. The finished part can be measured automatically at the machine to verify its dimensions before the part is unclamped.

Key Features

  • Predefined probe cycles
  • Surface probing
  • Seamlessly integrated for Mastercam
  • Simulation of probe cycles
  • Multiple brand support for Renishaw, Blum, MARPOSS, etc.
