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.

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 Probing

CNC MACHINE PROBING

  • Guides

  • Demo Video

INTEGRATED PROBING SOLUTION FOR MASTERCAM

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.
