Keeping the machines running on the shop floor is a crucial goal for every manufacturer. Idle machines mean lost production, forfeited ROI, and wasted manpower. Yet new products and engineering changes can be delayed while programmers work to ready the machines.

3DEXPERIENCE NC PROGRAMMING (also known as/part of DELMIA) enhances both programmer and machine productivity by providing a single, integrated software environment for design and simulation of machining processes. The solution accelerates launches and changes, helps optimize resources, and improves quality from stock to finished part.

  • Reduce NC programming time

    Offers efficiencies with features such as intuitive graphic dialog boxes, traffic light indicators for undefined machining parameters, and a help icon for each parameter. When NC programs are authored or edited, take into account the machine tool's kinematic definition. Tool changes and machine rotations are automatically generated and can be visualized in the machining operation definition panel.

  • Maximize machine tool utilization

    Wide range of operations and strategies helps programmers create toolpath programs that minimize non-value-added motion. Optimized NC programs, including high-speed machining features, reduce overall machining cycle time and avoid collision with other in-process parts.

  • Mitigate risk to production

    Users can create optimized NC programs that take the tool’s physical environment into account: NC machine, cutter, tool assemblies, NC accessories, and other elements. This superior tool path and machining strategy reduces the risk of unexpected issues and production delays.

  • Leverage intellectual property
    Users can define and store machining processes for multi-pocket operations as dedicated templates, and keep them in catalogs for future use. By automating, standardizing, and reusing company intellectual property, gains to productivity and machining-work standardization become significant.
  • Rapidly respond to changes

    The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform provides native associativity between machining programs and engineering and manufacturing data. Companies can better manage concurrent engineering and manufacturing, shorten the design-to-manufacturing cycle, rapidly program for design changes and variations, and respond effectively to engineering or manufacturing changes.

An Introduction to 3DEXPERIENCE (DELMIA) NC Programming

This instructional webinar will include an overview of key elements in the new Shop Floor Programmer app. We will cover the tree view, breakdown of the PPR context container for manufacturing, activities process tree, manufacturing view, machining process view, and resource configuration view. We will also explore new UI enhancements, and end on material removal simulation and machine kinematic simulation.

You will learn:

  • An understanding of different Machining Views and the structured data they display allows you to become more efficient while programming.
  • How the improved user interface appearing in the Shop Floor Programmer makes programming easier and faster.
  • How NC machine simulation is a core functionality within all our NC apps and allows the NC programmer to detect machine axis limit errors, tool reachability problems, and create simulation time charts. This reduces time, saves money, and improves the quality of the g-code generated during postprocessing.

A Next-Generation NC Programming & Simulation Solution

3DEXPERIENCE NC PROGRAMMING enables manufacturers to program, simulate, and optimize machining processes, from design to tool path. It provides a complete, integrated 3D simulation of the entire machining process, including the tool assembly, the NC machine and the controller. NC programmers can instantly update programs, quickly see the impact on machining processes, and easily update toolpath programs. Planners are able to determine and validate processes, resources, and outputs before production starts, ensuring fewer mistakes and false starts.

  • Integrated simulation means that all simulations—for tools, fixtures, accessories and the machine—share the same data. There’s no need to transfer data or work with different formats. The value to manufacturers includes:
  • Eliminating the need for file transfers to and from third-party machine simulation software, reducing wait times and bypassing iterative processes
  • Assurance that the program will work the first time on the shop floor.
  • Saved production time, because programming changes can be made rapidly without file-transfer delays.

Integrated simulation makes it easier for NC programmers to create programs for very complex 5-axis parts and for parts that require machine kinematic programming on mill-turn machines. Programmers can confidently program hard-material machining that speeds production while extending tool life.

What’s more, 3DEXPERIENCE NC PROGRAMMING includes the ability to capture and reuse best practices through easily accessible templates, so manufacturers can standardize and share programming, tool setups, and resource utilization, thus fostering greater collaboration and continuous improvement across the company. Validated, shop-proven programming can be repeatedly recycled to save days and even weeks of work.
