CTRM Malaysia adopts NCSIMUL Machine from SPRING Technologies for its new implemented 5-axis gantry-type machines

 With NCSIMUL, we reduce the time for dry runs (99%) and risk of collisions/problems during the machining process

Paris, October 29, 2015 -- Composites Technology Research Malaysia Sdn Bhd, well known as CTRM Malaysia, is a leading global player in the composites and aerospace industry. Entrusted with a strategic role to develop high technology based industry, namely the aerospace and composites industries. The government identified these two industries as the most crucial constituents to future industrial growth for Malaysia.

CTRM: YOUR PARTNER IN COMPETITIVE SOLUTIONS In line with its Corporate Vision "To be the CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE for composites and aerospace" and its Mission "To be the PARTNER OF CHOICE in composites and aerospace through the development of people, capabilities and products", CTRM started its business operations with the assembly and manufacturing of a two-seater composites light aircraft, the Eagle 150B. Today, CTRM is part of the global supply chain of composite aero structures for major commercial and military aircraft manufacturers in the world.

Apart from manufacturing composite aero structures, CTRM is also providing engineering design services, composite parts assemblies, composites R&D, automotive composite structures, and defense-related equipment, including the Tactical Unmanned Aerial Vehicle.


CTRM started new composite parts production on their newly implemented 5-axis gantry-type machines. Large machines, parts and complex processes often lead to manufacturing issues such as inaccurate hole positions, over trim at the end of edges, collisions because of unsuitable cutting tools and programs or insufficient tool-length. These issues can add to very high costs for online debugging, many setups and scrap parts. The NC programs and cycles using the machines’ physical properties such as linear motors, automatic tool changer, automatic dust extractor attachment changer, multiple axes working simultaneously, automatic laser tool offset measurement, workpiece probing, special design drilling tools, and more needed to be fully verified and simulated before sending the final program to the actual machine.

CTRM looked for a comprehensive machining simulation software for developing, optimizing and running machining programs meant for NC machine tools and ultimately chose NCSIMUL MACHINE from SPRING Technologies for its high-speed G-Code Simulation, user-friendly interface and ability to decode and simulate all programs, sub-programs and complex macros out of any CTRM NC Machines.  


Benefits of using the Virtual Machine within the NCSIMUL MACHINE environment have been significant from the beginning. The process of debugging and verifying was transferred from the real machine to the virtual machine on the programmers’ computers. CTRM identified the following advantages:

  • Offline development program for new projects, complex shapes and improvement campaigns.
  • Increase productivity through performance. With NCSIMUL MACHINE, they reduce the time for dry runs (99%) and risk of collisions and other problems during the machining process. All program verifications for their existing machines and all future machines are done offline, leaving the machine for production only.
  • Detect the errors and mistakes of the NC program that caused collisions between spindle head, tool holder and fixture.
  • Optimum CNC machine running.
  • NCSIMUL MACHINE has great technical service and support in Malaysia from local suppliers based in Kuala Lumpur and Penang



SPRING Technologies develops software solutions designed to optimize manufacturing companies' CNC machines to reduce costs and maximize productivity.

Its product NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS® provides a complete and integrated mastery of the production process from Methods departments to Workshop including NC programming, machining simulation, cutting tool management, CNC program management and real time machine status monitoring.

This unique approach simplifies the digital chain and provides needed tools and flexibility for the implementation of automated factories.

Based in France, Germany, PR China and the USA, the company was founded in 1983 and collaborates with manufacturers in aerospace and defense, transportation, energy, industrial equipment and medical devices, using CAM software’s such as CATIA, NX, CREO, TOPSOLIDCAM, MASTERCAM…. Through its global network of resellers, SPRING supports its customers all over the world.
