Mar 21, 2016 -- ModuleWorks, the leading supplier of CAD/CAM software components for machining and simulation and EXAPT Systemtechnik GmbH, the specialist CAD/CAM solutions provider, have extended their partnership with ModuleWorks.
ModuleWorks and EXAPT Systemtechnik have enjoyed a successful partnership since 2005. EXAPT already uses the ModuleWorks 3-axis, 5-axis and cutting simulation technology and has now added the ModuleWorks machine simulation component to strengthen its offering with the latest toolpath analysis and optimization software as well as advanced collision avoidance algorithms.
The ModuleWorks machine simulation component is a full kinematic machine simulation software for multi-axis milling, turning, CMM, robotic, woodworking and dental applications. The extensive library of machine kinematics provides support for almost every kinematic combination, which also enables the development of tailor-made applications. EXAPT has fully integrated this strategy into its own system and thereby enhanced its proven programming possibilities.
Gouge, collision and clash detection as well as stock visualization and measurement of machined stock provide comprehensive error detection and empower the EXAPT system with a reliable simulation and visualization of different processing scenarios.
“We are very pleased to extend our partnership with ModuleWorks”, says Dr. Arndt Richter, Managing Director of EXAPT. “The ModuleWorks machine simulation software offers best-in-class simulation, toolpath analysis and error detection and is the logical extension to our existing software offering. Easy integration ensures fast time to market and enables us to deliver cost-effective, state-of-art solutions to our customers.”
