Digital Twin

Realistic simulation for reliable production processes

In the office, the Digital Twin lets you leverage the actual kinematics, parameters, and functions of your machine during part design, program creation, and simulation:

  • Check and optimize traversing paths

  • Prevent program interruptions

  • Avoid collisions

  • Make full use of the machine's work envelope

  • Test five-axis movements

  • Inspect and optimize the clamping position

Virtual setup: simulations with real workholding

Setting up the machine is a key work step. Valuable machine time is lost when a part needs

to be rechucked, and collision with a clamping element can cause expensive damage. The

digital twin helps you avoid these additional costs.

The digital twin monitors the actual machining environment, including the workholding

scenario. Clamping elements are selected and positioned via insertion points. The

programming station graphically renders the machine components, workpiece, tool, and

workholding system, checking them for collisions that would occur during machining.

Fast and reliable production
