Computer Numerical Control Tools
Guided by CAD data and can be used when parts require tight tolerances and finishes
Computer Numerical Control machines are guided by CAD data rather than by human beings. Machining processes shape metal by the controlled removal of material. Prismatic machining cuts a 3D shape in one go. Milling, one of the most commonly used, removes material. Turning is much as it sounds: rotating the part against a machine known as a lathe. Wire Electrical Discharge Machining (EDM) uses electrically charged wire to vaporize material rather than cutting it by traditional methods. Being able to control these processes – and integrate them with CAD software – is critical to efficiency, the precision of your parts and the quality of your product.
Tools for creation and optimization of machining processes
NC & Tooling Suite
Boosts productivity by automatically creating and optimizing toolpaths using standard and form tools.
Complete Machining Extension (TDX + EMX)
The precision removal of material in machining needs tight control and zero mistakes. Rework and scrap add up to busted budgets and uncomfortable meetings. There is a better way. Designed for specialized mold assembly creation, this package bundles Creo TDX and Creo EMX.
Additive Manufacturing Extension (AMX)
With Creo, what you design is actually what you print. Say goodbye to the disconnected, error-ridden hassle of multiple software packages. Now you can design, optimize, validate, and run a print-check all in one environment, reducing overall process time, tedium, and mistakes. When you’re ready, simply send the file straight to the 3D printer.
Create precise geometry regardless of a model’s complexity with real-time collision and interference capabilities so you can correct design problems early on in the design process. Creo Parametric has powerful surface creation capabilities build into the base package.
Spring Technologies Products
Capabilities specifically for design with plastic
Easily integrated to your existing software system with CAM interfaces and tool management. No machine is too complex. Simulation accounts for complete machine parameters: Initial positioning of the part on the table, clamp addition/removal during machining, part rotation/translation between 2 programs, manual tool mounting, operator data input, command validation, decodes G & M-codes, tool compensations (diameter, length), plus more!
Reduce your CNC machining cycle time by 20%.
Enhance the quality of your machining operations. Increase your machine capacity. Use the right tool length offsets and secure your setup, extended tool breakage-safety: alerts on restricted center-cutting tools, direct before-and-after comparison for a detailed overview on results and data, plus more!
Creo > NCSIMUL Machine
NCSIMUL Machine checks multi-axis operations and supports ISO code generated by Creo. The Creo and NCSIMUL Machine solutions operate separately, enabling you to create and edit a toolpath while at the same time proving or optimizing another NC program. Further substantial time-savings can be achieved by resuming a simulation on any line in the program after correcting the program in Creo.
NC & Tooling Suite
A complete machining simulation software for debugging, optimizing and running machining programs for Numerical Control machine tools. Problem-solving capabilities significantly boost the cost-effectiveness of the environment; including programming, tooling selection, clamping methods, tools, attachments, machine-tools and the time devoted to the process by all individuals involved.
Complete Machining Extension (EMX + TDX)
The Creo Complete Machining Extension provides basic prismatic milling options as well as advanced NC programming capabilities for your model. In fact, you’ll find tools for multi-axis machining, 2.5- to 5-axis mills, 2- to 4-axis lathes (synchronized or not), multi-task machines programming, and 2- to 4-axis wire EDM. Plus it includes extensive tool libraries, and proven manufacturing templates. If you want to develop machined products like a pro, from design to production, this is the extension for you.
What is Creo?
3D parts and assembly modeling is the CAD technique through which the design intent of a part or assembly is accurately and unambiguously described by a 3D virtual model, an almost tangible representation of physical reality. Gain the ability to build a virtual working model and pull it apart on the screen for a closer look; leading to faster, cheaper and easier product design.
