ASCENTEC adopts NCSIMUL Machine from SPRING Technologies for its new 5-axis horizontal machining center

“High-speed manufacturing has been one of the greatest strengths of our business,” explains David Gilliat, Director of Manufacturing and Machining Technology

Ascentec Engineering was established in 2001 by a team of process and manufacturing engineerswith a solid background in electronics manufacturing processes. The founders brought with them experience in designing innovative and productivity-enhancing tools and fixtures that held up to the technology changes within the industry and gained an enviable reputation as an EMS industry leader for tooling solutions. In 2007, Ascentec began a Precision Machining division focused on providing quick-turn prototype and short-run production contract machining, along with integrated assembly services.

It’s an unhappy day indeed when a CNC machine crashes and it may take days, perhaps weeks, for the damage to be assessed and repaired. During that time, the shop staff not only loses the machine’s productive capacity but worries that it may not be possible to restore the machine to its previous ability to hold tight tolerances. It is bad enough when a vertical 3-axis CNC mill crashes, but when it happens to a 5-axis system that costs many times more, the downside is more serious. With this in mind, Ascentec Engineering began researching the market for advanced machine simulation software when it anticipated the installation of its first 5-axis horizontal machining center in 2011.
After narrowing the field to two simulation packages, the company selected NCSIMUL Machine from SPRING Technologies Inc. based on the software’s capabilities, ease of use and integration with its Mastercam CAD/CAM software from CNC

Indian production site using NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS?
Mr. Eric Lemaire, Asia-Pacific Manager - SPRING TECHNOLOGIES
The Manufacturing sector in many countries is in a state of transition. Growing in emerging economies; shrinking but becoming more productive in advanced economies. To stay afloat on a global scale, the manufacturing giants tend to increase their productivity and move up the manufacturing value chain to compete on technology and innovation.
It is a daily challenge for Manufacturers in Aerospace Industry to find the right manufacturing partners abroad and when targeted, make sure that the productivity levels, the production processes and know-how are kept agile and flexible while maintaining a high security and competitive level. In a nutshell, the goal is to Secure and Optimize the transfer of your production to your partner site as fast and easy as possible.

SPRING Technologies enables the optimal use of manufacturing companies’ CNC machines, maximizing their productivity. Production transfers and new part manufacturing launches time are dramatically reduced and kept to minimum using SPRING Technologies integrated, intelligent, instrumented Solutions. The NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS portfolio integrates the complete machining process, in real time, including cutting and tool management, post-processing, NC Simulation, technical content publishing and Real-time monitoring of the Workshop.

When Prototyping and Production Collide Simulation Breaks the Bottleneck

A great article in The Magazine for Western Metalworking Manufacturing written by Sean Buur

Cascade Corporation employs machine simulation to optimize production and prototyping manufacturing streams on the same machining centers.

Advanced CNC machine simulation software is helping a leading Portland, Oregon manufacturer of hydraulically operated fork lift truck accessories keep pace with aggressive schedules for prototyping and production manufacturing of hydraulic valve bodies on the same machining centers. The software (NCSIMUL from SPRING Technologies) makes it unnecessary to spend valuable on-machine hours single-stepping through first piece CNC programs to ensure that they will run without encountering interferences. As a result, prototype work rarely interferes with production manufacturing and design engineers get their prototype parts faster.

Cascade Corporation’s innovative material handling solutions enable lift trucks to become more versatile and efficient material handling tools. They rely on intricate hydraulic valve designs that make it possible to pull, push, clamp, lift, side-shift and rotate practically any unit load imaginable. These products are made and shipped to Europe, Asia and many other parts of the world from its manufacturing facility in Portland, Oregon.

Prototypes for hydraulic valve bodies critical to the success of the next generation of Cascade products are also made in the same plant and on the same manufacturing equipment as the full production components. Manufacturing prototypes on the same equipment allows the company to transition swiftly and smoothly into production manufacturing when a new design is released. It also means that prototype manufacturing must be conducted in off hours so that it does not disrupt very active production manufacturing schedules.
