Due to its combination of turning and milling modules as well as the fully integrated Machine Kinematics Simulation, PEPS offers an optimum solution for the programming of lathe-milling machines. Thanks to the display of the complete machine room, machining processes are simulated and optimized in real time. To avoid input errors, the actual state of the part can be measured at any time during the simulation.
Main and counter spindle machining, simultaneous roughing with two tools, automatic synchronization and collision check by means of the integrated 3D Machine Kinematics Simulation.
Machining strategies such as longitudinal turning, facing and free hand turning are complemented by the machine cycle output for roughing, drilling, thread turning, tapping, grooving and automatic subspindle. Thus, NC programs are significantly shortened, and a subsequent optimization simplified.
The PEPS turning module offers the possibility to modify the technology in various sections of the geometry. Parameters such as feed rate, RPM or the insertion of an arbitrary M-Code and/or G-command are part of it.
The variants programming for families of parts automatically creates geometry and machining features.
The nominal dimension-dependent tolerance center is calculated via the intrasystem ISO tolerance system. The CAD model is not changed by this.
The part to be produced can be measured in the Machine Kinematics Simulation in the current simulation status.
The machining times are output to an Excel list per tool, including the main, rapid motion and nonproductive times.
