Workshop on Integrated Machine Tool Simulation & Verification April 9-10, 2002 Cypress, California
IS&V Highlights Fully integrated machine tool simulator. New machine tool builder application. In process machine tool and controller considerations: Close loop control From Postprocessor to Machine Tool Driver. Close to Reality simulation: Controller plug-in option. Accurate simulation for controller dependent events. Customizable Virtual NC controller based on Manufacturing Output Manager (MOM). Utilization of UG technologies: Assembly modeling and dCade toolkit library (e.g. collision library). Library managed machine tool, fixtures and devices.

Machine Tool Builder New application to build a machine tool or machine device. Geometric model by Assembly. Build Kinematics model. Define Mounting model. Animate axes for testing. Edit model by Kinematics Tree manipulations.
Machine Tool Configurator Has similar functionality as machine tool builder. Active in Manufacturing application only Used for mounting workpiece and fixtures on machine tool. Other future uses like defining machine state.
Machine Tool Driver (MTD) Generates NC-Program and emulates the NC controller. Motion control - accurate path based on machine configuration. Handles specific machine tool features such as macros, cycles, subroutine call. Key role in machine tool simulation. Fully customizable as TCL program. Textual, graphical and audio feedback triggered by events.

Current IS&V v19 Scope and Status Close loop control architecture Machine tool driver architecture Library managed machine tool, machine devices and fixtures. TCL based customizable virtual NC controller. Plugin interface to machine tool driver. Customizable simulation dialog Closer Integration with CAM processor Machine tool simulation for milling, turning and millturn. New application to build the machine tool model. Collision detection between all machine components. Status: done partially done Focus: System architecture and Simulation
IS&V v20+ Proposed Features Closer integration: 4-axis lathe programming and simulation. Machine state for each operation. Consider machine tool for collision and accessibility (e.g. variable axis machining and hole making). Processor can be enhanced to take advantage of it. Consolidate machine tool kinematics and data(e.g. used in post). Show machine state while programming. (e.g. show part moving when applicable). CME integration Analysis tools for: material removal rate to adjust cutting parameters, loads on cutting tools, forces on fixtures. Focus: CAM Processor Integration
IS&V v20+ Proposed Features (Cont.) Consolidate Visualize and Machine Tool Simulation. IPW and gouge detection in machine tool simulation context. Material removal during machine tool simulation. Machine tool simulation directly from G codes. Interface to commercial plugin (open controllers). Special turning support (e.g., millturn and 4-axis lathe) Generic inverse kinematics engine based on machine tool kinematics. Enhance post builder to build machine tool drivers.
