Identify Problem Areas in NC Programs with Force Analysis

The Force Analysis module enables users to graphically analyze cutting conditions generated by an NC program against selected target values to reveal areas of opportunity and areas of concern.

Force Analysis can be used to identify problem areas in NC programs such as poor cutting efficiency, potential tool breakage, or other safety concerns related to excessive cutting conditions. Once identified, CAM systems or manual editing can be used to apply corrective actions, then re-analyze to see if more desirable or safer cutting is achieved.

The Force Analysis module allows you to graphically see the interaction between the cutter and the material and display the real chip thickness in an NC program block by block. Measured data exposes forces applied to the cutter, spindle power demands, and potential for cutter deflection.

Use Force Analysis Graphs to analyze Cutting Data such as:

• Chip Thickness:

• Total Force:

• Radial/Axial Force:

• Machine Force

• Torque and Power

• Deflection

• Axial Depth

• Radial Width

• Contact Area

• Volume Removal Rate

• Feed Per Minute

• Feed Per Revolution

• Feed Per Tooth

• Spindle Speed

• Surface Speed
