The definition of a “digital twin” is different for every organization based on its capabilities, and not all digital twins are created equally. More accurate digital twins utilize critical data, information, and metrics that allow users to optimize their manufacturing processes in ways that go beyond simulation and verification of an NC program.
New and developing advances in technology also allow for users to connect directly to CNC machines on the shop floor. Shops can run a precheck to verify that machine set up information matches what was previously simulated to ensure no new issues are introduced.
Webinar attendees can expect to learn about:
- The digital twin of the CNC machine, including kinematics, models, and CNC control functionality.
- The twin of the part setup, including the dimensions and material of the workpiece being machined, and the fixtures holding it in place.
- The twin of the cutting tools, including spindle power demands, tool deflection, and changing cutting conditions.
- How establishing a live connection to machines on the shop floor can enhance digital twins used in simulation.
