EXAPT and Module Works
ModuleWorks is a provider of software components for the CAD/CAM industry. ModuleWorks' expertise in toolpath creation and machine simulation is well known throughout the CAM industry and its software components and development services are used by the majority of leading CAM suppliers. ModuleWorks 5-axis and simulation software has been used in the manufacture of complex parts for more than a decade and has many users in the global CAD/CAM industry.
ModuleWorks, the leading supplier of CAD/CAM software components for machining and simulation, and EXAPT Systemtechnik GmbH, the specialist for CAD/CAM solutions and tool management, have extended their partnership.
ModuleWorks and EXAPT Systemtechnik GmbH have enjoyed a successful partnership since 2005. EXAPT already uses ModuleWorks 3-axis, 5-axis and cutting simulation technology and has now added the ModuleWorks machine simulation component to strengthen its offering with the latest toolpath analysis and optimization software as well as advanced collision avoidance algorithms.
The ModuleWorks machine simulation component is a kinematic machine simulation software for multi-axis milling, turning, CMM, robotics, woodworking and dental applications. The extensive collection of machine kinematics provides support for almost any kinematic combination, enabling the development of customized applications. EXAPT has fully integrated this strategy into its own system, increasing its proven programming capabilities. Collision and conflict detection as well as the visualization of the building/raw part states and the measurement of the machining state provide detailed error detection and strengthen the EXAPT CAM-System by reliable simulation and visualization of different machining scenarios.
