Virtual manufacturing is used to preview the machining processes by the help of developed process models. By this approach failures in the processes can be predicted beforehand. Also a process that is used in the production can be optimized by virtual machining.
The difference of this software from classical CAD/CAM is that one can monitor the physical aspects such as cutting force, power, torque, temperature distribution, surface errors, and stresses.
Chatter, being one of the major problems in machining operations, cannot be solved by classical mechanical insights by try-error approach. Chatter can be predicted by scientific approaches and can be suppressed by analytical solutions and measurements by also increasing the efficiency of the process.
The probability you loose time and money is quite high if you are still choosing the cutting parameters from the catalogs or by try-error methods. You can increase your machining efficiency by using the state of the art scientific approaches. MAXIMA can be your solution partner in this regard.
