Recently Released: Production Module v7.4 — see what’s new!

Production Module is a premier NC toolpath optimization software that integrates physics-based material models, CAD/CAM data, tooling and workpiece geometries to analyze and optimize machining processes. Our machining solution allows users to:

  • Balance tool loads
  • Analyze each toolpath line, calculate forces, spindle power, temperature and more. 
  • Compare calculated outputs to optimization limits
  • Raise/lower feedrates to attain optimal machining performance
  • Kick-start optimization using advanced algorithms that suggest optimization values
