Eureka G-Code

Eureka G-Code simulates the actual G-Code to be sent to the machine, regardless of how it was created, manually or post-processed, from a CAD/CAM system. With no additional customisation, it emulates all the most popular CNC control on the market including Fanuc, Siemens, Heidenhain, Haas, Fagor, Okuma, MoriSeiki, Mazak, Fidia, Selca, Osai, Num among others. Real time simulation of material removal checking for errors such as rapid contact movements and collisions with design model and fittings, Eureka not only provides simulation. It analyses machining results in multiple scenarios to detect and eliminate errors, decreases production times and allows the production of time summary reports.  You can detect any potential error, such as collisions or overloads, in advanced from your PC.

Eureka Robot

Eureka has been leading the robot milling application arena for many years, making possible to create models and artistic objects combining the flexibility of a 6-Axis industrial robot with the reliable technology of a CNC machining centre.
Real-time simulation with millions of robot movements thanks to its calculation technology.
  • Realistic 3D simulation of the whole work cell
  • Real time material removal simulation
  • Collisions, singularities and out of limit detection
  • Automatic tool change management
  • Handling of tool paths with millions of points
  • Interactive toolpath editing
  • Automatic Optimisation of robot and external axes movements
  • Powerful visual tools for fixing collisions, singularities and axes path limits
  • Machining with disks and blades
  • Machining with the workpiece mounted on the robot and fixed tools
  • Designed for all industrial robots on the market:  ABB, Kuka, Fanuc, Motoman, Kawasaki, Staubli, Comau, …
  • Can be interfaced with the most popular CAD/CAM and tools management systems: SolidCAM, ALPHACAM, VISI, RTM, EDGECAM, GO2CAM, CAMWORKS, CREO, MASTERCAM, CIMATRON, GIBBSCAM, DELCAM, WORKNC, TEBIS, ZW3D, TDM, WINTOOL, ZOLLER TMS.
  • Eureka converts APT code generated by a CAM system into a program for a 6 or more axes robot cell, using a dedicated postprocessing module.  During the conversion process Eureka calculates the optimal movements of the robots and of the external axes simulating all aspects of machining.
  • The software detects problems like singularities, collisions, out of limits and it offers powerful, easy-to-use tools to overcome them. Collisions are computed considering all parts, including the machined stock. The 64-bit version allows very fast processing of unlimited size files.
  • Eureka Robot supports any number of external axes (rotary tables, linear rails, etc.), automatic tool changes, multiple spindles, shared motors, fixed tools and robot-mounted parts.
  • G Code simulation and generation for robot machining with the tool mounted on the robot or workpiece on the robot.
  • G code simulation and generation for spray painting
  • Collision detection in robot machining processes
  • Limit switch detection

Eureka Chronos

Eureka Chronos uses A.I. based algorithms to optimise G-Code programs adjusting feed rates while maintaining the original CAM programs toolpath geometry

AI algorithms enable fully automated optimisation All you need is:

  • The NC program
  • A 3D stock model
