SPRING Technologies has joined Panasonic's Toughbook Engage Partnership Program as an ISV (Independent Software Vendor) Partner. The new partnership creates an unprecedented level of integration, intelligence and instrumentation. This new experience called "NCEXPERIENCETM" pushes the envelope, not only for NC simulation tools, but also by offering manufacturers a new way to manage their NC machines and manufacturing lifestyle.
"Via this partnership, combining new generations of hardware and software, operators on the shop floor can now access realistic 3D machine-tool simulation, tool libraries and documentation (work sheets, etc.), from a robust, ergonomic touch tablet, offering complete operational freedom", explains Solen Carreau, Regional Marketing Manager, Panasonic CPS.
Visitors at the recent Paris Air Show saw NCSIMUL Machine and NCSIMUL Player implemented on Panasonic's Toughpad FZ-G1, its first fully-rugged professional tablet, running Windows 8 Pro, with a screen that can be read in full sunlight thanks to Panasonic's proprietary IPS technology. A multi-touch screen with ten simultaneous detection points, stylus pen and configurable ports are additional capabilities that add up to making this Toughpad easy to use and ideal in the field.
"The partnership provides the link we needed to democratize our NCEXPERIENCETM vision from process planning right through to the workshop. The Toughpad FZ-G1 in the Windows 8 Pro environment delivers a seamless link between the virtual and real machine worlds, enabling SPRING Technologies to execute its strategy of 'ultra-mobility in the workshop' with greater operator independence, access to state-of-the-art software and hardware technologies increasing productivity, offering a new user experience, that is both unique and dedicated", adds Philippe Solignac, Corporate Marketing Director, SPRING Technologies.
