Virtual machining

Virtual machining systems are applying computers and different types of software in manufacturing and production in order to simulate and model behavior and errors of real environment in virtual reality systems [1]. It can provide useful means for products to be manufactured without the need of physical testing on the shop floor. As a result, the time and cost of part production can be decreased [2].


1. Simulated machining process in virtual environments can be used in terms of machine tools modifying [3].

2. The part is modeled and produced in a computer simulation environment with predicted errors in order to achieve the best accuracy in the produced part [2].

3. The system can be used in process planning of machining operations with regards to the desired tolerances of part designing.

4. Optimization techniques can be applied to the simulated machining process in order to increase efficiency of parts production.

5. Finite Element Method (FEM) can be applied to the simulated machining process in virtual environments in order to analyze stress and strain of the machine tool, workpiece and cutting tool.

6. Accuracy of error modeling in prediction of machined surfaces can be analyzed by using the virtual machining systems.

7. Time and cost of accurate production can be decreased by applying rules of production process management to the simulated manufacturing process in the virtual environment.

8. Efficiency of part manufacturing can be improved by analyzing the production methods.
