FANUC Selects ModuleWorks for CNC Controls

FANUC has chosen material removal simulation software from ModuleWorks to provide workpiece simulation on its CNC controls.

ModuleWorks material removal simulation is multi-axis, multi-purpose simulation technology that increases shop floor productivity by enabling operators to verify NC programs and detect collisions between the workpiece and the tool shaft/holder directly on the control prior to machining. The ModuleWorks simulation technology also comes with a range of advanced analytical tools for NC-program optimization.

The ModuleWorks material removal simulation is available as an optional feature for all FANUC iHMI.


FANUC CORP., established in 1972 at the foot of Mt. Fuji, has consistently pursued the automation of factories since 1956, when it successfully developed the SERVO mechanism for the first time in the Japanese private sector.

With the three pillars of the FA business, which encompass FANUC’s basic NC (numerical control) and servo technology, the ROBOT and ROBOMACHINE businesses which apply this basic technology, and the open platform, “FIELD system,” which is a manifestation of IoT, FANUC contributes to the manufacturing industry in Japan and overseas by promoting automation and efficiency in manufacturing.
