Today a most realistic simulation of machining processes is a decisive factor for the quality assurance of automation processes in many areas of metalworking production technology. Of particular relevance for the simulation are very accurate modeling of the workpiece geometry and an accurate kinematic and geometrical description of the cutting process.
In the Virtual Machining Library (VML), new algorithms for the simulation and visualization of workpiece processing were developed. This makes it possible to simulate machining processes in real time with the necessary accuracy for industrial applications. For the interactive visualization of the generated complex geometry models new massively parallel algorithms are applied, which use best the potential of modern, hybrid hardware architectures, such as Multi-/Many-Core Central Processing Units (CPUs) and General Purpose Graphic Processing Units (GPGPUs). Compared to implementations for conventional computer architectures VML provides scalable performance and enables real-time visualizations of workpiece machining in FullHD resolution.
