Fanuc America has a new 5-axis machining simulation training program. The Machining Simulation for Workforce Development offers training for controls operation and part programming in a virtual environment.

“We believe this is an important addition to help close the manufacturing skills gap and to produce more advanced machine tool operators,” says Debra Schug, Fanuc’s CNC strategic communications specialist.

“The addition of 5-axis simulation offers an immersive environment to practice and understand advanced machining techniques,” the company said in a statement. “Since 5-axis machining involves more complex machine setups, the simulation software effectively teaches users how to take advantage of the unique options and features. Additionally, the 5-axis machining simulation software allows operators to experiment with and prove out the machine setup and/or part program before modifying the actual machine.”
