To allow easy and fast interaction between the simulation modules developed by the authors in a Virtual Design environment and the data bases set up in the past by an Italian manufacturer for the traditional design of Machining Centers for High Speed Milling, a graphic interface was created. The work was done utilising advanced features of Matlab suitable, through Microsoft Windows assisted procedures, to extract from Microsoft Excel sheets all sensitive data regarding the machine-tool components, feeding the input module of the simulation package. In this way it is now possible to perform intensive simulation campaigns quickly and easily avoiding the very burdensome procedures demanded for the input to the simulation language. This graphic module also makes it possible to quickly present and compare the results of experimental tests with the outputs of simulation runs.
