This paper presents an approach on how to combine the advantages of both, the integration of a real NC control unit in the NC simulation as well as the visualization using the Virtual Reality (VR) technology. As a first step it will be described how to establish an effective coupling between a real NC control unit and a virtual machine model. Therefore the setup of the VR simulation environment, like the preparation of the virtual machine model with its kinematic structure, will be presented. Based on this coupling, different fields of application such as detection and prevention of collisions between the machine axes as well as the material removal at the work piece will be described. Finally the use of this coupling for training purposes will be presented.
