CGTech has announced that it will exhibit version seven of its Vericut CNC machine simulation and optimisation software at Mach 2010.

The company said Vericut v7 features enhancements that reduce the time required for manufacturing engineers to develop, analyse, inspect and document the CNC programming and machining process.

CGTech said for Vericut v7, it had focused on the customer’s use of the software and how it could be improved.

John Reed, managing director at CGTech, said: ‘We modified the user interface to create a more natural and obvious sequence to the most common user actions.

‘The user’s interaction has a top-down flow through its graphical tree layout, with context-sensitive choices that appear as the user moves along in the NC program simulation.

‘We also focused on system and graphics performance,’ he added.

Vericut is CNC machine simulation, verification and optimisation software that enables users to eliminate the process of manually proving-out NC programs.

It is said to reduce scrap loss and rework.

The program also optimises NC programs in order to save time and produce a higher-quality surface finish.

Vericut simulates all types of CNC machine tools, including complex multi-axis machines from manufacturers including DMG, Mori Seiki, Mazak, Makino and Matsuura.

The software runs standalone, but can also be integrated with CAM systems such as Catia v5, Siemens NX, Pro/E, MasterCAM, EdgeCAM, GibbsCAM, Delcam Powermill, Missler TopsolidCAM and Open Mind Hypermill.

CGTech is the developer of Vericut CNC machine simulation, verification and optimisation software. Vericut protects CNC machine tools against potentially disastrous collisions by providing a virtual machining environment for program simulation and testing of post processed CNC code. Vericut is used extensively to increase the efficiency of complex five-axis machining centres and Mill/Turn machines.

Vericut is a standalone product but can also be integrated with all leading CAD/CAM/PLM systems including Catia, Siemens NX, PTC, Delcam Powermill. EdgeCAM, MasterCAM and Open Mind Hypermill.

CGTech has recently released new programming and simulation software products for the rapidly growing CNC composites automated fibre placement market.

CGTech is the recognised world leader in CNC simulation and verification software. Based in Irvine California CGTech have subsidiaries in UK, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, China and resellers throughout the world.
