CGTech has announced that it will exhibit version 7.0 of its Vericut CNC machine simulation and optimisation software on stand 5168 at Mach 2010.

Vericut 7.0 is said to provide enhanced features that reduce the time required for manufacturing engineers to develop, analyse, inspect and document the CNC programming and machining process.

Instead of focusing on new features or add-on modules, CGTech developers have focused on diligent code optimisation and more than 500 customer-driven enhancements.

‘For Vericut 7.0 we focused on the customer’s use of Vericut and how we could improve it,’ said John Reed, managing director, CGTech.

‘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 focussed on system and graphics performance,’ he added.

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

It is designed 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 such as DMG, Mori Seiki, Mazak, Makino and Matsuura.

Vericut 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 will also be demonstrating Vericut Composite Applications at Mach 2010.

Vericut Composite Applications are machine-independent off-line programming and simulation software solutions for automated fibre placement (AFP) CNC machines.

AFP technology is being driven by the increasing use of composites in the next generation of fuel-efficient aircraft.

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.
