Vericut 7.3 flyer - .PDF file.

At the Advanced Engineering 2014 group of events, which includes the Aero Engineering and Composites Engineering shows, CGTech will exhibit Vericut 7.3. Vericut is CGTech’s machine tool simulation, verification and feed rate optimisation software.

The stand will also feature the company’s Composites Applications software for the programming and simulation of automated fibre placement (AFP) and automated tape laying (ATL).

Vericut simulates all types of CNC machining including aerospace processes such as multi-axis milling, drilling and trimming of composite parts, water-jet cutting, robotic and mill/turn machining. It is used to simulate CNC machine tools from brands including Makino, Starrag, Heller, Matsuura, DMG MORI and Mazak.

Vericut runs standalone but can also be integrated with CAD/CAM/PLM systems including Dassault Systemes Catia, Siemens PLM NX CAM, Delcam Powermill, Vero EdgeCAM, Open Mind Hypermill, DP Esprit and Missler TopsolidCAM.

Demonstrations of Vericut Composite Paths for Engineering (VCPe), Vericut Composite Programming (VCP) and Vericut Composite Simulation (VCS) will provide visitors with an opportunity to understand the steps needed to get from a CAD-designed composite part to CNC programs that drive automated composite machinery.

There will be demonstrations of projects that highlight the implementation and use of machine-independent off-line NC programming and simulation software for AFP machines including robotic AFP cells. In addition, CGTech will demonstrate its new programming and simulation software for ATL.

Vericut Drilling and Fastening is a new software application for simulating and programming auto-drilling and fastening machines. These machines are used to assemble large aero-structures and it is essential to avoid programming errors and collisions at such a late stage in the aircraft manufacturing process.

Vericut allows the user to program drilling and fastener assembly operations in a virtual machine tool environment and provides simulation to check for a variety of potentially disastrous error conditions. Like all Vericut software the new module interfaces to leading CAD/CAM/PLM systems and is independent of the assembly machine manufacturer.

CGTech will be found on stand C11 in Hall 5 at the event, which takes place on 11–12 November 2014.

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.
