CGTech, developer of VERICUT software for simulating CNC machine tools, has announced that as a result of the CGTech-MachiningCloud-Iscar partnership, VERICUT users can directly download Iscar tool assemblies and use them within VERICUT software with minimal effort.

IQCloud interface

Most cutting tool manufacturers now make 3D solid model data available and VERICUT can read this model data for use in the simulation process.

Iscar’s MachiningCloud application, named IQCloud, increases customers’ productivity by offering instant access to the company’s complete and up-to-date cutting tool data.

Tool assemblies can be grouped into ‘jobs’, and the complete job can be imported into VERICUT’s tool manager with only a few clicks.

Key benefits

  • According to CGTech managing director John Reed, the accuracy of the data input into VERICUT directly affects the output. So an accurate model of the cutting tool and holder is required for the effective and accurate simulation of the machining process.
  • Reed added: ‘We always look for simple ways to reduce the time to set up VERICUT and ensure it correctly mimics the operations. Having direct access to the Iscar cutting tool product data through the MachiningCloud app reduces the frustration and time associated with obtaining the tooling information needed.’
  • VERICUT CNC machine simulation, verification and optimisation software simulates all types of CNC machining, including drilling and trimming of composite parts, water jet, riveting, robots, mill/turn and parallel kinematic/hexapods. It operates independently, but can also be integrated with numerous CAM systems.

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.
