Vericut 7 CNC machine simulation, verification and optimization software eliminates manual prove-out of NC programs, the company says. It is also said to reduce scrap loss and rework. The program optimizes NC programs in order to save time and produce higher quality surface finishes. The application simulates virtually all types of CNC machine tools, including those from Mazak, Makino, Matsuura, Hermle, DMG, DIXI, Mori Seiki and Chiron.
The software features performance-improving enhancements that are said to reduce the time required for manufacturing engineers to develop, analyze, inspect and document the CNC programming and machining process. According to the company, the software focuses on improving simulation ease-of-use, speed, accuracy and customer-driven enhancements, rather than new features or add-on modules.
The software runs stand-alone, but can also be integrated with leading CAM systems such as Catia V5, NX, Pro/E, MasterCAM, EdgeCAM and GibbsCAM.
