CGTech offers version 7.2 of Vericut software, a CNC machine simulation, verification and optimization program designed to eliminate manual prove-outs of NC programs for virtually all types of CNC machine tools.
The latest version of the software offers new interface features to simplify common user actions, the company says. It can also take advantage of multiple processors and background processing to improve speed. Another new feature is the ability to optimize an NC program from a saved simulation. Users can adjust and re-optimize without rerunning the simulation. Also, a new interactive panel provides the ability to immediately display cutting conditions anywhere in the machining process. This enables users to navigate the NC program to evaluate cutting conditions and quickly evaluate the results of adjustments to optimization settings.
The company will also demonstrate Vericut Composite Programming and Vericut Composite Simulation. These machine-independent, offline programming and simulation software offerings are designed for automated composite-tape and fiber-placement CNC machines.
