Vericut 7 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. Instead of focusing on new features or add-on modules, the software focuses on diligent code optimization and customer-driven enhancements.
According to the company, CNC machine simulation, verification and optimization software enables users to eliminate the process of manually proving-out NC programs. It reduces scrap loss and rework. The program also optimizes NC programs to save time and produce higher quality surface finish. The software is said to simulate virtually all types of CNC machine tools, including those from manufacturers such as Mazak, Makino, Matsuura, Hermle, DMG, DIXI, Mori Seiki and Chiron. The software runs stand-alone, but it can also be integrated with CAM systems such as Catia V5, NX, Pro/E, MasterCAM, EdgeCAM and GibbsCAM.
