Company Profile

Headquartered in Irvine, California, CGTech specializes in numerical control (NC/CNC) simulation, verification, optimization, and analysis software for manufacturing. Since 1988 CGTech’s product, VERICUT® software, has become the industry standard for simulating CNC machining in order to detect errors, potential collisions, or areas of inefficiency. VERICUT enables users to eliminate the process of manually proving-out NC programs. It reduces scrap loss and rework. The program also optimizes NC programs in order to both save time and produce higher quality surface finish. VERICUT simulates all types of CNC machine tools, including those from leading manufacturers such as DMG/Mori Seiki, Mazak, Makino, Matsuura, Hermle, and Chiron. VERICUT runs standalone, but can also be integrated with leading CAM systems such as Catia, NX, Creo Parametric, Mastercam, Powermill, EdgeCAM, Hypermill, GibbsCAM and more. CGTech also offers machine-independent off-line programming and simulation software for CNC fiber-placement, tape-laying, auto-drilling, and fastening machines. With offices throughout Europe and Asia, CGTech software is used by companies of all sizes, universities/trade schools, and government agencies.

Simulate CNC Machines

Reduce crashes or other expensive mistakes by simulating the entire CNC machine and setup.

Optimize NC Programs

VERICUT features a totally unique method of improving NC program feed rates so that the machine cuts at maximum efficiency during the entire cycle.

Verify NC Programs

VERICUT simulates the machining process exactly as it occurs on the real machine so you can see errors ahead of time.

VERICUT Composite Applications Product

Machine-independent off-line programming and simulation software for automated fiber-placement and tape-laying machines consists of three components that can be used individually or together: VERICUT Composite Paths for Engineering (VCPe), VERICUT Composite Programming (VCP), and VERICUT Composite Simulation (VCS).
