Verify & Optimize NC Programs; Simulate CNC Machining with VERICUT® Software from CGTech
VERICUT software is used to simulate CNC machining in order to detect errors, potential collisions, or areas of inefficiency. VERICUT enables NC programmers to correct errors before the program is ever loaded on the CNC machine, thereby eliminating manual prove-outs. VERICUT also optimizes NC program cutting speeds for more efficient machining
VERICUT Composite Applications
VERICUT Composite Applications are machine-independent off-line programming and simulation software solutions for automated composite tape and fiber-placement CNC machines. There are three separate applications: VERICUT Composite Programming (VCP) and VERICUT Composite Simulation (VCS) are already released to the market. A third module, VERICUT Composites Paths for Engineers (VCPe) has all the features of VCP but is not configured to program a specific Automated Fibre Placement (AFP) machine. VCPe provides software tools to allow a design or production engineers to evaluate strategies and test the manufacturability of layup methods for composites parts.
VERICUT Drilling & Fastening (VDAF)
VERICUT Drilling & Fastening (VDAF) is a software application for simulating and programming auto-drilling & fastening machines. VDAF is independent of both the machine and CAD system.
