Vericut 8.2 optimization software will be demonstrated at Top Shops Conference at IMTS in Chicago, Illinois. 

CGTech will demonstrate Vericut 8.2 software at the Modern Machine Shop Top Shops Conference on Thursday, September 13, 2018 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.

The Top Shops Conference is the ideal place to discover vital tools like Vericut simulation software, which helps shop owners find a competitive advantage. Machine simulation detects collisions, close calls and over-travel errors. Machine movements are simulated while stepping or playing backwards in Vericut‘s review mode.

Modernized user interface 

Vericut 8.2 is packed with convenience features. A right-mouse-button ribbon enables the user’s favorite functions to be one click away and provides access to external applications. The configurable head-up display (HUD) improves simulation monitoring and visibility by showing the NC program, or machining and cutting status information, overlaid on top of graphical views. HUD provides constant access to important details about the process, while keeping simulation views as large as possible. Alert symbols and colors highlight errors and warnings found in NC programs, making it easier to identify problem sources.

Force turning

Force is a physics-based optimization module that analyzes cutting conditions to achieve ideal chip thicknesses, while managing the cutting forces and spindle power required. Vericut 8.2 adds force turning to optimize lathe turning and mill-turn operations, when combined with force milling. Force turning makes it easy for users to create NC programs for optimal cutting of inside/outside diameters, shoulders as well as in corners and tight spaces.

Advancements for additive manufacturing

The software adds realism to additive simulation and detects common error conditions programmers face. Additive material is applied via the additive path, or projected to the part surface for a natural deposition behavior. Material build rates vary based on changes in bead overlap, acute corner motions and starting/stopping at the same location. Users verify that laser focal distance stays within the tolerance range required for proper cladding and that excessive material “overhang” conditions do not exist, which can lead to improper adherence. Warnings are given for non-conforming additive conditions to help programmers determine when additive strategies are likely to fail or when it may be beneficial to make a milling cut.
