CGTech’s Vericut version 8.2 includes the Force Turning module for NC program optimization. Force is a physics-based NC program module that analyzes cutting conditions to achieve ideal chip thicknesses, while managing the required cutting forces and spindle power.

The module is designed to optimize lathe turning and mill-turn operations when combined with Force Milling. Force Turning enables users to create NC programs for cutting of inside/outside diameters, shoulders, as well as in corners and tight spaces without encountering excessive cutting forces or high spindle power demands.

Users can review problem-causing cuts, which could cause chatter, break the tool and damage the part or machine. The module automatically corrects these issues, such as excessive cutting forces, metal removal rates, power, torque and tool deflection while simultaneously correcting underutilized cutting conditions by raising them to optimal performance levels.
