CGTech has announced that its latest release of Vericut 8.2, includes a new module for NC program optimization: Force Turning. Vericut Force makes an effective NC program for the given material, cutting tools and machining conditions. The result is significant time savings and improved cutting tool and machine life, says the company.

Force is a physics-based NC program optimization module that analyzes and improves cutting conditions to achieve ideal chip thickness, while managing the cutting forces and spindle power required. Vericut 8.2 adds Force Turning to optimize lathe and mill-turn operations when combined with Force Milling. Force Turning makes it easier to create NC programs for cutting inside and outside diameters, shoulders and corners, and tight spaces without the worry of encountering excessive cutting forces or high spindle power demands.

Force provides NC programmers with detailed information about the cutting process. NC programmers can quickly and easily identify problems and unsafe cutting conditions lurking in their NC programs. With a single click, users can review problem-causing cuts that may break a tool or damage a part or machine. Force optimization automatically corrects a variety of 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.
