Version 9.0 of CGTech’s Vericut software simulates real NC data on digital twin machines to prevent crashes, identify conflicts between setups and tooling, and ensure machined parts match engineering designs. Vericut detects collisions and near-misses between all machine tool components such as axis slides, heads, turrets, rotary tables, spindles, toolchangers, fixtures, workpieces, cutting tools and other user-defined objects. The program can also simulate all types of CNC machining, including drilling and trimming of composite parts, waterjet cutting, riveting, robotics, mill-turn and parallel kinematics. The software operates independently but can also be integrated with other CAM systems.

The software provides realistic graphic displays that can be rotated or zoomed while cutting. Other features in version 9.0 include the ability to instant access to workpiece and CNC machine viewing as well as improved connectivity to tooling websites and cloud repositories. Major functions in any view (Section, X-Caliper and AUTO-DIFF) can be easily switched between workpiece and machine views, layouts and docking arrangements.

Vericut 9.0 provides more ways to section parts, streamlines setup for toolpath optimization, and enhances lathe and mill-turn tooling. Vericut’s Force optimization reduces machining times, even for superalloy metals, the company says. It enforces manufacturers’ recommended cutting conditions to extend tool life.
