Irvine, CA – CGTech will feature VERICUT version 9.2 in booth #334 at the Western Manufacturing Technology Show (WMTS). The trade show will take place at the Edmonton EXPO Centre in Edmonton, Alberta. VERICUT is the industry standard for simulating CNC machining to detect errors, potential collisions, or areas for improvement. VERICUT runs independently, but also integrates with leading CAM systems through direct interfaces.
WMTS is western Canada’s premier trade show. Companies from diverse industries gather together in a hands-on, dynamic environment to showcase new ideas, trends, and solutions. Attendees can explore and evaluate technologies in machine tools and tooling, workholding, metalworking, welding, and advanced manufacturing solutions from additive manufacturing to automation, robotics, and industry 4.0.
The latest version of VERICUT brings improvements in speed for both collision detection and overall performance, a new 3DLive interface that makes it easier to build realistic set ups using GDML format files, enhanced support for new tool types and hole making tools, plus new features and improvements for reporting and optimization.
“In addition to amazing advancements in simulation speed and our optimization technology, VERICUT 9.2 arms users with new dockable Graphs and Tool Use windows that provide valuable insights into machining processes,” says Gene Granata, VERICUT Product Manager. “Users visualize machining in a new way, to uncover inefficiencies and expose potential problem areas in machining. They can then adjust their strategies, or optimize their NC program to remove these deficiencies before NC programs are run on CNC machines.”
VERICUT 9.2 enhances optimization in both Force and OptiPath. Easily optimize NC programs by setting target Chip Thickness along with any combination of machining limits in Force, such as maximum cutting forces or spindle power, and maximum tool deflection (bending). Users can select “Learn From Results” in Graphs to send specific optimization settings (Force or OptiPath) to cutting tools, or change strategies for corresponding cutters.
Force is a physics-based module for VERICUT that analyzes and optimizes cutting conditions throughout the NC program based on the given material, cutting tool, and machining conditions. Force-optimized programs reduce machine times up to 25% or more while extending tool life by preventing excessive forces and tool deflections.
CGTech’s VERICUT® software is the standard for CNC simulation, verification, optimization, analysis, and additive manufacturing. CGTech also offers programming and simulation software for composites automated fiber-placement, tape-laying, and drilling/fastening CNC machines. VERICUT software is used by companies of different sizes in all industries. Established in 1988, and headquartered in Irvine, California; CGTech has offices worldwide.
