Headquartered in Irvine, California CGTech specialises in numerical control (NC/CNC) simulation, verification, optimisation and analysis software technology for manufacturing. Since 1988 CGTech's product, VERICUT® software, has become the industry standard for simulating CNC machining in order to detect errors, potential collisions or areas of inefficiency. CGTech has an extensive network of offices and resellers throughout the world.
CGTech will feature the latest versions of CGTech’s VERICUT software products for both Machine Tool Simulation and Automated Fibre Placement (AFP) programming and simulation.
VERICUT COMPOSITES APPLICATIONS SUITE
CGTech will be demonstrating VERICUT Composite Applications: VERICUT composite Programming (VCP) and VERICUT Composite Simulation (VCS).
There will be demonstrations of projects that highlight the implementation and use of machine independent off-line NC programming software for AFP machines.
Also featured will be VERICUT Composite Paths for Engineers (VCPe). This application offers the features of VCP but without being configured to program a specific AFP machine. VCPe is aimd at design and production engineers who wish to test the manufacturability of composite paths at an early stage in the design process.
VERICUT MASCHINE TOOL SIMULATION
CGTech will also be exhibiting its latest version 7.2 of VERICUT CNC machine simulation and optimization software. VERICUT simulates all types of CNC machining, including aerospace processes such as multi axis milling, drilling and trimming of composite parts, water jet cutting, robotic and mill/turn machining. VERICUT runs standalone, but can also be integrated with leading CAD/CAM/PLM systems including Dassault Systemes Catia, Siemens NX, PTC, Delcam PowerMill, Open Mind Hypermill, Vero EdgeCAM and MasterCAM..
