(Hove, England, February 19 2010)– CGTech will exhibit version 7 of its VERICUT CNC Machine Simulation and Optimisation software on stand 5168 at MACH 2010.

VERICUT 7 features significant performance-improving enhancements that reduce the time required for manufacturing engineers to develop, analyze, inspect and document the CNC programming and machining process. Instead of focusing on new features or add-on modules, CGTech developers have focused on diligent code optimisation and over 500 customer-driven enhancements.

“For VERICUT 7.0 we focused on the customer’s use of VERICUT and how we could improve it,” said John Reed, Managing Director, CGTech Ltd. “We modified the user interface to create a more natural and obvious sequence to the most common user actions. The user’s interaction has a top-down flow through its graphical tree layout, with context sensitive choices that appear as the user moves along in the NC program simulation. We also focussed on system and graphics performance. The result is a better and faster VERICUT, with users claiming around 20% performance improvement”

VERICUT is CNC machine simulation, verification and optimization software that enables users to eliminate the process of manually proving-out NC programs. It reduces scrap loss and rework. The program also optimizes NC programs in order to both save time and produce higher quality surface finish. VERICUT simulates all types of CNC machine tools, including complex multi-axis machines from leading manufacturers including DMG,  Mori Seiki, Mazak, Makino and Matsuura. VERICUT runs standalone, but can also be integrated with leading CAM systems such as Catia V5, Siemens NX, Pro/E, MasterCAM, EdgeCAM, GibbsCAM, Delcam PowerMill, Missler TopSolidCAM and Open Mind HyperMill.

CGTech will also be demonstrating VERICUT Composite Applications at MACH 2010. VERICUT Composite Applications are machine-independent off-line programming and simulation software solutions for automated Fiber Placement (AFP) CNC machines. AFP technology is being driven by the increasing use of composites in the next generation of fuel efficient aircraft.
