One company will win 2 days of on-site training ($3,500 minimum value)


Irvine, California – In coordination with the upcoming release of VERICUT 7, CGTech has scheduled 19 North American VERICUT User’s Exchange (VUE) events in 2009. Attendees will learn about new software features, tips & tricks for improving manufacturing efficiency, and will have the opportunity to express ideas about the future direction of the software. All of the tips & tricks on the agenda were customer-driven following a survey of VERICUT users.

After the events, one attendee from North America will be selected at random to win two days of on-site training and consulting for his company. A CGTech Support Engineer will travel to the winning company to provide two days of custom training and/or implementation services, depending on the company’s needs (a value of $3,500.00, plus CGTech will pay all necessary expenses).

“We decided to offer this award to underscore that in our experience, long term, the most successful shops are those that take full advantage of the slower times,” said Jon Prun, President, CGTech. “We recognize that some manufacturers are struggling, but bear markets always turn back to bull at some point and it’s important to be ready. In recent years we have heard from many of our customers that they are too busy to send their programmers to training, or to spend the time required to implement new software. The trepidation over spending any money during slow times is understandable, but it is the perfect time to research and implement new tools and strategies for becoming more efficient.”

“Having been in business for more than 21 years, we’ve been around long enough to have seen most of the challenges manufacturers face,” Prun continued. “We seek out and are constantly exposed to new manufacturing methods and technologies and we encourage all our customers to use us as a resource – beyond VERICUT support – to help improve their NC manufacturing effectiveness.”

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 developer resources have prioritized on diligent code optimization and customer-driven enhancements.

At VUE, CGTech will also be demonstrating recent advancements in VERICUT Composite Applications. VERICUT Composite Applications are machine-independent off-line programming and simulation software solutions for automated composite tape and fiber-placement CNC machines. There are two separate applications: VERICUT Composite Programming (VCP) & VERICUT Composite Simulation (VCS).
