FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

(Irvine, California, May 27, 2009) – CGTech, the developer of VERICUT® software, and Doosan Infracore Co., Ltd, a leader in CNC machine tools technology, have announced a partnership to better serve the mutual customer base of the two companies.

VERICUT simulates CNC machining to identify errors in the tool path program (such as collisions, over-travel, gouges, etc.). Using VERICUT, manufacturers can verify the accuracy of the program before it is loaded on the machine, reducing or eliminating the need for the time-consuming manual prove-out process and minimizing material costs. VERICUT also improves machining efficiency by optimizing cutting speeds.

“We are excited about this partnership,” says CGTech Product Marketing Manager, Bill Hasenjaeger. “Manufacturers who buy Doosan machines have invested in sophisticated machinery. Our aim is to offer a software solution designed to help purchasers of this machinery get up and running quickly, while protecting their investment in the long term.”

Doosan Infracore Co., Ltd began making machine tools in 1976, and has expanded its business to include turning centers, machining centers, CNC boring machines, electric discharge machines, aspheric turning centers, and automation systems. By growing its product line through diligence and technological innovations they have become one of the five largest manufacturers of machine tools in the world.

Jeongkeun Lee, Executive Director of Doosan Machine Tools Development Center says, “We think it is important to provide a total solution to our customers and we believe that our partnership with CGTech helps us realize this goal.”
