(Irvine, California) – CGTech will exhibit version 7 of VERICUT CNC machine simulation and optimization software at the PDx/amerimold show:
Booth 625          
Cincinnati, OH  
May 11-13, 2010

VERICUT Product/Function Overview:
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 those from leading manufacturers such as Mori Seiki, Mazak, Makino, Matsuura, Hermle, DMG, DIXI, and Chiron. VERICUT runs standalone, but can also be integrated with leading CAM systems such as Catia V5, NX, Pro/E, MasterCAM, EdgeCAM and GibbsCAM.

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 focused on diligent code optimization 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 Bill Hasenjaeger, Product Marketing Manager. “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.”

CGTech will also seek to demystify the many types of NC program “optimization” with a presentation at the amerimold Technical Conference. The presentation, to be given by CGTech Sales Engineer Ken Skovran, will provide an overview of different types of cutting optimization, how they are implemented, and how they work.
