FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Irvine, California – CGTech will preview the upcoming release of VERICUT CNC machine simulation and optimization software at the International Manufacturing Technology Show show:

IMTS
Booth E-3846
Chicago, IL
September 13-18, 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, hyperMILL  and GibbsCAM.

VERICUT 7.1 features significant enhancements to reduce the time required for manufacturing engineers to easily develop, analyze, inspect and document the CNC programming and machining process. Along with proactively adding new features, CGTech developers and engineers focused on addressing hundreds of customer-driven enhancements.

“VERICUT 7.1 builds on CGTech’s highly successful VERICUT 7.0 release and subsequent point releases that contained over 700 customer requests delivered throughout 2010,” said Product Marketing Manager Bill Hasenjaeger.  “Version 7.1 contains nearly 200 customer requests and further improvements to VERICUT’s user interaction, simulation capabilities & analysis, cutting tool creation, and CAD/CAM integration.”

A few of the many features coming in VERICUT 7.1 include the ability to record and display cutting conditions, the addition of multiple turning orientations and specialty cutting methods, and improvements to simulating complex subroutines and advanced CNC control features in VERICUT.  There has also been an emphasis placed on simplifying the creation of VERICUT reports.  With the new VERICUT report enhancements, users can preview and customize their own reports to include features such as pictures in tables, links to files and links to websites.  These reports have become increasingly valuable for VERICUT users to share CNC machining process information throughout their organization and supply chain.

VERICUT 7.1 is currently being beta tested and is scheduled for release in the fourth quarter of 2010.
