Irvine, California – CGTech will preview the upcoming release of VERICUT CNC machine simulation and optimization software at the AeroDef Exposition show:

AeroDef       Booth E-1224           Anaheim, CA     April 5-7, 2011

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, Creo (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. Version 7.1 contains over 400 customer requests and further improvements to VERICUT’s user interaction, simulation capabilities & analysis, cutting tool creation, and CAD/CAM integration.

CGTech will also be demonstrating VERICUT Composite Applications at AeroDef. 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).

Attendees interested in learning more about VCP & VCS software can attend the AeroDef Conference presentation, “Programming and Simulating Automated Fiber Placement (AFP) CNC Machines: How Difficult Could It Be?” The presentation, to be given by CGTech’s National Sales Manager Jim Huddy, will be part of the Advanced Tool & Modeling Concepts session on Thursday, April 7, 2011.
