(Irvine, California, June 1, 2012) – CGTech, the developer of VERICUT CNC verification and simulation software, and ZOLLER, a leading presetting and measuring machine manufacturer and expert in the field of tool management, have announced a partnership to better serve the customer base of the two companies.
“The ZOLLER vision system provides a direct link between the presetter and VERICUT,” said CGTech President Jon Prun. “Our mutual customers benefit from this partnership by having the ability to scan accurate 3D models of tool assemblies which can be easily transferred to VERICUT in a variety of CAD formats.”
VERICUT simulates CNC machining to identify errors in the NC programs (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.
ZOLLER, founded in 1945 by Eberhard Zoller, is headquartered in Germany with worldwide subsidiaries, amongst others in the USA, China, India, Thailand and Japan. Today, the ZOLLER product portfolio covers all application areas of tool presetting, measuring, inspection and management. With the TMS Tool Management Solutions ZOLLER presents software that offers huge savings potentials through organizing the management of the manufacturing process on the basis of a central data base, which is used by all production units. Its modular design allows users to improve the production processes step-by-step.
“ZOLLER software is fully automatic and precise to the micron” said Alexander Zoller, President, ZOLLER Inc. “With a push of a button, the presetter will scan the tool as built on the shop floor, eliminating inaccuracy and the need to manually model tools. Creating a VERICUT tool library has never been easier.”
Headquartered in Irvine, California CGTech specializes in numerical control (NC/CNC) simulation, verification, optimization and analysis software technology for manufacturing. Since 1988 CGTech’s product, VERICUT® software, has become the industry standard for simulating CNC machining in order to detect errors, potential collisions or areas of inefficiency. With offices worldwide, VERICUT software is used by companies of all sizes, universities/trade schools, and government agencies.
