CMS 5-axis machine
CGTech will exhibit Version 7.2 of VERICUT CNC machine simulation and Verification software at EuroMold, in Frankfurt, Germany, November 27th – 30th, 2012

VERICUT 7.2 features many enhancements to improve speed, thereby reducing the time required for manufacturing engineers to develop, analyze, inspect and document the CNC programming and machining process. Along with proactively adding new features, CGTech developers and engineers are focusing on implementing hundreds of customer-driven enhancements.

VERICUT Version 7.2 runs significantly faster than previous versions as a result of code optimisation and increased use of multi-threading and multiple 64 bit processors. Customers are reporting at least a 20% overall performance boost with some processor intensive operations benefiting even more.

“For VERICUT 7.2 we continue to focus on the customer’s use of VERICUT and how we can improve the simulation process effectiveness,” said Bill Hasenjaeger, Product Marketing Manager. “We added features to the user interface to simplify the most common user actions and invested significant developer hours to increase speed by more thoroughly taking advantage of multiple processors and background processing.” Another new feature is the ability to optimize an NC program from a saved simulation. Users can adjust and re-optimize without rerunning the simulation. A new interactive panel displays cutting conditions immediately anywhere in the machining process. The user can navigate the NC program to evaluate cutting conditions and quickly see the results of adjustments to optimization settings.

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 and Chiron. VERICUT runs standalone, but can also be integrated with leading CAM systems such as Dassault Systemes CATIA, Siemens  NX, Delcam PowerMill, MasterCAM, Vero EdgeCAM, Open Mind  hyperMILL, DP Technology Esprit and Cimatron GibbsCAM.
