FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Hove, England – CGTech will showcase its expanded range of software applications for the aerospace industry on stand 265A in the UK pavilion at IDEF13 in Istanbul, Turkey.
VERICUT Machine Tool Simulation Applications
CGTech’s VERICUT is widely used in aerospace and defence to improve the efficiency of all types of CNC Machine Tools. VERICUT is CNC machine simulation, verification and optimization software that enables users to eliminate the process of manually proving-out NC programs. VERICUT simulates all types of CNC machining, including drilling and trimming of composite parts, water jet, robotics, mill/turn and parallel kinematics. VERICUT runs standalone, but can also be integrated with leading CAM systems including Dassault Systemes CATIA, Siemens NX, Delcam PowerMill and Open Mind HyperMill.
VERICUT 7.2 will be on display during the show featuring a range of aerospace applications.
VERICUT Composites Applications
Throughout the show, CGTech will be demonstrating VERICUT Composite Applications: VERICUT Composite Paths for Engineering (VCPe), VERICUT Composite Programming (VCP) & VERICUT Composite Simulation (VCS).
visitors will have the opportunity to receive a thorough overview of the steps needed to get from a CAD designed composite part to CNC programs that drive automated composite machinery. There will be updated information on projects that highlight the implementation and use of machine independent off-line NC programming and simulation software for AFP machines including robot AFP cells.
In addition, CGTech will demonstrate its new programming and simulation software for Automated Tape Laying (ATL) by showcasing an application on an mTorres ATL machine.
VERICUT Drilling and Fastening Applications
VERICUT Drilling and Fastening is a new software application for simulating and programming auto-drilling and fastening machines. These machines are used to assemble large aero-structures and it is essential to avoid programming errors and collisions at such a late stage in the aircraft manufacturing process. VERICUT allows the user to programme drilling and fastener assembly operations in a virtual machine tool environment and provides simulation to check for a variety of potentially disastrous error conditions. Like all VERICUT software the new module interfaces to leading CAD/CAM/PLM systems such as Dassault Systemes CATIA and Siemens NX, and is independent of the assembly machine manufacturer.
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 Including UK, Germany, France and Italy and network of resellers VERICUT software is used by companies of all sizes in all industry sectors.
