Irvine, CA – CGTECH will exhibit VERICUT 9.2 in booth #2507 at the Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show (CMTS) from October 4-7 at the International Centre in Toronto, Ontario. VERICUT is the industry standard for CNC machine simulation to detect incorrect tool path motions, collisions, bugs and other areas for improvement.
CMTS brings together leading suppliers of technologies and solutions for manufacturing equipment. The event features the latest in Machine Tools, Tooling, Forming, and Fabricating technologies alongside cutting-edge innovation in Advanced Manufacturing such as Additive Manufacturing, Automation, Robotics, and more.
VERICUT is the recognized industry leader in simulating traditional machining and additive capabilities, including hybrid CNC machines, to prevent errors and verify entire NC manufacturing processes end-to-end. VERICUT 9.2 increases productivity and sustainability with improvements to collision checking and overall performance, as well as enhanced support for “intelligent” cutting tools with cutting performance information and detailed tool reporting. Also added is a 3DLive interface to import GDML files, enabling users to quickly and easily create realistic digital machines and add other moving components (rotary tables, articulating heads, fixtures with moving clamps, etc.) for more realistic simulation.
VERICUT 9.2 also provides important advancements in optimization and monitoring machining processes. VERICUT Force is a physics-based NC program optimization module that can be used with the Additive module to verify and optimize metal cutting operations on hybrid machines. Force makes changes to the program based on the specific stock material, cutting tool properties, and machining conditions encountered during simulation. Force optimized program feed rates maintain an ideal constant chip thickness as much as possible, while simultaneously limiting excessive cutting forces or spindle power requirements.
“With VERICUT 9.2’s amazing improvements to optimization, cutting graphs and ability to import cutting tools with machining ‘intelligence,’ this newest version gives users more information and insights into machining processes,” says Gene Granata, VERICUT Product Manager. “Users can view combinations of Cutting Conditions and Force Conditions, and compare the original versus optimized values in new Graphs and Tool Use windows. These windows can also be docked in VERICUT’s desktop for constant monitoring of machining conditions in real time during simulations. This visibility allows them to spot potential flaws and inefficiencies in machining, so they can adjust their strategies or optimize them before running the programs on their NC machines.
The latest version of VERICUT brings more options for optimization in both Force and OptiPath. Force can set a target Chip Thickness and any combination of Force limits such as maximum force, maximum power, and maximum tool deflection. Users can also choose to “Learn From Graphs” to send optimization settings (for Force or OptiPath) to cutting tools, or change optimization settings for corresponding cutters.
CGTech’s VERICUT® software is the standard for CNC simulation, verification, optimization, analysis, and additive manufacturing. CGTech also offers programming and simulation software for composites automated fiber-placement, tape-laying, and drilling/fastening CNC machines. VERICUT software is used by companies of different sizes in all industries. Established in 1988, and headquartered in Irvine, California; CGTech has offices worldwide.
