CGTech’s Vericut 7.4 includes a variety of enhancements designed to further simplify the process of simulating a CNC machine. The software is designed to eliminate the manually proving out of NC programs, reducing scrap loss and rework. It also is said to optimize NC programs in order to both save time and produce higher quality surface finishes.

Version 7.4’s new features include simplified tool management; new interfaces that enable integrating Vericut with Creo Parametric 3.0, CAMWorks and SolidWorks; the capability of OptiPath to automatically work through multiple setups; and the ability for the user to select a tool from a new “reviewer tool” menu to automatically set the start and end points of the simulation.

A new module called Force is a physics- and mathematics-based modeling software designed to optimize machining rates for machined parts within markets that use automated machining. According to the company, the software determines the optimum speeds for a cutting process and makes the CNC machine cut in the most efficient, fast and reliable way, based on the type of material being cut. It is well-suited for difficult to machine materials, particularly complex multi-axis cuts such as five-axis flank milling.

CGTech will display Vericut 7.4 October 5-10, at the EMO show in Milan, Italy.
