CGTech (Irvine, California) the developer of Vericut software, and Makino Milling Machine Co., Ltd. (Tokoyo, Japan and Mason, Ohio) a leader in CNC machine tools technology, reported renewing both company’s strategic corporate partnership to better serve CGTech and Makino’s mutual customer base. The companies have worked together for more than 30 years to provide leading edge solutions to manufacturers around the globe.

According to CGTech, Vericut has become the industry standard for simulating CNC machining in order to detect errors, potential collisions or areas of inefficiency since 1988. Vericut is also said to enable NC programmers to reduce prove-outs, virtually eliminate errors and optimize NC programs for faster, more efficient machining.

For more 80 years, Makino says it has been introducing innovative solutions that boost productivity and profitability. By integrating visionary digital technology with premium performance machines, Makino helps companies fundamentally transform.

“We are excited about this ongoing partnership,” says CGTech president, Jon Prun. “Manufacturers who buy Makino machines have invested in world-leading machinery. Our aim is to offer a software solution designed to help purchasers of Makino machines get up and running quickly, while protecting their investment in the long term.”

“Simulation software is very important for our business and machines.” says Makino Milling Machine Co., Ltd. president, Shinichi Inoue. “Makino uses Vericyt in simulations, and maintains an indispensable cooperative relationship with CGTech to help promote advancements to digital twins in the future.” He adds, “As a Japanese company and as a global Makino, I thank CGTech for their cooperation and look forward to deepening our cooperative relationship with them."

According to both companies, the partnership provides peace-of-mind to Makino machine tool owners, allowing them to protect their investment in the highest quality machines with Vericut’s comprehensive simulation capabilities. Utilizing Vericut digital twins of Makino machines to verify the accuracy and quality of NC programs is also said to ensure that users’ NC programs will perform on even the most complicated machines, as intended, with the most accurate collision-detection available. Inefficient motion or programming errors that could potentially ruin a part, damage the fixture, or break the cutting tool can be corrected before the program is run on the machine tool itself.
