At the Smart Manufacturing Experience from April 30 to May 2, 2018, in Boston, Massachussetts, CGTech will feature Vericut version 8.1 in booth 639. Vericut CNC machine simulation, verification and optimization software simulates all types of CNC machining, additive, and hybrid manufacturing processes. The software operates independently but can be integrated with leading CAM systems.

CGTech says that the tools help NC programmers evaluate method efficiency, reduce production time and detect errors before going to the shop floor. At the show, CGTech Technical Support Engineer Jared Preece will lead a knowledge-bar session on choosing part optimization strategies.

According to the company, Vericut’s Force module reduces machining time, increases tool life and produces a finished product of higher quality by optimizing toolpath feed rates. Graphs and charts are enhanced to display in real-time, revealing cutting conditions and forces as they are encountered by cutting tools. The company says that this helps NC programmers “see” machining in a more analytical way and immediately identifies undesirable cutting conditions. Spikes in the graphs show when forces, chip loads, tool deflection and material removal rates exceed a tool’s recommended performance parameters. With one click on the chart, the responsible NC program record is identified and the graphics area displays the corresponding cut helping NC programmers to better understand cutting processes.

CGTech has added several new modules, including additive, grinder-dressing, and a team-center interface. The company says that many enhancements improve Vericut’s core functionality. Examples include easier sectioning that extends to machine views, X-Caliper dimension labels displayed with models, a new report template editor and easier G-Code offsets.
