CGTech was on-hand at the National Leadership and Skills Conference (NLSC), hosted June 22-26, to help grade multiple SkillsUSA/NIMS events related to Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machining. More than 16,000 people — including students, teachers and business partners — participated in the weeklong event.

CGTech support engineers used Vericut to evaluate NC program accuracy in the CNC Mill, Lathe and Technician contests, which evaluate contestents’ prepration for employment in CNC programming and recognize outstanding students for excellence and professionalism. The software was also used to ensure programs ran without violating safety standards or damaging machines, and to compare virtual workpieces with design models.  

Vericut machine simulation detects collisions and near-misses between all machine tool components such as axis slides, heads, turrets, rotary tables, spindles, tool changers, fixtures, workpieces, cutting tools, and other user-defined objects. Machine movements can also be simulated while stepping or playing backwards in review mode.
