CGTech will feature version 7.4.2 of its Vericut CNC machine simulation, verification and optimization software, which can run independently or be integrated with a separate CAM system. The software detects collisions and near-misses between machine tool components such as axis slides, heads, turrets, rotary tables, spindles, toolchangers, fixtures, workpieces, cutting tools and other user-defined objects. Machine movements can even be simulated while stepping or playing backwards in the software’s Review Mode, the company says. The stand-alone Reviewer function, which allows shopfloor personnel, suppliers, customers and other production engineers to view animations of the CNC machining process, can play forward and backward while removing and replacing material.
