Software Enhancements Increase Power and Improve Efficiency
CGTech’s Vericut 9.0 simulates real NC data on digital twin machines to prevent crashes, identify conflicts between setups and tooling, and ensure machined parts match engineering designs.
The software provides more ways to section the part, streamlines setup for toolpath optimization and significant enhancements for lathe and mill-turn tooling. Vericut’s force optimization reduces machining times up to 70%, even for superalloy metals. It enforces manufacturer’s recommended cutting conditions to greatly extend tool life. The software also detects collisions and near-misses between all machine tool components. It simulates all types of CNC machining, including drilling and trimming of composite parts, water jet, riveting, robots, mill/turn and parallel kinematics. The software operates independently but can also be integrated with leading CAM systems.
A process has been developed that uses a mold with two parting levels, which alternately open.
A quality hot runner system is one of the more important enhancements you can incorporate into a mold to improve molded part quality, reduce production times and remain price competitive.
Turbulent-flow plastic baffles eliminate blow-by, significantly improving cooling and cycle times.
