CGTech has joined Partners in THINC which aims to provide superior technologies that are integrated with Okuma’s CNC machines and controls to deliver advanced manufacturing system solutions.
Okuma claims that CGTech’s product, VERICUT software, has been the industry standard for simulating CNC machining in order to detect errors, potential collisions, or areas of inefficiency. It says that VERICUT enables users to eliminate the process of manually proving-out NC programs. The program also optimises NC programs to both save time and produce higher quality surface finish. VERICUT simulates all types of CNC machine tools and runs standalone, but can also be integrated with most leading CAM systems.
“CGTech is excited to be a member of Partners in THINC so that we may help end-users improve their manufacturing efficiency. By partnering with Okuma and Partners in THINC, CGTech can provide users with accurate machine simulations of Okuma machine tools to ensure that their CNC programs are right the first time, every time,” said John Reed, Managing Director, CGTech.
“Okuma America is very pleased that CGTech has joined Partners in THINC. VERICUT will provide that next level of CNC program and toolpath verification prior to cutting the part. The use of VERICUT, along with a highly capable CAM package, allows Okuma’s customers to fully apply the capabilities and efficiencies of 5-axis machining,” said Jeff Estes, Director of Partners in THINC.
