CGTech will showcase its software applications for the aerospace industry at the Dubai Airshow on 12-16 November.
VERICUT, a CNC machine simulation, verification and optimisation software, is used in aerospace and defence to improve the efficiency of all types of CNC machine tools. Aerospace applications featuring CNC machine tool suppliers including DMG MORI, MAZAK, Starrag, GROB, CMS and Hermle will be featured.
Throughout the show, CGTech will be demonstrating VERICUT Composite Applications: VERICUT Composite Programming (VCP) and VERICUT Composite Simulation (VCS).
CGTech will feature projects that highlight the use of off-line NC programming and simulation software for automated fibre placement (AFP) machines and automated tape laying (ATL) machines including robot cells. VERICUT Composites Applications are machine independent and machines from composites machinery suppliers including Electroimpact and mTorres will be featured.
VERICUT Drilling and Fastening (VDAF) is software for simulating and programming the auto-drilling and fastening machines which are used to assemble large aero structures. VERICUT allows the user to program drilling and fastener assembly operations in a virtual machine tool environment and provides simulation to check for a variety of potentially disastrous error conditions. VDAF interfaces to CAD/CAM/PLM systems such as Dassault Systèmes CATIA and Siemens NX, and is independent of the assembly machine manufacturer.
