CGTech is powering into Autosport Engineering 2019, which will take place between the 10-11 January at the Birmingham NEC, with its latest physics-based feed rate optimisation module, VERICUT Force.
As the world’s most advanced independent CNC machine tool simulation, verification and optimisation software, VERICUT it as at the heart of the CNC manufacturing process for many of the world’s leading automotive and motorsport engineering businesses. The latest release, VERICUT 8.2, introduces a new optimisation module – Force Turning.
Force is a physics-based NC program optimisation module that analyses and optimises cutting conditions to achieve ideal chip thicknesses, while managing the cutting forces and spindle power required. The latest module, Force Turning, optimise turning, and mill-turn operations, when combined with Force Milling. Force Turning makes it easy for anyone to create NC programs for optimal cutting of inside/outside diameters, shoulders, as well as in corners and tight spaces – without the worry of encountering excessive cutting forces or high spindle power demands.
Force provides NC programmers with detailed information about the cutting process that they never had before. NC programmers quickly and easily identify problems and unsafe cutting conditions lurking in their NC programs. With a single click, users can review problem-causing cuts, which if left uncorrected, could cause chatter, break the tool and damage the part or machine. Force optimisation automatically corrects these issues, such as excessive cutting forces, metal removal rates, power, torque, and tool deflection while simultaneously correcting underutilised cutting conditions by raising them to optimal performance levels.
CGTech also offers Additive Manufacturing capabilities as well as VERICUT Composites application for programming and simulation of Automated Fibre-Placement and Tape-Laying Machines. See the entire VERICUT suite on stand E111 at Autosport Engineering 2019.
The MIA is delighted to support ‘Composites in Motorsport’, a 2-day conference organised by NetComposites, which will look at the innovative use of composites within our industry and future applications of composite solutions within motorsport.
JEC Forum Chicago 2019, with its new format combining business meetings and conference sessions was a great success. In fact, with 201 delegates and 490 business meetings organised on site, it reveals that North American composites industrials value this new format.
Shape provides accurate CNC machined patterns and Rohacell foams to support the manufacture of the carbon composite structures used on their 2019 car that is due to compete at Silverstone on 19 July 2019.
