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.
Haydale has been working with National Grid to calculate the benefit case of its Composite Transition Piece (CTP), using a method developed by National Grid and verified by PwC during a previous audit.
Launched in 2017, JEC Startup Booster is the leading and unique start-up competition in the world of composites in which hundreds of start-ups participate to pitch their breakthrough innovations in front of a jury of experts from international groups and companies involved in the making of innovative materials.
Revolution Fibres has collaborated with Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Company to develop a next-generation nanofibre interleaving veil for improving the toughness of carbon fibre composites.
