An industry leading event which will help manufacturers to become more efficient and cost effective has been announced.  

CGTech, the developer of VERICUT CNC simulation, verification and optimisation software, has partnered with KYOCERA SGS and LMg Solutions to hold the event which will demonstrate emerging technologies that help manufacturers realise productivity improvements.  

Taking place at the KYOCERA SGS head office in Wokingham on 22 May,  the theme of the Lunch & Learn event is single operation manufacture and optimisation of complex components. Attendees will be able to hear from industry leaders on how to apply new technologies to make significant time savings, improve cutting tool and machine life and maximise and reduce the costs of manufacturing machined aerospace and automotive components.

At the event CGTech will shine a light on the features and benefits of its VERICUT Force Milling module with live software demonstrations and presentations. Force is a physics-based toolpath optimisation module that determines the maximum reliable feed rate for a given cutting condition based on four factors: force on the cutter, spindle power, maximum chip thickness, and maximum allowable feed rate. It calculates ideal feed rates by analysing tool geometry and parameters, material properties of the stock and cutting tool, detailed cutting edge geometry, and VERICUT cut-by-cut contact conditions. Force excels in difficult to machine materials, and especially complex multi-axis cuts.

CGTech Managing Director, Tony Shrewsbury, comments, “Force is based on the basics, it is easy to set up and really easy to use. After materials have been characterised they can also be applied to a broad range of cutters and machines in other NC machining operation.”
