CGTech: VERICUT 9.0 at Advanced Engineering

  • Tuesday, 17th September 2019
  • Reading time: about 2 minutes

CGTech are to demonstrate the new features in version 9.0 of VERICUT CNC machine simulation and optimisation software, at Advanced Engineering.

VERICUT software is the industry standard for simulating CNC machining in order to detect errors, potential collisions, or areas of inefficiency. It operates independently, but can also be integrated with leading CAM systems.

VERICUT 9.0 features several enhancements designed to increase power and improve efficiency:

  • Save time with instant access to viewing the workpiece, CNC machine, or both
  • Use major functions (like Section, X-Caliper and AUTO-DIFF) in any view
  • Easily switch between workpiece and machine views, layouts and docking arrangements
  • Auto-configure VERICUT for optimisation with improved connectivity to tooling websites and cloud repositories

“VERICUT 9.0’s all new graphics display sets the bar for realism and streamlines user actions in all views,” says Gavin Powell, CGTech Technical Director. “In version 9.0, there’s more flexibility to display/hide machine and other components, enhanced Section and better translucency. Most users will experience gains in performance – especially in VERICUT’s free Reviewer app.”

CGTech will also demonstrate VERICUT’s Force optimisation module at Advanced Engineering. VERICUT + Force provides an integrated simulation-optimisation solution that can significantly reduce machining times, and improve cutting tool and machine life. All NC programs, new or old, can be optimised with Force to run as efficiently and safely as possible. Force is available for milling, turning, and mill-turn machines.

Alongside the standard VERICUT CNC simulation and optimisation solutions, CGTech will demonstrate the latest versions of VERICUT Composites Programming (VCP) & Simulation (VCS) Software.  VCP now puts more power into the user’s hands and with more information available than ever before, part programmers can generate and export part statistics directly from VCP. The addition of the all-new summary reports allows engineers to compare different layup strategies, and feel confident the optimal design prevails. Powell adds, “Companies now more than ever are realising the importance of simulation and the digital twin model. With VCS users can watch their parts come to life on their machine, leaving them confident that the intended design will match what is manufactured.”
