has unveiled Vericut version 9.2 of its CNC machine simulation, verification, and optimisation software which simulates all types of CNC machining, additive, and hybrid manufacturing processes. The software operates independently, but can also be integrated with leading CAM systems.
Vericut 9.2 increases productivity and sustainability with several new features that boost manufacturing efficiency, help preserve machines and cutting tools, increase machine capacity and dramatically reduce repair and scrap costs.
Substantial speed increases to collision checking and overall performance, a New 3DLive interface, improved cutting tool support, and reporting enhancements are just a few of the notable features in this latest release. Hundreds of customer-driven improvements and software requests were also incorporated in this latest version.
Gene Granata, Vericut product manager, said: “Vericut has been designed to meet the needs of all types of shops — from small job shops to OEMs and Tier One suppliers that are regularly pushing the limits of CNC technology.
“The enhancements in version 9.2 provide the speed that shops of all sizes need to produce more efficient programs faster and get their products to market more quickly and competitively, while promoting conservation of valuable material and human resources.”Drastically reduces machining times
CGTech’s integrated simulation-optimisation solution, Vericut Force, also benefits from these latest enhancements. Force drastically reduces machining times, doubles tool or more, prevents undesirable cutting conditions and improves part quality.
Vericut 9.2 provides Force optimisation software users with more options for setting and adjusting optimisation limits, more comprehensive tooling data and greater customisation options for Graphs and Reports.
Joshua Koch, business development manager at Oregon Manufacturing Innovation Center (OMIC), said: “Vericut Force is one of the most exciting new tools for predicative processes control I have used. I have been in the industry for over a decade and programming for half of that, and it is clear to see how the Force workbench is leading the way in predicative and optimisation systems for manufacturing.
“The system changes the fundamental approach to NC program creation, reducing failure potentials while optimising toolpath. I am excited to show manufacturers the opportunities for improvement and the potential savings that Force can uncover in their NC programs.”
