CGTech (stand H104) will exhibit VERICUT 9.2 at the Advanced Engineering show. VERICUT is among the industry standards for CNC machine simulation to detect incorrect tool path motions, collisions, bugs and other areas for improvement.
The latest version, VERICUT 9.2, increases productivity and sustainability with improvements to collision checking and overall performance, as well as enhanced support for ‘intelligent’ cutting tools with cutting performance information and detailed tool reporting. Also added is a 3DLive interface to import GDML files, enabling users to quickly and easily create realistic digital machines and add other moving components (rotary tables, articulating heads, fixtures with moving clamps, etc.) for more realistic simulation.
VERICUT 9.2 also provides important advancements in optimisation and monitoring machining processes. VERICUT Force is a physics-based NC program optimisation module that can be used with optimised cutting operations. Force makes changes to the program based on the specific stock material, cutting tool properties, and machining conditions encountered during simulation. Force optimised program feedrates maintain an ideal constant chip thickness as much as possible, while simultaneously limiting excessive cutting forces or spindle power requirements.
The latest version of VERICUT brings more options for optimisation. Force can set a target Chip Thickness and any combination of Force limits, such as maximum force, maximum power, and maximum tool deflection. Users can also choose to “Learn From Graphs” to send optimisation settings to cutting tools, or change optimisation settings for corresponding cutters.
