CGTech to showcase VERICUT Programming and Simulation at Farnborough International 2014

Hove, England - May 1, 2014 -- CGTech will be exhibiting at Farnborough International 2014 on stand D10 in Hall 1 on July 14th – 18th 2014. The stand will feature the latest version 7.3 of CGTech’s VERICUT Machine Tool Simulation, Verification and Feed Rate Optimisation software. CGTech will also feature it’s Composites Applications software for programming and simulation of Automated Fibre Placement (AFP) and Automated Tape Laying (ATL).

VERICUT MACHINE TOOL SIMULATION
CGTech will be showing version 7.3 of the market leading VERICUT CNC machine simulation and optimisation software. VERICUT simulates all types of CNC machining, including aerospace processes such as multi axis milling, drilling and trimming of composite parts, water jet cutting, robotic and mill/turn machining. VERICUT is used to simulate CNC machine Tools from all leading brands including Makino, Starrag, Heller, Matsuura, DMG MORI and Mazak.

VERICUT runs standalone, but can also be integrated with leading CAD/CAM/PLM  systems including Dassault Systemes CATIA, Siemens NX, Delcam PowerMill and Open Mind Hypermill.

VERICUT COMPOSITES APPLICATIONS

CGTech will be demonstrating VERICUT Composite Applications: VERICUT composite Programming (VCP) and VERICUT Composite Simulation (VCS).

There will be demonstrations of projects that highlight the implementation and use of machine independent off-line CNC programming and simulation software for AFP and ATL machines. Projects to be highlighted include: a large one-piece fuselage barrel on an Electroimpact multi-machine AFP fabrication cell;  a U-channel structure on a 7-axis mTorres AFP machine; and several examples using AFP heads mounted on 6-axis robots from KUKA, FANUC and others.

VERICUT DRILLING AND FASTENING PROGRAMMING AND SIMULATION

VERICUT Drilling and Fastening is a new software application for simulating and programming auto-drilling and fastening machines.  These machines are used to assemble large aero-structures and it is essential to avoid programming errors and collisions at such a late stage in the aircraft manufacturing process. VERICUT allows the user to programme drilling and fastener assembly operations in a virtual machine tool environment and provides simulation to check for a variety of potentially disastrous error conditions. Like all VERICUT software the new module interfaces to leading CAD/CAM/PLM systems and is independent of the assembly machine manufacturer.

About CGTech
Headquartered in Irvine, California, CGTech specialises in numerical control (NC/CNC) simulation, verification, optimisation and analysis software technology. Since 1988 CGTech’s product, VERICUT® software, has become the industry standard for simulating CNC machining. With offices worldwide, including UK, France, Germany and Italy, VERICUT software is used by Aerospace Manufacturing and supply chain companies throughout the world.
