CGTech to Showcase VERICUT Applications at AeroDef

Irvine, CA - At the 2016 AeroDef Manufacturing Conference & Exposition with Composites Manufacturing, CGTech will be demonstrating how critical simulation is when working with high-value aerospace components, especially those made with composites.

“Because composite workpieces have a significant amount of process time and labor in them prior to machining, they can be more expensive than even some exotic metal alloy workpieces,” said Product Marketing Manager Matt Radebach. “It’s usually not possible to repair a composite workpiece damaged during machining. Thus, validation of the part program is extremely critical.”
 
In booth 123 CGTech will be exhibiting its latest version of VERICUT software. VERICUT is CNC machine simulation, verification and optimization software that enables users to eliminate the process of manually proving-out NC programs. VERICUT simulates all types of CNC machining, including drilling and trimming of composite parts, water jet, riveting, robotics, mill/turn and parallel kinematics. VERICUT runs standalone, but can also be integrated with leading CAM systems.

Visitors to CGTech’s booth will also have the opportunity to receive a thorough overview of the steps needed to get from a CAD designed composite part to CNC programs that drive an Automated Fiber Placement (AFP) or Automated Tape Laying (ATL) machine. There will be information on new projects that highlight the implementation and use of machine independent off-line NC programming software for AFP and ATL machines, such as the work being done at NASA's Langley Research Center using a 16-tow Electroimpact automated fiber placement machine. Current customer projects to be highlighted include extensive use of robots, lasers, probing, and ultrasonic knifes.
