MEX 2017 A NC program for optimal feedrates
CG Tech is showcasing the latest version of its Vericut CNC machine simulation, verification and optimisation software. The updated Force "physics-based" toolpath optimisation module receives input values directly from cloud-based tooling, and benefits from features that streamline optimisation setup, the company says.
By micro analysing the cutting conditions encountered by an NC Program, Force ensures NC programs have optimal feed rates, and ideal chip thicknesses that do not exceed safe force or power limits.
"With a specific focus on improving connectivity and closing the design to manufacturing loop, Version 8.0.2 makes even more use of tooling and cutting performance information available in CAM systems and cloud-based tooling,” said CGTech Ltd Managing Director, Tony Shrewsbury.
