UK — NC programming errors can prove to be costly, if they result in damage to raw and completed material, the cutting tools or workholding system. While everyone involved with CNC machining understands the importance of checking and verifying the machining process before applying a cutting tool to the raw material, you should consider what are you really checking? More importantly what are you missing?
Switzerland — Swiss company Starrag Group, which specializes in precision cutting machine tools, uses Vericut NC simulation software to predict machining times. In addition to verification and optimization of NC programs, it provides a precise indication of the runtime of the optimized machining on the machine.
UK — A collaborative partnership between cutting tool technologies specialist, Seco Tools, and CNC simulation and optimisation software provider, CG Tech, is aiming to improve customer's manufacturing operations.
