EMO Milano 2015 Machine simulation software simplifies user interaction, day-to-day NC programming
UK – At this year's EMO Milano, CGTech will be demonstrating the new version of Vericut CNC machine simulation and optimisation software.
According to the exhibitor, Vericut 7.4 includes many enhancements that further simplify the process of simulating a CNC machine. Changes to how users interact with Vericut further improve Vericut’s workflow and simplify day-to-day NC programming and simulation use.
“This release increases the ability of manufacturing engineers to simulate the entire CNC machining process in order to produce better results and reduce the time spent in the programming and machining cycle,” says CGTech Product Marketing Manager Bill Hasenjaeger. “Vericut is constantly refined to provide the flexibility and tools our customers require.”
Vericut is a CNC machine simulation, verification and optimisation software that enables users to eliminate the process of manually proving out NC programs.
In version 7.4, the desktop is enhanced with a new docking method enabling the user to lay out the Vericut desktop in the most efficient manner for the way that they work, CGTech says. The new docking method is very flexible and provides a high level of customisation possibilities. Additionally, the status window has been completely redesigned for better viewing, customisation and size, the company says. The status window information is divided into information groups, each containing a specific list of information.
Furthermore, a new tool bar consists of a combination of icons and pull-down menus providing easy access to all features needed to create and maintain tool libraries, create or modify tool assemblies.
