Developer of leading industrial toolpath simulation software Vericut, CG Tech, has announced the expansion of its partnership with Siemens PLM Software to deliver seamless Teamcenter integration.

This agreement now offers a connection with Siemens’ Teamcenter software as part of CG Tech's Vericut, and will further improve the functionality of Vericut for customers using Siemens’ NX and Teamcenter.

Siemens PLM Software is a provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, among them Teamcenter and NX as the company's trademarks.

Using multiple software systems to manage cutting tool data and toolholder assembly models is both time-consuming and error-prone.

Current and future CGTech customers can enjoy seamless integration with the technology to enhance product development decision making and produce better products.

NX users can click, connect and import files directly from NX, saving time and eliminating problems. “Often, the most labour-intensive part of toolpath verification is modelling the various cutting tools and assemblies,” says CG Tech MD Tony Shrewsbury. “This is especially true with the large, complex machining work common with NX users, where 30 to 40 tools in a single job is not unusual.” He adds that connecting directly to Teamcenter will provide the easy search for individual tools within the PLM system or NX project files, which in turn is read into Vericut – a huge timesaver.

The integrated solution will provide added value to customers of both CG Tech and Siemens PLM Software.

The Teamcenter integration is said to work well with MRL. Also, Vericut customers migrating their CAM systems to NX and Teamcenter can use their existing models, importing them directly into Teamcenter or download them from such sources as Tools United, Machining Cloud or the tool vendor’s website, thus creating a master library within the PLM system.

Head of Production and Quality Products at Siemens PLM Software Corsin Buerer says: “This agreement is another important step in the development of an integrated solution that will provide added value to our mutual customers.”

“The Teamcenter and MRL connection was developed in response to numerous requests from shops wishing to streamline and secure the tool management process within a robust PLM system,” Shrewbury notes and adds: “We’ve accomplished that goal and further enhanced both of our products.”
