Software provider CG Tech announced the latest release of Vericut, Version 9.3. The software features several improvements and operates independently, but also integrates with all leading CAM systems.
The latest version of Vericut focuses on creating smarter, more efficient manufacturing processes with features that bring in data around the machine, the tools, and the stock to improve simulation and the overall manufacturing workflow. Improvements have been made to strengthen Vericut’s core, including improved collision checking, increasing the limit on axes per subsystem, and cutting tool data in the Tool Performance. Hundreds of customer-driven changes and improvements have also been addressed in this latest release, the CG Tech announced.
“Vericut 9.3 provides smarter data for smarter manufacturing, giving our customers a ‘cutting edge,’” says Gavin Powell, Managing Director, CG Tech. “With enriched machining metrics, Force feedrate and tool deflection optimisation, this latest release creates the most highly optimised, yet safe to run NC programs for any CNC machine.”
The software’s integrated optimisation module, Vericut Force, has also received additional features and enhancements in 9.3. Alongside improvements to core features and functionality, deflection calculations have changed to account for the entire rotating tool assembly, where previous versions only accounted for solid round tools with holders. This change in deflection along with cutting tool data and information about stock material, improves part surface finish, ensures the part meets the appropriate dimensions, and extends cutter life.
“We’ve seen up to 40 percent more tool life and 30-40 percent savings in machining cycle time when using Vericut Force,” says Jason Mills, Engineering Manager at Advanced Manufacturing (AML). “The module is invaluable for our production work as it provides us with a competitive edge. It’s quite easy to understand. We simply pick the material from the database and input the cutter geometry, which we get from the tooling manufacturer. Force then does its calculations in the background.”
