CGTech unveils latest Vericut CNC simulation software

The latest release of Vericut, the CNC simulation software, will be showcased by CGTech VERICUT. The software is used by over 7,000 companies in 60 countries to simulate machining and to correct errors in NC programs before starting the real machines.

This latest version, Vericut 9.4, focuses on increased connectivity between the actual machine and the virtual simulation. A new CNC machine monitoring module connects the software directly to CNC machines and streams data to allow users to monitor what their machines are doing on the shop floor in real time. Users can see which NC program or sub-routine is running, monitor machine motions and spindle activity, see if over-rides have been applied to spindle or feed rates, identify when machining has been interrupted by emergency stops or taken out of productive cycle mode, for example,

Another new standalone application is CNC Precheck. This allows machinists to ensure that key aspects of the machine setup match what was verified in Vericut. This final precheck before machining enables differences to be identified such as NC programs that are the wrong version or contain edits, missing and/or different work or tool offsets, so these can be investigated and resolved before running the machine.

Other enhancements include improvements to the free Reviewer app, which allows everyone in the company, including machinists, engineers and quality assurance, to check NC programs before they run, without tying up a license.

Enhancements to optimisation give all users an opportunity to quickly optimise NC programs, without having to search for starting values when it comes to materials and cutting tool parameters. Users can also import cutting data with cutting tool assemblies, such as those from tool vendor sites and repositories, e.g., MachiningCloud, TDM and Zoller.

Finally, Vericut 9.4 offers improved support of multi-ToolStations (MTS), a new ToolsUnited interface, with access to tool and cutting data from over 40 tool manufacturers, and improved tool data, with an extension to include HSS and ceramic milling cutters as well as knurled milling cutters.
