At MACH 2016 the latest version of VERICUT, V7.4, CNC machine simulation, verification and optimisation software will be featured on CGTech’s stand 4021, Hall 4. VERICUT simulates the CNC machining process for large, small, simple or complex parts and all types of CNC machining, including drilling and trimming of composite parts, water jet, robots and mill/turn. It operates stand alone, but can also be integrated with all leading CAM systems.
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.
7.4 Enhancements for Ease-of-use
VERICUT’s desktop is enhanced with a new docking method enabling VERICUT’s desktop to be configured in the most efficient manner. Additionally, the Status window is completely redesigned for better viewing, customisation and size. The popular “Favourites” feature has been enhanced to automatically read all sub-folders in a directory. There is also a new Welcome screen allowing access to popular features, samples and help.
Tool Management Simplified
A new Tool Bar provides easy access to all features needed to create and maintain tool libraries, create/modify tool assemblies, import tool assemblies and create or import OptiPath records. Also, in the Tool List, tool components now have a Parent/Child hierarchy allowing for better tool assembly management and modification. All Tool Definition windows have been re-designed to make tool definition easier. VERICUT 7.4 ships with a library of common tools and also features seamless connectivity with Kennametal’s NOVO™, Iscar’s IQCloud™, and other tooling suppliers via the Machining Cloud™, making it very quick and simple to add new tools to a simulation session.
Machine movements can also be simulated while stepping or playing backwards in VERlCUT‘s Review Mode. With VERICUT Reviewer shopfloor personnel, suppliers, customers, and other production engineers can view animations of the CNC machining process. It is a stand-alone viewer that does not use a license that can play forward and backward while removing and replacing material. At MACH 2016 CGTech will have an exclusive VERICUT Reviewer demo bar, featuring the Reviewer PC version on both laptops and Windows tablets, plus demonstrations of the Ipad Reviewer app. Visitors to the stand can take advantage of live demos as well as the opportunity to get a hands on trial of Reviewer for themselves.
