CGTech to exhibit at Siemens PLM Europe (VERICUT)

Advanced software supports manufacturing innovations

September 11, 2012 - CGTech will be exhibiting at Siemens PLM Europe in Linz, Austria, October 22-24 2012. The stand will feature the latest versions of CGTech’s VERICUT software products for both Machine Tool Simulation and Automated Fibre Placement (AFP) programming and simulation. In addition CGTech will showcase its new product for programming and simulation of Automated Drilling and Fastening machines used for airframe assembly. 

VERICUT COMPOSITES APPLICATIONS

CGTech will be demonstrating VERICUT Composite Applications: VERICUT composite Programming (VCP) and VERICUT Composite Simulation (VCS).

There will be demonstrations of projects that highlight the implementation and use of machine independent off-line NC programming software for AFP machines. Current customer projects to be highlighted include: a large one-piece fuselage barrel on an Electroimpact multi-machine AFP fabrication cell;  a U-channel structure onon  a 7-axis mTorres AFP machine; and aircraft skin panels and other parts using an AFP head mounted on 6-axis robots from KIKA, FANUC and ABB.

A new product VERICUT Paths for Engineers (VCPe) will also be show. VCPe provides all the programming features of VCP but not linked to a specific AFP machine. Engineers can use VCPe to experiment with AFP layup strategies and production methods in a virtual environment. CGTech Composites applications are integrated with Siemens Vistagy FibreSIM Composites design products. 

VERICUT MACHINE TOOL SIMULATION

CGTech will also be showing the recently released version 7.2 of it's market leading VERICUT CNC machine simulation and optimization software. VERICUT simulates all types of CNC machining, including aerospace processes such as multi axis milling, drilling and trimming of composite parts, water jet cutting, robotic and mill/turn machining. VERICUT is used to simulate CNC machine Tools from all leading brands including Makino, Starrag Heckert, Heller, Matsuura, Mori Seiki-DMG and Yamazaki Mazak.

VERICUT 7.2 has a host of improvements over previous versions including significantly improved performance resulting from 64 Bit processors and multi-threading. VERICUT can run stand-alone but can also be integgrated with Siemens NX CAM products through an enhanced interface.

 

VERICUT DRILLING AND FASTENING PROGRAMMING AND SIMULATION

VERICUT Drilling and Fastening is a new software application for simulating and programming auto-drilling and fastening machines.  These machines are used to assemble large aero-structures and it is essential to avoid programming errors and collisions at such a late stage in the aircraft manufacturing process. VERICUT allows the user to programme drilling and fastener assembly operations in a virtual machine tool environment and provides simulation to check for a variety of potentially disastrous error conditions. Like all VERICUT software the new module interfaces to leading CAD/CAM/PLM systems such as Siemens NX, and is independent of the assembly machine manufacturer.
