CGTech has announced the latest release of Vericut, version 9.4.
Vericut is an independent, standalone software solution for machine simulation, verification, and optimization for all types of CNC machine processes, including metal cutting, additive and hybrid manufacturing, composites and more.
It supports integration with all leading CAM and tool management systems.
In addition to improvements within the core product, Vericut 9.4 focuses on increased connectivity across the manufacturing workflow, enabling organizations to do more with the resources they already have.
“The release of 9.4 focuses on improving what makes Vericut a powerful tool while enabling customers to connect both new and existing technologies across their manufacturing ecosystem,” says Gene Granata, Director of Product Management. “The improvements and new capabilities within Vericut enable teams involved across manufacturing to work more efficiently and intelligently, while simultaneously enabling higher competency levels for machinists and NC programmers.”
Vericut 9.4 introduces a new module, CNC Machine Monitoring, which connects Vericut directly to CNC machines and streams data to allow users to monitor what their machines are doing on the shop floor, live in real time. Users can see which NC program or subroutine is running, monitor machine motions and spindle activity, see if overrides have been applied to spindle or feedrates, identify when machining has been interrupted by emergency stops or taken out of productive cycle mode, and much more, all within Vericut.
CNC Precheck is a new standalone application that 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.
