The latest update from CGTech covers all types of CNC simulation and more.Click image to enlargeCGTech has released version 9.2 of its Vericut CNC machine simulation, verification, and optimization software.

It simulates all types of CNC machining, additive, and hybrid manufacturing processes. The software operates independently but can be integrated with all leading CAM systems.

Vericut 9.2 increases productivity and sustainability with several new features that boost manufacturing efficiency, help preserve machines and cutting tools, increase machine capacity and dramatically reduce repair & scrap costs. Substantial speed increases to collision checking and overall performance, a New 3DLive interface, improved cutting tool support, and reporting enhancements are just a few of the notable features in this latest release. Hundreds of customer-driven improvements and software requests were also incorporated in this latest version.

CGTech’s integrated simulation-optimization solution, Vericut Force, also benefits from these latest enhancements. Force drastically reduces machining times extends tool life up to 2x or more, prevents undesirable cutting conditions and improves part quality. The update provides Force optimization users with more options for setting and adjusting optimization limits, more comprehensive tooling data and greater customization options for graphs and reports.

Vericut 9.2 Highlights:

  • Collision and Performance Improvements
  • More Options for Optimizing
  • Force Turning Improvements
  • New Assembly Manager
  • New 3DLive Interface
  • Enhanced Support for Cutting Tools – New Tool Types
  • Enhanced Support for Cutting Tools – Hole Making Tools
  • Enhancements for Tool Reporting
  • Report Enhancements

Nd:YAG or fiber laser for micro welding?

Choosing the best option for your application

By Geoff Shannon, Amada Miyachi America

Four lasers can be used for micro welding: pulsed neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG), continuous wave (CW) fiber, quasi continuous wave (QCW) fiber, and nanosecond fiber. Each laser type offers unique features that work best for specific applications. Here is a comparison of the pulsed Nd:YAG laser with the three fiber laser options, and a discussion of why and when one might be chosen over the other. In some cases, several options may work; in that case, cost of ownership and serviceability can tip the scales.
