Showcasing its expanded range of software applications for the aerospace industry is CGTech. The company will be on stand 860C at this year's Dubai Airshow, DWC, Dubai Airshow Site, 12th-16th November 2017.
VERICUT machine tool simulation applications
CGTech’s VERICUT is widely used in aerospace and defence to improve the efficiency of all types of CNC Machine Tools. VERICUT is CNC machine simulation, verification and optimisation software that enables users to eliminate the process of manually proving-out NC programmes.
VERICUT simulates all types of CNC machining, including multi axis milling, drilling and trimming of composite parts, water jet cutting, robotic machining and mill/turn Centres.
VERICUT runs standalone, but can also be integrated with leading CAM systems used in aerospace including Dassault Systemes CATIA, Siemens PLM NX, Autodesk PowerMill and Open Mind HyperMill.
Aerospace applications featuring the CNC machine tool suppliers including DMG MORI, MAZAK, Starrag, GROB, CMS and Hermle will be featured.
VERICUT composites applications
Throughout the show, CGTech will be demonstrating VERICUT Composite Applications: VERICUT Composite Programming (VCP) and VERICUT Composite Simulation (VCS).
CGTech will feature projects that highlight the use of off-line NC programming and simulation software for Automated Fibre Placement (AFP) machines and Automated Tape Laying (ATL) machines including robot cells. VERICUT Composites Applications are machine independent and machines from composites machinery suppliers, including Electroimpact and mTorres, will be featured.
VERICUT drilling and fastening applications
VERICUT Drilling and Fastening (VDAF) is software 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 VDAF interfaces to leading CAD/CAM/PLM systems such as Dassault Systemes CATIA and Siemens NX, and is independent of the assembly machine manufacturer.
