At the 2019 JEC Composites show, March 12-14, 2019 at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre, CGTech will demonstrate how advanced programming strategies and simulation can lead to better composite parts. Throughout the show in Hall 5-Stand Q49, CGTech will also demonstrate Composites V8.1.2, the latest version of VERICUT Composite Programming (VCP) & VERICUT Composite Simulation (VCS).
CGTech’s Composites V8.1.2 release of VCP and VCS features a completely redefined Graphical User Interface (GUI), enhanced suite of programming and analysis tools, and redefined methodology through the use of the powerful new Laminate Manager. The Laminate Manager helps users easily manage files, processes, and batch actions for the entire composite laminate. Internal refinements ensure that large projects are now able to be programmed and simulated in a fraction of the previous time.
The aerospace industry continues to push for lighter, faster, and more cost-effective parts. To support these goals, VCP now puts more power into user’s hands. With more information available than ever before, part programmers can generate and export part statistics directly from VCP. The addition of the all-new summary reports allows engineers to compare different layup strategies, and feel confident the optimal design prevails. “However, one should not stop at the programming stage,” said Tony Shrewsbury, CGTech Ltd. Managing Director. “Companies now more than ever are realising the importance of simulation and the digital twin model. With VCS users can watch their parts come to life on their machine, leaving them confident that the intended design will match what is manufactured.”
CGTech will also exhibit its latest version of VERICUT software. VERICUT 8.2 is an industry leading CNC machine simulation, verification and optimization software that enables users to eliminate the process of manually proving-out NC programs. VERICUT simulates all types of CNC machining, including drilling and trimming of composite parts, water jet, riveting, robotics, mill/turn and parallel kinematics. VERICUT runs standalone, but can also be integrated with leading CAM systems.
