CGTech (Irvine, Calif.) announced its twentieth year as a developer of NC program simulation and analysis software. Flourishing through an era when software companies came and went, CGTech has achieved two decades of innovation and steady growth.
"CGTech has a proven track record of success in advanced machine simulation technology which Remmele Engineering Inc. relies on for efficient and accurate machining results,"said Mark Conley, CAM/EDI Center Manager, Remmele Engineering. "Their support of our technical needs for complex machining has been outstanding.â€
CGTech began when Jon Prun, the company's founder and president, recognized a need to verify NC tool path programs without wasting valuable CNC machining time on a prove-out part. As a result, Prun developed trademarked VERICUT software: the world's first widely available, productive method to test numerical control (NC) machine tool paths, without using a machine tool. VERICUT revolutionized NC program verification with an extremely fast algorithm designed to run on desktop computers that simulates material removal using a three-dimensional solid model.
Since its initial release, VERICUT has been enhanced to optimize feed rates and simulate the kinematics of complex multi-axis and multi-spindle CNC machine tools. CGTech's continual updating and enhancement of VERICUT reflects the company's ongoing commitment to delivering innovative, powerful, and robust solutions for manufacturers. As part of this commitment, VERICUT is 100 percent developed in-house by CGTech software engineers who have many years of experience in the mechanical CAD/CAM industry.
"We wouldn't be in position to celebrate our 20th without the loyal support of all those who use VERICUT,"said Prun. "VERICUT development has always been driven by our customers' needs, and we always welcome feedback from users.â€
CGTech has seen notable growth during the past two decades, and its customer list includes thousands of companies in virtually every manufacturing industry, including every major aerospace and automotive company. Wholly-owned subsidiary companies have been founded in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and China to directly support customers worldwide.
