VERICUT Composite Applications from CGTech (Irvine, California), programming and simulation software for automated composite fabrication machinery, is the winner of the Enterprise Software category for 2016 at the OC Tech Alliance 23rd Annual High-Tech Innovation Awards dinner on Oct. 6 in Orange County, California.
CGTech developed the first machine-independent programming and simulation system for automated fiber placement (AFP) and automated tape laying (ATL) machinery. Many structural composite parts on military and commercial aircraft are created using CGTech’s software.
“All of the finalists were deserving and our judges felt CGTech stood out in a highly competitive category,” said Peter Craig, CEO, OC Tech Alliance. “We congratulate CGTech for winning the 2016 award and I’d like to acknowledge all of the finalists for their nominations.”
“We are humbled to receive this award and be recognized by the OC Tech Alliance,” said Jon Prun, president and founder of CGTech. “There are so many great tech companies in Orange County that it was an honor to be nominated, much less win.”
In 1988 CGTech was founded in Irvine, California, where the corporate headquarters remains today. The company now has offices in 11 countries for local sales and support, but all product development continues at the company’s corporate headquarters.
