CGTech (Irvine, CA, US) will present a software developer’s perspective on implementing programming and simulation software for automated layup equipment. CGTech will demonstrate VERICUT Composite Applications: VERICUT Composite Paths for Engineering (VCPe), VERICUT Composite Programming (VCP) & VERICUT Composite Simulatoon (VCS). Visitors to CGTech’s booth will also have the opportunity to receive an overview of the steps needed to get from a CAD-designed composite part to CNC programs that drive an automated fiber placement (AFP) or automated tape laying (ATL) machine. There will be informatoon on new projects that highlight the implementation and use of machine-independent offline NC programming software for AFP and ATL machines, such as the work being done at NASA's Langley Research Center using a 16-tow Electroimpact AFP machine. CGTech will also exhibit its latest version of VERICUT software for machine simulation, verification and optimization software that enables users to eliminate the process of manually proving out NC programs. VERICUT simulates drilling and trimming of composite parts, waterjet, riveting, robotics, mill/turn and parallel kinematics.
