CGTech (Irvine, CA, US) will demonstrate how critical simulation is when trimming composite parts. CGTech will also demonstrate VERICUT Composite Applications: VERICUT Composite Paths for Engineering (VCPe), VERICUT Composite Programming (VCP) & VERICUT Composite Simulation (VCS). CGTech will exhibit its latest version of VERICUT software. VERICUT is 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.

Visitors to CGTech’s stand will also have the opportunity to receive a thorough overview of the steps needed to get from a CAD-designed composite part to CNC programs that drive an futomated fiber placement (AFP) or automated tape laying (ATL) machine. There will be information on new projects that highlight the implementation and use of machine-independent, off-line 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. Current customer projects to be highlighted include extensive use of robots, lasers, probing and ultrasonic knives.
