Delcam has introduced a direct link from its PowerMILL CAM system to CGTech’s Vericut software for machine tool simulation and feed rate optimisation.
Delcam said this link will make it easier for companies to gain productivity by using the world’s leading specialist CAM software alongside the world’s leading simulation program.
“The status of Vericut is so well established that many companies manufacturing high-value items from expensive materials insist on using its simulations as part of their product development procedures,” Mark Forth, Delcam’s PowerMILL product marketing manager, said.
Vericut’s simulations are based on the g-code output by PowerMILL.
“Vericut gives an independent verification of the toolpaths generated by PowerMILL. This provides an added level of security just in case there have been any operator errors in generating or in post-processing the toolpaths,” Forth said.
