CGTech to showcase aerospace applications at FIA

Posted 16 May 2018 · Add Comment

CGTech will showcase its expanded range of software applications for the aerospace industry at the Farnborough International Airshow (FIA), 16th Ė 20th July 2018.



CGTech’s VERICUT is widely used in aerospace and defence to improve the efficiency of all types of CNC machine tools. VERICUT is CNC machine simulation, verification and optimisation software that enables users to eliminate the process of manually proving-out NC programs. VERICUT simulates all types of CNC machining, including multi-axis milling, drilling and trimming of composite parts, water jet cutting, robotic machining and mill/turn, additive and hybrid machining processes.  VERICUT runs standalone, but can also be integrated with all leading CAM systems used in aerospace.

Throughout the show, CGTech will be demonstrating VERICUTs optimisation capabilities, which have recently been enhanced with the introduction of the new Force module.  Force is a physics-based optimisation method that determines the maximum reliable feed rate for a given cutting condition based on four key factors: force on the cutter, spindle power, maximum chip thickness, and maximum allowable feed rate.

It calculates ideal feed rates by analysing tool geometry and parameters, material properties of the stock and cutting tool, detailed cutting tool geometry, and VERICUT cut-by-cut contact conditions. Force interpolates cutting conditions using a proprietary set of materials coefficients to account for the strength of material and the effects of friction and temperature. The materials data is generated by actual machining tests and does not rely on extrapolating from finite element analysis results. The bespoke cutting coefficients used by Force result in the most accurate cutting force calculations available today.

CGTech will also demonstrate Composites 8.1, the latest versions of VERICUT Composite Programming (VCP) & VERICUT Composite Simulation (VCS). CGTech’s Composites 8.1 release of VCP and VCS features a completely redefined Graphical User Interface (GUI), enhanced suite of programming and analysis tools, and redefined methodology through the use of the powerful new Laminate Manager. The Laminate Manager helps users easily manage files, processes, and batch actions for the entire composite laminate. Internal refinements ensure that large projects are now able to be programmed and simulated in a fraction of the previous time.
