CNC-Machine Simulation

VERICUT software simulates real NC data on digital twin machines so you can be more efficient, more competitive, and more profitable! A machine crash can be very expensive, potentially ruin the machine, and delay your entire manufacturing schedule! But with VERICUT, you can dramatically reduce the chance for error and avoid wasting valuable production time proving-out new programs on the machine. CNC Machine Simulation detects collisions and near-misses between all machine tool components such as axis slides, heads, turrets, rotary tables, spindles, tool changers, fixtures, work pieces, cutting tools, and other user-defined objects. You can set up ‘near-miss zones” around the components to check for close calls, and even detect over-travel errors.

VERICUT enables you to perform realistic 3D simulation of entire CNC machines, just like they behave in the shop, with the most accurate collision-detection available. VERICUT Machine Simulation software supports G-codes and

  • Multi-axis support for milling, drilling, turning, grinding & EDM machines
  • Simultaneous mill/turn on different spindles and workpieces
  • Machines with multiple synchronized CNC controls.
  • Auxiliary attachments: tail stock, steady rests, part catchers, bar pullers, etc.
  • Automatic workpiece transfer to pick-off or sub-spindles

Superior Collision Checking

VERICUT features the most accurate collision checking available. Rather than just checking points along a path, VERICUT checks along the entire path of travel by sweeping through space. You don’t have to specify a “step size” tolerance that can slow the simulation if too small or miss the collision if too large!

With VERICUT CNC Simulation you can:

  • Simulate traditional and multi-axis (4, 5 or more) CNC machines
  • Help to avoid CNC machine collisions and safety distance problems
  • Reduce the time it takes to implement new CNC machines
  • Provided clear instructions for the operator on new NC programs
  • Improve process efficiency
  • Improve operational safety
  • Enhance presentations and documentation
  • Train programmers and operators without using production time or risking collisions

Emulation of CNC control logic and G-code support

VERICUT accurately emulates CNC control logic. Each control in your shop can be accurately simulated to account for different types of machines, programs, parts, and functions. You get the flexibility to customize controls.

Using pull down dialog boxes, G-code characters and numerals are defined in a logical “word/address” format, then configured to call CGTech action macros which simulate control functions.

The control logic also supports conditional checks (other codes in the block, current variable values, machine states, etc.) that can alter how the word/address is interpreted.

VERICUT includes a library of flexible, easily modifiable controls from manufacturers such as:

  • Heidenhain
  • Fanuc
  • Mazatrol
  • Bosch
  • NumeriPath
  • Yasnac
  • General Electric
  • Siemens
  • Fadal
  • Phillips
  • Allen-Bradley
  • Cincinnati Milacron
  • Okuma

VERICUT supports even the most complex applications, such as:

  • Automatic part transfer between fixtures
  • Facing head (or “programmable boring bar”)
  • Mill/turn machining center’s multi-channel programming/synchronization
  • CNC controls which allow programming of the tool axis using IJK tool axis vectors
  • Turning operations which are not symmetric about the lathe spindle

 

  • Parallel kinematics machines such as the Tricept head
  • Multi-axis waterjet cutting operations
  • Material removal for gear hobbing and synchronizes the tool spindle with part spindle
  • Auto-fastener programming and simulation
