To make it easier for companies to gain productivity by using PowerMILL CAM alongside the Vericut simulation program, Delcam (Birmingham, UK) introduced a direct link from its PowerMILL CAM system to CGTech‘s (Irvine, CA) Vericut software for machine tool simulation and feed rate optimization.
Because its simulations are based on the G-code output by PowerMILL, one advantage is it offers an extra degree of confidence to users, adding security by removing possible errors. Secondly, Vericut offers a range of machine tools models, most of which have been developed in association with the machine tool manufacturers.
In addition to ensuring that the simulations are accurate, having such a comprehensive set of models saves users the time that would otherwise be needed to create the designs themselves.
