SolidCAM launched its VERICUT CNC program verification software at the recent EMO show in Hannover.
The interface will particularly benefit companies in the aerospace sector that need the power of the software’s 5-axis and mill-turn technology to cut critical components, the company says.
The new VERICUT implementation is designed to provide an extension to SolidCAM’s existing internal toolpath verification, by proving out the actual G-codes, used to drive the CNC machine.
The tools, fixtures and stock material created in SolidCAM are reportedly seamlessly transferred into VERICUT, which is automatically set-up in the correct orientation and coordinate system to allow simulation to start immediately.
The verification even tests canned cycles and subprograms generated by SolidCAM for a specific machine tool.
Both the kinematics and CNC control of each machine tool are accurately modeled and defined inside VERICUT, ensuring the checks mirror the exact behavior of the CNC machine, eliminating the need for on machine CNC program try outs, says the company.
