CGTech, the developer of Vericut software, is celebrating its 30th Anniversary. Headquartered in Irvine, CA, with 10 wholly-owned subsidiaries to support customers worldwide, the company is releasing new CNC simulation and optimization technologies.
“CGTech may have started 30 years ago, but we continue coming out with new products while enhancing our core capabilities,” said CGTech’s president Jon Prun. “Vericut development is driven by our customers’ needs, and we always encourage input from users and partners. We host nearly 50 free Vericut user group meetings worldwide each year to gather valuable customer feedback.”
CGTech began when Prun recognized a need to verify NC tool path programs without wasting valuable CNC machining time on a prove-out part. Vericut software was the first widely available, productive method to test NC machine tool paths in an offline virtual reality environment. Vericut improved NC program verification by simulating material removal using a three-dimensional solid model.
Vericut products are developed in-house by a large team of CGTech software engineers who have many years of experience in the mechanical CAD/CAM industry. Over the years enhancements have been added to support complex multi-axis kinematics, reduce machine tool cycle times, increase tool life, and simulate the additive capabilities of hybrid CNC machines. CGTech also develops several software products for companies utilizing automated composite machinery, along with drilling and fastening machines used for airframe assembly.
CGTech direct offices are in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, China, Singapore, India, Brazil and Korea.
