CGTech to Showcase VERICUT Composites Applications Software at AeroDef

At AeroDef Manufacturing, March 27-28, 2018, CGTech Composite Product Manager Andre Colvin will be giving a presentation that highlights how to build a case for automated composite lay-up. Attendees can attend the presentation on Wednesday, March 28 at 2 PM in Room 102A. Throughout the show, in booth 637, CGTech will also demonstrate Composites 2018, the latest version of VERICUT Composite Programming (VCP) & VERICUT Composite Simulation (VCS).


CGTech’s Composites 2018 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 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. 


CGTech will also exhibit its latest version of VERICUT 8.1 software. VERICUT is a CNC machine simulation, verification and optimization software that enables users to eliminate the process of manually proving-out NC programs. VERICUT simulates all types of CNC machining, including drilling and trimming of composite parts, water jet, riveting, robotics, mill/turn and parallel kinematics. VERICUT runs standalone, but can also be integrated with leading CAM systems.


“Due to the extensive time, energy and labor invested in composite workpieces prior to machining, they can often be more expensive than even some exotic metal alloy parts,” said André Colvin, CGTech’s Composite Product Manager. “Repairing composite workpieces after a machining error is problematic and many times not advisable. Thus, validating the part program prior to trimming is exceedingly critical. Simulation also decreases machine downtime by eliminating the need for wasteful dry runs.”


Visitors to CGTech’s booth will also get information on new projects that highlight the implementation and use of machine independent offline NC programming software for AFP and ATL machines, such as the work being done at NASA's Langley Research Center using a 16-tow Electroimpact automated fiber placement machine. Current customer projects to be highlighted include extensive use of robots, lasers, probing and ultrasonic knifes.
