Okuma, a world leader in CNC machine tools, is pleased to announce that CGTech, a leading developer of CNC software specialising in simulations, verification, optimisation and analysis technology for the manufacturing industry has joined Partners in THINC.
Members of Partners in THINC provide technologies that are integrated with Okuma’s CNC machines and controls to deliver advanced manufacturing system solutions.
Since 1988, CGTech’s product, Vericut® software, has been the industry standard for simulating CNC machining in order to detect errors, potential collisions, or areas of inefficiency. Vericut enables users to eliminate the process of manually proving-out NC programmes. The programme also optimises NC programmes to both save time and produce higher quality surface finish. Vericut simulates all types of CNC machine tools and runs standalone, but can also be integrated with most leading CAM systems.
“CGTech is excited to be a member of Partners in THINC so that we may help end-users improve their manufacturing efficiency. By partnering with Okuma and Partners in THINC, CGTech can provide users with accurate machine simulations of Okuma machine tools to ensure that their tool paths are right the first time, every time,” said Jon Prun, President, CGTech.
“Okuma America is very pleased that CGTech has joined Partners in THINC. Vericut will provide that next level of CNC programme and toolpath verification prior to cutting the part. The use of Vericut, along with a highly capable CAM package, allows Okuma’s customers to fully apply the capabilities and efficiencies of 5-axis machining,” said Jeff Estes, Director of Partners in THINC.
