CGTech Celebrates 30 Years by Enhancing Core Capabilities
CGTech, known for its Vericut software that tests NC machine tool paths in an offline virtual reality environment with program verification that simulates material removal using a three-dimensional solid model, is celebrating 30 years in business.
CGTech, the developer of Vericut software, is celebrating three decades of innovation and consistent growth. Headquartered in Irvine, California, with 10 wholly-owned subsidiaries to support customers worldwide, the company is releasing CNC simulation and optimization technologies faster than ever before.
“CGTech may have started 30 years ago, but we continue coming out with new products while enhancing our core capabilities,” says 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 Mr. Prun recognized a need to verify NC tool path programs without wasting valuable CNC machining time on a prove-out part. Vericut software is a method to test NC machine tool paths in an offline virtual reality environment with program verification that simulates material removal using a three-dimensional solid model.
Vericut products are developed in-house by CGTech software engineers with 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.
