Machine-independent off-line programming and simulation software for CNC composite fabrication machinery. Provides tools for composite part designers, mechanical engineers, process engineers, NC programmers, and manufacturing engineers.
VERICUT Composite Programming
VERICUT Composite Programming (VCP) reads CAD surfaces and ply boundary information and adds material to fill the plies according to user-specified manufacturing standards and requirements. Layup paths are then linked together to form specific layup sequences and output as NC programs for the automated layup machine.
VERICUT Composite Simulation
VERICUT Composite Simulation (VCS) is a simulated work environment for automated composites manufacturing. Through CAD models and NC programs, VCS simulates the sequence of NC programs on a virtual machine, including head changes, probing, knife cutting, and more. Material is applied to the layup form via NC program instructions in a virtual CNC simulation environment. The simulated material applied to the form can be measured and inspected for stack thickness, ply offset, ply angle, and other manufacturing priorities to ensure the NC program follows manufacturing standards and requirements. A report showing simulation results and statistical information can be automatically created.
