1 min read

CGTech, the developer of VERICUT software, and Korean CNC machine tool maker Doosan Infracore Co have announced a partnership to better serve the mutual customer base of the two companies.

VERICUT simulates CNC machining to identify errors in the tool path program (such as collisions, over-travel, gouges, etc.). Using VERICUT, manufacturers can verify the accuracy of the program before it is loaded on the machine, reducing or eliminating the need for the time-consuming manual prove-out process and minimizing material costs. VERICUT also improves machining efficiency by optimizing cutting speeds. "We are excited about this partnership," said CGTech product marketing manager, Bill Hasenjaeger. "Manufacturers who buy Doosan machines have invested in sophisticated machinery. Our aim is to offer a software solution designed to help purchasers of this machinery get up and running quickly, while protecting their investment in the long term." Doosan Infracore Co began making machine tools in 1976 and has expanded its business to include turning centres, machining centres, CNC boring machines, electric discharge machines, aspheric turning centres, and automation systems. Jeongkeun Lee, executive director of Doosan Machine Tools Development Center said: "We think it is important to provide a total solution to our customers and we believe that our partnership with CGTech helps us realise this goal." Note: Doosan machines are available from Mills CNC in the UK
