New Interface Between CGTech and Zoller TMS Solutions
CGTech, the developer of VERICUT CNC verification and simulation software, and ZOLLER, a leading presetting and measuring machine manufacturer and expert in the field of tool management, have announced a new product to better serve the customer base of the two companies.
“Our interface to the ZOLLER TMS Tools Management Solutions provides a direct link between VERICUT and TMS,” said CGTech Product Marketing Manager Bill Hasenjaeger. “A complete set of cutting tools for a job are quickly and easily transferred from the ZOLLER TMS database to VERICUT.”
VERICUT simulates CNC machining to identify errors in the NC programs (such as collisions, over-travel, gouges, etc.). Using VERICUT, manufacturers can verify the accuracy of the program before it is loaded on the machine, thereby reducing or eliminating the need for time-consuming manual prove-outs. VERICUT also improves machining efficiency by optimizing cutting speeds.
“ZOLLER TMS Tool Management Solutions combines cutting tool information provided by cutting tool suppliers as well as actual physical tools that are scanned thru the ZOLLER presetter and measuring machine product line in 3D,” said Zoller Inc. President Alexander Zoller. “The user will benefit from a single source database for programing and simulation.”
ZOLLER, founded in 1945 by Alfred Zoller, is headquartered in Germany with worldwide subsidiaries, amongst others in the USA, China, India, Thailand and Japan. Today, the ZOLLER product portfolio covers all application areas of tool presetting, measuring, inspection and management. With the TMS Tool Management Solutions, ZOLLER presents software that offers savings potential through organizing the management of the manufacturing process on a central data base, which is used by all production units. Its modular design allows users to improve production processes step-by-step.
Headquartered in Irvine, California CGTech specializes in numerical control (NC/CNC) simulation, verification, optimization and analysis software technology for manufacturing.
