Software Heralds Improved Workflow Efficiency

Developed and supported globally by CGTech, VERICUT is the world’s leading independent CNC simulation and optimisation software.

CGTech is increasingly challenged to simulate more complex processes and machines, while supporting ‘right first time’ production goals. The latest release of the software, Version 8, ties complex processes together with the ability to monitor and evaluate many potential problems in an efficient and consolidated way, thereby reducing the time spent in the programming and machining cycle.

Central Intelligence Benefits From HASCO

OPEN MIND becomes Tier 1 member at the AMRC

OPEN MIND Technologies has now been awarded Tier 1 membership status at the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC). The globally renowned research facility has invited OPEN MIND to enhance its membership status following a number of successful collaborative projects that have been undertaken during OPEN MIND’s four year tenure as an AMRC Tier 2 member.

Interactive Training Brings The Shop Floor To The Classroom

Engineering apprentice numbers at one college in the north of England surge from 12 to more than 400 in six years

Training students to become CNC machinists has never been easier, according to Kris Richens, programme leader for engineering apprenticeships at Burnley College and one of its senior lecturers. His comment follows the acquisition last year (2015) of a Heidenhain Interactive Training (HIT) system comprising workbooks, server software and a network of 20 workstations for students. The material covers DIN/ISO programming, while a separate module teaches Heidenhain’s widely used conversational data input.
