Using multiple software systems to manage cutting tool data and toolholder assembly models is both time-consuming and error-prone. That’s why Irvine, California-based software developer CGTech is pleased to announce that it now offers a connection with Siemens’ Teamcenter® software as part of its industry-leading toolpath simulation software, VERICUT.
Current and future CGTech customers can enjoy seamless integration with the same technology that companies around the world depend on every day to enhance product development decision making and produce better products.
Siemens PLM Software is a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services. Its Teamcenter portfolio, the world’s most popular digital lifecycle management software, is used widely across the aerospace, automotive, medical, and other industries. Its NX™ software is a leading integrated solution for computer-aided design, manufacturing, and engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE).
The Teamcenter integration works seamlessly with MRL, explains Voegele. Users won’t be tempted to model tool holder assemblies that are ‘close enough’ in an effort to save time, or be concerned about different models floating around outside the PLM system—versions are in control, and there is a commonality and standardization for all of a shop’s cutting tools.
Also, VERICUT customers migrating their CAM systems to NX and Teamcenter can use their existing models, importing them directly into Teamcenter, or download them from such sources as Tools United, Machining Cloud or the tool vendor’s website, thus creating a master library within the PLM system and one version of the truth.
