Since 1988, Vericut has become the industry standard for simulating CNC machining in order to detect errors, potential collisions, or areas of inefficiency. Vericut enables NC programmers to reduce prove-outs, virtually eliminate errors, and optimize NC programs for faster, more efficient machining.

For over 80 years, Makino has been introducing innovative solutions that boost productivity and profitability. By integrating visionary digital technology with premium performance machines, Makino helps companies fundamentally transform.

Jon Prun, CGTech President, says :

“We are excited about this ongoing partnership. Manufacturers who buy Makino machines have invested in world-leading machinery. Our aim is to offer a software solution designed to help purchasers of Makino machines get up and running quickly, while protecting their investment in the long term.”

Shinichi Inoue, Makino Milling Machine President, says:

“Simulation software is very important for our business and machines. Makino uses Vericut in simulations, and maintains an indispensable cooperative relationship with CGTech to help promote advancements to digital twins in the future. As a Japanese company and as a global Makino, I thank CGTech for their great cooperation and look forward to deepening our cooperative relationship with them."

The partnership provides peace-of-mind to Makino machine tool owners, allowing them to protect their investment in the highest quality machines with Vericut’s comprehensive simulation capabilities. Utilizing Vericut digital twins of Makino machines to verify the accuracy and quality of NC programs ensures that users’ NC programs will perform on even the most complicated machines, as intended, with the most accurate collision-detection available. Inefficient motion or programming errors that could potentially ruin a part, damage the fixture, or break the cutting tool can be corrected before the program is run on the machine tool itself.
