Nothing is changing faster or more profoundly than the software used to design and machine parts. To help shops keep up with the latest competitive advances being introduced on the shop floor, here is a report on some of the newest CAD/CAM software.
And what drives machining growth? Aerodyn Engineering uses intuitive 5-axis CAM software from OPEN MIND Technologies that “gets it.”
Dave Atkinson does automation and special projects to support U.S. staff and resellers.
The Greenville, SC, location is staffed by Charles Logan Gilstrap and Jeffrey Sullivan.
Sandy Moffat will further develop their European distribution channel.
Shops are using this innovative CAM software to increase their machine tool productivity with more efficient toolpaths in more applications — and also to improve their own CNC programming productivity.
This new CAD/CAM application marries the power and functionality of parametric design with the robust and powerful milling capabilities of standalone CAM software.
Waveform turning, multiple machining sequence support, ribbon bar and interface updates, and the inclusion of Wire EDM are the newest CAD/CAM game changers that machine shops need to compete in a global economy.
