CNC Software Inc. (Tolland, CT), developers of Mastercam CAD/CAM software, has announced a new partnership with GARR TOOL to provide GARR’s complete line of cutting tools as a native, Mastercam tool library. GARR TOOL is an ISO 9001:2015-certified manufacturer of high-performance solid carbide cutting tools, 100% made in the U.S. GARR TOOL produces over 14,000 tools a day, with a focus on end mills, drills, reamers, and roughers.
“We’re excited to offer the complete cutting tool line from GARR TOOL in a native Mastercam tool library format, and make it available to our user base of over 280,000,” said Stas Mylek, partnership program manager, CNC Software Inc. “The collaborative effort between both companies provides Mastercam users easy and integrated access to the latest high-performance cutting tools from GARR TOOL,” Mylek continued.
Mastercam users can download the GARR TOOL cutting tool library, containing both inch and metric tools, from the Mastercam Tech Exchange. The native, Mastercam 3D tool database is fully compatible with Mastercam 2019, 2020, and the latest Mastercam 2021 release. The new library features over 11,000 GARR end mills, drills, reamers, and roughers, including the new VRX-6, VX-7, and 1880KD series of tools introduced to the market in October 2020.
“GARR TOOL is proud to partner with Mastercam to offer our complete tool library to customers natively inside the Mastercam platform,” said John Leppien II, vice president of GARR TOOL. “As the manufacturing process becomes more and more reliant on instant and easy access to data, we believe this partnership will be of tremendous value for current and future customers. Mastercam has been instrumental in helping to bring our library into the digital space. They are an excellent partner and we’re excited to continue working with them to update and improve our library as we move forward.”
