CAVE CREEK, AZ, Sep 16, 2010 - Celeritive Technologies, Inc. has signed an agreement with Geometric, a leader in developing advanced manufacturing software, to offer the ultra-high-performance machining software program VoluMill™ as an option for its leading solid-based CNC programming solution CAMWorks®.
VoluMill toolpaths dynamically manage material removal rates to keep an even and user-controllable load on the cutting tool. Ideal machining conditions are established and maintained throughout the program for any combination of part geometry, material, machine, and cutting tool. Machine tools are fed commands that enable them to operate at peak efficiency levels, enabling the use of machining parameters that both reduce cycle times and extend cutting tool life.
“The combination of VoluMill and CAMWorks will allow our customers to fully leverage solids technology and provide better performance on the shop floor,” said Sunil Palrecha, Geometric’s Director of Product Marketing and Sales, who added, “We expect the addition of VoluMill to give us a sizable competitive advantage in the solids market segment.”
Lawrence Lynott, Celeritive Technologies’ vice president of sales, said, “This agreement will give VoluMill a strong partnership in the solids market segment and broaden its exposure and use in Europe and Asia.
CAMWorks® is an intuitive, solids-based CAM solution that helps manufacturers increase productivity and profitability through best-in-class technologies and adaptable automation tools that maximize machining efficiencies. It is simple to use and eliminates the drudgery of CNC programming with Intelligent Machining through automation.
CAMWorks was the first Gold Partner CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) solution designed exclusively to operate in SolidWorks. CAMWorks can run within SolidWorks, or as part of a cost-effective CAD/CAM package that includes CAMWorks Solids, an integrated solid modeler.
