CAVE CREEK, AZ, Nov. 12, 2012– Celeritive Technologies, Inc., developers of VoluMill™ – announced today that it has signed a license agreement with Missler Software, the developers of TopSolid headquartered in Evry, France. Under terms of the agreement, Missler Software will integrate Celeritive’s ultra high-performance toolpath engine VoluMill™ into Missler’s award-winning TopSolid® CAD/CAM product and offer VoluMill 3-axis applications as an option upgrade, which is expected to provide users with dramatically improved rough milling productivity.
VoluMill’s patent-pending technology generates toolpaths that produce a consistent material removal rate. Their smooth, flowing motion establishes and maintains ideal milling conditions in any part shape. Reduced forces on the spindle and cutting tool enable machining hardware to be safely utilized to its full capabilities. Uniform chip formation and excellent heat dissipation result in the previously unachievable combination of dramatically reduced cycle times and significantly extended cutting-tool life.
“This software investment was essential: "Although TopSolid' Cam has a long list of features for metal removal (trochoidal, cutter overlap bigger than tool radius), we needed a technology that provided deep depths of cut in difficult to machine materials such as Inconel or titanium. The integration of VoluMill allow us to satisfy all our customers currently subject to these types of constraints.” says Jean-Pierre Lugarini, Technical Director of CAM Technologies at Missler Software
“We are pleased to add Missler to our list of partnerships around the world. TopSolid has proven to be a critical solution for many of the world’s leading manufacturers” says Terry Sorensen, CEO for Celeritive.
