Delcam is predicting that IMTS will be its most successful metalworking exhibition worldwide for 2012. After enjoying its best year ever in North America in 2011, the company has seen further growth in its software sales of more than 20 percent in the first half of this year.
While the company invested more in its design (Booth E-3222) than ever before, with a predominant globe display acting as the centerpiece, the real key for its success may stem from the latest technology it is launching at the show and its numerous technology partners in machine tools, cutting tools and inspection. Delcam is proud of its broad range of software for milling, turning, wire EDM, Swiss, routing, engraving, electrode and mill-turn.
“In the buildup to IMTS, we worked closely with our development teams to ensure that our 2013 series of new releases was ready for us to demonstrate at the show, along with the latest technology advances, Vortex and MachineDNA,” says Glenn McMinn, president of Delcam North America. “Having a large development team and an in-house machine shop to test and prove out our software before it is released allows us to ensure that our software is not only as productive as we say it is but intelligent enough to keep up with the sophisticated machine tools being developed. Vortex, which is a new roughing strategy set to launch in the 2013 versions of PowerMill, FeatureCAM and PartMaker, and MachineDNA, an innovative method to harness your CNC machine productivity, are only two examples of the technology advances that Delcam is capable of.”
Delcam is also showing its latest versions of design software (PowerShape, with new functionality for direct modeling, reverse engineering and data repair) and inspection software (PowerInspect, which includes a new option for dual-column CMMs).
