 CNC Software, Inc. is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2008. The company's Mastercam product is said to have the highest number of CAD/CAM seats installed worldwide, totaling 135,824 at the end of last year. The latest version, Mastercam X3, is scheduled for release in the third quarter of 2008. This version is said to include feature-based machining, new high speed tool motion and faster toolpath generation capabilities as well as other enhancements. CNC Software is also expanding its headquarters in Tolland, Connecticut to a total of 50,000 square feet. A 12,000-square-feet addition will include office space and house a larger R&D machine shop. The company plans to add a turn/mill machine, a Swiss-type lathe and a router to the shop's current stable of five-axis and three-axis machine tools. The Tolland campus will feature a 72-kW photovoltaic solar array that the company hopes will generate 25 percent of the electricity that the facility requires. Other energy-conserving and environmentally friendly measures the company has adopted in its building include geothermal heating and cooling; radiant floor heating; spray foam insulation; T8 fluorescent lighting; and low-VOC paint and carpet. The company says it has taken these measures not only to reduce energy costs, but also to provide a healthy work environment for its employees.
