Third Wave Systems Receives Contract
The company will develop modeling technologies.

Updated NC Program Optimization Software Promotes Better Part Quality
Version 6.1 of Third Wave System’s Production Module NC program optimization software integrates physics-based workpiece material models, cutting tool geometries, CAD/CAM inputs and more.

Savings from Sustainability
A project aimed at energy-efficient machining delivered production efficiencies, too.

Third Wave Announces Design for Manufacturing Research Project
Third Wave Systems is working to develop a new manufacturing-informed design paradigm as part of the United States Department of Energy’s $54 million Innovative Manufacturing Initiative (IMI). IMI is a national program unveiled in response to the Obama Administration’s blueprint for building lasting economic foundations.

Third Wave Consolidates Facilities
Third Wave Systems' has combined its productivity center and headquarters in Minnesota into a single facility.

Research Program Aims to Improve Gear Hobbing
Third Wave Systems (Minneapolis, Minnesota) has commenced a multi-faceted research program focused on streamlining and improving the gear-hobbing machining process.
