Celeritive Technologies Joins Orderfox.com as Strategic Partner
As part of the partnership, new registrants to Orderfox.com can use a promo code to get a free year-long license to VoluMill Nexion Essentials CAM software.
Following the announcement that Autodesk is becoming a strategic partner of Orderfox.com, the website has announced that Celeritive Technologies Inc., developer of VoluMill and VoluTurn, is also partnering with Orderfox.com.
“At Orderfox.com, we look at operational efficiencies not just from a capacity standpoint, but also in regards to how members can benefit from focused research, industry knowledge and cost-saving measures through the use of proper solutions,” says Brian J. Smith, Orderfox America president. “As we analyzed the status of the industry, and where we think it will lead in the future, regardless of physical locations, we feel that having the right partners in place will provide added benefits. And utilizing the right tools like what Celeritive offers will ultimately and effectively provide our community members a competitive advantage.”
“With more than a decade of success in helping manufacturers identify profit and revenue opportunities, Celeritive’s decision to partner with Orderfox.com was simple,” says Greg Saisselin, vice president of sales and marketing for Celeritive Technologies. “It’s easy to understand the value and benefits for our larger customers who are actively seeking job shop services, or for job shops looking to gain exposure into a much broader global market.”
With this new partnership comes the launch of VoluMill Nexion Essentials, Celeritive’s platform-independent tool path generation software for rough milling that works with any CAD or CAM system. Combined with the Orderfox.com platform, manufacturers can use VoluMill to increase capacity, reduce costs and find new revenue opportunities via the free Orderfox.com network.
For a limited time, new Orderfox registrants can receive a one-year, no-cost license of VoluMill Nexion Essentials. Those wishing to take advantage of this limited offer can visit volumill.com/orderfox and enter the promo code VOLUMILL01. Only new registrants who sign up through the Celeritive Technologies link will quality.
Programming a robot with the same CAM software used for a multi-axis machine tool makes it unnecessary to “teach” the robot by jogging it manually from point to point and recording these point-to-point moves as the robot’s motion commands. Robotmaster is a software package that provides this CAD/CAM-based, off-line programming for robots. It runs fully integrated inside Mastercam CAM software for CNC machine tools.
The additional rotary milling axis on these machines allows them to complete many types of complex parts in a single setup, but these machines have gained a reputation for being difficult to program. Today’s CAM software, however, eases the programming challenge significantly.
The right way to program curves? A solution to yesterday's problems? The truth is probably somewhere in between.
