Kitamura, CAMplete Solutions Announce Software Partnership
The partnership revolves around the latter’s TruePath postprocessing, verification and optimization software for five-axis machines.
Kitamura Machinery (Wheeling, Illinois) has announced a partnership with CAMplete Solutions Inc. to equip the latter’s TruePath software on Kitamura’s vertical and horizontal five-axis machining centers worldwide.
An integrated suite of postprocessing, verification and optimization tools dedicated to five-axis machining centers, CAMplete’s TruePath software package enables the analysis, modification, optimization and simulation of multi-axis tool paths in an integrated environment. In fact, the software directly integrates with most CAM software, the company says.
Ted Asano, Kitamura’s director/general sales manager, says that Kitamura’s machining centers, made in Japan, “offer the end user superior accuracy and reliability necessary for machining in today’s competitive market. In working together with CAMplete in the development of the TruePath software, we have made the challenges and complexity of five-axis machining easier and worry-free for our end users.”
