Net revenues reported by Surfware Inc. for August 2005 were 42% higher than for the same period the previous year. The company attributes the dramatic increase to the recent introduction of a tool-path engine that allows the use of machining parameters in aggressive combinations that were not possible before.
“The company’s outstanding growth is undoubtedly the direct result of the release of SURFCAM Velocity,” said Domenic Lanzillotta, Surfware’s vice president of worldwide sales, referring to the latest offering from the CAD/CAM software specialist. “We are extremely excited about the future for Surfware and believe this groundbreaking technological advancement will revolutionize machining worldwide.”
Available only in SURFCAM Velocity is TrueMill tool-path technology, a completely original tool-path engine that dynamically and accurately manages the tool’s engagement with the workpiece material . This precise tool control enables machining parameters such as spindle speed, feed rate, depth of cut, and step-over to be specified in combinations that would result in material damage or tool breakage id used with existing tool-path generators.
SURFCAM software is designed for CNC programming of 2-, 3-, 4-, and 5-axis mills, lathes, wire EDMs, and laser, plasma, and water-jet machining equipment. In developing and improving the software, Surfware Inc. applies its considerable experience in machining technology to a process of continual innovation in addressing industrial design and manufacturing concerns.
