Gunslingers Hit The Target For Edgecam

Edgecam’s latest ‘Gunslingers’ quality forum has ensured that the upcoming release of the market leading CAM software remains the hottest shot in town. 

The Gunslingers event, held in Charlotte, North Carolina, focused on the software’s latest release, Edgecam 2012 R2.  Application engineers and a number of key end-users tested the upcoming release and investigated new applications with real life situations provided by customers. Their feedback and suggestions for additional amendments were then passed on to Edgecam’s development team, and tested again.

Edgecam is one of the Vero group’s advanced software products serving the metal engineering industry. Raf Lobato, Edgecam General Manager, says: “The Gunslinger events ensure we develop software that customers need, based on current market requirements, and highlight the best ways for resellers to introduce the new functionality.”

The three day event looked at how Edgecam and its resellers are meeting current challenges.  It also reviewed the Edgecam ‘road map’ leading to the development path being changed to cater to the latest market needs, and included two days of testing and feedback.

New developments in Edgecam 2012 R2 include:

  • Quill support
  • Advanced 5-axis cycle
  • New finish groove cycle
  • Rotary feature find and rotary machining
  • Improved JavaScript customisation tools
  • Toolpath Verification and Simulation improvements.

Domenic Lanzillotta, Edgecam Channel Manager says: “Gunslingers ensures Edgecam resellers have an input on the software’s development path, and means we share proven plans and ideas that help improve both our business and our customers’ business.”

Mike Williams, from ECAD Inc., says: “Gunslingers was extremely informative, and it looks as if the new functions in Edgecam 2012 R2 will be valuable assets for taking production machining to the next level, giving manufacturers an additional competitive edge.”
