NCG CAM Solutions Ltd, based in Cambridge, UK has recently purchased a license to the source code for the DEPOCAM product from Parametric Technology Corporation (“PTC”), The Product Development Company.®
Although the company is newly formed, all of the staff at NCG CAM Solutions Ltd have worked with the DEPOCAM software for a number of years at NC Graphics (Cambridge) Ltd before it was acquired by PTC® and are launching a newly branded product called NCG CAM.
With Dr Arthur Flutter and Mr Dieter Trinkner as joint Managing Directors, NCG CAM Solutions Ltd will independently develop and enhance NCG CAM. The first release of NCG CAM includes a simultaneous 5-axis add-on module, with 5-axis machine simulation to be added in the next software release, planned for later this year. NCG CAM will continue to load Pro/ENGINEER® files by utilizing the Granite® kernel from PTC. Other services provided by the company are software support and writing post-processors for any CAM software using G-post.
“We are very excited about this opportunity and look forward to offering customers an excellent product, complete with a first class technical support service,.” says John Ellis, Head of Customer Support.
NCG CAM Solutions Ltd is currently looking for additional software resellers for its already growing global reseller network. Please contact Estelle Dunsmuir for more information –
