Merrem Kunststoffen B.V. rapidly expands with IronCAD and NCG CAM

ATLANTA GA, August 26th 2015  -IronCAD, a leading provider of design productivity solutions, today announced a successful collaboration between  IronCAD and   NCG CAM at Merrem Kunststoffen B.V. in the Netherlands. Offering a complete design through manufacturing program, Merrem is recognized as one of the most advanced supplier of technical plastics components for different sectors in West Europe including molds for automotive.

According to Merrem engineers, many integrated CAD/CAM packages are good at some things, but are weak when working with STEP geometry. Having standalone CAD that works well alongside their standalone CAM, gives Merrem a strong solution, as both products are focused in their own strengths. Using  IronCAD and  NCG CAM, Merrem produces molds for: Wheel house liners, Engine compartments, Luggage compartments, Roof liners and Poultry farming machinery.

Merrem found that  IronCAD operates very well as a complementary offering to  NCG CAM. They initially purchased  IronCAD to import and repair imprecise STEP files received from their customers.  IronCAD is able to automatically recover imprecise geometry files using integrated healing tools. Merrem found that this capability is especially useful with CATIA and STEP files and the repaired geometry can be read into the  NCG CAM swiftly with no problems.  IronCAD can also import DXF and DWG files and subsequently export a STEP file for downstream consumption. This powerful  IronCAD capability offers abilities that Merrem has not been able to accomplish with any other software.     

Since using  IronCAD and  NCG CAM, Merrem Kunststoffen has realized the following benefits:

•  Using  IronCAD, they can now manufacture more complex products that were not possible before. This increase in capacity has allowed them to rapidly expand their business.

•  Parts can be created and machined much faster utilizing  IronCAD. Jobs that used to take hours, now take just minutes.

•  Merrem has continued their success by expanding their business further into Germany, Estonia and Latvia.

"For programming our CNC machines, we use  NCG CAM in combination with  IronCAD. Using  IronCAD and  NCG CAM makes the programming of our products a lot faster and much easier. We are very pleased with the  IronCAD/NCG CAM combination." Says Ramon Leonhardt – Merrem Kunststoffen B.V.

Cary O'Connor, Vice President of IronCAD agreed, "We have many customers around the world using  IronCAD in collaboration with CAD, CAM and CAE packages. Merrem have shown that a successful integration of two highly productive software systems can reap enormous benefit."
