Scottsdale, Arizona, – January 26, 2006 – TekSoft and Lantek have signed a software licensing and distribution agreement. Under the terms of this agreement, Lantek grants TekSoft distribution rights for Lantek sheet metal software through TekSoft's international VAR network. The software for punching, laser, waterjet, plasma and oxyfuel machines will be marketed under the FABWorks name.
TekSoft, a leading provider of CAD/CAM applications since 1981, develops and markets CAMWorks, which is available for machining centers, turning, mill/turn, multiaxis and wire EDM applications. CAMWorks is a SolidWorks® Certified Gold CAM Product that provides state-of-the-art machining capabilities seamlessly integrated into SolidWorks 3D mechanical design software. FABWorks also provides an integrated interface between the SolidWorks® design environment and the FABWorks machining environment. Parts that are designed in SolidWorks can be automatically unfolded and transferred directly to FABWorks for machining.
The benefits of this agreement were clear to both companies and negotiations were concluded quickly.
“TekSoft has over 20 years of experience in developing and selling CAD/CAM software through a large VAR network. When they decided to expand their product range to include sheet metal software, they investigated the fabrication systems available in the market and talked to our competitors," stated Alberto Martínez, Lantek's Managing Director. "In addition to Lantek's best-in-class CAD/CAM software, our international reputation as a leading software company in the sheet metal industry made their decision an easy one.”
According to Mike Coleman, President and CEO of TekSoft, “We seek out the best-in-class solutions, we negotiate and we license. This allows us to provide a full suite of established and proven CAM solutions while offering ongoing enhancements. The agreement with Lantek enables us to quickly offer our customers a product that is at the forefront of the sheet metal software industry. ” Coleman also stated that TekSoft is offering FABWorks at a significant discount to its existing ProCAM fabrication customers to encourage them to make the transition.
