Alphacam To Develop Custom Software For SCM Woodworking Machines

28 July 2006 - Leading design-to-manufacturing software developer Alphacam has been commissioned by woodworking and panel processing equipment manufacturer SCM to develop a series of CAD/CAM modules specifically for its range of advanced CNC production machines.

Designated the SCM Pro series, the new software builds on the proven strengths of Alphacam’s woodworking applications with a series of new features aimed at maximising the productivity of SCM’s comprehensive range of routers, machining centres, panel sizing and moulding machines. At the heart of the new software’s capabilities are its intuitive operation, familiar Windows-based interface and the requirement for only minimal user training.

“The selection of Alphacam to develop software to complement the capabilities of our production equipment was a logical extension to an already strong relationship, “says SCM’s sales director Mike King. “The company’s long experience of supplying benchmark solutions for woodworking industry customers closely matches our own. Like us, Alphacam is recognised as a technology leader in its chosen field.”

Alphacam’s managing director, Ian Scott agrees. “SCM has been a leading manufacturer of woodworking machinery for 50 years, with a product range that covers everything from equipment for small woodworking shops, through to custom-engineered, high volume integrated production lines. We are delighted to have been chosen to develop this new range of manufacturing software on SCM’s behalf.”

SCM ProDOOR, the first of the new series of SCM software applications, is already available. It is supplied with an in-built library of 10 door styles and provides users with powerful functionality to simplify the specification and processing of all aspects of door production - including product sizing, cut-outs for glazing apertures and letter plates, hinge and lock recessing, and hole drilling for handles and spy holes. The software is supplied complete with one day’s on-site training and 12 month’s software support.

Further members of the SCM Pro series are already in development - with modules geared to the production of windows, stairs and cabinets scheduled for release over the coming months.
