Surfcam Velocity wins gold medal award at major
International Machine Tool show (IMT)
Watch Mr. Martin Riman, the Czech secretary of commerce, present
the gold medal for this major European show to Mr. Josef Maly of
3E Praha and Simon Voelker, Surfware's European Sales Manager.
December 20, 2006 - Surfware - In recognition of the dramatic and demonstrated benefits to the manufacturing industry, TrueMill Technology was awarded the Gold Medal at both the International Machine Tools Trade Fair (IMT) and the Machining Engineering Fair This year.
TrueMill Technology, the engine in Surfware's Surfcam Velocity® CAM software, yields dramatic throughput and productivity improvements to the machining environment. Toolpath generated by other software frequently overloads the cutter and puts undue strain on the machine. With TrueMillTM the cutter's engagement angle is precisely and constantly controlled and matched to both the material and cutter geometry. The result is a smooth, fluid machining motion which is free from any sudden tool load fluctuations common in traditional tool paths. This allows shorter cycle times by machining faster and deeper and the steady cutting promotes longer tool and machine life.
The 48th International Engineering Trade Fair and the 5th International Machine Tools Trade Fair (IMT) were held at the Brno Trade Fair Grounds from September 18th through 22nd, 2006. Over 2100 exhibitors from 32 countries filled the pavilions and all exhibition areas, including the United States, UK, China, India, Japan, Taiwan and Canada and all were promoting their latest technologies. Each year, the exhibitors vie for the show's top prize - The Trade Fair's Gold Medal.
The importance of the trade fair was highlighted by the presence of the Czech President Vaclav Klaus, who opened the fair, made presentation of the Gold Medal winner. 3E Praha Engineering's manufacturing experts combined with TrueMillTM technology resulted in the Gold Medal and a therefore a very successful 2006 International Engineering Fair.
In addition to the Brno Trade Fair, 3E Praha Engineering has won its second 1st Prize through the use of Surfware's TrueMillTM technology at the Machining Engineering Fair in Nitra in June 2006. These awards are given by Agrokomplex Company in Nitra each year. TrueMillTM technology was first introduced at the Czech and Slovak market in 2005 at MACH in Prague and MSV in Nitra Machining trade shows.
