EdgeCAM Winning for Solids Based Machining

Beavercreek, OHIO USA, (June 11, 2003) – Automated Technology Solutions (ATS) is pleased to announce a record breaking month for sales of EdgeCAM, Pathtrace’s offline programming software. ATS is seeing accelerated migration to EdgeCAM by users from aging systems, incapable of solids-based machining.

“Solids is really the way of the future for design,” said Brad Weaver, CEO, ATS. “We are finding that more and more people are looking for faster ways to program solid parts either designed in house, or submitted from outside sources. The best way to do that is by using the native model and leveraging all the knowledge that the designer puts in.” ATS is one of Pathtrace’s most successful resellers.

EdgeCAM Solid Machinist is a totally integrated CAM system for generating machining strategies and NC code from all the major CAD players in the market. The user is able to import files directly into EdgeCAM where a wide range of innovative features offer a quick and reliable route to manufacture. The latest release of EdgeCAM has the ability to load thread information, construction planes and assemblies from the CAD model. The system has the ability to inform users when the model changes and requests a re-load.

“It’s encouraging to see this kind of success in a tough market,” commented Steve Sivitter, CEO, Pathtrace Systems, Inc. “With the shift to solids in today’s manufacturing market, it’s important to offer users what they want and need. Pathtrace and ATS are able to do that with EdgeCAM.”
