In addition, Surfware recently received a Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for its Engagement Milling technology. A Notice of Allowance signifies that the application has been examined and is allowed for issuance as a patent. The U.S. Patent Office accepted all key aspects of the company's patent application.
Says Stephen Diehl, President and CEO of Surfware. "The mathematics and science behind Engagement Milling are revolutionary, and we have incorporated that technology into our SURFCAM product line as TrueMill. We are pleased to receive this Notice of Allowance because it serves to protect our intellectual property and proprietary technology that we developed and are demonstrating at IMTS."
SURFCAM Velocity 4 offers major improvements to 3-axis finishing, 4- and 5-axis machining and TrueMill, the proven industry leader in toolpath technology.
-- 3-Axis Finishing: New high-speed machining strategies featuring faster processing, multiple processor support, automatic arc filtering, excellent tool control for difficult corners, tapered tools, improved surface finish --- and more.
-- 4/5-Axis Machining: precise control over every aspect of multi-axis machining ensuring safe tool motion in the most challenging applications. Drive surface gouge checking, advanced check surface gouge scenario handling, additional retract and swarf cutting options -- and more.
-- TrueMill: provision of recommended Truemill(TM) speeds and feeds, improved feedrate optimization, greatly reduced rapid motions, availability of Swift-carb custom designed TrueMill Series tools designed to further improve performance with TrueMill. With TrueMill, the more difficult to machine the material, the greater the competitive advantage.
"We are delighted to introduce SURFCAM Velocity 4 at IMTS," says Diehl. "This release adds additional world-class features to SURFCAM and solves issues that limited TrueMill's performance. It takes the unique, patent- pending TrueMill technology to a new level of excellence.
"We are just beginning to demonstrate what this powerful technology can do," Diehl adds. "Because TrueMill is useful to a wide spectrum of industries, Surfware looks forward to providing custom and turnkey solutions, as well as partnering with vendors of complementary technologies as we continue to build on the great quality and scalability of our product."
