The Oregon Manufacturing Innovation Center Research and Development (OMIC R&D) recently welcomed Mastercam/CNC Software, Inc. as a member of the collaboration, now at 40 members. CNC Software, Inc., headquartered in Tolland, Connecticut with corporate offices in Switzerland and China, develops Mastercam, a suite of CAD/CAM software created to reduce production time and expense with efficient machining strategies and advanced toolpath technologies like Accelerated Finishing™ and Dynamic Motion™.
Craig Campbell, executive director of OMIC R&D said, “We are extremely excited to have Mastercam as a member. CNC Software, Inc. will provide us with the ability to add uniform programming language that we can use on our broad range of machines, as well as opportunities in training and workforce development due to their investment in that area.”
Mastercam is the world’s leading CAM software, with more than 287,000 installations across the aerospace, automotive, medical, die/mold, consumer products, education, and prototyping industries.
“I am very excited that Mastercam has become a member of OMIC R&D,” said Stas Mylek, partnership program manager of CNC Software, Inc. “We immediately began discussing opportunities for Mastercam to engage in opportunities to introduce students to our premier programming language. This collaboration also aligns well with our dedication to research and development aimed at manufacturing technology. Our partnership will most definitely play a part in setting the tenor for the future of manufacturing.”
Joshua Koch, business development manager for OMIC R&D added, “My first introduction to Mastercam was 10 years ago with X6 while in trade school, so to at long last be a partner is very exciting. Our profession is constantly evolving, especially in a place like OMIC R&D. Mastercam is a leader in CAD/CAM because they have never stopped evolving—they were pushing the envelope a decade ago and will be pushing it a decade from now. We look forward to showing regional and national companies what is possible through our work in research and development using Mastercam software.”
