Celeritive Technologies has signed a license agreement with Missler Software, the developers of TopSolid. Under terms of the agreement, Missler Software will integrate Celeritive's ultra high-performance toolpath engine, VoluMill, into Missler's TopSolid CAD/CAM product and offer VoluMill 3-axis applications as an option upgrade, which is expected to provide users with improved rough milling productivity, the company says.
"This software investment was essential. Although TopSolid CAM has a long list of features for metal removal (trochoidal, cutter overlap bigger than tool radius), we needed a technology that provided deep depths of cut in difficult to machine materials such as Inconel or titanium. The integration of VoluMill allow us to satisfy all our customers currently subject to these types of constraints," said Jean-Pierre Lugarini, technical director of CAM technologies at Missler Software.
"We are pleased to add Missler to our list of partnerships around the world. TopSolid has proven to be a critical solution for many of the world's leading manufacturers," said Terry Sorensen, CEO at Celeritive.
