Scottsdale, Arizona. January 08, 2008 - Geometric Technologies, Inc. (formerly TekSoft, Inc.), an industry leader in developing advanced manufacturing software, will showcase the latest releases of CAMWorks® and DFMPro at SolidWorks World 2008 (booth #539) in San Diego, California, from January 20 to 23, 2008.
CAMWorks was the first SolidWorks® certified Gold CAM product and the first CAM solution to offer knowledge-based feature recognition and associative machining capabilities, seamlessly integrated into the SolidWorks 3D mechanical design software. The combination of the latest innovations in CAMWorks 2008 and SolidWorks' excellence in design, continue to make CAMWorks a premier CAM solution. The latest release of CAMWorks has over 50 enhancements and new features to machine faster and more accurately. This release has significant advances in 3-axis functionality, new features and cutting strategies for 2 to 5 axis milling, turning and wire EDM. More information on CAMWorks is available at www.camworks.com.
The recently launched DFMPro 2008 add-on for SolidWorks is a revolutionary "Design for Manufacturability" product developed for designers and manufacturing engineers to facilitate upstream manufacturability validation and identification of areas in design that are difficult, expensive or impossible to manufacture. DFMPro is engineered for quick and in-depth examination of product manufacturability. DFMPro is an advanced version of DFMXpress, a free tool shipped with every seat of SolidWorks 2008. More information on DFMPro is available at www.dfmpro.com.
Demonstrations of CAMWorks and DFMPro will be available in booth #539 throughout the three-day conference. Attendees will have the opportunity to speak with the company's application engineers and executives and learn about CAMWorks and DFMPro at the following presentations:
o Geometric Technologies will present "CAMWorks, Machining Intelligence for Automation" at the Certified Partner Theater on Wednesday, January 23, at 12:30 p.m. Director of Support and Services, Michael Sours, will demonstrate the latest innovations in CAMWorks and the close integration in SolidWorks that facilitates machining processes and boosts shop productivity.
o Head of R&D, Desktop Products and Technologies, Sameer Kondejkar, will provide a hands-on session on "Design for Manufacturability Validation within SolidWorks" in room #5-B on Wednesday, January 23, at 10:30 a.m. Participants will learn how to optimize design for manufacturability within the SolidWorks environment. Attendees will use integrated DFMXpress and DFMPro review tools to evaluate design manufacturability. They will learn how to make changes to the design as recommended by the tool, without compromising on intent and functionality.
