The automotive industry is in a state of flux and has been greatly affected by globalization, economic factors and ever-changing
lifestyle choices. Consumers worldwide have more vehicle choices than ever, putting pressure on vehicle manufacturers to deliver
quality automobiles as efficiently as possible.
While Cad/Cam software may not affect a consumer’s choice between a sedan or a SUV, the effect of a highly cost-efficient
Cad/Cam solution can greatly increase production productivity, quality and speed to market. Surfware’s SURFCAM Cad/Cam software
Powered by TrueMill® is the indisputable leader in providing cost-effective automotive industry solutions that increase quality,
and double or in some cases triple production productivity.
SURFCAM with TrueMill option is ideal for “lean” manufacturing solutions, allowing automotive industry manufacturers to improve
the accuracy and efficiency of production and assembly line processes and optimize the use of parts and labor. The innovation
and efficiency required by the automotive industry is achieved by the innovation, time-savings and cost-savings made possible by
Among other features, SURFCAM offers: 5-Axis Porting, TrueMill® High Speed Milling, and Advanced Finishing.
Machine into seemingly impossible ports with SURFCAM 5-Axis CAD/CAM. Advanced Vector control to prevent the cutter shaft
from touching the port sidewals.
SURFCAM certified dealers are the most highly experienced in the industry at implementing and training 5-Axis
CAD/CAM programming. You won't be buying a software that can just verify 5-Axis motion. You will see the reality of
machining quality 5-Axis parts.
