Surfware proudly showcased its latest release of SURFCAM V5.2 at EMO 2011. EMO is a world premier international trade fair located in Hannover, Germany which brings approximately 2000 companies from 41 countries in the metalworking industry from around the world and representing their products and services during the six-day event based on the theme “More than Machine Tools.”
Visitors stopped by the SURFCAM booth and had an opportunity to learn all about the latest features and benefits of SURFCAM V5.2 as well as learn how to increase their shops productivity and reduce operating costs using patented TRUEMill toolpath technology. Live demonstrations were performed on an Okuma MB-46VEA CNC Machine with an OSP-P200 control cutting Titanium, Toolox and Aluminum. These demonstrations were designed to show how shops can increase machining material removals rates by up to five times while increasing cutting tool life by up to ten times while, at the same time, drastically decreasing their machining cycle times.
Surfware also invites you to see SURFCAM V5.2 showcasing this year at EUROMOLD 2011, the world fair for moldmaking and tooling design. 3D Concepts GmbH, the 2010 Reseller of the Year and one of Surfware's worldwide network of resellers, will be hosting the event featured in Hall 8, Booth F110 at the Exhibition Center in Frankfurt / Main, Germany, from November 29 - December 2, 2011. This show is an exciting opportunity to see live demonstrations and learn how to increase your shop’s productivity using the latest technologies in SURFCAM V5.2.
Titan America is located in Grass Valley, California established by Titan Gilroy in 2005 to serve American manufacturing needs of the aerospace and sub-sea industries. Titan America machines most any type of material; “there is nothing that I turn away from," says Gilroy, if it can be done by a CNC Machine, we'll do it."
In 2008, Titan America lost a $4 million dollar contract which resulted in almost every job on the shop floor coming to an abrupt halt. As a business owner, Gilroy was faced with closing the doors or reinventing the company. Titan decided to take a risk and take on some of the most difficult parts required by the aerospace industry. “These jobs were very ‘high risk, high reward,’” explains Gilroy, "the aerospace industry needed these titanium and Inconel parts, but that were highly complex and in amounts with very low quantities causing my customer to hesitate at exporting the production overseas."
After securing a few purchase orders for these difficult parts, Gilroy turned to SURFCAM to get the job done. “Turning to SURFCAM was the best thing I ever did,” says Gilroy, “using the TRUEMill toolpaths allowed Titan America to step up its game and compete with larger manufacturing companies. TRUEMill is exactly what is needed to cut titanium in the 21st century! With TRUEMill, I can machine at much faster speeds and feeds. We no longer have to machine at 10 inches per minute, instead we run 10 to 15 times faster than that, and with a much cooler tool. All while machining some of the most incredible parts and delivering high quality products to our customers.”
Titan America continues to grow, with contracts in the aerospace industry as well as other manufacturing sectors. They work mostly with aircraft-grade titanium, stainless steel, aluminum and plastic and provide the work at very competative prices. “We are continuing to grow every month and I owe it all to SURFCAM!” says Gilroy.
