Camarillo, CA – August 6, 2009 - Surfware, Inc. announced that it had licensed the 25,000th seat of
SURFCAM CAD/CAM software in July. CAMcad Technologies located in Winter Springs, Florida is the SURFCAM dealer responsible
and their customer is the School of Engineering at the University of Alabama, Birmingham (UAB) campus.
"CAMcad has licensed and maintained SURFCAM since 1991 and has a reputation for being accessible and
knowledgeable" said Peter Marton, Surfware Sales Manager.
According to Allen Williams, Shop Manager at UAB's design and machining center, "We needed a CAM
system that initially has an easy to learn user interface. The students who use this software need to be able to import
their 3D models, apply tool path, and then generate code. No other software does this as easily and flawlessly as SURFCAM,
so we at UAB feel SURFCAM is the best choice to prepare our students for the machining challenges encountered in the
Says Don McKillop, President of CAMcad Technologies, "Alabama is a very progressive state with an aggressive,
state-sponsored educational policy towards manufacturing. Over the years we've sold SURFCAM to well over 100 companies in Alabama,
many with multiple licenses, and most are still on maintenance. We consider schools like UAB an investment in future NC programmers
and are happy to support them."
"Surfware’s new SURFCAM Velocity 4 gives the machinist such a step up in productivity that we expect a further leap
in installed industrial and educational seats," said Marton.
"The economic downturn gives shops a strong incentive to speed up machining times and lower costs – and that's what
SURFCAM delivers. Backlogs at companies such as Boeing create pent-up demand that will break loose the minute the news in financial markets
becomes a bit more optimistic. People's expectations are what drive the economy, and with a little foresight, folks will take advantage of
this slack time to investigate ways to be ahead of the game when demand surges, as it always does after a downturn," Marton said.
