Technology Sharing Brings Users Together at Alphacam’s UK User Group Meetings
Alphacam, an intelligent and intuitive CAD/CAM software for the Woodworking, Metal and Stone cutting industries, held two successful User Group Meetings, showcasing the latest 2016 R2 release of the software; bringing together users from various industries.
Taking place at two venues including the Coventry Manufacturing Technology Centre and the Clarion hotel in Dublin, the meetings were focused around Alphacam’s latest technology, enhancements and functionality.
Michael Pettit, Alphacam’s EMEA Sales Manager, reports that many customers who attended the events, were very impressed with the number of major technological upgrades that improve the range of Alphacam functions. He says: “Events like these are a great opportunity for us to show the users the new technology and also what’s coming down the line in the software. It’s nice to take them out of their normal working environment, and not only have a look at what the new functions are but how they would be used in the real world”.
The latest release of the software, Alphacam 2016 R2, was on show which included a number of new and enhanced items providing improvements with automation, machining and feature extraction. Alphacam 2016 R2 also contains a range of general improvements, along with new user interface commands for faster and simpler ways of working.
