ICAM & Dalian Machine Tool Group Sign Strategic Marketing Agreement

ICAM Technologies Corporation (ICAM) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Strategic Marketing Agreement (SMA) with Dalian Machine Tool Group (DMTG), China’s largest machine tool builder. The main purpose of this agreement is to assure the accurate integration of ICAM’s NC post-processing and machine tool simulation solution with advanced Dalian machine tools.

This business relationship provides ICAM access to DMTG’s commercially available machine tools and controls and their design specifications. The sharing of technical knowledge and other resources will allow for a successful integration of ICAM and DMTG’s respective products and services ultimately enabling end-users to benefit from sophisticated DMTG machine tool features via their respective CAD / CAM / PLM systems.

DMTG and ICAM will also collaborate on strategic marketing initiatives, as well as promote each other’s products and services in the NC manufacturing industry.

This newly formed relationship enables DMTG customers to benefit from ICAM’s 35 years of NC post-processing experience with advanced multi-axis machining applications and techniques such as high-speed machining, tool-tip programming, coordinate frame transformations, NURBS interpolation and arc fitting of point-to-point data.

Additionally, deploying Virtual Machine as a harmonized productivity tool to ICAM’s N C post-processing technology delivers a powerful machine tool simulation environment enabling NC programmers to optimize and test programs against collisions and over-travel automatically during post-processing.

“We are proud to support the efforts of Dalian to penetrate the 5-axes market in China,” said Sam Chehab, ICAM’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With this newly formed business relationship, end-users particularly within the aerospace and automotive industries will have easier access to Dalian’s advanced machine tool features using ICAM’s advanced solutions concurrently with their CAD / CAM / PLM systems.”

For individuals interested to view product demonstrations, ICAM will be exhibiting at EMO 2007 in Hanover, Germany at Stand F12, Hall 6.

“The Chinese machine tool market is growing rapidly and we plan to diversify our product line to include state-of-the-art 5-axes machines primarily targeted to the aerospace and automotive industries,” said Baoqing Zhou, Chief Engineer at Dalian. “ICAM has been the leading supplier of advanced NC manufacturing software products worldwide for over 35 years and we are confident that our customers will now benefit from an integrated NC post-processing and machine tool simulation solutions allowing them to capitalize on Dalian machine tool investments.”
