ICAM Technologies and Dassault Systemes Sign an Original Software Development Partnership
ICAM Technologies Corporation and Dassault Systemes (Nasdaq: DASTY; Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA) announced today the signing of an Original Software Development (OSD) Agreement . Under the agreement ICAM’s CAM-POST® customized (NC) Post-Processing technology will be embedded into the open architecture of Dassault Systemes’ CATIA V5R8 CAD/CAM/CAE software solution, and other Dassault Systemes solutions.
The resulting product is designed to provide a framework for both ICAM Technologies Corporation and Dassault Systemes to deliver the most robust, comprehensive solution for a wide range of customer manufacturing needs from product creation to development.
“We are especially pleased to have signed this Agreement with Dassault Systemes. ICAM’s extensive experience in the aerospace, automotive and defense industries, and our reputation for product innovation, quality, and service is well matched with Dassault Systemes,” explains John J Nassr president of ICAM Technologies. “With this agreement o ur joint customers can look forward to a next-generation solution unequaled in the industry. ”
For over three decades ICAM has been contributing to the evolution of NC post-processing technology by consistently supporting the latest multi-axis NC machinery and the most advanced CNC controls. ICAM has also redefined NC post-processing by introducing new, innovative NC machining productivity tools, such as: NURBS, Arc Fitting and High Speed Machining. Manufacturers worldwide thus benefit from ICAM’s trusted “Best-in-Class” NC post-processing technology and focused expert support staff, to provide a solution tailored to their specific needs .
“This Original Software Development Agreement is the result of years of collaboration between our CATIA customers, Dassault Systemes and ICAM Technologies,” adds Sam Chehab, Vice President of Sales for ICAM Technologies. “It is also the foundation upon which we are building a broad range of NC programming solutions to meet the requirements of CATIA customers as their manufacturing challenges evolve.”
Dassault Systemes is committed to support their customer “part to production” processes with best in class manufacturing solutions. CATIA V5’s NC Manufacturing Solutions already offer the largest portfolio of manufacturing applications available in a single system. Integrating ICAM’s state-of-the-art capabilities into CATIA V5 applications offers the user a unique and powerful solution to generate the data necessary to run their machine tools.
“We are very pleased to welcome ICAM in our integrated V5 NC manufacturing solutions. It will bring to our customers the combination of ICAM recognized post-processing expertise with highly productive V5 NC applications,” said Alain Quemat, NC Manufacturing Solutions Director, Dassault Systemes.
Dassault Systemes is the premier global 3D PLM solutions provider. 3D PLM enables customers to optimize their business Processes for Engineering, Manufacturing, Maintenance & Support, using Collaborative Workspaces to share a common product, process and resource model (PPR). With PPR, companies can capture, share and reuse Knowledge all along the Product lifecycle. The open CAA V5 (Component Application Architecture)allows extension and integration of this solution within multiple enterprise environments.
