What are some new technical trends in enterprise resource planning (ERP) software?
What makes a CAM system “good,” in our opinion, is the quality of its post processor and the technical support provided by the vendor. When programming questions are answered quickly and accurately, and the system produces good code, programming is simplified and machine utilization goes up, while both setup and cycle times drop.

HCL Technologies, a global technology company, has implemented a program to provide a free CAMWorks Home License and Technology Upgrade for customers during April and May 2020, in an effort to minimize the disruption from the COVID-19 outbreak.
Holemaking. A layperson might think, “what could be simpler?” But a machinist knows better because there’s a lot to consider when creating a streamlined toolpath.
One of mankind’s oldest manufacturing methods—making a hole—is now challenged by rapid advances, including new and harder materials, increased part complexity, ever smaller component parts, and the need for shorter cycle times.
The push to modernize technology-intensive sectors in Asia—such as automotive, aerospace and general engineering—is constantly stretching machine tool builders in the region to their limits. The demand is not just for standard machines.
