The centre was set up in response to increasing consumer demand and propelled by a desire to stay ahead in what it describes as a competitive and fast-moving market, the company says. It is in addition to its main UK head office in Barnsley and southern office in Towcester, Northhamptonshire.
The Technology Centre, Unit 4B, Winslow Road, will provide dedicated support and training to its customers, as well as a location to demonstrate and prove out SolidCAM software.
Live cutting demonstrations showing the power of SolidCAM’s leading milling modules, including the iMachining module that optimises tool cutting angles and feedrates for faster and deeper machining, will be shown on a Romi D-800 Vertical Machining Centre supplied by Romi Machines UK.
Developing upon previous work, live SolidCAM and iMachining webinars will be broadcast from the new technology centre directly to attendees’ screens. Recordings of webinars can be seen on video-sharing website YouTube.
Gordon Drysdale, managing director, SolidCAM UK, says that the principal reason for the expansion is to improve customer service. He says: “We are dedicated to investing in the development of all elements of our company in order to ensure we uphold our reputation for high standards.”
“Many of our customers use premium and expensive materials and demand absolute accuracy in production. With SolidCAM, we can offer the reliability, productivity and cost reductions essential for success in these sectors, and demonstrating these factors gives our customers’ the confidence to invest”, adds Drysdale.
