Delcam Italia appoints Italy's largest SolidWorks dealer as DFS reseller

Delcam Italia has appointed Nuovamacut Spa Automation (Team System Group) as the main reseller in Italy for Delcam’s integrated CAM system for SolidWorks, Delcam for SolidWorks. This appointment continues the growing popularity of Delcam for SolidWorks within the SolidWorks reseller channel since the software was awarded Gold Product status. Delcam welcomes approaches from other established SolidWorks resellers wanting to add its CAM software to their product ranges.

Nuovamacut Spa Automation (Team System Group) was the first organisation certified by SolidWorks to provide software, training and consultancy in Italy. With more than 10,000 licences installed at over 4,000 customers, it is now the leading SolidWorks reseller in the country, and one of the largest in the world. Nuovamacut was originally founded in 1955 as a distributor of machine tools. The complete company now employs 140 people in 11 locations throughout Italy.

"We are extremely pleased to be able to add Delcam for SolidWorks to our range of software,” said Sauro Lamberti, Commercial Director at Nuovamacut Automation. "We believe that Nuovamacut and Delcam are united by the excellence of the products and services offered, and the quality of support provided to customers.”

"We are very happy to reach this agreement with such an important member of the SolidWorks community,” added Franco Calloni, General Manager of Delcam Italia. "We are confident that this partnership will be able to combine the strengths of both parties. Nuovamacut is a very important partner of SolidWorks in Italy so who could possibly be a better partner for us?”

Delcam for SolidWorks combines the benefits associated with Delcam’s PowerMILL and FeatureCAM CAM systems. It is based on Delcam’s proven machining algorithms that are already used by more than 35,000 customers around the world. These strategies ensure increased productivity, maximum tool life and immaculate surface finish, even when cutting the hardest, most challenging materials.

At the same time, Delcam for SolidWorks has the same strong focus on ease of use as FeatureCAM, including all of the knowledge-based automation that makes the software so consistent and reliable. Most importantly, Delcam for SolidWorks includes FeatureCAM’s Automatic Feature Recognition system which automatically extracts detailed feature information from the SolidWorks model. Once the features have been identified, Delcam for SolidWorks undertakes automatic selection of cutting tools, machining strategies, and feeds and speeds, to complete the programming operation.

Delcam for SolidWorks is fully integrated into the SolidWorks environment so that the program looks and behaves like SolidWorks. It offers full associativity so that any changes in the CAD model are reflected automatically in the toolpaths. However, this associativity is more intelligent than that offered in many other integrated CAM systems. Delcam for SolidWorks does not simply modify the existing toolpaths but also reviews the choice of cutting tools and machining strategies, and changes them if necessary.
