Orpington, UK: The future CAM software growth potential is predicted to be 17 percent this year and 29 percent over the next three to five years, according to results of the Worldwide CAD Trends 2016 Survey by research specialist The Business Advantage Group.

Over the years, manufacturing processes have progressed steadily with the advent of technology. From an initial reliance on physical labour, manufacturers today are increasingly turning to more sophisticated means in their pursuit for efficiency and better results.

Kyeong-Ju, South Korea: Delcam’s South Korean joint venture, Hankook Delcam, held its 25th user group conference at the Hyundai Hotel in Kyeong-Ju recently. With over 1,300 attendees at the event, it set a new record number for the event, reinforcing its position as the world’s largest meeting for CAM users.

The meeting was the first major event to be held for South Korean users since the acquisition of Delcam by Autodesk in February. The audience was, therefore, especially interested in the presentations from Delcam president, Clive Martell, and Buzz Kross, senior VP for Design, Lifecycle and Simulation products at Autodesk.

Mr Martell said that the acquisition represented the company’s own ‘Big Jump Up’.  “Autodesk brings to Delcam increased financial strength, unparalleled expertise in design, and a long history of making technology accessible to broad audiences. Through sharing our technology and expertise, this transaction will transform industries and improve how the world is designed and made,” he commented.

The meeting also featured the awards ceremony for the winners of the South Korean section of 3rd Global CAM Skill Competition, who have qualified for the World Championships to be held at the company’s headquarters in Birmingham early next year. This competition, which was open to local high school and college students, is held each year as part of Hankook Delcam’s support for the development of CAM software skills to meet the needs of the country’s manufacturing industry.
