Westlake Village, California, USA - Surfware, Inc., makers of SURFCAM CAD/CAM systems, and MachineWorks, Ltd., supplier of simulation and verification solutions, announced the formation of a strategic agreement that combines SURFCAM's computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) functionality with MachineWorks™ tool path verification and machine tool simulation technology. The new MachineWorks verification will be fully integrated within the SURFCAM manufacturing product line, providing its customers with a complete set of tools to proof their tool path motion.

Through superior visualization and analysis capabilities, MachineWorks™ technology helps ensure that the part program in question will accurately and efficiently machine the as-designed part. "Accurate information to assist in the cut analysis is vital to toolpath optimization", comments David Manley, Managing Director of MachineWorks. "SURFCAM™ has a great name in the market and we are pleased that Surfware recognizes the strength of our verification solution".

MachineWorks technology will be available in the next release of SURFCAM, slated to release July 2004. Joe McChesney, Surfware Product Manager says, "The integration of MachineWorks™ technology provides our customers with industry leading verification and machine tool kinematics. SURFCAM's already powerful machining capabilities will benefit further from the broad range of simulation tools providing a powerful programming solution."
