GTMA suppliers of software products

and services for manufacturing supply

chains include many companies who are

world class and world reknowned.

From Delcam, the world's largest supplier

of computer-aided-manufacturing (CAM)

software and associated services, to smaller companies serving niche markets, GTMA

provides a one-stop source for software to

help companies at all levels of the supply

chains gain added value.

As well as systems and products to aid

shopfloor productivity, quality and profitability there

are also a range of business support software

systems to make planning

more efficient - packages such as job management and scheduling software

and even

suppliers who will evaluate the software you

already have.

Virtually every manufacturing sector is covered

from aerospace and automotive to rail,

marine, energy and medical.

Many of the products are embedded in

manufacturing culture - from Delcam's

PowerMill, PowerMILL, ArtCAM,

FeatureCAM and PartMaker, which together

comprise the world's most comprehensive

collection of CAM systems from a single

developer, through to Edgecam, the market

leading CAM software solution for NC part

programme.

Edgecam, part of the Vero Software Group,

offers unparalleled ease of use and sophisticated toolpath and is claimed to be the only

CAM system you will need for milling, turning and mill-turn

machining. Return on

investment is crucial and Edgecam's

Workflow product to reduce programming

time is a market leader specifically designed

to reduce costs, improve quality and shorten lead times.

This focus on costs, quality and lead times

is common among the GTMA suppliers.

Indysoft, a specialist supplier of gauge

management, instrument calibration and

tool management software tools (recognised by many as the best 'commercially

available' enterprise-wide range of its kind)

stresses the very fast return on investment

on its website.

GLOBAL SALES

With over 20 years of continuous development and thousands of global licence sales,

it really understands industry needs - and

there is no restriction on what equipment

you can store, calibrate or service with its

software: Electrical, Force, Pressure,

Torque, Dimensional, Temperature etc.

Another global leader is CGTech, the developer of VERICUT,

the world's leading CNC

Simulation and Verification software product. VERICUT protects

expensive CNC

machine tools against potentially disastrous

crashes and collisions and allows users to

create detailed software models of all types

of CNC Machine Tools to create a virtual

machining environment.

All types of CNC Machine Tools are

supported, including 5 axis Milling Machines

and Machining Centres and combination

Mill/Turn centres.

Niche sector suppliers include Verisurf

Software, a dimensional metrology software

development company committed to delivering advanced computer-aided

inspection,

reverse engineering and laser projection

solutions.

Its software helps manufacturers produce

higher quality products in less time and at a

lower cost with automated model-based

processes that drive all measurement

devices.

The aerospace sector is one of many benefiting: Coast Composites uses Verisurf

Software and Laser Trackers to automate

the building of Airbus composite wing tools

within specified tolerances.

The software helps the tool builder quickly

determine tool surfaces that are within

specification or require additional benching.

The list of specialisations goes on with

another GTMA supplier providing computeraided engineering software

and services to

the metal forming and plastic injection

moulding industries which cost-effectively

offer the latest simulation technologies for

manufacturers and product designers.

The company delivers solutions for cost

estimating, part design feasibility and manufacturing simulation.
