Delcam Taiwan celebrates 20th anniversary with record user meeting
Delcam Taiwan celebrated its 20th anniversary in Taipei last month with a record attendance at its commemorative user meeting of over 240 delegates. Delcam Taiwan, one of Delcam’s earliest international Joint Ventures, was established in 1992 in partnership with Managing Director, Jack Lin, and two local businessmen, after several years of selling the company’s CADCAM software in the country through resellers.
In addition to the record number of customers, the anniversary meeting included presentations by special guests David Campbell, Director of the British Trade and Cultural Office in Taiwan, Clive Martell, Delcam Chief Executive, and Joe Zhou Delcam Greater China General Manager.
The meeting also included demonstrations of the latest software releases from Delcam’s development team. Highlights included the new Vortex strategy for high-speed area clearance, new direct modelling options in PowerSHAPE, and the latest release of the FeatureCAM feature-based machining program. A number of industry-specific solutions were also presented including advanced processing technology for composites, 3D engraving with ArtCAM, new methods for producing tyre moulds and press dies, automated electrode manufacture, and machining with robots.
The meeting concluded with presentations to the longest-serving members of the Delcam Taiwan staff and to customers that had completed the most impressive projects with Delcam’s software, including Feng Tay, Kim Sung Dies, Cheng Yang Product Design, Beijing Foxconn and Bamboola Taiwan.
Over its twenty-year history Delcam Taiwan has developed into the leading supplier of CAM software to the local manufacturing industry, with an unrivalled reputation for the quality of its technical support.
