  • A Swiss-Type CAM Solution must be 100%, nothing less!

    MicroPoint Pro manufactures special machines to create electronics chips for computing and the cellular field.


    The parts produced in the CNC department are small and require a variety of different CNC machines such as: Milling up to 5 axes, Lathes, Wire-cut machines, Grinders, and more.

    The design in the company is based on SolidWorks, it is natural that the CAM was also chosen as SolidCAM, in 2010.

    In the last month, the company made a decision to enter a new field, which is Swiss-Type, to manufacture the small parts in large quantities in the factory, with no need to outsource them to subcontractors as before.

    Micro Point purchased a Swiss-type new machine Wivia V268.

    For a Swiss CAM solution, they obviously contacted us, as their longtime reliable SolidCAM partner, and also contacted Cimatron for their GibbsCAM solution.

    GibbsCAM software was first demonstrated, and the main impression the customer got from this demo, was the slander and putting down of the SolidCAM Swiss solution, and this actually created the complete opposite effect.

    In our SolidCAM demonstration done at their factory, we presented a perfect Swiss CAM solution, as the customer expected to receive, said nothing about the competing software and only emphasized the huge advantages of our SolidCAM Swiss-Type solution, with its amazing success worldwide.

    A customer who is unfamiliar with Swiss-Type technology, cannot work even with a CAM solution that is 80 to 90 percent, and the rest of the work has to be done by editing Gcode manually - the Swiss CAM solution
    must be 100%, including Multi-Channel Synchronization, Simulation, and a perfect Gcode program.

    The client obviously chose SolidCAM, immediately after the demonstration, and the important conclusions to be deduced from the above process are as follows:
    1. A complete 100% CAM solution is a must for real support of Swiss-Type CNCs.
    2. Indiscriminate lack of appreciation for competing software, is seen as non-objective, unreliable slander and can create the complete opposite effect.
    3. When a veteran SolidCAM customer, happy with our Milling, Turning and Mill-Turn solutions, with our seamless integration and associativity to SolidWorks and with our technical and postprocessor support, decides to introduce Swiss CNC machines, SolidCAM is the natural, perfect partner to provide him with the absolute best CAM solution.

    This process of existing SolidCAM customers, introducing Swiss CNC machines to enhance their manufacturing capabilities, is happening today at SolidCAM customers worldwide, at an increasing rate. The SolidCAM Swiss CAM solution is obviously the best obvious solution for them!
