Chicago, IL— Surfware Inc. is exhibiting its patented Step Reduction Milling (SRM) technology for automating the rough machining process at IMTS 2004, Sept. 8-15, at McCormick Place. Designed for mold machining applications, Surfcam reportedly is capable of reducing numerical control (NC) programming time by up to 90% and reducing rough machining time by up to 50%.

'SRM will greatly assist manufacturers in removing bulk material, which is one of the most time consuming aspects of machining,' says Glenn Coleman, Surfware’s product design VP. 'By creating one NC program to run multiple tools as a single programming process, SRM is a breakthrough in the rough milling of complex surfaces.'

Surfware manufactures Surfcam CAD/CAM software built for PC computers. Surfcam is designed for CNC programming of two-, three-, four-, and five-axis mills, lathes, wire EDM, laser, plasma, and water-jet machines. Machine shops worldwide use Surfcam for 2-D and 3-D mechanical design, surface modeling, reverse engineering, prototyping, mold-making, pattern-making and production machining.
