Depo Frästechnik of Marienfeld, Germany, a manufacturer of high-quality milling machines and cutters, and NC Graphics (Cambridge) Ltd. of the UK, a software house specializing in CAM software for high-speed manufacture, have concluded a new agreement to continue joint development and exploitation of their CAM package, DepoCAM.

To further strengthen distribution, the brand names “machiningStrategist” and “NCG,” previously used in some sales territories, will be dropped in favor of “DepoCAM.” This will allow DepoCAM to become a globally recognized name. In each territory, one strong distributor will offer not only DepoCAM but also the benefits of the full range of advanced milling technology products pioneered by Depo.

Live cutting trials and benchmarks are available from Depo’s demonstration center at Leamington Spa, England. All DepoCAM installation, training and customer support will be provided from NC Graphics’ offices near Cambridge. An eight-person sales team will cover all regions of the UK offering the Depo products, consultancy and support to a combined user base of over 500 precision-engineering
