Delcam overtakes PTC in CAM sales

Delcam is pleased to announce that the company overtook PTC in CAM sales during 2008 according to the latest NC Software and Related Services Market report from leading analysts CIMdata. After achieving record sales over the year, the company moved into third place by revenue behind Dassault and Siemens, the first change in the top three companies for more than five years.

The report also confirmed Delcam's position as the world's leading specialist supplier of CAM software and services, with an increased lead over the second-placed Planit Group. Delcam was also shown to have the largest development team in the industry, with 140 people working on the company's software.

An important reason for Delcam's success is the company's diversity, both in the markets it supplies and its geographic coverage. Delcam is the only CAM specialist to appear in the top five suppliers to all of the geographic regions (America, Asia and Europe) and key industries (mould, tool and die; automotive and aerospace) analysed in the report. The move up to third place in the aerospace industry was especially pleasing, as this was a sector where Delcam had little market share as recently as five years ago.

The increased popularity of Delcam software is partly due to the new emphasis on efficiency and productivity in companies that previously would have simply used the CAM system that came with their choice of CAD software. "With the level of global competition now increasing, those companies are looking at their choice of CAM system much more carefully,” claimed Delcam Marketing Manager, Peter Dickin. "This closer examination often shows that Delcam's software can give significant savings, both in programming times and in machining times, as well as improving the quality of the finished part.”

Mr. Dickin also emphasised the breadth of the Delcam software range as a key part of the company's success. "Together, our complete set of CAM programs, PowerMILL, FeatureCAM, PartMaker and ArtCAM, comprises the world's most comprehensive collection of machining software, giving us an unrivalled ability to provide solutions to all of a company's programming needs,” he added.

"This benefits larger companies, which can meet all of their CAM needs from a single supplier. At the same time, smaller companies can choose exactly the system they need for their particular combination of products and machine tools, rather than having to accept a compromise solution from a CAM supplier with a more limited range of software.”
