There was quite a flutter in the industrial software world a little while back. The acquisition of Delcam and its brands, which include PartMaker by Autodesk, inserts the maker of AutoCAD deep into the CAM marketplace.
Most PM readers are familiar with PartMaker software and its well established presence in Swiss-type and multitasking precision machined parts manufacturing. Likewise, most readers also know something about Delcam’s suite of metalworking products.
