Delcam offers free HP workstations to buyers at IMTS

Published:

Delcam is offering a free HP Z200 workstation to all customers that order more than $10,000 of the company’s software on booth E-3922 at the IMTS exhibition to be held in Chicago from 13th to 17th September.  The offer applies across Delcam’s complete range of CAM programs; PowerMILL for high-speed and five-axis machining, FeatureCAM for feature-based production machining, PartMaker for turn-mill equipment and Swiss-type lathes and ArtCAM for artistic manufacturing applications such as signmaking, woodworking and engraving.

Organisations that already use Delcam’s CAM systems will receive the free workstation if they place orders above $10,000 for any of the company’s supporting software, including PowerSHAPE for data translation and tooling design, CopyCAD Pro for reverse engineering or PowerINSPECT for inspection of parts or tooling against 3D CAD data.

"Delcam is enjoying its most successful year to date and we wanted to give something back to our customers to thank them for their support,” explained Glenn McMinn, President of Delcam North America.  "We recognise that many North American manufacturers have experienced tough times during the economic downturn so we hope that our offer of free workstations will be a small help now that we are seeing the start of the recovery.”

Earlier this month, Delcam announced record six-month sales during the first half of this year.  In addition, industry analysts CIMdata recently confirmed that Delcam had completed ten years as the world’s leading specialist supplier of CAM software and services.

"Our latest generation of software takes advantage of the many enhancements in the latest HP workstations, such as 64-bit technology, multi-threading and background processing,” added Mr. McMinn.  "With their free workstation, we can be sure that our customers will be gaining the maximum benefit from our software, with faster calculation times and increased productivity.”

The free HP Z200 workstation will be supplied with Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit operating system, Intel CoreT i3-530 2.93 4MB CPU, NVIDIA Quadro FX 580 512 graphics card, 4GB DDR3-1333 ECC RAM, 160 GB SATA 7200 hard disk drive, keyboard and mouse, plus three-year parts and labour warranty.  Customers that order more than $15,000 of Delcam software at IMTS will receive an upgraded version with an Intel CoreT i7-870  processor with an 8MB cache and 8GB RAM.
