Hawk Ridge Systems, the Largest North American SolidWorks Reseller, Adds CAMWorks to CAD/CAM Portfolio

#1 SolidWorks Reseller of 3D CAD Design expands offerings with CAMWorks, #1 CAM Solution for SolidWorks

OAKLAND, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 20, 2012 — Hawk Ridge Systems, ( www.hawkridgesys.com) the #1 worldwide SolidWorks® reseller of 3D CAD Systems has partnered with Geometric Americas, a subsidiary of Geometric Limited, to resell CAMWorks®, the first SolidWorks CAM solution that provides state-of-the art machining capabilities seamlessly integrated with SolidWorks.

Launched in 1997, CAMWorks is the leading solids-based CNC programming solution designed to operate in SolidWorks, and the first to offer parametric, knowledge-based machining capabilities with full tool path associativity to the solid model. The tight integration enables storage of CAM data within the solid model part file reducing file management and eliminating the need for time consuming solid model file transfers between CAD and CAM packages. In addition, the CNC programming menus are accessible within the familiar SolidWorks interface, making CAMWorks one of the easiest tools to learn and use. The first Certified Gold Product Partner, CAMWorks runs within SolidWorks or as part of a stand-alone cost-effective CAD/CAM package. The latest innovations in CAMWorks, together with SolidWorks excellence in 3D design, permit manufacturers to engineer, design and build better products faster and more accurately.

As Dale Ford, P. Eng and Chief Operating Officer of Hawk Ridge Systems says, “Our partnership with Geometric, and the opportunity to sell and support CAMWorks is a natural extension of our ability to provide innovative and comprehensive product realization solutions to our customers. We have been working with CAMWorks for years, and our users are extremely pleased with the integration with SolidWorks. After all, it was written expressly for SolidWorks and has the same track record for advanced functionality and ease-of-use that SolidWorks has. By pairing SolidWorks and CAMWorks, we bring the best of CAD/CAM solutions to the market. Hawk Ridge Systems will also be providing one of the largest teams of Certified CAMWorks Support Technicians in North America.”

CAMWorks takes away the drudgery of CNC programming with intelligent machining through automation. It eliminates hours of complex programming through Automatic Feature Recognition (AFR) that recognizes prismatic machinable features, while the TechDB™ (Technology Database) defines machining operations to automatically generate accurate tool paths at the click of a button. CAMWorks machining modules include: 2 ½ Axis Mill, 3 Axis Mill, 4/5 Axis Simultaneous Machining, Turing, Mill-Turn, and Wire EDM.

“CAMWorks is one of the fastest growing CAM products in the market and we are thrilled to partner with Hawk Ridge Systems to provide the same great value to an even larger user base,” says Sameer Kondejkar, Sr. Director and Business Unit Head of GTS, Geometric. He adds, “Geometric and Hawk Ridge Systems share the same vision and we are confident that the combined value proposition of an integrated CAD/CAM solution will contribute immensely in the success of our customers.”
