Delcam’s South Korean joint venture, Hankook Delcam, held its 25th User Group Conference at the Hyundai Hotel in Kyeong-Ju on 26–27 September. The theme for this year’s meeting was ‘Big Jump Up’, a reference to the large increases in productivity being seen by companies adopting software and services from Hankook Delcam.

More than 1,300 attendees attended the event, which was the first major event to be held for Korean users since the acquisition of Delcam by Autodesk in February. There were presentations from Delcam president Clive Martell and Buzz Kross, senior vice-president for design, lifecycle and simulation products at Autodesk.

Martell said that the acquisition represented Delcam’s own ‘Big Jump Up’. ‘Autodesk brings to Delcam increased financial strength, unparalleled expertise in design, and a long history of making technology accessible to broad audiences. Through sharing our technology and expertise, this transaction will transform industries and improve how the world is designed and made,’ he said.

The significance of the deal was also emphasised by Kross, who said that the acquisition of Delcam is an important step in Autodesk’s continued expansion into manufacturing and fabrication and beyond our roots in design. He added that the company looks forward ‘to accelerating the development of a more comprehensive digital prototyping solution and delivering a better manufacturing experience to our customers.’

Delcam supplies software and services that help manufacturing companies to maximise their profitability by increasing productivity, improving quality and reducing lead times. The company is the world's largest specialist supplier of computer-aided machining software, with its PowerMILL, FeatureCAM, Partmaker and ArtCAM programs making up the most comprehensive range of CAM systems from any developer.
