CADCAMation KMR SA
Founded by the Fidia Spa group in 1993, CADCAMation KMR SA is recognized today as one of the leading Swiss knowledge-intensive SME in manufacturing. Its leaders have been participating to the birth of some pioneering CAD/CAM and reverse engineering modelers as well as their implementation in several key automotive and aerospace industries, such as BMW in Germany and Aerospatiale in France. Currently, its core competences are focused on the ranges of the PLM/CAD/CAM technologies and their integration with manufacturing processes. The company used to participate to European Research projects and is particularly distinguished as a SME which has been able to initiate many research projects in manufacturing such as OPTIMAL, HIQU, FAME, STEP-NC. CADCAMation was also the first company to launch the concept of on-line generation of the tool path correctly on the NC controller for milling and for EDM wire cutting. In 1997, CADCAMation separated from Fidia and extended its activities to become a full integrator of advanced CAD-CAM-NC systems. It acts as an Autodesk VAR to support manufacturing SMEs in implementing advanced IT solution on a daily basis.
Within FoFdation, CADCAMation was sought after by the consortium to be the technical coordinator for the work-packages, thus ensuring their best integration towards a coherent manufacturing solution. CADCAMation also focuses on:
- The delivery of a STEP-NC compliant controller “open, scalable, and versatile and based on open-source software”.
- The innoLAB infrastructure, which is expected to be the FOFdation living laboratory, based on a joint effort between industry and academy partners.
