Case Studies

Precinov: Reduces cost with high-efficiency toolpaths

Precinov produces complex parts for optomechanics, fiber optics, and lasers with CNC milling and turn-mill machines. Using FeatureCAM and Vortex toolpaths, Precinov reduces programming time, tool wear, and cost for its range of machines.

“We chose FeatureCAM for a number of reasons. It works on all of our machines and it’s easy to learn.” —Vincent Lavoie, Programmer
