FeatureCAM will benefit Rentapen, because it will allow us to create more custom products for our customers.

Rentapen’s CNC Operator, John Dinon and CAD Drafter Kory Maier, attended a two day training course in New Berlin on the new 3D software, FeatureCAM. CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) is computer software that can be used for CNC machines.

“FeatureCAM will benefit Rentapen, because it will allow us to create more custom products for our customers,” said Kory Maier. CAM software greatly reduced the time required to program the CNC machine to produce a custom product.

FeatureCAM software will help Rentapen create custom products quicker which will make the weld fixtures that Rentapen builds for its customers be even more economical.

Rentapen has already greatly reduced the costs of weld fixtures for manufacturers through its line of standard yet versatile blocks, plates, clamp risers and shims. These RAPid Tooling Components™ are a part of Rentapen’s mission, which is to save manufacturers costs in their weld fixtures.

Kory Maier is a CAD drafter using Pro/E Wildfire 4.0 software for modeling and detailing parts and assemblies as part of Rentapen’s customers. “We thought Kory would be a good person to learn the software," said Susan Straley, Queen of Lean Machine Design, President at Rentapen Inc.

Maier joined Rentapen as an intern from WCTC the area’s technical college and was quick to learn. He started full time on January 9th as a CAD Drafter for Rentapen.

“His excitement and enthusiasm for learning and using the CAM software fits right into the culture of learning here at Rentapen,” said Straley.

“FeatureCAM, a feature-based CAM system, incorporates support for 64-bit computers, improved data exchange from a wider range of design software, the ability to use stock models and new strategies across the complete program, from turning to five-axis machining.” (News. Delcam Issue 3 2010)
