A local company is getting some global attention.
CAMplete Solutions Inc., based in Kitchener, has partnered with the Haas F1 team.
The company specializes in 5-axis machining and machine simulation.
CAMplete says its TruePath program shows users how their programs will operate in the real world, meaning any problems can be corrected before a program is sent to a milling machine.
A 5-axis machine is also able to make much more complex moves in producing a part.
"Formula One is more than an exciting worldwide sporting event watched by millions, it is also one of the most technically challenging fields of engineering. Knowing the complex nature of the work done by Haas F1 Team, we are proud that our software solutions are providing the team the tools it needs to compete at the highest level." said CAMplete's Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Jeff Fritsch.
"It has been invaluable for helping us achieve successful, unattended machining of complex components made specifically for wind-tunnel testing on our 60-percent scale-model car." added Greg Syverson, CNC Shop Manager with the Haas F1 Team.
CAMplete was founded by three University of Waterloo graduates 20 years ago.
The company currently employees 16 people.
