Record Sales and Leads for Cabinet Vision and Alphacam at W18
“How can your products make my business more productive and efficient?” “How can your software tools help me to fully exploit my significant investment in CNC equipment?” Those were just two of the questions woodworking companies asked Vero Software at the W18 trade fair.
And casework manufacturers wanted to know how to bridge the gap between design and manufacture, which have been separate from each other in the past.
With Alphacam’s powerful automation and nesting functionality answering those first two questions, and Cabinet Vision’s Screen-To-Machine module, closes the loop between sales and manufacture for casework manufacturers. Visitors to the show also saw first-hand the software in action, driving a variety of CNC machine tools on machinery suppliers’ stands.
During the four days of W18, Cabinet Vision and Alphacam between them closed many sales, and gained hundreds of strong leads, many of which were looking to invest in the software in the short to medium term.
Michael Pettit, EMEA Sales Manager for Cabinet Vision and Alphacam, says visitors were particularly interested in Alphacam’s new nesting engine, unveiled in the 2018 R2 release, which tests show delivers significant improvements in material yield. “Using proprietary technology to deliver ‘best in class’ geometry and toolpath optimisation, the nesting engine provides faster calculation times, along with improved feedback and graphics.
“Customers are also moving away from having to program individual parts for their CNC production, and were impressed when they saw demonstrations showing how Alphacam’s latest automation tools in Automation Manager can reduce programming time by several days each week.”
Cabinet Vision demonstrated its latest release, which includes all-new photo rendering technology that provides a considerable enhancement in rendering capabilities from previous versions. “It now gives manufacturers almost photo-like images which they can use as a sales tool to show their customers exactly what the products will look like in situ.”
And Cabinet Vision also partners with a number of machine tool suppliers, providing a total machine and software solution.
In conclusion, Michael Pettit says: “W18 gave us the opportunity to meet new customers and gain significant leads. Also, it was good to catch up with existing customers, many who are our customers for many years and hear their stories about how our market-leading solutions for the woodworking industry have driven productivity and profitability in their businesses.”
