Harvey Performance Company Announces Partnership with Mastercam

ROWLEY, MA (November 30, 2018) – Harvey Performance Company is proud to announce a new partnership with CNC Software Inc., the developers of Mastercam software. Mastercam is a CAD/CAM software for 2-through-5-axis routing, milling and turning, 2-and-4-axis wire EDM, 2D and 3D design, surface and solid modeling, and Swiss machining

This new partnership between Harvey Performance Company’s leading cutting tool brands, Harvey Tool and Helical Solutions, and Mastercam will allow both companies to work together to share ideas that shape the future of manufacturing from both a tooling and CAM perspective. A great example of this collaboration is the new Deburring toolpath available in Mastercam 2019. Harvey Tool has many deburring tools which have been used in various tests of this new toolpath. These opportunities have given the Harvey Performance Company team additional insight into the performance of the tooling and allowed the Mastercam team to optimize this new toolpath for their users.

“I think the major benefit from both partners is bringing CAM software and cutting tool innovation closer together to generate a better user experience from the moment you start programming until the time you hit the Cycle Start button and start making chips,” says Jeff Rauseo, Senior Marketing Specialist – Strategic Partnerships & Applications, Harvey Performance Company.
