UcamX + parallel processing = CAM at its best

UcamX v2016.01 boosts CAM engineering performance to new levels with new PP+ capabilities that deliver extra power and functionality together with added ease of use.
Gent, Belgium – February 22th, 2016 – Ucamco is delighted to announce the release of UcamX, v2016.01, the latest version of its ultra – powerful all-in-one CAM software suite for the global PCB manufacturing industry. At the core of the UcamX platform is PP+, Ucamco’s Parallel Processing feature. This works with state-of-the-art UcamX multicore and 64bit workstation technology to deliver unsurpassed functionality, speed and capabilities to the CAM engineer’s fingertips, enabling tasks to be completed in a fraction of the time needed by other CAM systems.

Now, UcamX pushes the envelope still further with added PP+ power, simplifying the CAM department’s tasks while adding sophisticated functionality that boosts CAM performance to new heights.
With the Backgrounded Outputs feature, for example, valuable CAM seat time can be saved by running time-consuming CAD data output tasks out of sight in the background while allowing CAM engineers to focus fully on the interactive tasks that demand their full and constant attention. The Parallelized Image Compare is yet another one to go on the list of parallelized UcamX functions: this exciting new

feature automatically splits large data sets into smaller tiles and compares them on different logical processors using parallel processing.

And it is clever enough to do this only when it makes sense performance-wise…

Ucamco is so eager to let you discover the power of its newly expanded PP+ capabilities that it is giving CAM departments free access to a PP8 version

of their UcamX license on a trial basis, so that you can experience at first hand just how to get the very best out of their multi-cored hardware solutions.
As well as powerful new PP+ functionality, UcamX v2016.01 comes with a raft of new features designed to improve CAM performance and throughput. Its range goes from

new optimized workspace defaults that speed up the program’s startup and make switching between workspaces faster and easier, to supporting the latest version ODB++ version 8 data sets, and many things in between. Check out the numerous

enhancements to the existing UcamX features, keeping UcamX fully at the forefront in CAM software solutions.
