Continuing to expand its sales and support resources, CAD/CAM developer Vero Software has added a new applications engineer to its growing Alphacam team.

Criss Reid, an experienced CNC programmer and applications engineer who hails from the town of Bradford, England, joined the Alphacam team in its United States offices earlier this month.

Reid spent seven years working as a CNC programmer for stone-working machine tools before being hired as an applications engineer for CMS Industries, UK Division, a designer and manufacturer of machining centers. Over the course of about 14 years with CMS, he filled both applications and sales roles, and relocated to the United States.

“I was employed as an applications engineer for stone and glass installing, and the training of all glass and stone customers, in the United Kingdom and all of Europe,” says Reid of his previous work experience.  “I trained on many different machines and machine controls; I had some of the biggest and most complex machines at my disposal.”

Reid was introduced to Alphacam — a solution for cutting wood, stone, and metal — during his tenure at CMS, and began using it for all of his 5-axis stone applications.
