Software runs the gamut of every conceivable type at the 2017 Woodworking Machinery & Supply Expo, with applications very specific to their purpose.
For example, two companies - Compass Software and first time exhibitor, Staircon, offer programs uniquely designed to create staircases of solid wood. Mozaik is showing its recently debuted CNC Operator. Eurosoft is showing its Framework, for parametric modeling of cabinetry and casegoods. Web-Cab offers Production Coach, a trending ERP program for managing overall production operations.
With so many software solutions represented at WMS, program planners created a conference session just to focus on cabinetry design. The session will look at the nexus between the design of kitchen cabinets, and their production. And overall industry trend is to move further up the purchase stream, to link the initial stages of design at point of sale, through estimating, final drawing, cut list generation, and plant component tracking through barcodes generation and even shipping labels.
Presenters include Peter Mate, owner of Planit Canada, and Kenny Belfatto, national sales manager for CIM-Tech.
