During a visit to MACH 2012 (NEC, April 16-20) business secretary Vince Cable expressed his pleasure at being able to meet, as he described, "so many of the outstanding engineers and companies" at the event. "Whether exhibiting the latest technology or looking to apply it to dynamic businesses, the people here demonstrate the UK’s extraordinary capacity to create, engineer and manufacture world class products," he said.

A successful MACH for Delcam was capped on Thursday with a visit from Dr Cable, who visited the Delcam stand as part of his tour of the exhibition. The company reported receiving orders for its software valued at over £200,000 by the time of Dr Cable’s visit and was hoping to top £250,000 by the end of the show. Companies placing orders included Future Advanced Manufacturing, AKD Engineering, Hampshire Insulations, DPS Designs, PPA Group, MJB Precision and Formaplex.
The sales were spread over across Delcam’s complete range of CAM programs; PowerMILL for high-speed and five-axis machining, a PowerMILL robot interface, FeatureCAM for feature-based production machining, PartMaker for Swiss-type lathes and ArtCAM for artistic manufacturing applications. The total also included orders for PowerSHAPE (data translation, reverse engineering and tooling design), and PowerINSPECT (inspection of parts or tooling against 3D CAD data).
