Sandvik Coromant has signed an agreement to acquire Canadian company ICAM Technologies Corp., a developer of software that translates CAM data into optimized coding for guiding CNC machining operations.
Montréal-based ICAM sells to major aerospace and defence, general engineering, and automotive companies. The company will be reported in Sandvik Coromant, a division within Sandvik Manufacturing and Machining Solutions.
ICAM’s software combines post-processing, machine simulation, and tool-path optimization into solutions that reduce programming and part machining time, and optimize customer workflows by enabling users to go from their CAM system to verified and optimized coding (G-code) in a single one step. ICAM’s offering is complementary with the verification and optimization technology of CGTech, a global leader in software for numerical control (NC/CNC) simulation, verification and optimization, which is also owned by Sandvik and reports into Sandvik Coromant.
“I am really happy to welcome ICAM to Sandvik Coromant and I look forward to us working together and strengthening our offer to our customers,” said Sandvik Coromant president Helen Blomqvist. “ICAM’s ability to deliver code reliability across all major CAD/CAM systems is well-aligned with our goal to serve all our customers in the best way possible, with a CAD/CAM-neutral portfolio.”
ICAM was founded in 1971 and has 27 employees. The transaction is expected to close during the fourth quarter of 2021 and is subject to customary closing conditions.
