Delcam North America expands support teamClick image to enlargeCory Barrette, Michael Belanger and Jonathon Artiss have joined Delcam North America's post-sales support team, based in Windsor, ON.

 The appointments continue the growth of Delcam's North American staff in response to the increasing demand for the company's CADCAM software.

Before joining Delcam, Barrette had spent more than 18 years in the tool and mould industry in a variety of companies in the Windsor area. He gained experience in using a variety of CAM systems, including Delcam's PowerMILL and FeatureCAM software, to program many different types of machine tool.

Since completing his apprenticeship in 2001, Belanger has worked as a CNC machinist in two of the largest toolmaking companies in Ontario, Active Burgess Mold & Design and Integrity Tool & Mold. For most of that time, he was using PowerMILL for five axis and high speed machining.  In addition to his programming responsibilities, he also assisted in the training of new employees.

Artiss began his career with a manufacturer of custom furniture. He moved into toolmaking in 2005, becoming skilled at creating 3D models from prints and programming the manufacture of molds, slides and inserts. He gained his formal qualification as a machinist from St. Clair College in 2010.
