New Missler Software development centre in Switzerland


Missler Software, an international CAD/CAM software developer of integrated CAD/CAM solutions, recently opened a new development centre in Delémont, in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. The new subsidiary is called Missler Software Switzerland and will be in charge of the development of CAD/CAM solutions for the Swiss turn market, an activity which Missler Software believes to be complementary to its core CAD/CAM TopSolid range. 4 employees will be based in the new offices. The creation of Missler Software Switzerland also reinforces Missler Software's partnership with company JINFO, who will distribute the TopSolid product range in the French-speaking region of Switzerland.

Marc Choquin, French Sales Director for Missler Software, explains the increasing necessity for manufacturers to have a high-performance programming and simulation program enabling them to carry out preparatory machining operations in the background while other machining operations happen in parallel. « Swiss turn machines are increasingly complex, notably in the setting up, tuning and program-optimisation stages which all take place simultaneously. Being aware of and having studied the limits of standard CAM packages to program this type of machine, Missler Software has decided to invest in the swiss turn market to meet the complex needs present. This project also complements our mill-turn offer where TopSolid'Cam is a leader in the programming of complex machines."

The first stage of the swiss turn project has been the creation of Missler Software Switzerland in the French-speaking region of Switzerland, which is considered the heartland of Swiss turning development. Part of the SylvieExprt (3D Cam software for the Swiss turn market) development team was recruited by Missler Software to offer its expertise in this highly specialized activity.

According to Christian Arber, CEO of Missler Software « The creation of a development centre in Switzerland confirms Missler Software's dedication to the production market and clearly indicates the company's desire to be the leader on this market. Our decision to continue heavily investing in development at this time shows our confidence in the future of the TopSolid CAD/CAM product range and in our development potential."
