Your partner for CAD/CAM Software since 1986

History

WiCAM Germany

In 1984 when Harald Wilkesmann earned money for his mechanical engineering studies during a night shift on a Behrens CNC punching machine , he was annoyed by the time-consuming calculation and entering of coordinates. Fascinated by the possibilities of CNC technology and the emerging digitization in the industry, he began to develop algorithms that generated NC texts for the machines from order lists and CAD data.

It quickly became known that there was someone who was able to run entire machine plants – error free and with lightning speed – and more and more companies were looking for exactly such solutions.

In 1986 Mr. Wilkesmann (meanwhile Dipl. Ing. graduated) founded the WiCAM GmbH Technical Software, programmed the machines of his customers and wrote an independent CAM system, which could control the CNC machines of different manufacturers with data from different sources .

The first versions were able to handle 4000 different variables, so he named his project ‘Parametric NC 4000’ or ‘PN4000’ for short. Driven by ambition and the pursuit of perfection, it took him six years to introduce his program to the industry.
In 1994, the PN4000 released the world’s first 3D-based universal CADCAM system. The internal growth and expansion worldwide began.

Today WiCAM is, after decades of continuous evolution, the technology leader in high-efficiency automation software for CADCAM and industrial nesting.
