Led by Technical Director Samuel Vance, the companies design office deployed the latest hyperMILL® CAD-S Solid software that integrates 3D and 5-axis milling and turning strategies in a simple user interface.

With the further introduction of 6&7 axis machining capability into their portfolio, Ad-Vance Engineering are now able to significantly reduce cycle times and further increase productivity.
