Camtek GmbH in Weinstadt near Stuttgart was established in 1993 as
distributor of the CAD/CAM system OPTICAM Classic. From the outset, Camtek did not only distribute the system,
but also develop numerous modules, additional functions, special adaptations and intelligent postprocessors.
In 2009, Camtek GmbH acquires the rights to the source code of the CAD/CAM system OPTICAM Classic
in order to be able to develop it further independently. As a further milestone in the Camtek success story,
the first complete in-house development was presented in the same year. With its CAD/CAM system OPTICAM,
Camtek offers a fully integrated solution for the programming of wire EDM machines for the CAD systems SolidWorks,
hyperCAD-S and Siemens NX.
Feedback from our customers and the close cooperation with leading machine and control manufacturers is
especially important to us since they allow us to continuously develop the functionality of both systems.
In cooperation with our national and international sales partners and a creative team of 40 employees in
the fields of system development, consultancy, sales and system training as well as our telephone
and internet support, we also offer special solutions and the integration of our software into already
existing network and SAP/ERP systems for our customers.
Our aim is to continuously develop our systems in accordance with a very good price-performance ratio –
in the best interests of our customers. Another aim is the realization of a healthy combination of
many years of experience and the anticipation of new trends and developments.
