Hypertherm has announced the acquisition of the core assets of MTC Software, a developer of computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software used by the sheet and plate processing industry. MTC’s software product helps companies in the metal cutting industry optimize their cuts so that cut quality and productivity are improved while producing less scrap. The CAM software is used in conjunction with CNC systems for oxy-fuel, plasma, waterjet, laser and other cutting processes. Hypertherm does not plan any significant changes to MTC’s operations as a result of this purchase. MTC headquarters will remain in Lockport, New York and its 40 associates will continue to work at their current locations. MTC has offices and distribution partners throughout the world.
