Rochester Colonial Can Do It All With Mastercam 


The capabilities of Mastercam
Just one example of the complex jobs Rochester Colonial is capable of doing with Mastercam.

Rochester Colonial, an industry leader since 1947, has sold and installed more windows, doors, and related products than any other company in the region. The company consists of over 100 full-time employees, many of whom are certified by leading industry organizations like the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) and the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI). With this much experience in-house, it is no wonder why they are known as "The window and door experts."

The company manufactures the high-end windows and doors they sell in their facilities located on Lyell Avenue and Jefferson Road. Up until recently, the company was only able to perform job requests that required basic machining. This was because their old software was not capable of five-axis interpolation. The lack of machining capability is what pushed Rochester Colonial to look into new software in December of 2008. The power of Mastercam plus OptiPro's local support and training made it an easy choice.

"In the router/wood working industry, there are really only two major software choices. The price points between the two were very similar but what really made us decide to go with Mastercam is OptiPro being right down the street whenever we need any support," said Ken Dobson, CNC Programmer at Rochester Colonial.

As Ken and his team became accustomed to Mastercam, they discovered just how powerful the software can be. Says Ken Dobson, "I'm finding the more I work in Mastercam, there's nothing I can't do. I can control almost anything because of its versatility."

Mastercam has opened the doors (no pun intended) to new opportunities for Rochester Colonial. The picture above is an example of the types of jobs the company can now take on. The picture shows a curved-in plane sliding door unit fitted with European lift and slide hardware. The unit's overall diameter is roughly 22 feet. There are 16 individual full lite door slabs that are each 2.5" thick. 12 of the 16 doors are operable and, when all are closed, will form a 360 degree arc that will surround a hot tub. The entire unit is solid Honduran Mahogany, except the threshold which is teak.

This project is unique and complex, to say the least, but it's only one example of the type of projects Rochester Colonial are capable of completing, now that Mastercam has been incorporated into their manufacturing process. "We have the capability to do difficult jobs now because of Mastercam," says Ken.

Master3DGage Webinars are back!


Due to the popularity of the Master3DGage webinars in 2010, Verisurf Software, Inc. has announced they will again be hosting the webinar titled "Increasing Productivity with Rapid Shop Floor Inspection."

Wed, Feb 16, 2011 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST
