Fikus Deutschland popularizes wire EDM CAD/CAM in Germany with its shop-floor solutions
Fikus Deutschland offers a complete package of CAD/CAM services in the German market, from Fikus software to training and process consulting.
What has become a standard in the German milling market - CAD/CAM software solutions for efficient and precise machining of workpieces - remains a niche product in the wire EDM field. Now, Fikus Deutschland has entered this niche with Fikus and its FikusSt, FikusPlus and FikusWorks products.
Fikus Deutschland, Metalcam's business partner, supports Fikus customers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland from Salzkotten (Paderborn district) with sophisticated software, but also with advice and training on the safe operation of these programs to achieve maximum efficiency and productivity in wire EDM. Consulting and training on the most efficient processes complete the range of services offered by Fikus Deutschland.
The head of Fikus Deutschland is Reinhold Deppe, an experienced toolmaker and mechanical engineer with many years of experience in the fields of manufacturing, milling and wire EDM. In the course of his professional activity, he has repeatedly attended training courses in the field of CAD/CAM and knows the challenges of the industry from all perspectives. In addition, he has been deeply familiar with Metalcam products for many years.
"Metalcam is always up to date, always aware of user requirements and machine manufacturers' innovations. All this practical experience is transferred to the development of the Fikus software", says Deppe. "At some point, a good opportunity arose to start my own business in CAD/CAM. Now we serve customers in the DACH region with Fikus Visualcam, from small two-man shops to medium-sized and large companies, the range of our customers is very diverse," reports the head of Fikus Deutschland.
Among its customers are tool and mold makers companies as well as precision engineering, electrical industry, medical technology, mechanical engineering and, last but not least, from the automotive industry.
