CAMARILLO, CA, November 11-Surfware Inc., developer of computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) software, has received a patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), patent number 7451013 for its Engagement Milling technology.

“This patent protects the intellectual property and proprietary technology that we have developed over many years,” says Stephen Diehl, president and CEO of Surfware. “The mathematics and science behind Engagement Milling are revolutionary, and we have incorporated that technology into our Surfcam product line as TrueMill. The patent provides strong protection for current and future versions of TrueMill.”

The principal co-inventors of the Engagement Milling technology are Surfware co-founder Alan Diehl and mathematician Robert (Pat) Patterson.

“Because TrueMill is useful to a wide spectrum of industries,” says Diehl, “Surfware looks forward to providing custom and turnkey solutions, as well as partnering with vendors of complementary technologies.”
