Programming Capabilities


Criterion’s Programming Software.

As part of the continued growth and commitment to quality, Criterion Tool/Criterion Instrument is now using MasterCam®  CAM Software.  The MasterCam® software (CAM = Computer Aided Manufacturing) is able to import to machine all major brands of CAD systems: Catia, ACIS, IGES, DXF, VDA-FS, Parasolids, SolidEdge Files & SolidWorks Files.   

The software, by means of animation, moves the part through the entire machining process to an image of the exact part. This capability allows for changes and adjustments to be made prior to cutting any material. The file when complete and approved is loaded into the machine. 

Criterion machinists, using MasterCam®, can now view parts from the file stage to the completed part stage. This capability translates to machining and producing parts with shorter production times and less scrap.

Cutting edge programming technology using the MasterCam® Software is moving Criterion forward in our "Vision of Excellence" and our continued commitment to Quality Parts… Made To Print and Delivered On Time!
