Delcam, a worldwide supplier of specialist machining software and associated services, has acquired Engineering Geometry Systems, developer of the FeatureCAM CADCAM software line, introduced in 1995. FeatureCAM is a Windows- and feature-based milling system. The acquisition will compliment Delcam's products for toolmaking and other complex manufacturing operations, allowing them to provide products to address the worldwide need for CAM at various price points. FeatureCAM will continue as an independent product line, developed in the U.S. and marketed worldwide. "The only immediate difference existing FeatureCAM users will see is a change in the company name to Delcam USA," says Delcam's Managing Director, Hugh Humphreys.

Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
