The Service and Support
Our experienced team of technicians offers a full range of services. If you are considering migrating from UNIX to Windows,
our support staff can design and implement migration program to make the transition completely trouble-free. A toll-free helpline
is available to answer questions and resolve problems in near real-time. E-mail support is also an integral part of our total support program.
Experience Where It Counts
Our experienced product development team includes developers who originally created the
technology behind Linkage and Geometry Editor as well as CIM CAD and CIM CAM. From pioneering
UNIX solutions in the early 1980s to today’s modern solutions for the latest Windows-based platforms,
our team is uniquely qualified to continue to deliver the high productivity solutions our customers require.
The closing of CIMLINC Inc. has left former CIMLINC customers with great concerns
about maintaining their CIMLINC application software and data files. Are you a user of Linkage? Geometry Editor?
CIMCAD or CIMCAM? Did you know that the node-locked license scheme used by CIMLINC applications
means that when the UNIX workstation you depend on eventually dies, your software licenses
die with it? In short, that system and application software is gone. Forever. Just keeping
the old hardware running can be an expensive and aggravating proposition. Replacing your
CIMLINC software means incurring lost productivity while you retrain. In fact, you may never
become as productive as you were with your old CIMLINC software. And what about your data files?
Your company's valuable intellectual property is held hostage in data files that you will not be
able to retrieve when your software fails. Your company just can't afford to take the risk of
running on unsupported software.
The way forward....
AMT Software used to be the Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMT) division of CIMLINC. While CIMLINC
pursued their Linkage document creation and management technology, AMT was chartered with enhancing and
maintaining applications software products for the general CAD/CAM market (CIM CAD and CIM CAM) as well as
the specialized needs of the mold and die market with the ToolDesigner and ToolMaker product line. Although
CIMLINC closed, AMT Software continued on to further develop the CAD/CAM/Mold
& Die product portfolio. If you are presently using Linkage, Geometry Editor, CIM CAD or CIM CAM from CIMLINC, you can
easily migrate to these software solutions from AMT Software:
Derived from the same base code as Linkage, InfoManager assembles forms from embedded intelligent formulas and
macros to extract and format external text and graphic data files. The same powerful ScriptLINK programming language
is at the heart of InfoManager and ExpertCAD. This means that the applications you have that were built with
Linkage may run with minimal or no changes whatsoever. Document data files generated by Linkage are 100% compatible
with InfoManager. Design and manufacturing cannot function without correct documentation. That’s why InfoManager
has long been a part of our AMT suite of products. Simple to use yet powerful, InfoManager removes the
drudgery of mundane everyday tasks such as creating setup sheets, building parts list or completing ECNs.
InfoManager is available on popular UNIX platforms. If you are currently using Linkage Developer Edition,
Integrator Edition or User Edition then InfoManager may very well be the perfect replacement.
If you need to preserve your legacy Linkage documents, we offer as translation service that will convert your
Linkage documents to Adobe PDF format.
The CIMLINC Geometry Editor (LK4000) as well as CIM CAD are direct descendants of ExpertCAD. Because these
former CIMLINC applications were derived from the same source tree, data files are 100% compatible with ExpertCAD.
No translator necessary! You custom macros and scripts that make you so productive are also 100% compatible.
Since parting ways with CIMLINC, our focus on CAD/CAM naturally led to the many enhancements to ExpertCAD.
In short, this ExpertCAD may be the perfect upgrade to your CIMLINC software. ExpertCAD is available on
popular UNIX platforms as well as Windows.
ExpertCAM is production oriented 2D NC programming system that
traces its heritage back to CIMLINC's CIM CAM. Just like ExpertCAD
and InfoManager, all your data files, macros and customization as
well as post processors are 100% compatible with ExpertCAM. The investment you've made over the years to automate and refine your N
C programming doesn't need not go down the drain. Migrating to ExpertCAM means you can continue to crank out
NC programs to keep your machine tools humming. Just like ExpertCAD, you choose your hardware platform from
UNIX systems from Sun and HP to Windows-based PCs. More choice, more power and the security of knowing
your software is supported.
