Company Profile

CGS North America Inc., is a wholly owned subsidiary pf G&G Systems in Tokyo Japan.

Is your presnt CAD/CAM Software living up to your expectations?  You are probably cutting your molds or dies with a Triangulated Mesh surface, which is inaccurate, causes excessive tool wear, slows the machine down, requires extra unnecessary polishing and requires extra spotting.

The latest iteration of CGS North America's Elite CAD/CAM software for Molds & Dies, Cam-Tool version 12, now allows the creation of "Special Tools", which includes the unique bottom and corner rad shape on High Efficiency Roughing tools.
