MayTec Design software

  • MayCAD for aluminum extrusion design, BOM development, and modeling which can be imported into SolidWorks for assemblies
  • MayTube design software for pipe and joint system design and BOM creation

CNC machine programming using multi-axis CAM software

  • Accurately simulate, validate, and program prior to machining
  • Import SolidWorks models directly from design content to ensure the latest part variation and features are manufactured precisely
