Julia Meyer-Hendricks joined ModuleWorks in 2013 and has a rich background in Sales and Account Management. She will partner Mr. Wallraff as Head of Business Development – Digital Manufacturing.
This business area is dedicated to CNC manufacturers and machine tool builders. Recent years have seen significant expansion in the range of software available on CNC controllers, including simulation, toolpath creation and even full collision avoidance systems. This trend is expected to continue as the processing power of CNCs increases and the expectations of users grow. Machine tool builders are also looking to provide complete solutions to end users, including appropriate software to drive the machines. ModuleWorks Digital Factory addresses these needs with an effective combination of component technology and bespoke development.
Mark Foti, Head of Technology – Digital Factory, will team up with Fabian Tarara, the new Head of Business Development – Digital Factory.
