What a difference six months makes! In the time since our last newsletter was published, Third Wave Systems held our most successful Users Conference to date, relocated to a new facility, released a new version of Production Module, received an exclusive U.S. Department of Energy award, and ramped up preparation efforts for IMTS 2012. It has been a busy, but rewarding, time at here at Third Wave, and we hope your business has been equally fruitful. All the best for a profitable second half of 2012...

2012 Users Conference Recap
Third Wave's 2012 Users Conference was the most well attended
conference in Third Wave history, as well as the most varied in terms of technicality and industry representation. With fourteen presentations
ranging from constitutive modeling to U.S. defense clusters, there was something for all 83 attendees from around the world.
2013 Users Conference: Save the Date
At the conclusion of the 2012 Users Conference, Third Wave President Kerry Marusich announced the date and location for next year's event: May 15-16, 2013 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Mark your calendars and plan to join us!
In May of 2012, Third Wave consolidated its two Minnesota facilities into a newly-renovated 12,000 square foot office. The move enables the company to support an expanding staff and growing inventory of machining testing & validation equipment, while also promoting a more productive and collaborative work environment.
Third Wave Systems successfully released version 6.1 of Production Module in May of 2012, at the same time that the company announced several internal staffing changes that better align its technical support resources with customer needs. New features and product enhancements implemented in Production Module version 6.1 include split arc optimization, improved CAM interfaces, and expanded G-code coverage.
