Mastercam Sponsors WorldSkills 2013
During the week of July 3 – 7 our Mastercam crew was in Leipzig, Germany to support 4 of the 46 competitions that make up WorldSkills. WorldSkills is the Olympics of the skilled trades held every two years in different locations around the world. This time over 1,000 competitors competed from 52 countries and Mastercam was the official CAM software used during the competition.
Our support staff was made up of 5 corporate Mastercam folks along with staff from our German partners InterCAM Deutschland and WDS. They helped ensure the competitions ran smoothly and provided technical support for the 87 Mastercam installations that were used in the competition.
Mastercam had a booth at the event where people could come up and “try” Mastercam to engrave their name on a key chain.
Up to 100,000 students are brought to this competition each time to be exposed to the skilled trades and career possibilities. We are sure that many young machinists are born at this event!
We would like to congratulate all the competitors for just making it to this competition. They have proven that they are the best in their field and will surely go on to very promising careers. The next 2015 WorldSkills will be held in Brazil and the 2017 WorldSkills was just announced to be in Dubai. Mastercam plans to continue supporting these competitions and we look forward to helping to introduce the manufacturing world to the next generations.
