GLENN COLEMAN - Chief Product Officer
Glenn has been involved in manufacturing for
more than a quarter-century. His professional experiences have led to a skill set that is
unique in the industry. Shop floor machining experience, from manual machining, to
CNC setup, to shift supervision, to CNC programming, preceded twenty years in the
CAD/CAM software industry. Having spent significant time on "both sides of the desk,"
Glenn is able to readily identify the true underlying machining problems facing today's manufacturers
and design innovative solutions to those problems. At Surfware, he invented Step Reduction Milling
(SRM), a multiple-tool roughing strategy that reduces programming time and machining
time in the mold-making industry. He is the principal inventor (first-named) on the patent
for the technology, which has been widely imitated in the industry.
Glenn is also the first named inventor on the patent for TrueMill®, the revolutionary patent-pending
toolpath engine that dynamically manages a cutting tool's radial engagement with the
material to dramatically reduce machining time. As Vice President of Product Design at
Surfware, he designed the functional algorithm for the solution and performed extensive
research on the technology, including mocking up proof-of-concept prototypes utilizing
only basic CAD/CAM tools. Glenn has authored, or been interviewed for, several
articles on this technology that have appeared in most major industry publications
throughout the world. He has also spoken at several SME-sponsored trade shows.
