CloudNC

Background:

CloudNC was founded by Theo Saville, CEO and Chris Emery, Chief Scientist in 2015 and consists of a world-class team combining expertise in computer science, software and physical manufacturing.

CloudNC’s mission is to make single-click manufacturing a reality. They build software that automates control of CNC machines – metal cutting robots that make >$1Trn of components every year, for anything from aircraft to iPhones to cars. Worldwide over 100 million hours are spent painstakingly programming these incredible machines by hand every year, a colossal waste of human time and talent in an industry already facing an existential skills crisis. CloudNC’s software, CAM Assist, brings one-click automation to CNC machining, via add-ons for Fusion 360 and Mastercam, as well as for Siemens NX CAM and Solid Edge CAM Pro, leaving the customers to perfect the strategy with their unique style, so they can focus on solving more exciting challenges.

CloudNC has a state-of-the-art factory in the UK, where the company supplies high-spec precision machined components to customers in a range of industrial sectors including Automotive, Defence, Aerospace & Space, Energy & Nuclear, and General Industry.

Backed by leading investors and partners, Atomico, Episode 1 Ventures, Autodesk and Lockheed Martin, they are scaling from Series B to C at pace and are fully funded for this growth.
