SprutCAM (32/64 bits version) is a mid-level CAM (Computer-Aided Manufacturing) program that runs on Microsoft Windows and was developed by SPRUT Technology, JSC. SprutCAM provide off-line CNC programming for cutting, wire EDM, 2, 3 and multi axial machining with support Multi-tasking Turn-Milling centers with live tooling (CNC Swiss-Type Lathe) and robots.
SPRUT Technology, JSC. was founded in 1987 by Alexander Kharadziev, who recruited a team of engineers to build a company that developed CAx software, with its headquarters at Naberezhnye Chelny, Russia, and released its known product, SprutCAM, in 1997.

The system requirements for SprutCAM depend upon which complexity and size project are used in customer's PC. An oversimplification would be to say that one should have a PC with an Intel Core2 Duo, 4GB RAM, 5GB HDD, 3D pointing device: 3Dconnexion 3D mouse-compliant, professional VideoCard: OpenGL-capable card (OpenGL 1.5), Windows XP SP2 and Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 SP2.
