An example of the porcelain products design by Revol with Delcam software
Delcam France will highlight the success enjoyed recently by a selection of its customers at the Industrie exhibition to be held in Lyon from 10th to 13th March. The Delcam stand will feature complex parts made by a variety of companies using the company’s software, including design consultant Devèze Design, porcelain manufacturer Revol, engineering sub-contractor Gao and glass producer Sovep.
"Everywhere you turn at the moment, there seems to be nothing but bad news,” commented Delcam France Sales Manager, Bruno Gubala. "We thought that we should provide some good news for a change by celebrating the success of our customers.”
As well as the various customer parts, visitors to the Delcam France stand will be able to see programming demonstrations with the latest versions of Delcam machining software. The complete range comprises PowerMILL for high-speed and five-axis machining, FeatureCAM for feature-based programming, PartMaker for Swiss-type lathes and turn-mill equipment, and ArtCAM for engraving and routing. Together, these programs comprise the world’s most comprehensive range of CAM software from a single suppler. This broad coverage is one of the reasons why Delcam is consistently ranked as the world’s leading specialist supplier of NC software and services by US analysts Cimdata.
The new release of PowerMILL offer a more complete solution for complex machining operations, together with more control for experienced machinists that know exactly how they wish to machine a particular part. The program also includes a range of enhancements to existing functionality to enable both faster programming and faster machining.
FeatureCAM 2009 also incorporates enhancements across its complete range of functionality. An important focus has been increased options for more complex machines, such as mill-turn equipment, and four- and five-axis mills. This will allow users to tackle more sophisticated parts than could be programmed before. Developments have also continued increase the efficiency of the more fundamental machining operations, including turning and three-axis milling.
Major highlights of the new release of PartMaker include a revamped and more productive user-interface, improved capabilities for programming directly on solid models and more realistic machine simulation for the increasingly-complex machine architectures of today’s multi-axis turn-mill centres and Swiss-type lathes. The enhanced user interface will make PartMaker users even more productive in programming their CNC equipment, while offering new users an even easier to learn, more capable CNC programming platform.
The main emphasis within the latest release of ArtCAM has been on improved strategies for harder materials to enable more efficient and faster engraving of metal tooling. Typical applications that will benefit include the engraving of decorations, logos and lettering into moulds, the manufacture of stamping dies for coins and medals, and the production of embossing dies for cards, packaging and book covers. In addition, the machining simulations have been made much more realistic as part of a general improvement in the ability to visualise designs in a variety of materials.
