Delcam to highlight aerospace success at Aero India

Delcam India will promote its customers’ recent successes in the aerospace industry at the Aero India exhibition to be held in Bangalore from 9th to 13th February. At the exhibition, Delcam will show how it has helped companies to meet the industry’s requirements for the highest levels of quality and consistency, cost-effective production and the shortest-possible delivery times.

Delcam software has been used, at some stage, on virtually every major aircraft programme in recent years. The company’s global customers have undertaken projects in all the various areas that go towards producing a successful aircraft, from developing more fuel-efficient engines, to manufacturing airframe components more effectively, and even in designing more comfortable and more attractive interiors. They have worked on all scales of project, from the manufacture of components for UAVs and helicopters up to the production of engines and airframes for the largest passenger and transport aircraft.

Delcam also supports a large number of MRO operations. These companies use Delcam systems to enable the fast, efficient repair or replacement of damaged components. By minimising design and manufacturing times, while maintaining the highest levels of quality, repairs can be completed as quickly as possible, so minimising the lost operating time of the aircraft.

"The aerospace industry in India is buoyant at the moment, both in the public and in the private sector,” reported Delcam India Managing Director, Vineet Seth. "However, for this growth to continue, our local supply chain needs to introduce more advanced technology, including more powerful and more efficient manufacturing software, in order to build its capacity and capability.”

Delcam has been ranked by CIMdata as the world’s largest specialist supplier of machining software for the past ten years. The company employs the largest development team in the CAM industry to develop a comprehensive range of systems for every type of machine tool, from simple lathes and 2D mills, up to the most sophisticated five-axis machining centres and multi-spindle, turn-mill equipment. However, Delcam also produces a complete portfolio of supporting software, for component design, tooling design, reverse engineering and inspection. All of the programs are available as stand-alone solutions to enhance existing systems or as part of a complete turn-key solution.

Delcam India also offers a range of services to help companies whose own engineering resource is needed to maintain its existing operations. The support given can vary from providing extra design and programming resources when existing staff are overloaded, through to developing completely new turn-key processes for the manufacture of novel designs.
