Delcam is set to host a UK event dedicated to the Comet project. Partners will host free seminars on machining with robots throughout Europe, including a session focusing on Delcam’s Powermill Robot Interface software.

The project has aimed to overcome the drawbacks of industrial robots by developing flexible, reliable and predictable robot machining systems that offer cost savings in comparison with machine tools.

The Comet Plug-and-Produce platform consists of a combination of technologies that increase robot accuracy and enhance the span of the industrial application of robots, including path programming and simulation software; modelling of the kinematic and dynamic behaviour of the robot; optical tracking system to feedback positioning corrections to the controller; and an active compensation mechanism that further improves the accuracy beyond the structural capability of the robot system.

During the seminars, participants will be guided through the decision-making process in order to fully understand how robot machining fits their own market applications. There will also be a visit to a robot cell facility, which, depending on the demo cell at the hosting partner, will provide the participants with the chance to see the results of the technologies achieved through the project.

Delcam supplies software and services that help manufacturing companies to maximise their profitability by increasing productivity, improving quality and reducing lead times. The company is the world's largest specialist supplier of computer-aided machining software, with its PowerMILL, FeatureCAM, Partmaker and ArtCAM programs making up the most comprehensive range of CAM systems from any developer.

This broad selection allows Delcam to offer a CAM system capable of machining virtually any product, in any material on any type of equipment. Delcam also develops product design, tooling design and quality control programs. The unique Tribrid Modelling approach to design incorporates solid modelling, surface modelling and triangle modelling in a single program, enabling complete design and reverse engineering projects to be undertaken without transferring data between software.

Delcam's Powerinspect offers fast, reliable comparison of parts, prototypes and tooling against CAD data on all types of inspection equipment and even on machine tools. This versatility has made it the world's leading hardware-independent inspection software. Related programs are available for checking machine tool set-up and part location. Delcam software is used in over 80 countries worldwide by around 40,000 organisations, from large multi-nationals to small sub-contractors, in industries including aerospace, automotive, dental, engineering, footwear, medical and toolmaking.
