Moving to shop-floor machining with Delcam’s Powermill CAM software has allowed Korean mouldmaker Young Shin to increase its machining efficiency and product quality.

Young Shin contacted Hankook Delcam, Delcam’s joint venture company in Korea, as part of its search for a better programming system.

The staff there recommended a move to shop-floor machining, as well as a change to Powermill.

Following a series of machining trials, Hankook Delcam was able to prove that Powermill would be the best solution to the challenges at Young Shin.

This resulted in an initial order for eight seats of Powermill in April 2007.

After the successful implementation of this software, further orders took the total to 18 seats of Powermill, including two for continuous five-axis machining, plus two seats of Delcam’s feature-based CAM system, FeatureCAM, to generate programs for gun-drilling, and one of the Powerinspect inspection software for on-machine verification as part of the company’s quality-control procedures.

The use of Powermill and the switch to shop-floor machining have led to an increase in productivity.

Delays have been eliminated as the operators generate their own programs, shortening the overall production time.

As a result, machining efficiency at Young Shin has increased, the quality of the moulds, and of the products manufactured with them, has improved and production times have been reduced.

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.
