Delcam is to demonstrate new features in FeatureCAM 2010 in a global series of webex events.

FeatureCAM 2010 includes enhancements across the full range of functionality, from 2D drilling and wire EDM, to five-axis milling and mill-turn operations.

Support for multi-threading when generating 3D toolpaths allows calculations to be spread across multiple cores, resulting in an average time saving of 23 per cent on dual-core PCs.

A Drill/Mill enhancement combines drilling and milling functionality for more efficient hole creation.

With built-in intelligence, Drill/Mill offers automatic selection of tooling and method based on the current tool crib.

This enables users to reduce setup time, programming time, cycle time and tooling requirements.

PowerMill technologies, including point distribution, tool-axis smoothing and spiral finishing options, have been introduced into FeatureCAM 2010.

The benefits include faster machining, smoother machine motion and improved surface finish.

Machining simulation has also been made faster and more accurate with the addition of a dual-view option, which allows a part to be viewed from two different angles simultaneously.

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.
