At the Metalloobrabotka exhibition in Moscow on 16–20 June 2014, Delcam will highlight robotic machining with a demonstration of machining by a robot programmed with Powermill Robot. The company will also showcase its range of design, machining and inspection software, showing the latest functionality in Delcam’s Powershape Pro CAD software, Powermill and FeatureCAM CAM systems, and Powerinspect inspection software.

Robot machining will form the centrepiece of the Delcam stand at Metalloobrabotka

According to Delcam, Powermill Robot software makes it as easy to program a robot for machining as it is to program a five-axis machine tool. Furthermore, users have access to the range of multi-axis machining strategies within Powermill.

Powermill Robot can be used to simulate the complete machining operation and to control the robot’s movements through different variables, such as axis limits, axis priorities and workplane constraints. Various aspects within the configuration of the robot cell, such as axis limits, tool constraints and home position, can be defined, and the simulation of the robot completed within these constraints.

Key product features

Powershape Pro

  • Includes a range of new functionality for the design of products and tooling.
  • Introduces new tools to make re-engineering complex parts from scanned data faster and easier, plus an option to merge disjointed faces within a solid and so make direct modelling operations more robust.
  • Offers a combination of solid, surface and direct modelling, together with reverse engineering functionality.
  • Having all the different technologies in the same package reduces the need to transfer data between multiple programs and so streamlines the whole product development process.
  • The combination of quick and easy direct modelling options, together with powerful and flexible surface modelling, makes Powershape Pro suitable for design for manufacture.

Powermill

  • Powermill 2014 R2 CAM software includes new options for high-speed and five-axis machining of parts and tooling with high speed and accuracy.
  • Simulation and customisation tools, plus greater editing flexibility, give even greater opportunities to minimise programming times and reduce manufacturing times.
  • Improvements to Delcam’s Vortex high-efficiency area-clearance strategy is also included.
  • Vortex gives fast and safe metal removal by allowing solid carbide tooling to cut with its full flute length so minimising machining times.
  • At the same time, Vortex toolpaths use a controlled engagement angle between the cutter and the part, and so give a more consistent volume-removal rate and feed rate, minimising wear on the cutter.

FeatureCAM

  • FeatureCAM 2014 R2 includes the Vortex area-clearance strategy.
  • It also provides support for milling and drilling with right-angle heads, and one-stop programming of multiple roughing operations.
  • Other enhancements include better control of Z-level roughing, and improvements to wire EDM and chamfering.

Powerinspect

  • Powerinspect 2014 features a new interface with new icons that makes the software more intuitive and even easier to use.
  • Other enhancements include the ability to create compound items and so speed up and simplify repetitive measurements.

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.
