Kuei Tong Huang, from National Chin-Yi University of Technology in Taiwan, has been named as the winner of Delcam’s 2015 international student CAM competition, which was held at the company’s Birmingham headquarters earlier this month. Runner-up in the competition was Zhao Zhiyang from China, while Lee Hyun Jun from South Korea came third.

The other finalists came from Germany, Russia, Malaysia and Ukraine. Each of the contestants had previously won the CAM competition in their region to qualify for the final in Birmingham. 

The Delcam CAM competition was again sponsored by cutting-tool supplier Seco, which provided the tooling for the student’s machining projects.

For the final competition, each student was given an IGES file of a component from which they had to produce a machining program using Delcam’s PowerMILL software for high-speed and five-axis machining. The various NC programs were then run on one of the high-speed machining centres within Delcam’s Advanced Manufacturing Facility using a specified range of tooling supplied by Seco. All of the students were able to produce toolpaths that could be machined successfully, with the results being assessed against criteria including quality of toolpaths, machining time and surface finish.
