Delcam’s Powermill CAM system has helped Walltopia, a manufacturer of artificial climbing walls, to get the most benefits possible out of its five-axis CMS machine.

Walltopia chose Delcam’s Powermill CAM system in order to generate programs for its CMS Ares five-axis milling centre that had been purchased to machine larger parts.

As well as allowing Walltopia to use all of the capabilities of the five-axis CMS machine, the software makes it possible to automate the production process and shorten the programming time by using templates and macro programming to generate toolpaths.

In particular, specialised strategies for disk cutting have boosted productivity by replacing the previous manual approach.
