Delcam Turkiye, the subsidiary formed by Delcam in Turkey last year, took part in its first open house with DMG/Mori Seiki at its Istanbul showroom from 29 May to 1 June. For the event, a replica of the FIFA World Cup trophy was programmed using Delcam’s Powermill CAM software and machined using a DMU 80 Evo linear five-axis machine tool.

The machine — which was being demonstrated in Turkey for the first time — features a new gantry design that helps to improve rigidity and precision.

More than 150 people attended the open house, including representatives from companies from Turkey’s automotive, mouldmaking and production machining industries.

Powermill 2013

  • The demonstration took advantage of the extensive range of strategies for five-axis machining available in Powermill; for the 2013 release, this functionality has been improved with an increased number of options for tool-axis definition.
  • For raster toolpaths, the lead and lean angles can now be defined relative to a contact normal.
  • Better control is now possible for the tool-axis definition when using the To or From a Point, Line or Curve strategies.
  • These improvements make it easier for users to control the contact angle between the cutter and the part, enabling them to set the optimum cutting conditions.

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.
