Delcam will promote its range of software and services for the aerospace manufacturing and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) industries on the Midlands Aerospace Alliance stand at the Paris Air Show, which will take place on 17–23 June 2013.

The company claims it can help aerospace companies to increase productivity, reduce lead times or improve quality and consistency. Its services vary from supplying extra design and programming resources when existing staff are overloaded to developing dedicated software to automate existing manufacturing methods and even establishing new turnkey processes for the manufacture of novel designs.

Delcam’s Professional Services team co-operates closely with clients to enhance their existing design and manufacturing operations, usually by using a combination of Delcam software to develop specific solutions to each company’s productivity and quality problems. The team often works with a network of suppliers of related technology, including machine tools, cutting tools and inspection equipment, to ensure that a comprehensive turnkey solution can be provided when required.

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.
