Delcam will demonstrate the latest software releases from its development team at a special open house to be held at the DMG-MORI showroom in Coventry on 6–7 May.

Products on show will include PowerMILL for high-speed and five-axis machining; FeatureCAM for feature-based CAM programming; and the On-Machine Verification version of the PowerINSPECT inspection software.

The event will also include live machining demonstrations on a range of DMG-MORI machines programmed with Delcam software and using tooling from SGS Carbide Tools. In addition, there will be presentations from DMG-MORI on how to choose the optimum machine tool and from SGS on the latest developments in tooling for efficient machining.

Software in detail

PowerMILL 

  • The latest release of PowerMILL includes improvements to the Vortex high-efficiency area-clearance strategy, developments in toolpath simulation and verification, improved collision checking to also cover near misses and more efficient raster finishing, area clearance and drilling, plus more options for customisation by users. 
  • Complete verification, covering cutting moves, leads and links, and tool changes can now be undertaken of a PowerMILL project for machine-tool issues such as collisions, saving considerable time compared with undertaking the verification of each individual toolpath in turn.
  • Comprehensive verification is performed, including ensuring that the machine tool is capable of running the proposed strategy, as well as checking for both machine-tool collisions and tooling collisions. A detailed list is generated of any problems found so that these can be fixed on a case-by-case basis.

FeatureCAM

  • FeatureCAM was the world’s first feature-based programming software when it was launched in 1995. Constant development since then has ensured that the system has retained its programming speed and ease of use, while an increased range of strategies has been added to provide more efficient toolpaths giving greater productivity on a wider range of machines, including lathes, mills and mill-turn machines.
  • The 2015 R2 release incorporates a milling calculator to help users obtain the maximum benefit from the Vortex high-efficiency area-clearance strategy.
  • Other enhancements include the ability to create multi-tool blocks within machine designs, better control over toolpath output and more efficient automatic selection of tools.

PowerINSPECT

  • On-machine verification with PowerINSPECT allows initial checking of machined parts to be carried out in situ on any CNC machine tool with probing capabilities, rather than having to transfer the parts to co-ordinate measuring machines for inspection.
  • The main advantage is that mistakes are discovered where they can be corrected — on the machine tool. Repeated cycles of machining and inspection, interspersed with long setup times on the respective pieces of equipment, are avoided, meaning that overall manufacturing times can be reduced.

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.
