Parlec has utilised Delcam’s FeatureCAM feature-based CAM system for its its mill/turn centres.

FeatureCAM provides 3D simulations of the machining process.

The feature recognition within the system is especially useful to Parlec because the company continuously improves its various product lines.

The company’s tool presetting equipment, for example, has linear guides secured by bolts in counter-bored and tapped holes.

When new guide technology is added, the configuration of the holes changes.

When a file is opened, FeatureCAM will recognise if the model has changed, prompt the user to reload the model and tell them what has been changed.

Programming is faster because the updated features that need to be changed can be identified quickly and easily.

FeatureCAM can tailor the post processor to the shop’s own methods if necessary.

Delcam supplies software and services that help manufacturing companies to maximise their profitability by increasing productivity, improving quality and reducing lead times.
