Delcam Thailand recently held a two-day event promoting on-machine verification (OMV) to manufacturers in Bangkok. The event — hosted by Mazak and supported by Renishaw — included presentations on Mazak’s machine tools, Renishaw’s probing systems and Delcam’s Powerinspect inspection software.

The event featured live demonstrations, with a workshop format that provided delegates with initial training in the use of OMV with Renishaw probes on Mazak machines.

OMV with Delcam’s Powerinspect allows the initial checking of machined parts to be carried out in situ on any CNC machine tool, rather than having to transfer them to co-ordinate measuring machines for inspection.

Key advantages of OMV

  • 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
  • Manufacturing times can be reduced
  • Modern machine tools can be retrofitted with probing systems
  • Time savings can be achieved by the continuous monitoring of component quality during manufacture

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.
