Micron Manufacturing has found that Delcam’s Partmaker software has given the company a competitive advantage by allowing it to easily machine parts that are extremely difficult to program by hand.

Micron is a family-run business that produces parts of all sizes and complexities.

Its range of equipment includes the largest Citizen machine available: the Citizen L-32. This machine has five stick tools, turning tools, four live tools and four back-working tools.  

Key benefits of product application

  • The company says that writing the code to produce the Citizen L-32 parts is almost impossible by hand, but with Partmaker it is easy as the part can be simulated in Partmaker and the user can see what is going to happen before it is put in the machine, which saves a lot of time.
  • Micron Manufacturing also appreciates the training and the support that it has been given: after a week’s training with Partmaker, staff were able to get back and start programming straight away. 
  • On occasions when the company has needed support, no more than 24 hours elapsed before a response from anyone at Partmaker.   
  • According to the company, adding Partmaker software has made it possible for customers to be able to send more complex parts that they could not send Micron before.
