Yamazaki Mazak and Delcam have collaborated to organise seminars that highlight how combining the correct machine-tool and software technology can improve productivity.

The companies will hold one-day seminars at Mazak’s European headquarters in Worcester, from 12-13 May.

The events will focus on the key elements of program, prove, produce and profit.

Each day of the event will feature three sessions that highlight specific technologies, five-axis machining, multi-function machine tools and on-machine verification, and the support that Mazak and Delcam provide to deliver optimum productivity in each area.

Each session will include interactive demonstrations and live cutting, together with opportunities to quiz the companies’ experts.

The first session will concentrate on five-axis machining, with Delcam’s Powermill CAM software and Mazak’s Variaxis 630-5X T taking centre stage.

Programming the job in advance is especially relevant for five-axis machining, to draw the optimum performance and efficiency from the machine tool.

Following this will be a demonstration of the capability and versatility offered by the Mazak Integrex series of multi-function machine tools when used in conjunction with the latest version of Delcam’s Featurecam CAM system.

This session will make sure that manufacturers are aware of the extra benefits offered by the latest developments in CAM systems and machine tools.

The final presentation of the day will focus on on-machine verification and the benefits that can be gained by using Delcam’s Powerinspect inspection software.

Powerinspect is a hardware-independent system for comparing components or tooling against 3D CAD data.

It can make use of three-, four-, five- or six-axis machine tools to undertake comprehensive verification of parts while still on the machine, both during and after machining.

This will be demonstrated alongside a live cutting-demonstration utilising the latest and most efficient cutting strategies.

All visitors will have the opportunity to view many of the demonstrated techniques in action.

Further details and an online booking form are available from Delcam’s website.
