Delcam to show new multi-axis PartMaker module at WESTEC
Delcam’s PartMaker Division will demonstrate improved multi-axis machining options in the latest version of its PartMaker suite of CAM software at WESTEC 2013 in Los Angeles, California from October 15th to 17th. PartMaker will be on display in booth number 1612.
The new four- and five-axis simultaneous milling functionality in PartMaker Version 2013 R2, known as ASM-MX, or Advanced Surface Machining – Multi-Axis, applies across the entire PartMaker CAM suite, including the PartMaker Mill, Turn-Mill and SwissCAM modules. In addition to providing unique four- and five-axis simultaneous milling functionality, ASM-MX has also been priced cost effectively relative to other CAM systems on the market for high-end milling.
One the hallmarks of PartMaker ASM-MX, like other Delcam CAM systems such as PowerMILL, is that all the machining algorithms underlying the software are developed in-house, by Delcam’s industry-largest CAM development team, not licensed from a third party developer. This approach assures the users of Delcam’s PartMaker that they are getting unique functionality that will allow them to stay ahead of the competition.
The new four- and five-axis simultaneous milling strategies found in ASM-MX are based on the same unique approach to multi-axis programming used in Delcam’s PowerMILL, Delcam’s industry-leading CAM system for the manufacture of complex shapes. ASM-MX provides the user with complete tool-axis control for all five-axis simultaneous machining strategies.
Additionally, ASM-MX features a totally unique new machining strategy called "Spine Finishing.” Spine finishing can be used in either four- or five-axis simultaneous operations and is ideal for machining parts with unique curves, such as angulated abutments found in the dental implant industry.
"The new functionality in PartMaker that will be on display at WESTEC lets users harness the power of highly sophisticated four- and five-axis simultaneous milling in an intuitive and practical, yet highly sophisticated and elegant manner,” claimed PartMaker Division President, Hanan Fishman. "Advanced surface machining practices are becoming more and more common in production machining environments. This trend is growing in popularity particularly among those working in the medical and aerospace fields, which are very strong in Southern California.”
