Delcam to show new multi-axis options in PartMaker at SOUTH-TEC

New 4- and 5-axis simultaneous milling strategies in PartMaker 2013 R2 will be demonstrated at SOUTH-TEC

Delcam to show new multi-axis options in PartMaker at SOUTH-TEC
Delcam’s PartMaker Division will demonstrate improved multi-axis machining options in the latest version of its PartMaker suite of CAM software at SOUTH-TEC 2013 in Greenville, South Carolina, from October 29th to 31st.  PartMaker will be on display together with the full range of Delcam’s CADCAM software in booth number 319.

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 SOUTH-TEC 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.”
