Delcam Professional Services adds Mori Seiki NMV 5000
Delcam Professional Services has increased the range of five-axis machining equipment within its Advanced Manufacturing Facility with the addition of a Mori Seiki NMV 5000 machine. This latest expansion of the equipment at the company’s Birmingham headquarters follows increased demand for the company’s process development and prototype manufacturing services.
The Mori Seiki machine extends the ability of Delcam Professional Services to undertake high-speed, high-precision five-axis machining of complex parts. The design is ideal for prototype and short-run production work because it allows excellent access to the workpiece and easy, efficient operability. It will be used in Birmingham initially for process development projects for mid-sized aerospace parts.
The primary focus of Delcam Professional Services is to work with clients, mainly in the aerospace and power generation industries, to improve their manufacturing processes by increasing productivity, improving accuracy and shortening lead times. For the majority of projects, these improvements are achieved through the use of adaptive machining, Delcam’s unique combination of machining and inspection technology.
Delcam Professional Services also supports manufacturing companies whose own engineering resource is needed to maintain its existing operations. The services provided can vary from supplying extra design and programming resources when existing staff are overloaded, through to developing dedicated software to automate existing manufacturing methods or to establishing completely new turn-key processes for the manufacture of novel designs.
The Professional Services team cooperates closely with its clients to enhance their existing design and manufacturing operations, usually by using a combination of Delcam’s software to develop specific solutions to the company’s productivity and quality problems. The team often work with a network of suppliers of related technology, including machine tools, cutting tools and inspection equipment, to ensure that a comprehensive turnkey solution can be provided when required.
