  • PowerMILL 2016
    PowerMILL – The world’s expert CAM solution for High Speed, 5-Axis and complex part manufacture. ...

  • Delcam has launched the 2016 version of its PowerMILL programming software for five-axis and high-speed machining.  For full details and video demonstrations of the new functionality, please go to www.delcam.tv/pm2016/lz

     

    The main enhancement in the new release is the ability to mirror complete machining projects in one operation and to maintain automatically the machining characteristics, for example to choose automatically whether climb or conventional milling should be used in each section of the toolpath.  Previously, only individual toolpaths could be mirrored.

     

    Automatic mirroring saves considerable time whenever right- and left-hand versions are needed of a part or tool.  It will also be faster to program the machining of symmetrical objects since it will be possible to program one half and then mirror the toolpaths to complete the program.

     

    To ensure that the mirroring has performed as expected, the new option can be used with the ability, introduced in PowerMILL 2015 R2, to undertake complete verification of a project for machine-tool issues such as collisions.  Comprehensive verification can be performed, including ensuring that the machine tool is capable of running the mirrored toolpaths, as well as checking for both machine-tool collisions and tooling collisions.

     

    PowerMILL 2015 R2 also saw the introduction of the ability to simulate machine-tool movements as tool changes are executed.  The capability has been enhanced in the 2016 release by allowing more complex tool changes to be simulated, in particular those involving a carousel mechanism.

     

    Other improvements to simulation in PowerMILL 2016 include a new form to print out the position of the cutting-tool tip during simulation, an auto-translucency option that will allow viewing of the table attach point at all times, and the ability to draw translucently the safe areas for rapid moves.

     

    Development work has continued on the optional modules for PowerMILL as well as to the main program.  In particular, a new, more efficient strategy to machine single blades has been developed for the Blades, Blisks & Impellors module, and a constant-Z machining option has been added to the module for programming the machining of ribs into tooling
  • PowerSHAPE 2016
    PowerSHAPE – Modeling for Manufacturing combines solid, surface and mesh modeling to enable complex parts to be prepared for manufacture....

  • The 2016 release of PowerSHAPE Pro software will help users to complete complex designs more quickly and more easily.  In addition, a combination of new, more efficient, code and the extension of multi-threaded calculations to many commonly-used tasks will make the software significantly faster than any previous version.

     

    One key enhancement allows groups of features to be copied between two solids in a single operation.  While the features do not need to be of the same type, the most common application is expected to be in copying patterns of holes from one solid to another, for example from one mould plate to any other plate in the mould stack.

  • PowerINSPECT 2016
    PowerINSPECT is the world’s leading hardware-independent 3D inspection solution....

  • Delcam has released the 2016 version of its PowerINSPECT inspection software, the world’s leading hardware-independent 3D inspection solution.  The new release includes greatly enhanced options for section measurement, more comprehensive collision avoidance, improved point cloud inspection, the ability to add notes to reports, and improved user control of CNC surface inspection routines.

    For video demonstrations of the new options, please go to http://www.delcam.tv/pi2016/LZ/en/index.asp

    Section inspection has been improved with easier creation of sections, better visualisation and enhanced reporting.  The enhanced options for section editing in PowerINSPECT 2016 include a slider that can be used to move the section through the part with real-time updating of the CAD view.  A specific value for the section intersection can still be entered if required. 

    New graphics options help with visualisation and reporting.  In the CAD view, the default option highlights the section cut and displays a semi-transparent representation of the material in the foreground, providing an accurate 3D visualisation of the section in place on the part.  During section creation the shading is updated dynamically as the section moves through the model. Alternatively, the near side can be hidden completely, or the complete CAD model can be shown in a solid colour as before. 

    Once the desired section has been chosen, the inspection path can be generated automatically.  The points generated can be edited if necessary.  The section can also be viewed and reported as a 2D true view of the section profile that is currently selected

  • PartMaker 2016
    PartMaker 2016 R2 expands the software’s cloud connectivity, offers seamless integration to the new PartMaker Multi-Channel Editor....

  • Delcam has released the latest version of its PartMaker Software for programming CNC Mills, Lathes, Wire EDMs, Turn-Mill Centers and Swiss-type lathes, PartMaker 2016 R2.  PartMaker 2016 R2 expands the software’s cloud connectivity, offers seamless integration to the new PartMaker Multi-Channel Editor and enhances the software’s 5-axis milling functionality, among other improvements. An overview of all these enhancements can be found at http://www.delcam.tv/pmk2016/lz/en/whats-new-r2.asp

     

    PartMaker 2016 R2 offers new functionality to directly download data from leading tooling vendors such as Iscar and Kennametal via the cloud.  When programming a part, a PartMaker user can now quickly select the right tool for their application from tooling-vendor specific tool database that resides on the cloud and accessed directly from PartMaker. The tool or tools chosen from the selected vendor’s database are automatically downloaded in a format ready to use in PartMaker.  This interface to cloud based tooling is quick, intuitive and highly productive.

    PartMaker 2016 R2 also offers seamless integration to the newly launched PartMaker Multi-Channel Editor.  PartMaker users can set the PartMaker Multi-Channel Editor as their default CNC editor and launch this new app directly from a PartMaker CAM session. When using the PartMaker Multi-Channel Editor in conjunction with PartMaker CAM, the PartMaker Multi-Channel Editor knows exactly what multi-channel Turn-Mill Center or Swiss-type lathe you are programming and applies that intelligence to allow you to dynamically align any synchronized operations.

    In addition to these technologies, PartMaker 2016 R2 offers a number of enhancements for 4 and 5 axis milling on vertical machining centers. The new version also provides a variety of improvements to the software’s broaching functionality. PartMaker 2016 R2 also includes the 2016 launch of PartMaker Modeling which greatly expands that application’s direct modeling functionality. Comprehensive details on all the new features and functionality in PartMaker 2016 R2 can be found at the PartMaker 2016 learning zone at http://www.delcam.tv/pmk2016/lz/en/whats-new-r2.asp.
