Major highlights of PartMaker 2015 include improved support for today’s latest breed of multi-tasking machine tools, such as vertical mill-turns, more powerful milling and turning functionality, and a unique approach to post processing for multi-axis turn-mill centres and Swiss-type lathes, among other productivity enhancements.

Productivity enhancements
“The innovations in PartMaker 2015 include a unique blend of productivity enhancements that both new and existing users of the software are going to love, along with a host of utterly unique and innovative technology that can’t be found anywhere else,” claims PartMaker Inc. President, Hanan Fishman. “PartMaker 2015 extends support of the product’s patented approach to programming multi-tasking machine tools to include today’s latest breed of multi-function machines, allowing our customers to stay on the leading edge of multi-task machining.”

Delcam to show PartMaker programming and modelling at SIAMS

Delcam will demonstrate the 2014 versions of its PartMaker CAM system for Swiss-type lathes, turn-mill equipment and bar-fed mills, and the PartMaker Modeling CAD-for-CAM software at the SIAMS exhibition to be held in Moutier, Switzerland, from 6th to 9th May.

PartMaker 2014 includes Delcam’s Vortex high-efficiency area clearance strategy and many other enhancements.

PartMaker 2014 marks the introduction of Delcam’s Vortex high-efficiency strategy for area clearance into the PartMaker CAM suite.  Other enhancements in the 2014 version include improved back-turning and 2D pocketing functionality, support for additional tool types and faster programming of lead-in and lead-out moves, and a new NC program viewer among other improvements.

Optimal cutting conditions
Vortex is Delcam’s newest proprietary high-speed roughing technology.  Vortex controls the maximum engagement angle of the cutter in the material, such that the angle calculated for the programmed stepover is never exceeded, even in internal corners.  This allows for optimal cutting conditions to be maintained throughout the toolpath.
By controlling the maximum engagement angle and the load on the tool, Vortex can take deeper cuts than traditionally used in roughing operations.  Depths of cut up to the full flute length enable maximum material removal rate from solid carbide tooling and reduce machining times by up to 70%.

Back turning tools included
PartMaker 2014 also includes improved functionality to support the automated programming of back-turning tools.  These tools are used across a wide variety of small-part turning applications, particularly in Swiss machining. With their unique geometry and cutting characteristics, back-turning tools can eliminate the need for multiple tools and so can reduce cycle time and improve surface finish.

New PartMaker features Vortex roughing and much more

Delcam’s PartMaker Division has released PartMaker 2014, which marks the introduction of Delcam’s Vortex high-efficiency strategy for area clearance into the PartMaker CAM suite.

Deeper cuts…

By controlling the maximum engagement angle and the load on the tool, Vortex can take deeper cuts than traditionally used in roughing operations. Depths of cut up to the full flute length enable maximum material removal rate from solid carbide tooling and reduce machining times by up to 70%. Vortex is available as a free upgrade to licensees of PartMaker’s Advanced Surface Machining (ASM) module that are on maintenance.

Back turning tools…
PartMaker 2014 includes improved functionality to support the automated programming of back-turning tools.  These tools are used across a wide variety of small-part turning applications, particularly in Swiss machining. With their unique geometry and cutting characteristics, back-turning tools can eliminate the need for multiple tools and so can reduce cycle time and improve surface finish.

..and other enhancements
The new version also presents many other enhancements, for example:

  • 2D pocketing.  This more powerful functionality allows for more efficient and intelligent material removal from 2D pockets.
  • The raster finishing strategy in PartMaker ASM has also been enhanced, resulting in less fragmented toolpaths without overlaps when machining highly complex shapes, thus improving part surface finish.
  • …and much more!
