PowerMILL

PowerMILL is the choice for thousands of organisations around the world that need a CAM system to cope with their ever-increasing production demands. Built on over 40 years of CADCAM know-how, PowerMILL helps you create perfect toolpaths first time, every time.

Highlights

Vortex : Revolutionising high speed roughing

Vortex is Delcam's latest patent pending high speed roughing technology. Vortex controls the maximum engagement angle of the cutter in the material, such that the angle calculated for the programmed step over 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 60%. Vortex technology can be applied to 2 and 3-axis roughing, positional 5-axis roughing and for rest roughing.

Dynamic Machine Control Mode

A new toolbar has been created for PowerMILL 2014 R2 that allows you to simulate and adjust the configuration and tool axis of a 3+2 machine tool.

  • Dynamically edit the tool axis and/or machine tool orientation, allowing for:

     - Quick and easy updates to existing toolpaths with the new tool axis or machine tool orientation

     - Creation of a new workplane aligned to the new tool axis and machine tool orientation

  • Automatic warnings for machine tool collisions and axis limit violations
  • Support for machine tools with incremental rotary axes
