Fort Washington, PA - PartMaker Inc. and Mori Seiki have partnered in an effort to provide Mori Seiki users a seamless, well-proved programming solution for the new Mori Seiki NT Turn-Mill center. PartMaker CAD/CAM software, in addition, supports the full line of Mori Seiki multi-axis lathes including the Mori Seiki ZT, MT, NL, DL and SL models among others.
As part of the cooperation between PartMaker and Mori Seiki on the new NT model, Mori Seiki engineers have tested NC program output generated by PartMaker for programming various machining scenarios on the Mori Seiki NT. These machining scenarios include various turning and milling operations, canned cycle routines and synchronous machining combinations using the machine's articulating B-axis head and lower turret.
"The collaboration between Mori Seiki and PartMaker is a unique one because it allows Mori Seiki NT users to have a high degree of confidence in the results they can achieve with PartMaker even though the Mori Seiki NT model is still a relatively new model in the field," says Hanan Fishman, PartMaker Inc. President. "Mori Seiki has shown tremendous vision in making a proactive investment in testing PartMaker output for the NT machine so its users can be assured of the results they achieve when implementing PartMaker for this machine."
"By working with leading CAM software vendors such as PartMaker" adds Dr. Fujishima, Development Director for Mori Seiki, "we are able to give our customers the assurance that there is a programming solution available to meet their needs when investing in our latest generation NT range of our multi-tasking machine tools."
More on PartMaker
PartMaker is a Knowledge Based Machining system, allowing it to provide a substantial gain in programming efficiency by remembering the tools, material and process information necessary to machine individual part features. PartMaker thus relieves the user from reentering the same features information for subsequent parts. It also improves productivity by placing the emphasis on tool management functions. The software supports the full range of CNC applications including CNC Mills, Lathes, Wire EDMs, multi-tasking Turn-Mill Centers and CNC Swiss-type lathes.
PartMaker pioneered a Visual Programming Approach for programming multi-axis lathes with live tooling, a system for which it holds two U.S. patents. PartMaker assures quicker learning and easier use. It makes an extensive use of pictures to help the user describe tools, part features and machining data. Synchronization of tools working on multiple spindles is achieved by a few mouse clicks.
