Newest PartMaker Version to be Introduced at Eastec 2008

PartMaker Version 8.6, featuring significant enhancements, will be shown for the first time at Eastec 2008


Fort Washington, PA – PartMaker Inc., a division of Delcam Plc, will demonstrate its latest release, Version 8.6 of its PartMaker® CAD/CAM software for CNC Mills, Lathes, WireEDM, Turn-Mill Centers and Swiss-type lathes at Eastec 2008 in West Springfield, MA. PartMaker Version 8.6 features a variety of new functionality and enhanced capability all designed to make PartMaker users more productive including enhancements to the software’s 3D simulation module, surface machining capabilities and solid model handling features


.
“PartMaker Version 8.6 represents another big step forward in the product growth of PartMaker,” according to Hanan Fishman, PartMaker Inc.’s President. “The improvements made in this new version are the result of PartMaker Inc’s continued heavy focus on research and development aimed to help PartMaker users become more productive in an ever changing manufacturing environment where machine architectures are becoming more complicated, part geometries more complex and solid models more prevalent.”

PartMaker Version 8.6 features improvements to programming inclined turning operations on B-axis lathes equipped with articulating tool heads, including the ability to program angled grooves, in addition to other grooving enhancements. This enhanced capability also improves the simulation of “mini-turrets”, tool holders that can hold a number of turning tools in a single station. Additionally, capabilities to program angled thread milling features for inclined tooling attachments for machines without articulating heads and global coordinate systems has been added.

The latest version also features improvements to PartMaker’s 3D milling software known as the Surface Machining Wizard (SMW). PartMaker Version 8.6 features improvements to a number of surface machining strategies including various Finishing and Projection Machining strategies.

The Full Machine Simulation (FMS) module, which allows the user to simulate full working model of his/her machine in the PartMaker environment has also been improved in Version 8.6 focusing on the ability to support ever increasingly complex and non-standard machine architectures in an intuitive manner.

PartMaker Version 8.6 also includes a number of improvements in the intuitive handling of solids-based programming across all PartMaker modules including Mill, Turn, Turn-Mill, Swiss and Wire EDM. These enhancements include more powerful methods for programming in 5-axis planes and more robust geometry handling for planar surfaces as well as unwrapped cylindrical geometries.

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. It 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.

PartMaker pioneered the field of CAM software for Turn-Mills and Swiss-type lathes with its patented Visual Programming Approach for programming multi-axis lathes with live tooling. It 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.

PartMaker Inc. is a subsidiary of Delcam Plc, the world’s leading developer and supplier of complete CAD/CAM software solutions. Delcam Plc is publicly traded on the AIM exchange in London. While PartMaker is sold direct in North America by PartMaker Inc. PartMaker is sold overseas through a network of sales partner offices operating in over 120 countries.
