Delcam’s PartMaker and Mazak to Demonstrate Using Bar-Fed Mills for Medical Device Manufacture

Delcam and Mazak will demonstrate the benefit of bar-fed millsPartMaker Inc., a division of Delcam Plc, in partnership with Mazak Corp. will demonstrate the benefits of using bar-fed milling technology for the manufacture of medical devices at Mazak’s Discover Mazak Northeast event at the company’s technology center located in Windsor Locks, Connecticut May 17 – 18, 2011.

The presentations will feature the manufacture of titanium spinal plate like the one shown above on the Mazak i-150. In addition to the machining presentations, PartMaker technical specialists will conduct seminars each day on the benefits of using bar-fed mills like the Mazak i-150 for the automated manufacture of medical devices as well CAD/CAM considerations for doing so.

"In many way, bar-fed mills like the Mazak i-150 represent the future of small, complex, low-volume CNC manufacturing, such as that often found in the medical arena,” says PartMaker Inc. division President Hanan Fishman.  "Together with Mazak we are very pleased to have the opportunity to demonstrate live the benefits of how CAM software can help manufacturers take advantage of this unique technology.  The Northeast has traditionally been a hub for leading-edge manufacturing techniques, so the fact that these presentations are being done in at Mazak’s Northeast Technology Center are highly appropriate.”

Unique Support for Bar-Fed Mills

PartMaker Version 2011 has been specifically designed to automate the programming of Bar-Fed Mills like the Mazak i-150.  Bar-fed mills are a new breed of machine tool technology that is growing more popular for the production of small, complex parts for such applications as medical device, aerospace, fluid power and any other industry that requires complex small parts.  In many ways, these machines represent the future of complex, low volume, small parts manufacturing.  With Version 2011, PartMaker aims to establish itself as the market leading system for automating the programming of Bar-Fed Mills by introducing a number of new features for handling the unique programming issues presented by these machines. PartMaker Version 2011 simulates the unique architectures and machine kinematics of Bar-Fed mills in its 3D simulation module and supports the Bar-Fed mill offerings with robust post processors and vivid simulation of such machines.

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.
