The range of support from Delcam Professional Services is mainly intended to help any company whose own engineering resource, whether people or equipment, is needed to maintain its existing operations. The services provided can vary from supplying extra design, programming and machining resources when the customer s own staff or equipment are overloaded, through to developing dedicated software to automate existing manufacturing methods or to establishing completely new turn-key processes for the production of novel designs.
Recent developments from Delcam Professional Services include a novel five-axis machining method, programmed with
The novel method for the creation of "fir-tree profiles was developed in partnership with Iruba, a German provider of engineered solutions, and machine-tool manufacturer Hermle. It allows these complex shapes to be produced on milling machines, such as the Hermle C60 five-axis machining centre, rather than having to use specialist broaching equipment.
The use of PowerMILL s trochoidal strategies to program the operation gives a number of benefits, in particular high material removal rates with lower, and more consistent, cutting forces.
The Hamuel hybrid machine combines five technologies in one unit five-axis CNC milling, laser cladding, robot polishing, inspection and laser marking. Any of these processes can be combined, as required by the particular project. The equipment costs only a fraction of the price of a multi-machine repair cell, as well as saving on floor space.
Using a hybrid machine, it is possible to remove the damaged area of a turbine blade by milling off the worn material and then build the material back up using the cladding technology.
