Delcam will demonstrate the company's

unique Vortex strategy for high-efficiency

area-clearance at MACH.

Following the introduction of Vortex strategy

in PowerMILL 2014 last September,

Delcam's new roughing strategy has now

been added to the FeatureCAM, PartMaker

and Delcam for SolidWorks CAM systems.

A video showing the benefits of using

Vortex in FeatureCAM to program a HAAS

machine can be seen at

Vortex gives the fastest safe metal removal

from solid carbide tooling, in particular

designs that give deeper cuts by using the

full flute length as the cutting surface. It

can be used for two- and three-axis roughing, three-plus-two-axis

area clearance and

for rest machining. It gives benefits when

machining all types of materials, including

titanium, tool steel and alloys such as


Vortex produces toolpaths with a controlled

engagement angle and so maintains the

optimum cutting conditions for the toolpath

that would normally be possible only for the

straight-line moves.

As a result, higher feed rates are possible

so the cutting time will be shorter, while cutting will be undertaken at a more


volume-removal rate and at a constant

feed rate, so protecting the machine and

increasing the life of the cutting tools.

• At last year's Advanced Engineering Show

at the NEC Delcam demonstrated machining

with robots using the PowerMILL Robot

Interface. The interface can be used for the

programming of robots for a variety of multiaxis machining operations, including patternmaking,

modelmaking, trimming and drilling

of composite components, and deburring

and polishing of metal parts. Stand 4011


Hardcoating Technologies Limited (HTL) will demonstrate its full range of advanced coatings for engineering

businesses when it makes its debut at MACH.

The company was recently established in the UK with the

goal of providing an enhanced coating service focused on

quality and efficient service and is one of the company's

within the GTMA Pavilion.

Visitors will be able to find out about HTL's PVD (physical

vapour deposition) coatings. These include Super Nitride

coating for drills and milling tools such as Aluminium Titanium

Nitride AlTiN SuperAlt (also known as Hyperlox) and Titanium

Diboride TiB2 SuperTib (also known as AluSpeed).

For indexable inserts Allox SN2 - TiAlN Plus - double thickness coating, and Hyperlox can also be applied. Power

Nitride coatings using the HiPIMS state-of-the-art process

include HiPulse Power for superior tool life and performance

on stainless, titanium and high temperature alloys; and

HiPulse Hard.

This is the very latest coating technology offered by the

company. A second generation Nano-structured coating, it

offers significant performance benefits. Stand 4459d





Vortex in FeatureCAM gives a deeper cut on this

HAAS machine so reducing cycle times significantly.



Eley Metrology, which was founded in

1976 by the current Chairman Jeff Eley,

who also later acquired Crown Windley,

will be promoting its full range of solutions at MACH. The combined strengths

of the two include:

• The ground breaking LBM (Long Bore Measurement) machine.

Specifically designed for internal inspection of deep-bored components including aero-engine

shafts, undercarriage assemblies

along with oil and nuclear industry components.

• Truth and Millennium range of CNC Co-ordinate Measuring


• The UK distributor for the DeMeet range of Optical non-contact

video measurement

• VMS (Vertical Measuring System) offering a range of sizes.

• CMM Retrofits, Software updates, Maintenance and Calibration


• Metrology Standards.

• Sub-contract Inspection services.

• UKAS and ISO10360 Accredited.

In addition it provides software to the metrology industry and has

recently released its latest True Measure CMM scanning package. Stand 5754
