Delcam (Windsor, ON) offers FeatureCAM 2009, which incorporates enhancements across its complete range of functionality, including increased support for mill-turn equipment. These machines are becoming more popular because of their ability to complete parts in a single setup on one machine. FeatureCAM development has focused on support for the more complex machines, those featuring multiple turrets and/or multiple spindles. Additional post-processors for these types of machine also have been introduced. Work has continued on extending the range of five-axis options. The software now supports both positional and continuous five-axis operation, five-axis trimming and five-axis drilling. Another key area for development has been four-axis simultaneous milling. This provides programming for milling machines with rotary tables and gives a more comprehensive solution than the existing rotary milling and fourth-axis wrapping options that were in previous versions of FeatureCAM. Finally, three-axis milling has been made more efficient.
