PartMaker Inc., a division of Delcam, offers its latest version of software for programming CNC mills, lathes, wire EDMs, turn-mill centers and Swiss-type lathes.  The software supports the B-axis equipped turn-mill centers and Swiss-type lathes. B axis refers to the ability of a multi-axis lathe to perform milling at any angle, not only in a vertical or horizontal position.

PartMaker Version 2015 also includes the ability to generate a post processor reference guide, an on-command manual explaining how to program a given multi-axis lathe and take advantage of all the machine’s capabilities as well as more powerful milling and turning functionality and improvements in the software’s knowledge-based technology for storing optimal feeds and speeds for additional tools.

The software also includes support for vertical mill-turns. These machine tools are unique because they provide the turning functionality typically found on a vertical turret lathe with that of a five-axis VMC.
