Increased demand for the process development and prototype manufacturing services available from Delcam Professional Services has prompted the addition of a Mori Seiki NMV 5000 machine to the range of five-axis machining equipment within its Advanced Manufacturing Facility. This latest expansion of the equipment at the company s Birmingham headquarters extends the company s ability to undertake high-speed, high-precision five-axis machining of complex parts. The range of support from Delcam Professional Services is mainly intended to help any company whose own engineering resource 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 manufacture of novel designs. Recent developments from Delcam Professional Services include a novel five-axis machining method, programmed with Delcam s PowerMILL CAM system, for the creation of “fir-tree profiles in components for turbo machinery, and the programming, with Delcam s unique adaptive machining technology , of a new hybrid machine from Hamuel Maschinenbau for the remanufacturing of high-value metal components, such as turbine blades. 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.

The new fault-tolerant solution will be rolled out over the next 12 months and will include two Hughes HX central hubs and broadband satellite terminals at 600 sites in the current mecom network. To ensure maximum system stability, the second central hub will provide fully automatic redundancy as a backup. Mecom s decision to select Hughes technology was based on a successful 20-year relationship between the two companies, during which Hughes Europe has provided mecom with a flexible and easy-to-integrate system. Ulrich Wiehsalla, managing director of mecom, said, Our very demanding customers expect from mecom not only a highly reliable, highly topical, and simultaneous supply of content, but they also pay particular attention to authenticity. They want to be certain that they receive the content issued, for example, by the German press agency (dpa) with a 100% guarantee. Especially in the area of security services, it is essential that mecom continues to function effectively, even in a crisis situation where public networks are not working. We have done this in the past and want to ensure we maintain this in the future. Providing a closed network for hundreds of receivers on a single central hub allows mecom to realise operational and maintenance benefits on a high-quality network at optimal cost. As part of the new agreement, Hughes will also provide comprehensive hardware support. This new contract with mecom is a testament to how Hughes technical innovation and exceptional customer service results in a high degree of customer loyalty, said Chris O’Dell, vice president of sales and marketing, Hughes Europe. Our teams worked closely together to create a high availability solution tailor-made to mecoms most demanding requirements in an environment where a few seconds delay in the transmission of messages may have significant economic implications. The Hughes HX System will support the transmission of satellite services through a new mecomTransmit Server . This new initiative was presented for the first time at the World Publishing Expo 2013 (IFRA Expo & Conference) in Berlin in early October, the world’s leading trade exhibition for news publishers.
