Enable high-precision programming for Swiss-type lathes and turn-mills

Why PartMaker?

PartMaker was developed for Swiss lathes and supports the techniques commonly used by Swiss programmers.

  • Precision programming gives you fine control over your machine and provides clarity during the programming of turning with live tooling.
  • Swiss specific functionality gives you several options to manufacture your parts based on your available tooling and batch size.
  • Quick process synchronization automatically inserts wait and queue codes into your NC programs for an efficient cycle time, with minimal effort.

Expert Knowledge

NexGenCAM has strong in-house knowledge of programming and implementing software for Swiss lathes through established relationships with many machine tool manufacturers. This helps to ensure our post-processors generate accurate NC code for your machines. Due to this focus, many leading users of Swiss-type lathes have chosen to standardize with PartMaker.

Greater Flexibility

PartMaker is available as part of FeatureCAM® Ultimate, bringing together technology to deliver our highest level of capabilities for production machining. This single package includes:

  • PartMaker software for high precision programming for Swiss-type lathes.
  • FeatureCAM software for automated CNC programming.

FeatureCAM Ultimate gives you access to the best of both. You can choose between using either PartMaker, FeatureCAM or a combination of the two to suit your needs and preferences.

NEED TRAINING?

Essentials/Intermediate

PartMaker Essentials/Intermediate

Description: Essentials covers an intro to knowledge-based Swiss Style and Turn/Mill programming and an overview of the best workflows to programming effectively - import, extraction, simulation, milling, along with basic and advanced strategies. This includes setup, tool libraries, cycles libraries, and the use of the process table to order, edit and synchronize toolpaths between the main and sub spindles. At the end of the course is a 1 day lab, where each student will apply the skills to their parts to demonstrate proficiency.

Type: Web/Remote
Pre-Requisites: None
Course Length: 3 days

Advanced Machining

PartMaker Advanced Machining

Description: This 3D advanced class includes 3D roughing and finishing techniques. Roughing techniques include model area clearance with the model and vortex machining. Finishing strategies include raster, 3D offset, rest machining, pencil trace, and corner finishing. 5 axis positioning with 3+2 tool tilt and 5-axis simultaneous swarfing is also taught as a part of this class. At the end of the course is a 1 day lab, where each student will apply the skills to their parts to demonstrate proficiency.

Type: Web/Remote
