SolidCAM - Complete CNC Machining Solutions Integrated into the SolidWorks
SolidCAM is the complete, ‘best-in-class’ Manufacturing Suite for efficient and profitable CNC-Programming inside SolidWorks. SolidCAM provides seamless single-window integration and full associativity with the SolidWorks design model.
SolidCAM is designed primarily for the CNC production focusing on machining. Among the most work piece materials include metals, but also plastics, wood and other alternative materials. A key feature of the program SolidCAM is the high degree of adaptability user requirements. In addition to typical problems in machining, SolidCAM can find effective application in other related production methods, which is used in CNC machine control.
SolidCAM Supports all CAM Software CNC Applications Including
2.5D MILLING - Full toolpath control and powerful algorithms ensure that the user can manufacture the way he needs to. Operations can be easily reordered, moved, rotated and mirrored.
3D MILLING - SolidCAM offers powerful 3D machining, including advanced High Speed Machining strategies and integrated rest material options. No matter how complex the model, SolidCAM provides the optimal approach and roughing strategy with superior 3D finish machining for mold and die applications.
TURNING + DRIVEN TOOLS & MILL-TURN - SolidCAM provides maximum productivity and reduced CNC-programming time for Turning, Turning with Driven Tools and for advanced grooving applications. SolidCAM provides all milling and drilling operations for driven tools on the face or the perimeter of the stock.
The use of tail stocks, steady rest, sub spindles, rotary and linear turrets along with C Axis, CY Axis and B Axis, are regular features on today’s Mill-Turn machine tools. In this collision rich environment, the programming of these machines is made simple and safe by utilizing SolidCAM’s Turning and Milling operations in a single environment.Our Turn-Mill centers are the ultimate in cost-efficiency, combining turning and milling in one reliable machine tool.
WIREEDM - SolidCAM Wire EDM handles profiles and tapers with constant and variable angles, as well as 4-axis contours. SolidCAM's intelligent algorithms prevent the falling of material pieces by automatic pocket processing. SolidCAM provides full user control of stop-points and of wire cutting conditions at any point of the profile or taper.
SIMULTANEUOUS 5-AXIS MACHINING - Simultaneous 5-axis machining is becoming more and more popular due to the need for reduced machining times, better surface finish and improved life span of tools. SolidCAM utilizes all the advantages of Simultaneous 5-Axis machining and together with collision control and machine simulation, provides a solid base for your 5-axis solution. SolidCAM provides a realistic simulation of the complete machine tool, enabling collision checking between the tool and the machine components.
Indexial 4/5 Axis Milling - Efficient and profitable machining of multi-sided parts on 4/5 axes machining centers. Also enables flexible set-ups and reduces the need for special clamping jigs and generates home position shifting calculation subroutine for controllers without this functionality.
SolidCAM's latest revolutionary iMachining (iMachining 3D) technology provides unbelievable savings and increased efficiency in your milling CNC operations, translating into profits and success for all SolidCAM customers worldwide, who bought iMachining, are enjoying these immense savings!
