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.
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.
