SolidCAM's HSR/HSM modules for 3D High Speed Millling

Powerful Roughing and Finest finish toolpaths available for 3D machining.

  • Experience 3D machining taken to an entirely new level of smoothness, efficiency and smart machining, with the finest toolpaths available anywhere for 3D machining.
  • SolidCAM's HSR/HSM module is a very powerful and market-proven 3D high speed machining module for complex 3D parts, aerospace parts, molds, tools and dies.
  • It offers unique machining and linking strategies for generating 3D high speed toolpaths. It smooths the paths of both cutting moves and retracts, wherever possible, to maintain a continuous machine tool motion - an essential requirement for maintaining higher feed rates and eliminating dwelling.

HSM takes 3D Machining to the highest possible level!

  • With SolidCAM's 3D Mill/HSM module retracts to high Z levels are kept to a minimum. Angled where possible, smoothed by arcs, retracts do not go any higher than necessary, minimizing air cutting and reducing machining time.
  • The result of 3D Mill/HSM is an efficient and smooth toolpath that translates to increased surface quality, less wear on your tools and a longer life for your machine tools.
  • With demands for ever-shorter lead and production times, lower costs and improved quality, High Speed Machining is a must in today's machine shops.

HSR – High Speed Roughing

  • SolidCAM HSR provides powerful high-speed roughing strategies including contour, hatch, hybrid rib roughing and rest roughing.

HSM - High Speed Finishing

  • The SolidCAM HSM module features several enhancements to CAM technology that makes high speed operations possible, including avoiding sharp angles in tool path,ensuring that the tool stays in contact with part as much as possible, and optimizing non-machining moves to reduce air cutting and generating smooth and tangential lead in/out.
  • Any HSM 3D machining strategy can be controlled by specifying the surface slope angle to be machined or by specifying the machining boundary. A comprehensive set of boundary creation tools are provided, including silhouette boundaries, cutter contact area boundaries , shallow boundaries , theoretical Rest area boundaries, rest boundaries and user defined boundaries.

  • SolidCAM HSM module is a powerful solution for all users who demand advanced high speed machining capabilities. It can also be used to improve the productivity of older CNC’s with reduced air cutting and smoothing arcs that maintain continuous tool motion.
  • Let us show you how HSM takes 3D Machining performance to the highest best level, all with your current machines.
