SolidCAM Mill-Turn & Swiss in Modern Machine Shop

See the latest article in Modern Machine Shop to learn about SolidCAM's Advanced Mill-Turn & Swiss-Type Solutions.

SolidCAM & iMachining - The Unique, Unbeatable CAM Solution that Provides You with the Best Value & Makes You the Most Money!

SolidCAM is the leading Integrated CAM software which runs directly inside SOLIDWORKS and Autodesk Inventor, with seamless integration and full tool path associativity.

With the single-window integration, all machining operations can be defined and verified without leaving the parametric CAD assembly environment you're used to.

SolidCAM is the only CAM with the unmatched, patented iMachining solution, and also supports all Milling and Turning functionality, with powerful support for advanced Mill-Turn machines, including Swiss-Type.

SolidCAM's iMachining provide unbelievable savings and increased efficiency in your CNC milling operations. With its patented “morphing spirals”, intelligent island separation and Moating, iMachining provides you with the shortest cycle times in the industry.

iMachining's unbelievable cycle time savings and unmatched tool life extension drastically increases the productivity and profit of your machines.

iMachining's patented Technology Wizard provides automatic, optimal feed and speed values for different materials and CNC machines.

SolidCAM is the perfect solution for your present or future multi-tasking machining needs, with ultimate programming flexibility and configurability. Program multi-turret and spindle operations with full turret synchronization, and watch SolidCAM's simulation of your material being machined in multiple stages, transferring from spindle to spindle without user intervention.

SolidCAM provides powerful, easy-to-learn and use programming tools covering the full range of Mill-Turn machines. Plus, SolidCAM completely supports Swiss-Type Mill-Turn machines including multi-channel synchronization.

Imagine putting the knowledge and experience of hundreds of CAM and CNC masters in the palm of your hand – Experience iMachining Wizard and Tool Path!

  • Saves 70% and More in CNC Machining Time

    Material Removal Rates soar for every tool and insert - even with small diameter tools, you can use a full depth of cut, using the entire length of the tool in one pass. One of a kind optimized tool paths push cutting speed and productivity even further. Get the maximum potential from your existing machines - many of our customers even cancel their new CNC machine orders!

  • Drastically Extends Cutting Tool Life

    Many of our customers tell us they have reduced their replacement tool orders both in frequency and volume - greatly adding to their bottom line.

  • Avoid the Guesswork of Optimum CNC Settings with the Unique iMachining Technology Wizard

    The patented Technology Wizard provides automatically optimized feed & speed values resulting in much shorter and simpler programming procedures for greatly increased programming productivity. Get it right, the first time ... everytime.

iMachining - The revolution in CAM and CNC machining, launches at EMO 2011


  Regular News

...already proven as a revolution in the world of Metal Cutting throughout its world-wide pre-release, makes its official unveiling at the upcoming EMO 2011

iMachining from SolidCAM, already proven as a revolution in the world of Metal Cutting throughout its world-wide pre-release, makes its official unveiling at the upcoming EMO 2011 show in Hannover Germany, September 19 to the 24th.

EMO attendees will see firsthand how SolidCAM’s iMachining delivers an entirely new level of metal cutting performance that enables every CAM user to bring 21st century technology right into every machine shop, for nearly all types of parts, machines, cutters and materials.

Expertly guided by the exclusive "Technology Wizard", iMachining users get unmatched shortened cycle times, extended tool life, programming speed and the ability to use even the smallest tools in cutting the hardest materials, right at their fingertips.

Seeing is believing, as iMachining shows all visitors how it can save them 70% of machining time and more, dramatically extend tool life and simplify CAM programming, all in real-time, live cutting demonstrations. <//a>For those looking to join the iMachining revolution, learn more about the ease of use and the real productivity enhancements of iMachining and see actual live iMachining cutting, visit the SolidCAM booth at the EMO, Stand J08 in Hall 25. For live examples of iMachining cutting, you can also visit Youtube, Facebook, Twitter and the SolidCAM website.

iMachining – under the hood

SolidCAM's iMachining differs from and surpasses other CAM-Systems, both in ease of programming and the quality of the toolpaths, generated by its exclusive algorithms. Unlike other CAM systems that leave users guessing at machining parameters like Speeds and Feeds, iMachining uses a patented "Technology Wizard" that guides users through all steps to optimize the production job. With the Wizard, iMachining uses tool length, diameter and number and angle of flutes, together with material and machine properties, to generate smooth morphing spiral toolpaths which ensure constant cutting force on the tool. The calculated CNC-programs avoid parallel and lateral offsets, continuous repositioning and time-consuming air cutting movements like insertion, retraction and withdrawing. The results are significantly higher metal removal rates and also reduced load and wear on the tools and machines. Users enjoy shorter cutting-times for increased machine productivity, longer tool life, better process stability, reduced machine wear and the best surface quality to reduce re-work.

Emil Somekh, Founder and Managing Director of SolidCAM Ltd. (right) and Mickey Berman (left), Chief Scientist of iMachining technology at SolidCAM, regard iMachining as a “revolutionary leap” for the metal cutting industry .
Live performance: At the SolidCAM booth, J08, in Hall 25, EMO visitors will experience live iMachining and see with their own eyes the incredible performance of metal cutting on a milling center.
Blue Chips: iMachining's Technology Wizard guides the user through all steps to define a fast, safe cutting job. The resulting uniformity and also the blue color of the chips are the hallmarks of correct High Speed Machining and efficient heat removal c
Deep cuts: Whenever possible, SolidCAM’s iMachining calculates toolpaths that use the whole length of the tools' flute for cutting, with matching cutting conditions, ensuring smooth, even cutting forces, at all points along the cut.
