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.

SolidCAM to reveal new Electrode solution for Mold Makers at SolidWorks World 2009


  Regular News

...The Automated Electrode functionality is yet another tool SolidCAM offers our customers to remain ahead of the pack

SolidCAM®, the leading and fastest-growing CAM system running in SolidWorks® 3D CAD software, will reveal their latest highly-automated electrode design and manufacturing solution at SolidWorks World 2009.   This new capability for Moldmakers is totally integrated in SolidWorks and is directly in line with the automation theme at SolidWorks World 2009 International User Conference and Exposition.  Held February 8 - 11, in Orlando, FL at the Walt Disney® World Swan & Dolphin, SolidWorks World is the world’s largest annual 3D CAD event.

SolidCAM is the Gold-Certified integrated CAM engine running inside SolidWorks® software and provides seamless, single-window integration and full associativity with SolidWorks.  Sidney Eisner, better known as the “SolidCAM Professor”, will be on hand to show and explain the power and time savings of Automated Electrode Machining in booth 610 of the Prtner Pavilion.  This will also accompany other major advances featured in the preview of SolidCAM 2009.  SolidCAM’s electrode solution automates time-consuming and repetitive tasks in the Electrode Design and Manufacturing process, including geometry extraction, documentation and machining.

Electrode Design Automation - SolidCAM facilitates the design of 3D solid electrodes from flexible surface extensions. The software offers an easy to follow, step-by-step process and addresses all types of electrodes from the common to the most complex. It supports existing libraries of blanks and holders as well as professional documentation for the  operator. Even the most experienced electrode designer will benefit from the knowledge-driven automation provided by SolidCAM.


Electrode Manufacturing Automation - Once the electrode design is finished, SolidCAM starts the machining of the electrode in the SolidWorks window. SolidCAM supports a wide range of 2.5D milling, 3D milling and HSM strategies to manufacture  every type of electrode. SolidCAM supports the generation of rough and finish electrodes and leverages the use of templates of machining strategies to generate optimal and efficient toolpaths.


SolidCAM’s Electrode solution provides the right combination of automation and user-control to finish the electrodes with high quality and in time. Emil Somekh, Founder and Managing Director of SolidCAM, explained, “The battle for competitive and efficient production must be fought on many fronts and is the deciding factor in survival for modern manufacturing companies. Automation is the key weapon of attack and must be leveraged in as many areas of design and manufacturing as possible.  Those companies that survive and thrive in today’s manufacturing jungle must win the battles for efficiency in every aspect of their business operations.  They must simply find the best tools to ensure they stay ahead of their competitors.  The Automated Electrode functionality is yet another tool SolidCAM offers our customers to remain ahead of the pack“.
 
Wolfgang Mueller, SolidCAM’s Vice President Sales Europe, states, “SolidCAM’s Electrode solution is the result of an intensive joint development between Manusoft Technologies Pte Ltd., the developer of IMOLD, mold design and assembly system software integrated in SolidWorks, and SolidCAM, the world leader in integrated CAM solutions.  Both companies are SolidWorks Gold partners (the highest level of SolidWorks integration) and teamed up to develop a comprehensive solution for the production of electrodes - one of the most delicate and complex tasks within Moldmaking.  By automating the whole electrode process from the design to the manufacturing, we enable moldmakers to reduce costs and lead-times. We are very pleased to release this innovative solution at the SolidWorks World 2009 conference and exhibition.”
