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.

SolidCAM presents enhanced automation tools for moldmakers at the Euromold exhibition


  Company

SolidCAM, the leaders in Integrated CAM, will exhibit at the Euromold show in Frankfurt, the World Fair for Moldmaking and Tooling, Design and Application Development. In this year Euromold will focus on “Automation within Moldmaking and Tooling”. Together with its German reseller DPS Software, SolidCAM will demonstrate on 6 seats the highlights of the upcoming version SolidCAM 2010, that increases the efficiency in mold and toolmaking.

SolidCAM 2010 is seamlessly integrated in the 3D CAD system SolidWorks 2010, that is widely used for 3D product and mold design. Through single-window integration, all machining calculations are defined, calculated and verified in the SolidWorks 2010 CAD environment. All geometries used for machining are fully associative with the mold design model. When the geome-try of the mold design is modified, the SolidCAM software enables the user to automatically synchronize all machining operations with the updated geometry. The seamless integration can increase moldmakers´ productivity by more than 40 %.

SolidCAM has further enhanced its “Electrode Solution”, that automates time-consuming and repetitive tasks for electrode extraction, documentation and machining. Electrode makers can now easily and quickly design electrodes utilizing new, advanced surfacing functions. Solid-CAM 2010 identifies burn areas by interactive-automated recognition of bosses and easily extends tangential surfaces to shape the electrode. New options are available for adding extension distance with multiple vertical, angular or tangential extensions. SolidCAM 2010 contains also enhancements for the High-speed Machining (HSM) of electrodes and a new suboperation for the 5-axis Simultaneous Machining of complex electrodes.

The calculation and simulation of large molds will be further accelerated in SolidCAM 2010 due to the support of 64 Bit Computing. SolidCAM 2010 provides an interactive tool path editor that enables toolmakers the manual editing of the tool path for better control.

 The new version features an automated 5-axis Drill operation, that accelerates the drilling of “Swiss cheese” type of parts. Mold makers, that have to drill hundreds of holes from various directions into their part, will benefit significantly by this new feature.

With the new version, SolidCAM will also introduce its new revolutionary cutting technology "iMachining". iMachining includes two cornerstones: Intelligent Morphing Spiral Toolpath for constant contact Machining and a Technology Wizard that drives the toolpath. By producing an optimal combination of toolpaths and cutting conditions, iMachining enables cutting through the material with much higher feed rates and larger cut depths. iMachining results in dramatically higher metal removal rates while prolonging tool life.
