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 successes at Customers

Golan Industries is a northern plant of Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI). The factory has been producing aviation parts, especially aircraft seats, and has been programming its parts with SolidCAM software for many years.

The most common material in aviation production at the factory is Aluminum 7075, as well as 6061.

For many years we tried to convince the chief engineer on the necessity of iMachining module for the factory. However, because of the deep professionalism and long years of experience of the chief programmer, who works with SolidCAM and achieves extraordinary results, he was too confident that he does not need iMachining.

But we did not give up and knew that the day of iMachining would come.

Indeed, about a month ago, we were called upon to perform joint programming with the chief programmer, who expressed a willingness to see the capabilities of iMachining again.

The part is made of Aluminum 7075, in size 450-320-90, and was machined with a HERMLE E-C400 machine, with Iscar tools.

The result we got is 80 minutes of cutting time, with most of the programming made with iMachining3D, compared to 120 minutes, performed in the usual processing.

But what additionally convinced the technologist of the factory, beyond the cutting time reduction, was the stability of the machine, while cutting with iMachining, a stable cutting without vibrations, while extending dramatically the life of the cutting tools - a fantastic combination of great benefits!

The factory purchased the full iMachining 2D/3D modules for 2 seats.
