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.

MicroPoint Pro Chooses SolidCAM as Their Swiss-Type CAM Partner


  Customer feedback

MicroPoint Pro (mpptools.com) manufactures special machines to create electronics chips for computing and the cellular field. The parts produced in the CNC department are small and require a variety of CNC machines such as: Milling up to 5 axes, Lathes, Wire-Cut, Grinders, and more.

For design, the company uses SOLIDWORKS. So, it's natural that they chose SolidCAM as their  CAM solution in 2010.

Recently, the company decided to enter the new field of Swiss-Type to manufacture small parts in large quantities, eliminating the need to outsource these parts to subcontractors, as was done before.

Micro Point purchased a new Wivia V268 Swiss-type machine. For a Swiss CAM solution, they obviously contacted us, as their longtime reliable SolidCAM partner, and also contacted Cimatron for their GibbsCAM solution.

GibbsCAM's software was demonstrated first. Micro Point's main impression from the GibbsCAM demo was slander and putting down the SolidCAM's Swiss solution, which had the complete opposite effect GibbsCAM desired.

In the SolidCAM demonstration, which took place at Micro Point's factory, we presented a perfect Swiss CAM solution and said nothing about the competing software. Instead, we simply emphasized the amazing advantages of our SolidCAM Swiss-Type solution, its seamless integration and associativity to SOLIDWORKS and its remarkable success worldwide.

A customer unfamiliar with Swiss-Type technology cannot work with a CAM solution that is only good up to 80-90%, with the rest of the work needed to be done, by manually editing the Gcode. A Swiss CAM solution must be 100%, including Multi-Channel Synchronization, Simulation, and a perfect Gcode program.

Micro Point obviously chose SolidCAM, immediately after the demonstration. Important conclusions to be deduced from the above process are as follows:

  1. 100% complete CAM solution is a MUST for real support of Swiss-Type CNCs.
  2. Indiscriminate lack of appreciation for competing software is seen as non-objective, unreliable slander and can create the complete opposite effect.
  3. When a veteran SolidCAM customer, who is happy with our Milling, Turning, and Mill-Turn solutions, including our seamless integration and associativity to SOLIDWORKS, as well as with our technical and postprocessor support, decides to introduce Swiss CNC machines into his shop, SolidCAM is the natural, perfect partner to provide him with the absolute best Swiss CAM solution.

This scenario of our existing SolidCAM customers adding Swiss CNC machines, to enhance their manufacturing capabilities, is happening worldwide at an increasing rate. SolidCAM's Swiss-Type CAM solution is obviously the absolute best solution for them!
