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.

Hi Emil,

I thought I would share a great story with you that you can feel free to pass on to other teams around the globe if you wish.

I recently was contacted by a prospect located just outside of Houston TX in the US. The prospect saw some iMachining videos on You Tube and was curious about iMachining. We set up an Internet demonstration for them and Ken Merritt from our US team did a great job of leading with iMachining and showing them a lot of very powerful tools in the demo - we also showed them some actual cutting videos that Ken had made at a customer site just recently. When we were finished with the demo, they had asked for a quote for 2 seats of 3D Milling with iMachining, HSM, and 4th axis Simultaneous, bundled with SolidWorks. This was a very decent sized quote.

About a week later the owner of the company called me. We had a very good conversation at this time as he was considering 2 other competing CAM systems. He told me directly that really except for iMachining, our system was just like all the other integrated packages. I told him for the most part, he was right and all the packages do things a little differently but they all get the job done. I told him that only we have iMachining though and that we have many customers already praising the new module.

He called back later and placed an order with us for the 2 seats using his credit card. I think this is one of the fastest orders I have ever gotten and it is all due to iMachining and a great team that developed it, can market it, show it, and support it!

It was interesting that the customer told me after the order was placed, that he was even pitched another CAM software from the reseller that sold him the SW (something that is often hard to compete against) but he said he was not having it. For him, he saw the value of iMachining. He even told me how he always felt that his company (he was the President of the company), in the OIL and Gas business, was always on the leading edge of technology but for some reason, he had stayed with wireframe CAD for way too many years and wished he would have moved up to solid Modeling 15 years ago. He told me that seeing iMachining finally pushed him to get the SolidCAM program - he now feels he will be back up in the front of the pack again. I know I am very excited about iMachining and push it every chance I get!!
