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.

57% Time saving in A.A. Daniel with iMachining 3D, compared to other CAM High Speed Machining


  Aerospace

.. the programming process in SolidCAM is much easier, faster and more effective, compared to the other CAM system...They were very excited to see the results with iMachining 3D

Cutting benchmark with iMachining 3D at A.A.DANIEL company


A.A. DANIEL worked with another CAM system for many years
. They are a job shop that does machining work for high-tech, electronic and aerospace parts. They have 8 CNC machines.

Two years ago A.A. Daniel bought the first seat of SolidCAM. This was due to several reasons:

  1. The support they received from local reseller of the other CAM was not good.
  2. CAD of other CAM system is very problematic (most job shops here work in CAD with SolidWorks)
  3. It is difficult to find here a CNC programmer that knows the other CAM system, as SolidCAM is the prevalent, dominant CAM product in the Industry (65% of market) and in Technical Education (90% of market)

They worked with the first seat of SolidCAM for a year and a half, and were very satisfied.

They saw that the programming process in SolidCAM is much easier, faster and more effective, compared to the other CAM system.

Following that, A.A. Daniel purchased an additional seat of SolidCAM (two months ago).

When I installed the 2nd SolidCAM seat, I told them about the power of iMachining, and we decided to cut a part on their machine with iMachining.

They called me on Thursday, and said they have two parts, on which they would like to try iMachining. The first part was from Kovar material (iron-nickel-cobalt alloy) and the second part was Titanium.

Today we did the iMachining cutting of the first part in Kovar material.


CNC Machine: MITSUBISHI-SV130

Tool: Iscar, diameter 16 mm, 5 teeth.

They did this part with the other CAM High Speed Machining module and had to work hard to get the tool path they wanted.

The time of other CAM High Speed machining module: 56 min.

With SolidCAM iMachining, using the Technology Wizard, I programmed the part very quickly.


The time of SolidCAM iMachining 3D (Level 5): 24 minutes. Time saving of iMachining compared to other CAM High Speed Machining: 57% saving

They were very excited to see the results with iMachining 3D.

Before purchasing the iMachining module, they requested to also have a demonstration of the 2nd part in Titanium, with iMachining 3D.

I believe that after the 2nd cut, they will surely buy the iMachining module.

Evgeny Lamez,
