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 for mold machining at Euromold 2013


  Regular News

...In SolidCAM’s latest version, there have been major enhancements in its revolutionary iMachining 3D, HSM and Simultaneous 5 Axis modules, that provide the winning combination for mold and insert machining...

SolidCAM will be exhibiting at Euromold 2013, the leading event in the areas of moldmaking and tooling, design and application development. From December 03-06, the fair will be held at Frankfurt/Main Exhibition Center. SolidCAM will exhibit in hall 8, booth J134. SolidCAM will be showing live cutting in our booth, on a Grob machine, using Hoffman tools.

This year, it’s Euromold’s 20th year and what better opportunity for SolidCAM, The Leader in Integrated CAM, to present its latest and greatest contributions to machining in the moldmaking industry.

Moldmaking is a competitive industry and its main challenge is short delivery times. In this industry it is necessary to combine excellent toolpath quality with optimal performance.  SolidCAM has an excellent CAM solution for any factory in the moldmaking industry. In SolidCAM’s latest version, there have been major enhancements in its revolutionary iMachining 3D, HSM and Simultaneous 5 Axis modules, that provide the winning combination for mold and insert machining.

iMachining 3D
automatically produces a complete, ready to run CNC program, with optimal cutting conditions to rough, rest rough and semi-finish a complete 3D part, with True Scallop on all slopes, all in a single operation. The tool path is automatically adjusted to avoid collisions between the holder and the updated stock at every stage.  The optimal cutting conditions are achieved by the expert knowledge based Technology Wizard of iMachining.

iMachining 3D provides amazing 3D machining results, regularly providing 70% savings in machining time, and can reach up to 90% savings, compared to other systems.

SolidCAM's HSM module provides the best 3D finish toolpath for any mold or insert part. The result of HSM is an efficient and smooth toolpath, translating to the best surface quality.
HSM avoids sharp angles in tool path, ensuring that the tool stays in contact with part as much as possible, and optimizing non-machining moves to reduce air cutting and generating smooth and tangential lead in/out.

You can also benefit from SolidCAM’s Simultaneous 5 Axis - the most tested and proven 5-axis CNC milling toolpaths in the industry, with the most advanced control over all aspects of toolpath and collision checking and with a very friendly user interface.

The latest enhancements in SolidCAM’s Simultaneous 5 Axis modules include multi-axis drill Contour 5 Axis and enhancement to Convert HSM to Sim 5 Axis strategy. In Contour 5 axis, the tool follows the selected 3D curve, staying parallel to predefined tilting lines. This is useful for chamfering and pencil machining of complex contours with undercuts. 

Since  a lot of mold shops are introducing sim 5x machines, the Convert HSM to Sim 5 axis strategy enables conversion of 3D HSM toolpath to full 5x toolpath. This achieves better surface quality by using different tool tilting strategies and short tools.
