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 and IST Sistemas enable top Brazilian motor sport company JL Racing to reduce machining times by 50%


  Automotive

...we reduced the manufacturing time by approximately 50%, and still keep the quality we wanted...

CEO and Founder of SolidCAM, Dr. Emil Somekh, paid a special visit to Brazilian racing Stock Car manufacturer JL Racing. The visit, organized by SolidCAM’s distributor in Brazil, IST Sistemas, was aimed at strengthening the partnership between the companies.

Since SolidCAM’s installation in JL Racing by IST Sistemas in November 2013, shorter cycle times by 50% were achieved in the manufacturing of JL Racing metal parts

JL Racing was founded in Brazil in 1990, and its initial involvement in motor sport was the production of racing karts, where it won major championships five years in a row.

Since then, it has expanded its portfolio and in the year 2000 began manufacturing parts for racing Stock Cars, developing new tubular chassis for several categories of Stock Car and expanding its engine maintenance operations. In 2004 its prototype endurance vehicle, JL-P1 was in pole position on its debut run in the famous sports car endurance race - Mil Milhas Brasil. 

  • Gustavo Lehto Gomes, Engineering Coordinator of JL Racing Products:
    "Last year, we developed a new sleeve component. Initially, it seemed that for us to deliver the part in time, we would need to outsource its manufacturing, which would result in a cost increase...

    ...Before making a decision, we consulted with IST Sistemas. Its engineers explained the advantages and benefits of SolidCAM and how its revolutionary iMachining technology could save 70% in CNC machining time and more, and give dramatically extended tool life.

    ...We tested the software and were impressed with the results – we were able to reduce the manufacturing time by approximately 50%, and still keep the quality we wanted. SolidCAM iMachining made it possible for us to finalize the project on time without having to outsource it.” 


A key ingredient of SolidCAM’s strategy is its commitment to its Gold certified seamless integration in SolidWorks. IST Sistemas is a distributor of SolidWorks in Brazil, and supplied SolidWorks CAD system in use for design at JL Racing.

  • Dr. Emil Somekh, SolidCAM CEO:
    SolidCAM is seamlessly integrated in SolidWorks, enabling full associativity between the CAD developed projects and the machining itself. For JL Racing this integration makes it possible for the company to execute rapid design and manufacturing developments, a common feature in motor sport."
  • Alvaro Marzola, Director of IST Sistemas:
    “SolidCAM provides all the benefits manufacturing businesses need to improve and achieve the competitive edge they need for success. SolidCAM + SolidWorks is the complete integrated CAD/CAM solution and, with its amazing iMachining, can reduce machining time by 70% and more."
