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 works with OKK and Tungaloy at MECT 2013, Japan


  Regular News

...OKK and Tungaloy appreciate the power of SolidCAM, which led to the collaboration at MECT 2013...

SolidCAM’s Japanese reseller Tactx collaborated with OKK and Tungaloy at the recent MECT 2013 exhibition in Nagoya, Japan. The biennial show, which has been running since 1987 is the country’s largest for machinery, CAD/CAM, tooling and associated equipment, and this year welcomed 93,741 visitors.

Sharing the OKK booth, Tactx used SolidCAM iMachining to program a demonstration part, for the exhibition, to show off the capabilities of the OKK HMC 400. This machine was set up for live cutting at the show to include a video screen, to make it easy to see the machining in progress.

At the Tungaloy booth, visitors could see the latest Tunghold and Tungcap tooling systems as well as the company’s range of inserts and carbide tools and, at the same time, pick up information on SolidCAM.

Both OKK and Tungaloy appreciate the power of SolidCAM, which led to the collaboration at MECT 2013. The software’s patented iMachining and Technology Wizard is unique within the industry and routinely produces cycle time reductions of 70%. In addition, because tool loadings are controlled and steady, tool life is increased and very small cutters can be used without the risk of breakage.

Ease of use is a major factor for Japanese engineers, allowing them to make the best use of their time. SolidCAM offers some major advantages in this respect, as it has been a SolidWorks Gold Partner for more than ten years. The integration between the two products is seamless, enabling users to work within a familiar intuitive environment. They can then generate optimized CNC programs far more quickly and use the time saved to examine and improve other aspects of the production process.

For multi-axis applications, SolidCAM enables Japanese machinists to program the most complex mill-turn centers and 5-axis machining centers. Strategies and simulation cover every area of these processes including indexing and simultaneous 5-axis cutting. iMachining 3D, which can be used in mill-turn and indexing, makes it possible to achieve very high metal removal rates. Customers frequently report cycle time reductions of up to 90%.

Overall, 488 people came to the OKK booth, making it a very successful show for both OKK and SolidCAM’s reseller Tactx, reinforcing the partnership and helping Japanese engineers to understand what can be achieved with advanced machinery, tooling and CAD/CAM software.
