April 2014 - Another success for SolidCAM’s iMachining, this time at Industrie Paris, France’s largest manufacturing technologies event, where SolidCAM exhibited the unique and patented iMachining, at live cuttings throughout the fair.
The revolutionary technology of iMachining 2D and iMachining 3D attracted many visitors who wanted to see how they can save 70% and more in machining time and extend their tool life dramatically.
The live cuttings were done with parts from 6060 aluminum, XC48 steel and stainless steel 304, on a 3-axis Samsung SMEC LCV500 machine, using cutting tools from Hoffmann Group.
The company also launched the new software version of SolidCAM 2014, which is the complete, ‘best-in-class’ Manufacturing Suite for efficient and profitable CNC-Programming inside SolidWorks.
SolidCAM 2014, released at the beginning of the month includes improvements and enhancements throughout its modules: iMachining 2D & 3D, 2.5D Milling, HSS, HSR/ HSM, Indexial multi sided milling, Simultaneous 5x milling, Turning, Advanced Mill-Turn, Solid Probe and WireEDM.
"The impact on participants during this type of event is an important indicator of the quality of our machining solution. This confirms that our CAD/CAM software is at the forefront of the machining technology and our customers gain a competitive advantage in manufacturing", said Jean-Philippe Hervé, Manager of SolidCAM France.
He also summed up the fair and stated that "overall we are satisfied with the results of the fair. We obtained many important contacts. The interest in SolidCAM and iMachining is huge and suggests a good business suit. The positive reactions we received for our products, our work, and our technical support, strengthens our motivation to continue and deliver the best manufacturing solutions for our customers."
