The only CAM with the unmatched, patented iMachining solution, SolidCAM promises to support the complete range of major manufacturing applications including all Milling and Turning functionalities with powerful support for advanced Mill-Turn machines, including Swiss-Type.
It 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.
Benefits of using SolidCAM in SOLIDWORKS
Works right inside your existing CAD: Seamless integration in SOLIDWORKS
Full Associativity: Design changes initiate automatic tool path updates
Eliminates import/export challenges: Saves large amount of time and frustration
Gets you up to speed fastest: Extremely short learning curve because you are already familiar with SolidCAM’s interface since it runs right inside SOLIDWORKS
Get the full picture: SolidCAM works in the CAD assembly mode to graphically show Fixtures, Tooling & Vices in simulations
SolidCAM provides a powerful, easy-to-use, complete, integrated CAD/CAM solution that supports the complete range of major manufacturing applications, including iMachining 2D, iMachining 3D, 2.5D Milling, High Speed Surface milling, 3D Milling/High-Speed Machining, Multi-sided Indexial 4/5 axes Milling, Simultaneous 5 axes Milling, Turning, Mill-Turn and Solid Probe.
Its revolutionary, patented iMachining technology saves 70 percent in CNC machining time and more, while drastically extending tool life. The iMachining Technology Wizard provides a powerful partner for automatically determining feeds and speeds and other machining parameters. iMachining provides unbelievable savings and increased efficiency for your CNC milling operations, translating into profits and success.
Get the Most Out of High-End Multi-Tasking CNC Machines
One may either have a multi-spindle/multi-turret CNC machine, or want one. SolidCAM is the perfect solution for the present or future multi-tasking machining needs, with the ultimate in programming flexibility and configurability. Program multi-turret and multi-spindle operations, with full turret synchronization and watch SolidCAM’s simulation of the material being machined in multiple stages, transferring from spindle to spindle without user intervention - stock is inserted at one end, complex finished parts come out the other.
It provides powerful programming tools that are easy-to-learn and use, covering the full range of 4/5-Axis Simultaneous Mill Turn machines and supports Swiss-Type Mill-Turn Machines including multi-channel synchronization.
It easily handles tail stocks, steady rest, mutiple spindles, rotary and linear turrets, along with multiple rotary and linear axes. In this high-collision potential environment, the programming of these machines is made simple and safe by utilizing SolidCAM’s turning and milling operations right inside the CAD assembly.
