Software provider SwooshTec offers Version 6 of Siemens PLM Software’s CAM Express, full-function numerical control programming software.
The updated software includes more capabilities across the critical three-axis machining application space, including specific high speed machining approaches to enable simplified tricky tracing cuts with new cutting strategies for curve/edge and 3D profile cutting. It also enables smoother finish cuts with specialized point distribution in three-axis surface milling. The update also features more effective tool paths due to new editing and dividing techniques apply shorter, stouter tools for deep cavities.
In feature-based automation, Version 6 brings Tecnomatrix software technology to feature recognition and rule development to enable feature-based machining driven by configurable rules. Incremental process steps are defined and organized in a new Machining Knowledge Editor, without writing code or editing scripts. Version 6 provides direct programming of Renishaw problign cycles, including the support of special solid tool representations and machine simulation of probing cycles.
