Geometric Ltd. will preview the latest version of its revolutionary solids-based CNC programming solution, CAMWorks® 2013. The first SolidWorks® gold partner CAM system, CAMWorks continues to challenge traditional programming methods. The combination of its patented automatic feature recognition technology and state-of-the-art knowledge based machining, helps users reduce programming time from hours to minutes or even seconds.
CAMWorks 2013 raises the bar with several enhancements including a new Synchronous Machining Module (SMM) focused on simplifying programming of complex mill-turn machines. A first for the CAM industry, CAMWorks 2013 will also introduce the first cost effective true G-code machine simulator, giving its users the ability to create ‘first time right’ programs for mill-turn and other complex multi-axis machines.
Looking beyond into the future, CAMWorks 2013 provides users with the capability to fully automate CNC programming not only for families of parts, but also for families of features regardless of part configuration to simplify the 'Order-to-Part' process. To make this a reality, CAMWorks provides its users with full tool-path to solid model associativity, the ability to capture best practices of their best programmers and machinist, and a rich set of APIs allowing its users to automate the entire CNC programming process. Just as parametric, feature based solid modelling revolutionized mechanical design, CAMWorks parametric, feature based technology is revolutionizing CNC programming.
Geometric will be at IMTS 2012 in Booth E-3330.
