A Special Message from Edgecam by Vero Software

Edgecam is a complete CAM software solution for solids manufacturing



Production Milling - Edgecam provides the production machine shop with a wide range of flexible milling cycles. Machining efficiency is maximized on simple and complex prismatic parts as well as those incorporating sculptured surface geometry. With Edgecam you get prismatic machining combined with powerful 3D solid and surface machining strategies, all in one complete solution.

4- and 5- Axis simultaneous machining - Edgecam 4 and 5-Axis milling products are designed to meet the production machining requirements of industries such as aerospace, automotive, medical and oil & gas. 4- and 5-Axis simultaneous machining offers key advantages over conventional indexed 3-Axis machining:

  • Reduced cycle time by machining complex components using a single setup. In addition to time savings improved accuracy can also be achieved as the potential for positioning errors between setups is eliminated.
  • Improved surface finish and extended tool life by tilting the tool to maintain the optimum tool to part contact point at all times.
  • Improved access to undercuts and deep pockets through tilting the tool or component allows shorter series tooling to be employed, further improving the surface finish and eliminating the need for secondary setups.

The ability to machine complex parts from solid that would previously have to be cast. This approach is highly beneficial for prototypes and small volume runs and is particular applicable with the latest Mill/Turn machines.


Edgecam Turning provides functionality for a wide range of machine tools, including 2-axis lathes, multi-turret configurations, sub-spindle turning centers and mill/turn machines. On a mill/turn machine, C-, Y- and B-axis milling and drilling take place within the same program as the turning to provide a fully integrated and associative programming solution.

Ease of use and an understanding that cycle times are critical, especially on multi-configuration mill/turn machines, underpin the development of Edgecam’s turning functionality.

Edgecam produces advanced rough and finish turning cycles, together with support for facing, boring and drilling in either canned cycle or longhand format. Toolpath calculation takes into consideration the complete tooling insert and previously machined material to avoid gouging and eliminate air cutting.

Edgecam offers support for Sandvik Coromant Wiper inserts for turning tools, allowing these productivity enhancing inserts to be used reliably in all aspects of production machining.


Edgecam includes an easy-to-use multi-axis turning module for programming sub-spindle lathes. As with multi-turret machine configurations, cycle time and the ability to turn a part completely in one operation are of paramount importance when working with sub-spindle lathes.
