Integrated CAM Software Supports Turn-Mill, Multi-Axis Cutting
SolidCAM will showcase its CAM programming solution for CNC machines directly integrated within SolidWorks and Autodesk Inventor.
Machining Module Optimizes Speeds and Feeds
SolidCAM’s iMachining technology module integrates into SolidWorks and Autodesk Inventor to save cutting time and increase tool life.
Retired Yet Inspired to Learn Machining
A retired engineer with no prior machining experience is learning how to be a machinist. His quickly increasing skillset demonstrates how new machining technology is becoming more capable and easier to pick up and apply.
CAM Suite Features Moldmaking Updates
The most recent version of SolidCAM features upgrades for mold and insert machining, including its iMachining 3D, HSM and simultaneous five-axis modules.
CAM Software Features Probe Module
SolidCAM 2013 SP2 offers enhancements across all modules, including 2.5D milling, iMachining 2D and 3D, and others, as well as a new “solid probe” module.
Webinar: Unlocking Productivity Potential from Existing Design Tools, CNC Machines and Tooling.
A free webinar sponsored by SolidCAM on Wednesday, August 28, will feature a live machining demo and showcase techniques for increasing CNC machine throughput, reducing cycle time, extending tool life and simplifying CNC programming techniques.
Inconel Meets Match in General-Purpose End Mill
This difficult Inconel application demonstrates that even some basic tool designs can perform admirably when paired with the right tool paths.
“Intelligent” CAM System Adapts to the Job
SolidCAM’s iMachining CAM software features an algorithm designed to eliminate potentially time-consuming, trial-and-error approaches to optimizing cutting parameters.
CAM Benefits Extend Beyond the Tool Path
This CAM software not only provides an effective tool path strategy, but also takes application-specific variables into account when applying that strategy.
Lights, Camera ... Cycle Start
A new show dramatically portrays real-life manufacturing and CNC machining. The pilot episode is now playing.
Machine STL Files With SolidCAM
SolidCAM has implemented STL cutting capability into SolidCAM2009. The module enables the user to directly machine STL files, which can be used in 3D scanning and rapid prototyping applications to describe 3D surface geometry. The module generates the stock box and the CAM part directly from the STL file.
Three-Step Creation Process For Inspection Program
SolidCAM describes its SolidCMM application as a complete inspection process that improves quality and reduces programming time. According to the company, an inspection program can be created in minutes. The part data (model and drawing) then can be simulated and verified in a virtual machine environment before it is transferred to the inspection machine in a standard CMM format.
Combined Strategies For High Speed Machining
SolidCAM2008 R12 incorporates more than 100 new features. Its enhanced Automatic Feature Recognition and Machining capability (AFRM) supports automatic recognition and machining of multi-level closed and open pockets in a solid model. This version offers an extended tool table for milling and links in addition to e
With over 29 years expertise in CAM development and applications, SolidCAM started out as a fully integrated CAD/CAM system.
After many years of successful development, the Founder and Managing director, Dr. Emil Somekh, realized it was more efficient to focus on developing an integrated CAM system for SolidWorks and thus leverage all the power of the company to develop the CAM functionality and use the great import and CAD power of SolidWorks. This same architecture was applied later in the integration to Autodesk Inventor.
SolidCAM has the Certified Gold-product status from SolidWorks since 2003 and provides seamless, single-window integration and full associativity to the SolidWorks design model.
InventorCAM has the Autodesk certified product status and provides seamless, single-window integration and full associativity to the Inventor design model.
Get the revolutionary iMachining from SolidCAM and save 70% and more in machining cycle time and extend tool life dramatically!
Are you getting the most out of your design software, CNC machines and tooling?
With SolidCAM and InventorCAM, the Leaders in Integrated CAM, you can power up your SolidWorks and Inventor to be the best CAD/CAM system available! You can use the CAD system you already know to program your CNC machines, without ever importing and exporting files.
Imagine the time and cost savings of eliminating model translation issues, as well as the incredible power of CAM functionality that works totally inside your familiar CAD interface. Watch as SolidCAM/InventorCAM automatically updates the NC toolpath, whenever a design change is made in your CAD system. You can make countless design changes without ever worrying about the cost and delays to the manufacturing side of the process. You will always be sure that you are machining your latest design revision!
But the advantages don’t just end with integration. With SolidCAM’s unique, revolutionary iMachining technology, imagine putting the knowledge and experience of hundreds of CAM and CNC masters in the palm of your hand, with the patented iMachining Wizard and toolpath! The result? You can machine 70% faster, and more, even with the smallest tools in the hardest materials, while extending your tool life dramatically. The smooth iMachining cutting will also do wonders for your CNC machine tool longevity.
iMachining: “Truly Amazing” . This is what customers, machine tool manufacturers and tooling companies alike say about iMachining. The revolutionary patented iMachining module from SolidCAM will make you and your CNC machines more profitable and more competitive than ever before. SolidCAM with iMachining is the only CAM system that takes out the guesswork from defining the cutting conditions and automatically provides the optimum values for cutting. iMachining provides unbelievable savings and increased efficiency in your milling CNC operations, translating into profits and success.
