ModuleWorks, Siemens PLM Form CAM/CAD/CAE Partnership

As part of the partnership, ModuleWorks will develop CAM elements for Siemens’ NX software.

ModuleWorks, a supplier of CAD/CAM software components for machining and simulation, has announced an agreement with Siemens PLM Software. ModuleWorks is providing and further developing advanced CAM programming technology to be integrated into Siemens’ NX software, an integrated CAD/CAM/CAE solution. The close working arrangement with Siemens PLM Software covers topics including core CAM processing, general three- and five-axis milling, and particular complex applications.   

“ModuleWorks’ proven software technology can help us to add valuable new capabilities to the NX CAM system, and to do so very quickly, helping us to provide faster, easier programming and increased machining efficiencies,” says Vynce Paradise, director of advanced part manufacturing for Siemens PLM Software. “The benefits of this partnership are already available to thousands of existing NX CAM users. We will continue to collaborate closely with the ModuleWorks team on requirements for extended functionality and on special projects.”

“It’s very rewarding to see how our technology contributes to one of the leading CAM systems,” says Yavuz Murtezaoglu, managing director of ModuleWorks. “We are excited by the opportunity to work with Siemens PLM Software and to have our technology deployed by an industry leader.”
