SOLIDWORKS CAM Professional Capabilities
SOLIDWORKS CAM Professional builds on the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS CAM Standard to increase programming capabilities. The additional features are: Assembly machining, turning, and 3+2 programming to drive four and five-axis machines. These additional features will allow users to define fixtures as well as leverage assembly configurations to program similar parts quickly.
Automatic Feature Recognition: Turning
Eliminate hours of complex programming by interpreting the design of parts through Automatic Feature Recognition.
Program CNC Lathe Machines with Automatic Roughing, Finishing, Grooving, Threading, Cutoff and Single Point Cycles
Use Assembly Machining as a simple way to store information in your parts. This will allow you to configure similar parts in no time flat!
You can machine multiple faces of your part while SOLIDWORKS CAM automatically indexes your moves. 4/5 axis indexing is as simple as inserting an Axis. Both 2 and 3 Axis cycles can be used to machine multi-faced or multiple parts.
VoluMill is ideal for complex 3-D shapes and prismatic parts as its algorithms result in more intelligent toolpaths to machine pockets, slots, and arbitrary shapes. VoluMill is well suited for machining soft as well as hard materials that are hard to chip, such as titanium, nickel-based alloys or stainless steel. The result is increased efficiency and utilization of machines, tools, labor and materials.
Program Smarter, Machine Faster! The high-performance roughing module, which is fully integrated in SOLIDWORKS CAM, combines optimal milling paths and maximum material removal with minimized machining times. VoluMill’s unique approach to high speed material removal allows the programmer to determine the optimum material removal rate for any combination of part geometry, material, machine, and cutting tool. Material is removed in the most effective way possible. Consequently, machines run smoothly and tools run cooler.
- Reduce your Cycle Times up to 80%
- Reduce your programming times up to 50%
- Increase your Cutting Tool Life up to 500%
