WHAT IS SOLIDWORKS CAM?

SOLIDWORKS CAM Powered by CAMWorks is an integrated 2.5-axis milling and 2-axis lathe programming solution by SOLIDWORKS. By utilizing the emerging technologies of Model Based Definition and Knowledge Based Machining, SOLIDWORKS CAM can rapidly transform your Design to Manufacturing process by improving communication, reducing errors, reducing cycle times, and increasing your product quality. It leverages the rich content in the 3D CAD model to speed up product development and reduce error prone, time-consuming, repetitive manual steps in the current development process, like programming CNC machines. Knowledge Based Machining (KBM) is the foundation for streamlining the programming process, learning as you program which frees up your time to focus on the critical areas of the components. SOLIDWORKS CAM is 2.5 axis milling and turning. 2.5 axis will also cover Laser, Waterjet and Plasma cutting.


KEY FEATURES OF SOLIDWORKS CAM


  • Feature Recognition
  • With patented Automatic Feature Recognition (AFR) technology, the SOLIDWORKS CAM can recognize 20+ types of machinable features on parts such as holes, slots and pockets.

  • Feature Recognition
  • With patented Automatic Feature Recognition (AFR) technology, the SOLIDWORKS CAM can recognize 20+ types of machinable features on parts such as holes, slots and pockets.

  • 2.5 Axis Milling
  • SOLIDWORKS CAM includes automatic roughing, finishing, thread milling, face milling and single point (drilling, boring, reaming, tapping) cycles.

  • 3 + 2 Programming
  • SOLIDWORKS CAM can employ a machining technique where a three-axis milling program is executed with the cutting tool locked in a tilted position using the five-axis machine's two rotational axes.

  • Turning
  • SOLIDWORKS CAM has turning capabilities that include face rough and finish, rough and finish turn, groove rough and finish, rough and finish bore, cut-off, ID and OD threading, and drill, and tap on center.

  • Tolerance Based Machining
  • Model Based Definition (MBD) is leveraged to ensure machining strategies are automatically adjusted based on tolerance specifications. Reading tolerances and surface finishes will help you to make decisions about how to manufacture your product.

  • Automate Machine Times
  • Automate machine time calculation and compare it to traditional methods for ensuring all aspects of a part are accounted for ahead of time before committing to production.

  • High-Speed Machining (HSM)
  • SOLIDWORKS Cam utilizes Volumill for high performance roughing capabilities which allows programmers to reduce cycle times by up to 80%, reduce programming times by up to 50% and increase Tool Life by up to 500%.

  • Associative Machining
  • SModifications made to the SOLIDWORKS design are automatically updated in SOLIDWORKS CAM, which eliminates time consuming CAM system rework due to design alterations.

  • Improve quality through standardization!
  • Capture your Best Practices into a company owned database SOLIDWORKS CAM will automatically select your machining strategies, tools, feeds & speeds Helps new programmers to quickly become productive
