Metal Manufacturing

What Versions of SolidCAM are there?
Modules allow you to get exactly the functionality you need
SolidCAM is a comprehensive CAM solution that allows you to machine with high precision and control. From simple 2.5 axis work to complex mill turn SolidCAM's modular approach allows you to pick the toolpath you want for the geometry needed to be machined.

With SolidCAM you can also utilise iMachining which has been proven to reduce cycle times by upto 80%. This roughing strategy takes your material, tool and machine into consideration to minimise cycle times and maximise output all within a simple interface.
SolidCAM Milling
SolidCAM's milling capability is extensive. Allowing users to reduce cycle times with imachining and create complex 5 axis toolpaths all within a simple interface
SolidCAM MillTurn
SolidCAM's millturn functionality allows the ability to synchronise jobs between turrets and spindles as well as applying all he intricacies of milling and turning at once
SolidCAM SwissTurn
SolidCAM has developed a specialist set of tools built off its mill turn ability to streamline the process of Swiss type machining, minimising the complexities in the path to production
