SolidCAM For SolidWorks Overview

SolidCAM is a new generation CAD/CAM system developed by the Israeli company SolidCAM Ltd. This system is a comprehensive solution for automation of metalworking production. Using the wide range of turning, milling, turn-milling and electrical discharge machining strategies offered by SolidCAM, a technologist can quickly prepare the necessary set of control programs for machining a product.

SolidCAM For SolidWorks Features

SolidCAM 2.5-axis milling
provides high efficiency and accuracy for 2.5-axis milling of parts. Various processing strategies are supported for elements such as contour, recess (with islands) and groove, as well as various types of hole processing: drilling, countersinking, threading, etc. The system has a wide range of capabilities for 2.5-coordinate processing of analytical surfaces.

SolidCAM 3-axis milling
provides a wide range of tools that can be effectively used for processing products with complex geometries (stamps, molds) and prismatic-shaped parts. A 3D surface or solid model is used as the geometry for 3-axis machining. The system supports various types of roughing and finishing strategies, such as raster machining with a specified or automatically determined raster angle, equidistant machining, projection machining, waterline machining, etc.

In addition to the already listed 2.5- and 3-coordinate processing capabilities, SolidCAM offers tools for identifying and refining areas that were not processed in previous transitions. It is possible to create a database of standard technological processes. Once created, such a parameterized technological process can be reused in the future, which significantly reduces production preparation time, increases the reliability of developed programs, unifies the style of technological development, guarantees the use of only optimal processing technologies and ensures production independence from the human factor. The absence of gouges is guaranteed by the presence of means of control and visualization of machining.

Multi-Axis Machining
SolidCAM offers a variety of tools for creating multi-axis machining programs on 4- and 5-axis machining centers. The model is installed in a user-defined processing plane, after which the system automatically calculates all the necessary displacement and rotation parameters for the part zero. As a result, the preparatory and final transition time is significantly reduced and processing accuracy is increased.

Turning and turning-milling
SolidCAM has a wide range of functions for automating the creation of control programs for turning and turning-milling. SolidCAM supports various types of tools, which allows you to efficiently perform longitudinal turning, facing, grooving, etc. In addition, SolidCAM allows you to automatically perform roughing and finishing of complex contours. Rotary tool support allows milling and drilling transitions on machining centers.

Electrical discharge machining
The set of wire EDM strategies offered by SolidCAM allows the processing of external and internal contours with a constant and variable angle of inclination. The possibility of 4-axis processing is provided. A special algorithm prevents the processed material from falling. SolidCAM provides the user with control over the physical processing parameters along the entire wire path.
