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

Frequently Asked Questions
Why choose SolidCAM?
SolidCAM is great for any machinist. With a comprehensive set of toolpaths which cover all aspects of machining from simple 2.5D to complex multi turret, multi spindle applications.
Who makes SolidCAM?
SolidCAM is owned and ran by SolidCAM’s founder Dr Emil Somekh. SolidCAM prides itself as being a recognised leader in integrated CAM as well as being the developer of the industry leading iMachining roughing strategies.
Is SolidCAM part of SOLIDWORKS?
SolidCAM is a gold partner product for SOLIDWORKS offering industry leading CAM capability built directly into the SOLIDWORKS window.
What is SolidCAM iMachining?
SolidCAM iMachining is an industry leading roughing strategy which can reduces cycle times by over 75% as well as dramatically reducing tool wear. This is all achieved by iMachining toolpaths taking a constant chip thickness which means the tool has a constant force applied to it enabling you to cut faster for longer periods.
Can SOLIDWORKS or SolidCAM create G code?
With SolidCAM you can create machine code for almost any CNC machine, whether it be a 3 Axis Mill or a Sliding Head Lathe. This is done through a post processor that can be tailored to your machine kinematics specific needs.
Does SOLIDWORKS have a CAM Package?
Both SOLIDWORKS CAM and SolidCAM bring a comprehensive set of CAM tools directly into your SOLIDWORKS environment. Allowing you to seamlessly transition from CAD to CAM with toolpaths being fully associated to the CAD model so if a change is made it is captured immediately. Please explore our site or contact us to learn more about which package will best fit your needs.
