Tim Hoeing, Plant Manager at H&M Tool & Die says, “The feature-based approach seems much more intuitive than the process of creating profiles and chains method. The automatic feature recognition and tool path associativity helps reduce programming time by as much as ten times. And the knowledge-based machining will save machining strategies for future use, enabling faster turn-around times on new jobs.”
With this release, Solid Edge users will gain access to the full suite of CAMWorks modules including Sync Manager and Sub Spindle operations manager to speed up CNC programming for complex multi-spindle, multi-turret mill turn machines. In addition, with the 5-axis simultaneous machining module, users in the aerospace, medical device, and oil & gas industry have the ability to machine complex surfaces using advanced 4 and 5 axis machining centers. Furthermore, tool and die customers now have the ability to program the Wire EDM machines within the same environment as their milling operations instead of having to maintain different software for different purposes.
“CAMWorks for Solid Edge has received extremely positive response. Our customers’ testimony to the value add we have provided has reinforced our mission to bring the latest in CAM technology in the shortest possible time and make it available in a truly embedded form on the Solid Edge platform”, says Sameer Kondejkar, head of Geometry Technology Solutions business unit at Geometric.
“CAMWorks for Solid Edge provides powerful machining solutions that are easy to use, and that enable our customers to get products to market faster and more efficiently,”
The 2014 version adds new mill-turn capabilities along with 5-Axis simultaneous machining and assembly-mode machining, enabling users to confidently and accurately create tool paths that avoid fixtures, clamps, and other necessary work-holding devices, which is essential for today’s complex machining centers.
