Geometric launches CAMWorks® 2015 for Solid Edge® ST8
CAMWorks 2015 now runs inside Solid Edge ST8, Siemens latest version of the Solid Edge 3D mechanical design software
By: Geometric Limited
CAMWorks is an industry leader in knowledge-based machining, proprietary feature recognition, and true G-code machine simulation. These technologies enable the automation of the programming process, which result in faster CNC programming, faster setups, plus faster and more concise machining.
CAMWorks for Solid Edge ST8 supports a wide variety of CNC machining needs within Solid Edge. In addition to 2-1/2 and 3-Axis milling support, 4 and 5 simultaneous milling and multi-axis Mill Turn machining are all now fully supported. Using CAMWorks inside Solid Edge, the design and manufacturing models become one in the same and the fully associative tool paths will update automatically to design changes. The proprietary automatic feature recognition and patented technology database also allow users to capture and automatically reuse their best practices to significantly reduce programming time.
CAMWorks Virtual Machine is also available for Solid Edge, providing true G-Code machine simulation with collision detection to eliminate dry-runs and significantly reduce setup time. In addition, Geometrics’ high speed machining module, CAMWorks VoluMill™ can be used to dramatically reduce cycle time and greatly increase tool life for rough milling operations. Geometric has also amassed a post processor library made of all the major machine tools to aid in rapid implementation of CAMWorks.
CAMWorks is available in 11 languages and is sold in over 60 countries.
