Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM)
Shorter product development cycles are the primary driving force in manufacturing. Continuous innovation and change in designs require more and faster development of numerical control programs, molds, tools and dies required to manufacture the product. Rapid technology change is increasing the complexity of the tools and processes used in manufacturing, and new methodologies are breaking down the walls between design and manufacturing operations.
As the world leader in computer-aided manufacturing, Siemens PLM software helps companies meet the challenge with leading edge solutions. More than point solutions for discrete production tasks, the NX suite of manufacturing software links design and manufacturing to improve productivity throughout tooling and fixture design and NC machining processes.
Advanced technology in NX tooling solutions automates and accelerates the development of molds, dies, and fixtures for higher quality, lower cost and faster turnaround. For machining, NX delivers the range and depth of CAM performance that maximizes returns on investments in advanced machine tools. Linked with proven data and process controls, NX helps companies manage information to improve productivity and collaboration in manufacturing operations.
Delivering Machine Tool Value
CAM Express is an in-depth, highly flexible system that allows users to maximize the value of their investments, in the latest, most efficient and most capable machine tools. Easy to deploy and easy to learn. CAM Express provides powerful NC Programming with a low total cost of ownership.
Modular industry focused packages
CAM Express is available in application focused packages to address:
• 2 1/2-Axis Machining
• 3-Axis Machining
• Mill-turn Machining
• Advanced Machining
CAM Express is designed to be used independently of any specific CAD system. It has key industry translators for data import.
Integrated with Solid Edge and NX
CAM Express is also available for integrated use withSiemens CAD applications (NX™ software or Solid Edge® software) based on the same packages outlined above.
A total solution- a complete foundation within each package
Each CAM Express package comes with a comprehensive base of core technology including access to the Siemens online postprocessor library, a graphical postprocessor build and edit application, toolpath verification, CAD file translators, online help, shop documentation output, assembly handling, access to machining parameter library with proven machining data and more. There are three packages available- CAM Express Foundation, CAM Express 5-Axis Machining and CAM Express Total Machining.
