CAM Express is a modular, flexible configuration of numerical control (NC) programming solutions that allows you to maximize the value of your 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.
CAM Express can be used independently of any specific computer-aided design (CAD) system and includes key industry translators for data import. CAM Express is also available for integrated use with Siemens PLM Software CAD applications (NX and Solid Edge) based on the same packages outlined below.
The latest release of CAM Express features substantial advances in capabilities for machinery and heavy equipment manufacturing. Other features include additional turbomachinery milling capabilities, new feature and process creation for programming automation, and improved shop documentation.
Modular Industry Focused Packages
CAM Express is available in application focused packages to address:
2 1/2-Axis Machining
CAD Neutral: CAM Express is designed to be used independently of any specific CAD system. It has key industry translators for data import.
Integrates with Solid Edge and NX: CAM Express is also available for integrated use with Siemens CAD applications (NX™ software or Solid Edge® software) based on the same packages outlined above.
Online post library: Online access to a postprocessor library where customers can search for and download post files directly into CAM Express saving time, and making it easier to become productive.
Machine tool supports kits: Advanced machines need advanced posts and complete 3D simulations. Siemens works with machine tool makers to create and offer proven combinations of these with examples, ready-to-go setups and documentation.
Navigators: Includes a set of consistent navigators that manage key elements of the system.
Using templates: Templates are used extensively throughout the system to capture and re-apply methods, geometry, setups, operations and tool selections.
Wizards: Wizards take the user to a whole new level of automated interaction. CAM Express comes with a drag-and-drop wizard builder.
CAM Express is available in several modular, flexible configurations. 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.
CAM Express Foundation
All of the supporting functions required for NC programming including data translation, model editing, assembly modeling, material removal visualization, access to a machining parameter library, post-processing and shop documentation.
CAM Express Total Machining
A wide range of machining capabilities. Suited to shops that program a wide variety of machines, the Total Machining product includes capabilities for turning, 2.5- to 5-axis machining, and Wire EDM manufacturing operations
CAM Express 5 Axis Machining
Comprehensive milling capabilities. Machine simulation makes sure that even complex 5 axis motion is visualized and checked for safety. The 5 Axis Machining product includes capabilities for 2.5-, 3- and 5-axis milling and simulation for all these machining operations.
"CAM Logic has been very attentive to resolving our needs in a timely fashion. Their hyper-focus on each issue assures us that they are just as interested in our needs as we are."
"We have been working with CAM Logic for 12 years. The service and response is outstanding, their staff is extremely knowledgeable and 99% percent of our questions are answered on the first call. When their engineers are tasked with a problem we are facing, they stay on it until the issue is resolved. Goes without saying that CAM Logic is a true engineering technology partner."
Aero Foil International
"CAM Logic has been instrumental in helping us optimize our use of 3D technology. We’re very new to this field and the CAM Logic team has been very generous by providing time, resources and expertise. Without a doubt, the fact that we have our athletes effectively using 3D printed gloves at this very moment is directly attributable to the assistance CAM Logic has provided."
Head Coach, University of Illinois Wheelchair Racing Team
"I was impressed with the technical know-how and experience of the CAM Logic team in scanning large objects with high accuracy. After developing project requirements and expectations, the work was carried out efficiently. CAM Logic's team even worked with me after the scanning process was complete to ensure the final product could be modified to work in a manufacturing environment. The result was a highly detailed 3D model of the prototype car body which my company used for manufacturing of body molds."
Lance G. Lamson
"CAM Logic's Applications Team exceeded my expectations when I added manufacturing to my NX seat. They made sure I understood best practices, like feature based machining, as well as the material and tool library when using the automatic feeds and speeds. Additionally, they made remote training available to meet my schedule. Great support!"
"CAM Logic's highly trained team has the fundamental knowledge of which tools and solutions are out there to meet our needs. They want to do the right thing. They want to get us the right product. They want to see us succeed. We love having a relationship with CAM Logic."
Pratt & Miller
"The instructor was the most knowledgeable instructor I have ever had. He answered all questions without hesitation or any confusion. It is very apparent that he knows this software and can convey information very well."
