Siemens CAM Express

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.

Benefits:

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

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.

Easy-to-Deploy

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.

Easy-to-Use

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.

Packages:

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.
