Siemens NX CAM

Complete computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software solutions for machine tool programming, postprocessing and machining simulation. NX™ delivers proven capabilities for manufacturing in a wide variety of industries, including aerospace, automotive, medical, mold and die, and machinery.

Reduce Programming Time by More Than 90%

NX CAM can improve your manucturing productivity with the latest NC programming automation technologies. With feature-based machining (FBM), you can reduce programming time by as much as 90 percent. Flexible, reusable templates enable you to apply pre-defined, rules-driven processes to standardize and speed your programming tasks.

Many Manufacturing Tasks, One System

The flexibility of NX CAM means that you can easily complete the most demanding jobs. From simple NC programming to high-speed and multi-axis machining, NX CAM provides the flexibility to handle a wide variety of manufacturing, from 2.5 axis machining to turbomachinery milling.

Eliminates the Need for Separate Simulation Packages

A tightly integrated postprocessing system enables you to easily generate the required NC code for almost any type of machine tool and controller configuration. Simulation capabilities range from basic tool path verification to G-code-driven machine tool simulation.

Advanced Integration for Advanced PLM

Integration with Siemens NX CAD provides a full operational solution, including everything from modeling new parts and preparing part models for CAM, to creating setup drawings directly from 3D model data. Connecting NX CAM to Teamcenter software allows for full data and process management. 3D part models, setup sheets, tool lists and CNC output files can be easily managed with full revision control.

This integration ensures that the right data, including correct tooling, and right NC programs are deployed, resulting in reduced delays and costs.
