With CAMWorks, you have the ability to store machining strategies based on features, which becomes a time-saving practice as you can reuse the strategies to reduce programming time significantly. If a design change is needed, the integration within SOLIDWORKS allows the tool paths to automatically update with no need to re-program.
Feature-based machining and Automatic Feature Recognition (AFR) within the software will ensure time savings when programming your CAD models. The AFR function will recognize over 20 types of machinable features in both imported and native CAD models. The option of Interactive Feature Recognition (IFR) is also available for more complex multi-surface features and will still take advantage of the machining strategies to save your machining techniques.
A completely associative and integrated CAM software with knowledge-based machining strategies. CAMWorks is a next-generation best-of-class CNC programming software.
Create machinable features from imported or native SOLIDWORKS CAD models and toolpaths will update when design changes are made.
Leverage existing machining techniques from your companies top programmers and save these as machining strategies within CAMWorks.
Reduce programming time by selecting full 3D machinable features instead of 2D chaining and profiling.
Take advantage of the Automatic Feature Recognition (AFR) tool within CAMWorks. This tool can find over 20 different machinable feature types from prismatic shapes on your CAD model.
Create high speed milling toolpaths with CAMWorks integrated Volumill™ toolpath. This toolpath will reduce machining time significantly and will also increase tool life.
The CAMWorks Mill-Turn product includes the full turning package with milling capabilities for your multi-tasking machine centers.
Check your CAM program's estimated machining times as a cost estimation tool with the coordination of machining strategies, and Automatic Feature Recognition.
Verify possible collisions in your CAM program using simulation options included in CAMWorks and the CAMWorks NC Editor.
The journey from prototype to production is rarely a straight line. As you probably already know, in the job shop environment, profits and loss are determined in a big way by whether or not you have an efficient manufacturing process workflow.
With CAMWorks, users program faster and machine smarter with reduced setup time, be able to address complex geometry with faster roughing, and reduced CNC programming time all within an easy-to-use user interface.
