What is CAMWorks for Solid Edge All About?


CAMWorks for
Solid Edge is the only  feature-based
CAM product on the market that leverages synchronous technology, enabling you
to make “on demand” manufacturing design changes to any  CAD model.  You can automate workflows with easy-to-use associate NC Programming technology to accelerate programming time up to 90%.
CAMWorks for Solid Edge is an embedded CAM program that is
fully integrated with Solid Edge,  and provides you with unprecedented benefits like:
Reduced programming time from hours to minutes using automatic feature recognition in conjunction with knowledge base

Lower cost of ownership with ease-of-use and a short learning curve

Reduced turnaround time with automatic regeneration of toolpath for rapid ‘on the fly’ manufacturing design changes to any CAD model

Ability to retain and standardize manufacturing best practices by leveraging automatic feature recognition and assigning appropriate machining strategy using a proprietary Technology Database
CAMWorks is an intuitive featured based CAM solution assisting manufacturers to increase productivity and profits by utilizing best-in-class technologies and adaptable automation tools to maximize machining efficiencies with ease.
Even if you are not a CAM expert, you can learn the user
interface quickly and create good tool paths with just a small amount of
training.  CAMWorks will recognize geometry using
patented feature recognition technology and produce tool paths automatically based on the Technology Database (TechDB™).
The Technology Database is: Fully customizable

Easy to navigate

Contains information defining what strategies, tools, speeds/feeds, and etc.
based  on selected geometry

A means to capture and reuse machining best-practices of an organization

Efficient in automation of NC programming from a database


VoluMill™ is fully integrated into CAMWorks, making it simple to learn and easy to use.  VoluMill™ produces
an ultra-high performance toolpath designed for High-Speed Machining
applications: 2-axis and 3-axis rough milling tasks.  VoluMill™ makes dynamic adjustments to the
axial depth of cut and feed rate to stay inside the pre-determined rate of
material removal.  VoluMill™ has been proven to quadruple Milling cutter life while operating safely at great feeds and speeds than recommended by cutter manufacturers.

VoluMill™ designs a path to increase overall
path length with these techniques. VoluMill™ address four traditional toolpath problem areas:

initial full cut into a material

stepping over in-between cuts

feeding into new areas of parts

overloading in corners
CAMWorks for Solid Edge’s key to faster time-to-market:

Identify Features: Using patented, Automated Feature Recognition from

Apply Machining Best Practices: Use Knowledge Based Machining to leverage in-house machining knowledge

Automatically Adjust to Design Changes: Fully associative toolpaths update automatically to design changes
CAMWorks for Solid Edge will allow you to increase quality
while reducing scrap, tooling costs, programming and overall lead time.  You will find it worthwhile to learn and powerful when learned.
No one else compares to the speed of their Knowledge-Based
Machining/Synchronous Technology power combination.
