CAM Express redefines part manufacturing productivity with new or extended capabilities for machinery and heavy equipment part production. This fast and highly accurate machining solution extends familiar CAM, programming automation, and integrated machine tool simulation capabilities with automated, context-specific functions to simplify the generation of smart tool paths for prismatic parts.
To be competitive in a global market manufacturers and machine shops need to take full advantage of the most efficient and innovative machine tools such as high speed mills, five axis machines or mill-turn multi-function equipment. To deliver the expected return on investment it becomes imperative to be able to program them quickly and effectively.
With a wide range of customers from the largest global engineering companies to thousands of small machine shops Siemens PLM Software has taken advantage of its proven capability in CAM software to create CAM Express and to offer the advanced programming capability needed by NC programmers in order to fully utilize advanced machine tools.
2 1/2 Axis Machining
The 2 1/2 Axis Machining package provides the basic milling and turning capabilities needed in the machining industry, or for other 2 1/2 axis applications such as finishing castings.
The 3 axis machining package provides a full complement of 3-axis milling and drilling capabilities, well suited for the most demanding mold and die machining. To maximize the value of the advanced toolpath technology CAM Expess delivers the proven methods and knowledge.
The Mill-turn Machining package has all the components needed to effectively program multi-function equipment like mill-turn combination machines. Multi-turret and multi-spindle turning centers can be easily synchronized, with full visualization and timing comparisons.
The Advanced Machining package is configured to program 5-axis machine tools, including multi-function 5-axis mill turn machines. It enables fast accurate machining of typical complex aerospace parts.
Each CAM Express package comes with a comprehensive base of core technology including access to the Siemens PLM Software on-line post-processor library, a graphical post processor build and edit application, tool-path verification, CAD file translators, .on-line help, shop documentation output, assembly handling, access to machining parameter library with proven machining data and more.
CAM Express is designed to be used independently of any specific CAD system. It has key industry translators for data import. CAM Express is also available for integrated use with Siemens PLM Software CAD applications (NX or Solid Edge) based on the same packages outlined above.
