Press release date: August 6, 2014
CAMWorks full suite of functionality, including advanced mill-turn and simultaneous 5-axis machining now available in CAMWorks for Solid Edge
Mumbai, India – Geometric Limited (BSE: 532312, NSE: GEOMETRIC), the leader in advanced manufacturing software, announces the availability of version 2014 of CAMWorks for Solid Edge software, the 3D CAD tool from Siemens PLM Software for the mainstream manufacturing market. The new version provides tighter integration to enable customers to reduce programming time to further accelerate time-to-market.
Tim Hoeing, Plant Manager at H&M Tool & Die says, "The feature-based approach seems much more intuitive than the process of creating profiles and chains method. The automatic feature recognition and tool path associativity helps reduce programming time by as much as ten times. And the knowledge-based machining will save machining strategies for future use, enabling faster turn-around times on new jobs."
With this release, Solid Edge users will gain access to the full suite of CAMWorks modules including Sync Manager and Sub Spindle operations manager to speed up CNC programming for complex multi-spindle, multi-turret mill turn machines. In addition, with the 5-axis simultaneous machining module, users in the aerospace, medical device, and oil & gas industry have the ability to machine complex surfaces using advanced 4 and 5 axis machining centers. Furthermore, tool and die customers now have the ability to program the Wire EDM machines within the same environment as their milling operations instead of having to maintain different software for different purposes.
"CAMWorks for Solid Edge has received extremely positive response. Our customers' testimony to the value add we have provided has reinforced our mission to bring the latest in CAM technology in the shortest possible time and make it available in a truly embedded form on the Solid Edge platform", says Sameer Kondejkar, head of Geometry Technology Solutions business unit at Geometric.
"CAMWorks for Solid Edge provides powerful machining solutions that are easy to use, and that enable our customers to get products to market faster and more efficiently," said Dan Staples, vice president, Solid Edge Product Development, Siemens PLM Software. "We are committed to strengthening the Solid Edge partner ecosystem and are encouraged to see the same commitment from our partners to bring added-value to our user-base."
The 2014 version adds new mill-turn capabilities along with 5-Axis simultaneous machining and assembly-mode machining, enabling users to confidently and accurately create tool paths that avoid fixtures, clamps, and other necessary work-holding devices, which is essential for today's complex machining centers.
About CAMWorks for Solid Edge
CAMWorks for Solid Edge is the first embedded CAM (computer-aided manufacturing) solution designed to operate in Solid Edge. CAMWorks for Solid Edge is the only feature-based CAM product on the market fully embedded inside of the Solid Edge design environment, which leverages synchronous technology. This enables users to make 'on demand' manufacturing design changes to any CAD model, and to automate workflows with easy-to-use associative CNC Programming technology. As a result, programming time can be accelerated up to 90%. For more information on CAMWorks, visit www.camworksforsolidedge.com.
