Product Announcement from Solid Edge - Siemens PLM Software
The latest release is Version 8 and features substantial advances in capabilities for machinery and heavy equipment manufacture. Other features include additional turbomachinery milling capabilities, new feature and process creation for programming automation, and improved shop documentation.
CAM Express - Version 8
CAM Express 8 is a full function, CAD neutral, NC programming system that is easy to deploy and increases productivity on the machine tools and in the programming shop. CAM Express 8 establishes a new standard for CAM capability, with substantial advances across the board.
CAM Express 8 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.
With new volume-based 2.5D milling operations for faster programming, automatic tracking of uncut material across multi-stage machining processes, and programming automation for multi-part setups, NX CAM for machinery provides the optimum set of capabilities to deliver higher quality parts faster.
