SOLID Applications supply two different CAM packages. hyperMILL for SOLIDWORKS and Delcam for SOLIDWORKS.
With hyperMILL®, both simple and complex geometries can be programmed efficiently. Workpieces can be completely machined in a single setup thanks to the broad range of machining strategies. The advantages: continuous and more efficient processes, reduced processing times and higher reliability.
In addition, hyperMILL® offers several options for automated programming, reducing machine cycle times and optimising processes. Examples of this include sophisticated feature and macro technology, automated functions such as mirroring and transforming, functions that minimise auxiliary processing times such as job linking or production mode, and fully automated collision checking and avoidance.
Using the latest functionality from FeatureCAM and PowerMILL, Delcam for SolidWorks has been developed in response to requests from customers looking to undertake their CAM programming from within the SolidWorks environment.
Delcam for SolidWorks offers 2-axis, 3-axis and 5-axis positional and simultaneous milling and drilling, as well as turning, turn/mill and wire EDM, enabling users to perform simple, automated operations or machine complex shapes in a single set-up. Associative toolpaths minimise programming times by updating automatically if your model changes.
