CAMWorks is a 3D feature-based CAM system that optimises Computer Numerical Control (CNC) programming and machining. To achieve this level of complex hands-free programming, CAMWorks incorporates intelligent machining through automation – something that is desperately needed as production efficiencies are pushed further than before in today’s post-Brexit world.
Ian Weston, Business Development Director at NT CADCAM says: “For over 15 years, NT CADCAM has provided CAM training, customer installations, support and we’ve written some very complex post processors too, and now, we have an even larger and more technically skilled team in place as demand for these solutions grows. We are ideally placed to help customers who want advice or technical tips for CAMWorks and SOLIDWORKS CAM when it is released next month.”
He adds: “A holistic CAD and CAM solution from one vendor really is a viable option. It integrates your technologies letting your teams work together more effectively; increasing productivity, avoiding bottlenecks and keeping your business competitive. Another positive is that you’ve only got one number to call for support. As a gold partner product to SOLIDWORKS, the coders at CAMWorks understand the CAD software better than anyone and know how CAM software should be integrated – and whether as a supplier, training provider or technical support line, NT CADCAM has the most technically advanced team about.”
CAMWorks also leads the way in advancements in Automatic Feature Recognition (AFR) and Interactive Feature Recognition (IFR), offering true associative machining. With its seamless integration with SOLIDWORKS, CAMWorks lets customers use and manage just one file for both CAD and CAM systems, by using the same SOLIDWORKS geometry to generate toolpaths. This means that modifications made to the design are automatically updated in the CAM data, which eliminates the time consuming re-work associated with other CAM products, including time-consuming file transfers and conversions from standard file formats such as IGES and STP.
