Gain efficiency using one comprehensive CAM software

Program any job using one software. NX CAM provides comprehensive and integrated NC programming capabilities in a single system. This enables the use of consistent 3D models, data and processes to seamlessly connect planning and shop floor operations with a digital thread.

You can streamline and automate NC programming, while reducing cycle time, using powerful, application-specific tools. From 2.5-axis machining and mold manufacturing, to simultaneous 5-axis milling and high-volume production, NX allows you to use one CAM software to make better parts faster.

Improve productivity using advanced CAM software for 5-axis machining

With 5-axis machining, you can produce complex parts with fewer operations and setups – reducing cost and delivery times. NX CAM’s 5-axis capabilities allow you to create precisely controlled tool paths to effectively machine complicated geometries.

The software’s application-specific capabilities can dramatically simplify programming of the most complex parts, such as impellers, blisks, and engine ports. You can create optimized operations and eliminate errors in production by visualizing multi-axis toolpath characteristics.

Transform your mold and die machining using advanced CAM software

Make better molds, dies, and electrodes using a single software system. NX CAM advanced capabilities for high-speed machining, automated rest milling, and smooth finishing methods help you produce high-quality tooling faster.

You can further reduce lead time and improve quality using specialized, easy-to-use five-axis machining capabilities for mold and die machining.

Using the digital twin of your machine setup, you can validate the machining process to eliminate errors on the shop floor.

Increase production efficiency using validated and optimized NC programs

Generate NC programs for a wide range of CNC machine tools with NX’s integrated postprocessor. The machine-ready NC programs enable you to increase machine tool utilization and overall production efficiency.

Leverage the digital twin of your machines and entire production lines to validate operations before you start the production. By using the integrated G-code-driven machine simulation in NX CAM you can optimize manufacturing processes and eliminate errors on the shop floor.

Automate programming of prismatic parts and drive high-volume production machining

Quickly create optimized NC programs for prismatic parts with minimum input. Automated capabilities in NX CAM, including volume-based milling and feature-based machining help you reduce programming time by up to 90 percent.

For higher volume production machining, NX helps you program multiple parts over multiple setups and machines.

To drive the latest multi-function machines, capable of producing complete parts in one setup, you can synchronize, visualize and optimize machining sequences across many channels.

    What is NX CAM?

    The NX CAM programming software from Siemens PLM is used to create and edit CAD models. These models are used to generate NC operations that produce the real workpiece on the machine tool. As with machine tools, NX CAM offers a variety of machining strategies, such as roughing, semi-finishing, and finishing.

    Which is better NX CAD or NX CAM?

    Reviewers felt that NX CAM meets the needs of their business better than NX CAD. When comparing the quality of ongoing product support, reviewers felt that NX CAM is the preferred option. For feature updates and roadmaps, our reviewers preferred the direction of NX CAM over NX CAD.
