SCHRAMBERG, Germany, Jul 15, 2021 – SolidCAM is pleased to announce the availability of SolidCAM 2021 SP2 to all SolidCAM customers on subscription. The most powerful release yet, SolidCAM 2021 introduces the new Tool Table – ToolKit (especially important for Mill-Turn & Swiss-Type customers), new Sim5X operations including Edge Breaking and Edge Trimming, as well as many enhancements to SolidCAM’s various CAM modules.
In the new ToolKit, it is now possible to import 3D tool data seamlessly, including tool holders, directly from the tool manufacturers’ cloud-based tool databases. ToolKit makes the tool assembly process as easy as possible for the user. Based on how tools are assembled in real life, the new ToolKit offers the possibility to assemble tools, their holders, and additional components, exactly how tools are assembled in the machine shop.
The SolidCAM Sim5X operation of Edge Breaking automatically detects all edges to be deburred and creates a collision-free toolpath. SolidCAM Edge Trimming can be used, especially in the composites industry, to remove excess material from parts during manufacturing. An additional function available to all Sim5X customers under subscription is Sim5X Auto 3+2 Roughing, which automatically roughs parts from all possible sides, without any manual intervention by the operator.
SolidCAM 2021 includes the new SolidCAM Simulator that provides amazing graphical simulations of all SolidCAM operations. This simulator offers multi-channel simulations and combines all the modes of previous SolidCAM simulations into one integrated and easy-to-use interface.
CIMCO Edit Professional is directly integrated in SolidCAM 2021 to provide users with one of the most advanced G-Code editors in the industry. The seamless export of SolidCAM information, including Tool Table data, stock, target and fixtures, makes CIMCO Edit very useful for SolidCAM customers.
SolidCAM’s already robust Mill-Turn and Swiss functionalities have been further enhanced in SolidCAM 2021. SolidCAM offers today the only SOLIDWORKS integrated solution, that supports all multi-channel Mill-Turn and Swiss-Type CNC machines.
“We have already revolutionized the machining world with iMachining and will do so again with our current project –AI-based Capturing Best Practices. This technology is currently a novelty in the CAM market, and we are consistently pursuing this goal.” says Dr. Emil Somekh, founder and CEO of SolidCAM, adding that he is “confident that SolidCAM is laying further new foundations for the future of CAM.”
Michael Leditzky, Technical COO of SolidCAM Germany, is convinced that, in addition to excellent CAM software, service and support must be offered at the very highest level. SolidCAM works hard to accomplish this with their global and local support teams composed of CNC machining and SolidCAM CAM experts, assisting customers, both online and onsite, regarding technical queries and complex manufacturing and post tasks.
