Turning

Complete turning functionality for single channel programming, including roughing and finishing operations for facing, turning, and boring.

Summary:
The NX™ CAM Turning Add-On software provides capabilities to program turning centers and vertical turret lathes. NX Turning cuts efficiently with turning operations that always track cut and uncut material. You can see what material remains at all times with a persistent display of part and stock for each operation to facilitate a running completion check.

Benefits

  • Supply any required turning motion
  • Cut efficiently with stock sensitive operations

Features

  • Turning
  • Facing
  • Boring
  • Grooving
  • Threading
  • Teach mode

Wire EDM

The Wire EDM add-on provides full-function capabilities for 4-axis wire programming:
Special engages and retracts for wire threading and breaking
No-core options for full material removal

Summary:
The NX™ CAM Wire EDM Add-On software provides capabilities to program wire machines. NX CAM cuts either 2 axis or 4 axis geometry configurations with its Wire EDM Machining Add-On.

Benefits

  • Smooth profiles with no “bump” at the engage site
  • No core roughing to prevent loose blocks from causing problems

Features

  • 2 and 4 axis machining
  • No core roughing
  • Feature-based machining

Machine Simulation

The Feature Based Machining Author Add-on provides author access to the Machining Knowedge Editor. Without this add-on, the ability to perform feature based automation will be limited to pre-built processes that are delivered with the software. Using the Machining Knowledge Editor, authors will be able to modify processes, build new processes, and define new feature modules.

Summary:
The NX™ CAM NC Simulation Add-On provides a complete kinematic machine environment for visualizing complex motion. Collision checking and multi-channel synchronization are simulated at the g-code level for the most accurate results.

Benefits

  • G-code driven simulation provides greater accuracy and confidence
  • Visual synchronization minimizes cycle times

Features

  • Tool path driven simulation
  • G-code driven simulation
  • Machine tool builder
  • Multi-channel synchronization

Without this add-on, the ability to perform feature based automation will be limited to pre-built processes that are delivered with the software. Using the Machining Knowledge Editor, authors will be able to modify processes, build new processes, and define new feature modules.

Summary:
Automation in NC programming provides a major opportunity for competitive business advantage. The NX™ CAM Feature-Based Machining Author Add-On provides capabilities to create and modify rules-driven automation processes in the Machining Knowledge Editor. These capabilities are especially valuable for shops that want to step up to the next level of NC automation.

Benefits

  • Significant improvements in programming efficiency with automated processing of well-defined features
  • Consistent processing across the organization with common methods
  • Standardization on best practices

Features

  • Modular features
  • Interactive feature teaching

5 Axis Milling

5 Axis Milling functionality, including tip cutting strategies, side cutting strategies, and traditional drive/part strategies.

Summary:
The NX™ CAM 5 Axis Milling Add-On provides extensive capabilities for simultaneous multi-axis cutting of complex surfaces. 5-axis milling in NX CAM includes multiple drive methods with a wide range of tool axis control options. 5-axis surface contouring and a set of tool axis interpolation options allow 5-axis machining on the most demanding of parts.

Benefits

  • Users can reduce setups with multi-axis milling
  • Time saving templates control cutting motion and tool axis with a minimum of user input
  • User control makes it possible to program virtually any 5-axis cut

Features

  • Area patterns
  • Contour Profile provides swarf cutting
  • Sequential mill provides cut-by-cut user control
