Siemens PLM Software Ships Version 6 of CAM Express

     Mid-market NC Programming Software Delivers New Machining Features

    PLANO, Texas, July 25 /EMWNews/ -- Siemens PLM Software, a business

unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global

provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today

announced Version 6 of CAM Express software is shipping to customers

worldwide. CAM Express is the full function numerical control programming

software component of the Velocity Series(TM) portfolio. It covers a wide

variety of programming requirements from high-speed machining to

multi-function mill-turning to 5-axis machining.


    "It [CAM Express version 6] contains a substantial number of important

and distinctive new capabilities that will further Siemens' leadership

position in the CAM software market and in CAM software technology," said

Alan Christman, chairman, CIMdata. "It will likely set new industry

standards in several key segments of CAM."

    Substantial advances in 3-axis machining, feature-based automation and

    user experience

    CAM Express 6 includes more capabilities across the critical 3-axis

machining application space, including specific high-speed machining

approaches, to enable:

    -- Simplified tricky tracing cuts with new cutting strategies for

curve/edge and 3D profile cutting.

    -- Ten percent faster roughing cuts with the latest optimized corner

rounding techniques.

    -- Smoother finish cuts with specialized point distribution in 3-axis

surface milling.

    -- More effective toolpaths thanks to new editing and dividing

techniques that apply shorter, stouter tools for deep cavities.

    In feature-based automation, CAM Express 6 brings Tecnomatix(R)

software technology to feature recognition and rule development to enable

feature-based machining driven by configurable rules. Incremental process

steps are defined and organized in a new Machining Knowledge Editor,

without writing code or editing scripts. CAM Express also maintains

production run quality with special support for measurement functions. CAM

Express 6 provides direct programming of Renishaw(R) probing cycles,

including the support of special solid tool representations and machine

simulation of probing cycles.

    CAM Express 6 includes four more tutorials that help new users get

going quickly. In addition, this release provides an improved user

experience through maximum graphics display and configurable shortcuts that

help novices become power users.

    "I really appreciate the improvements to [the] CAM Express interface,"

said Keith Irvine, CAD-CAM manager, Alto Packaging Limited. "I like the

graphics images that give me a preview of what I would expect. These

features make a really big difference in the smoothness of programming. In

addition, the streamline operation provides some very distinct advantages

for surface finish and high-speed machining in mold making."
