SolidCAM at the Euromold 2013 exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany

January 16, 2014 - SolidCAM participated in this year´s Euromold 2013, for the 19th time in a row. This important mold making, tooling, design and application development exhibition, took place in Frankfurt, Germany, December 3-6.

Mold making is a competitive industry and its main challenge is meeting demands for short delivery times, which require a combination of excellent toolpath quality and optimal machining performance.  SolidCAM offers a very powerful CAM solution for any factory in this industry.

The company exhibited its latest SolidCAM and InventorCAM versions, seamlessly integrated in SolidWorks and Autodesk Inventor respectively, providing the ideal CAM solution for any factory in the moldmaking sector. In SolidCAM’s latest versions, there have been major enhancements to its revolutionary iMachining 3D, HSM and Simultaneous 5 Axis modules, which are particularly beneficial for mold and insert machining.

iMachining 3D automatically produces a complete, ready to run CNC program, with optimal cutting conditions to rough, rest rough and semi-finish a complete 3D part, with True Scallop on all slopes, all in a single operation. iMachining 3D provides amazing 3D machining results, regularly providing 70% savings in machining time, reaching up to 90% savings, compared to other CAM systems.

 SolidCAM's HSM module generates an optimized 3D finish toolpath for any mold or insert part. The result of HSM is an efficient and smooth toolpath, translating to very high surface quality.

The latest enhancements in SolidCAM’s Simultaneous 5 Axis modules include Multi-Axis Drill, Countour 5 Axis and enhancement to the Convert HSM to Sim 5 Axis strategy. As many mold shops are introducing simultaneous 5-axis machines, the Convert HSM to Sim 5 axis strategy enables the simple conversion of 3D HSM toolpaths to full 5-axis toolpaths. This produces better surface quality through the use of different tool tilting strategies and short cutters.

At the Euromold booth, the SolidCAM team and two of its resellers in Germany, DPS and Coffee, exhibited on five demonstration stations, showing the latest versions of SolidCAM + SolidWorks and InventorCAM + Inventor. 

LIVE cutting demonstrations were carried out on a Grob G350 -1239 5-axis machining center, cutting 1.2379 Tool Steel with iMachining 2D & 3D, using cutters ranging from 16 mm diameter down to 1.5 mm diameter. Toolpaths also included simultaneous 5x roughing and swarfing cutting operations. Representatives from the Hoffman Group were present on the SolidCAM booth, as Hoffman tools were used for the live cutting demonstrations on the Grob machine.

Dr. Emil Somekh, Founder and CEO of SolidCAM says, “Euromold was the final exhibition in a very successful year for SolidCAM. The impressive showing of our latest products, including the amazing iMachining 2D & 3D technology, demonstrate the very powerful solutions that we can provide to our machining customers today”.
