SOLIDCAM ACHIEVES CERTIFIED GOLD PRODUCT STATUS FOR SOLIDWORKS 2003
January 12, 2003 – SolidCAM, a fully integrated computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software product from SolidCAM Ltd., recently achieved Certified Gold Product status for SolidWorks 2003. SolidCAM provides a seamless, single-window integration to SolidWorks, and is fully associative with SolidWorks geometry. The combined SolidWorks and SolidCAM solution allows users to optimize their CNC-programming process, resulting in faster time-to-market and greater profits for manufacturing organizations and machine shops.
“We are very excited to achieve Certified Gold Product status,” said Dr. Emil Somekh, founder and managing director of SolidCAM Ltd. ”The combined power of the SolidWorks and SolidCAM solution provides the best mainstream CAD/CAM solution for manufacturing in the market today. We will be showing our new version, SolidCAM2003, at the SolidWorks World 2003 User Conference in Orlando from January 19th through the 22nd.”
“Now more than ever, manufacturers need to generate accurate toolpaths in a timely manner,” said Brian Houle, manager of the SolidWorks Solution Partner Program. “SolidCAM is a perfect example of how our partners are providing best-in-class solutions to meet the problems faced by our customers. We’re pleased to welcome SolidCAM as the latest addition to the Certified Gold Products program.”
SolidCAM works in both part and assembly mode, and supports SolidWorks configurations. When the geometry used to define a machining operation is changed in the SolidWorks design, SolidCAM enables the user to automatically synchronize all machining operations with the updated geometry. The full associativity of SolidCAM machining to the SolidWorks design model reduces errors when the model changes, and supports the process where updates are received for models already machined.
Knowledge-based machining processes’ in SolidCAM enable the user to capture and store machining methods and procedures. Manufacturing can be automated and all shop personnel can benefit from the expertise of the most skilled programmer who creates the manufacturing knowledge database.
For more than a decade, thousands of worldwide customers have relied on the performance of innovative CAM solutions provided by SolidCAM. The hallmarks of SolidCAM are its ease of use combined with its powerful CAM functionality and customized postprocessors that generate ready-to-go CNC-code. SolidCAM is widely used in mechanical manufacturing, automotive and aerospace Industries, electronics, mold & die shops, and rapid prototyping.
