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, 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 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 Siemen's 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 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 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.”
