Siemens PLM Software Ships CAM Express With Synchronous Technology

Siemens PLM Software announced CAM Express software with synchronous technology is shipping to customers worldwide. CAM Express, the core CAM component of the Velocity Series™ portfolio, incorporates Siemens PLM Software’s new history-free, feature-based design technology.

CAM Express version 6.0.1 includes additional model editing tools that leverage synchronous technology for more effective set up in preparation for NC programming. By leveraging synchronous technology, this latest release includes the ability to edit multi-CAD data as if it were native and to make those edits much faster.

“CAM Express is the first application beyond CAD in which we have implemented our new synchronous technology,” said Bill McClure, vice president of development for Velocity Series, Siemens PLM Software. “This fundamentally shows the extensibility of the technology as we expand its use into other areas of PLM.”

Modeling with synchronous technology is a key addition to the model editing tools in CAM Express. Other model edit functions include tools for wireframe, surface extraction, sewing, projections, trim/extend and simple solids. This complete set of model editing tools in this latest release allow NC programmers to make the changes they require without waiting for model refreshes or customer edits.

As a CAD-neutral CAM system, CAM Express is able to make edits faster than the authoring CAD system. The source of the model is unimportant. Synchronous technology enables intelligent selections with grab and manipulate features by topology.

Velocity Series is a comprehensive family of modular, integrated solutions addressing the PLM needs of the mid-market.
