NX CAM The world leader in Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM)

NX CAM integrated manufacturing software links design and manufacturing to improve productivity throughout tooling and fixture design and NC machining processes.

As the world leader in computer-aided manufacturing, Siemens PLM software helps companies meet the challenge with leading edge solutions. More than point solutions for discrete production tasks, the NX suite of manufacturing software links design and manufacturing to improve productivity throughout tooling and fixture design and NC machining processes.


NX Advanced Programming Capabilities

In-depth functionality with maximum capability

  •  One CAM system for all applications
  • Program complex parts with the flexible and accurate 5-Axis machining
  • Maximum material removal with high-speed machining strategies
  • Drive the latest generation of multi function machines
  • Complete the part with superior surface finish


NX Programming Automation

Reduce programming time by 90 percent

  • Automatically recognises machining features such as pockets, slots and holes
  • Builds the correct machining process from the library of operations
  • Use the PMI model data to drive the machining process selection
  • Use the machining knowledge editor to add new operations


NX Production Ready Output

NX CAM ensures that you machine right first time at the machine tool

  • Create controller specific G-code with the internal post-processor
  • Extensive online post processor library
  • Verify NC programs with the integrated G-code driven machine tool simulation
  • Use a pre-configured machine tool support kit that includes 3D machine tool model, post processor and G-code based simulation driver – all specific for your controller and machine


NX Integrated Solutions

Design and modify parts with ease, in the same environment that you program parts for manufacturing.

  • Use the NX CAD functions to model anything from part and fixtures to machine tool assembly
  • Design and edit wire frame, surface or solid models and assemblies
  • Read, repair and modify CAD data coming in any standard format, such as IGES, STEP, and DXF/DWG
  • Ensure full associativity between the part and the machining operations by working in the NX environment
  • One system to learn for part preparation, fixture design, CAM and CMM programming


NX Model Quality & Validation

Poor quality geometric data imported from other systems can cause programming issues. For example, mismatched edges, tiny gaps in faces and non-manifold conditions are common in lower-precision modeling tools.

  • With NX you can quickly uncover and remedy any geometric issues before they becomes a larger problem
  • Check part design for manufacturability; the design validation tools include wall thickness and small radii checking functions with graphical feedback


NX Ease of Use

The latest user interaction techniques

…used across NX ensure that you can easily access the NX CAM advanced functions

  • Graphical-driven programming
  • Scaleable user-interface
  • Manufacturing setup templates
  • Workflow tutorials
  • Intuitive user interface with dynamic graphic display

What our customers say...

‘Freeform Technology specialise in ‘one-off’ components with very short lead times. We selected NX as it is fully configurable to our requirements making the CAM process user friendly and efficient, a key feature that makes NX stand out from its competitors’ Freeform Technology.'
