Advanced Programming Capabilities NX CAM software provides a wide range of functionality, from simple NC programming to high-speed and multi-axis machining, enabling you to address many tasks with one system. The flexibility of NX CAM means that you can easily complete the most demanding jobs.

NX CAM 2.5-Axis Milling: You can quickly program prismatic parts with the 2.5-axis milling software module in NX. The advanced programming capabilities enable you to easily create intelligent tool paths with minimum input.

NX CAM 2.5-axis milling offers a wide range of automated cutting strategies, including optimized roughing, rest milling, and feature-based machining.

NX CAM 3-Axis Milling: The 3-axis milling software module in NX provides a comprehensive solution for the programming of freeform parts, such as molds and dies.

With NX CAM 3-axis milling software you can achieve a high material removal rate and superior surface finish. The advanced cutting strategies include roughing, rest milling, high-speed machining (HSM) and finishing.

High-Speed Machining: The high-speed machining (HSM) capabilities in NX CAM help you reduce machining time by ensuring that cutting tools consistently perform at their maximum material removal rates. At the same time, you can extend life of cutting tools by preventing overloading and damage.

NX CAM 5-Axis Milling: Milling Software for Precise, Efficient Machining of Complex Parts The 5-axis milling software module in NX enables you to machine complex parts with fewer operations and setups – reducing cost and delivery times.

With NX CAM 5-axis milling, you can create precisely controlled tool paths on complex surfaces with effective collision and gouge checking.

NX CAM Wire EDM: A Complete Wire EDM Software Solution for Programming 2- and 4-axis EDM Machines The wire EDM software module in NX offers a wide range of electrical discharge machining (EDM) operations including multi-pass profiling, wire reversing and area removal. The operations can be applied to curves, surfaces or solids.
