Simultaneous 5-Axis Machining

Proven and Powerful Simultaneous 5-Axis Milling


The Most Tested and Demonstrated in the Industry
Take advantage of the most tested and proven 5-axis machining tool path in the industry, with an interactive user interface and the most advanced controls over all aspects of tool paths and collision checking, including: wide variety of simultaneous 5X cutting strategies, flow line cutting toolpaths that follow the natural shapes of components, advanced tool tilting control, and many more.


Excellence in Machining Control

The most tested and proven 5-axis machining tool paths in the industry.

Flexibility and Control

Every 5-Axis machining strategy comes with sophisticated options for approach/link control and tool axis control.

  • Approach and link moves are fully gouge protected, and different strategies can be deployed according to the distance of the link move.
  • SolidCAM provides control options over lead/lag and side tilt angles to allow complete manipulation over the final toolpath.
  • Simultaneous 5X Milling also supports circular-segment cutters with barrel-, oval- and tapered geometry.

Automatic Edge Breaking

After CAM Machining, an unwanted burr can occasionally be found that have straight edges or non-tangent outer surface topologies - risking the functionality of the part or endangering the users due to its razor sharp nature.

  • Edge breaking operation creates a deburring toolpath on the other edges of a geometry.
  • A fully automatic tool path can be created by just selecting the part geometry, with additional features like Automatic Feature Detection, Linking, Lead-In and Collision Avoidance.
  • Ball mill cutters and quality geometry input (mesh) are required for the detection feature to work as intended.

Automatic Edge Trimming

Edge Trimming operation uses a highly automated algorithm to create a tool path that trims the edge thin materials of machined parts to get their final shape.

  • Various options for position definition of the tool relative to the geometry is available, from 3-axis output to more complex 5-axis output with different tool axis orientation.
  • Axial shift feature enables the tool to be engaged with a certain value into the material.
  • The edge trimming operation can be fully automated or user defined, offering a variety of corner handling functions to ensure a smooth tool path creation.
