Swiss-Type Machining

Simple Programming for Complex Multiple Turret and Spindle Swiss-type CNC Machines


Easy-to-use. Intuitive. Proven.
Swiss-type CNC truning centers provides a cost-effective way to manufacture small, complex, and precision parts. This is achieved by feeding the stock through a guide bushing and cutting it with linear or revolver-sorted cutting tools, all in a single setup. Driven by the proven concept of Advanced Mill-Turn, SolidCAM Swiss Type Machining is an easy-to-use, intuitive, and proven module that enables you to do offline part programming, tool-path simulation, optimization and verification.


Speed Up Your Complex CNC Machines

With a wide pallet of Turning and C-, Y- and B-axis Milling operations, coupled with the unique patented iMachining technology of SolidCAM, we support all common Swiss-Type machine and controller brands on the market - there are no limits on the number of axes or channels.

ToolKit - Limitless Tool Manager

ToolKit allows you to load, assemble and manage tools and cutting conditions. In the CAM industry and market, SolidCAM ToolKit is considered one of the best tool manager with user-friendly interface.

  • Guarantees a fast tool configuration switching, and supported by a virtual machine environment (Machine Preview) to eliminate potential error of tool setup.
  • Has a CAD data import for any tool components, including small and custom shaped inserts, directly from the tool manufacturer's online catalog.
  • The ToolKit also supports any type of Face, Axial, Angular, and Multi-Cutter holders.
SolidCAM Swiss Type F1

Enhanced Programming, Simulation for a Smooth Manufacturing

Milling and Turning operations give complete control over the X-axis output (positive or negative), avoiding potential collisions of neighbour tools with CNC machine components.

  • Capable of Polar Coordinate Interpolations cycles (radial or face).
  • Supports Thread Whirling as an irreplaceable method in Swiss-Type machines, for medical screws and precise machining.
  • Easily define custom Thread shapes for roughing and finishing tool-paths, all based on the tool profile.
  • Full control over the C-axis output for the selected contour so that you can avoid and minimize risky situations of potential collisions or reaching machine axes soft limits while using special holders.
SolidCAM Swiss Type F2

Channel Synchronization Manager to Maximize Productivity

Channel Synchronization Manager is an easy-to-use tool that guides you through operations order, clash detection and assisting you to avoid them. Synchronize and optimize all your machining processes for maximum production output.

  • Control an unlimited number of channels, exchange axes within channels, with full support on machining patterns and cutting modes.
  • Clash avoidance feature disables the generation of G-code or simulation if any clash issue in the defined synchronization is detected, taking into account the machine kinematics, axes sharing, and synchronization wait-marks rules.
  • Reduce machining time and stablize the part machining with Sharing Axes and Drive Unit features with two turning operations on different turrets synchronization.
