What is NX CAM?

NX CAM is a stand-alone, in-depth, highly flexible NC programming system that allows users to maximize the value of their investments in the latest most efficient and most capable machine tools. Preconfigured and modular, NX CAM is built to be easily deployed and used all while providing a low cost of ownership.

The Benefits of NX CAM


CAM Key Capabilities


Drilling - addresses drilling, reaming, boring, tapping, peck drilling, and custom cycles. Automated hole making is available with the feature based machining options.


CAM Drilling


Turning – a complete solution that is easy enough to use on simple programs and capable enough to tackle your toughest geometry in multi-spindle, multi-turret applications. The system can work with solids or wireframe or even 2D profiles.



CAM Turning

3 - Axis Milling

3-Axis milling – for roughing, rest milling, semi-finishing, and finishing of contoured surfaces, with a complete set of milling strategies to address the challenges of complex geometry. This capability includes additional functions needed for high-speed machining.

Wire EDM

Wire EDM – a complete solution for programming 2 4-Axis wire EDM machines. A range of wire operations is available, including multi-pass profiling, wire reversing and area removal.





2 1/2 - Axis Milling

2 1/2-Axis roughing patterns can be applied based on basic boundary data or solid geometry. Zig-zag, offset, and plunge milling are examples of the toolpaths provided. High speed roughing tool paths such as trochoidal are available here. Feature based machining functions automate the identification and programming of slots and faces.


Synchronization – a graphical means of displaying an unlimited number of channels, with scrolling code in a choice of formats, time displays and with functions to add wait and sync codes. The Synchronization Manager is directly linked to the internal postprocessor and runs from posted output for the greatest accuracy.

Machining Simulation

Machining simulation – to avoid tying up a machine in unproductive prove-outs, the integrated machine tool simulation provides a more complete simulation than most systems with its machine code driven motion.

5 - Axis Milling

NX CAM Modules and Packages:

5-Axis milling – NX CAM offers highly flexible 5-Axis programming functions combining highly automated elements for tedious tasks such as geometry selection and detailed user control for precise machining.
