Powerful Roughing and the Finest Finish Toolpaths available for 3D Machining!

Experience 3D Machining take to an entirely new level of smoothness, efficiency and smart machining. with the finest toolpaths available anywhere for 3D machining. SolidCAM HSR/HSM module is very powerful and market proven 3D high-speed machining modules for complex 3D parts, aerospace parts, molds, tools and dies.

It offers unique machining and linking strategies for generating 3D high-speed toolpaths. It smooths the paths of both cutting move and retracts, wherever possible, to maintain a continuous machine tool motion – an essential requirement for machining higher feed rates and eliminating dwelling.

HSM – High Speed Finishing

With SolidCAM’s HSM modules, retracts to high Z levels are kept to a minimum. Angled where possible and smoothed by arcs,  retracts do not go any higher than necessary, minimizing air cutting and reducing machine time.

The result of HSM is n efficient and smooth toolpath that translates to increased surface quality, less wear on your tools and longer lifer for your machine tools. With demands for ever-shorter lead and production times, lower costs and improved quality, High Speed Machining is a must in today’s machine shops.

The SolidCAM HSM module features several enhancements to CAM technology that make high speed operations possible, including avoiding sharp angles in the tool path, ensuring that the tool stays in contact with the part as much as possible, and optimizing non-machining moves to reduce air cutting and generating smooth and tangential lead in/out.

Any 3D machining strategy can be controlled by specifying the surface slope angles to be machined or by specifying the machining boundary. A comprehensive set of boundary creations tools are provided, including silhouette boundaries, cutter contact area boundaries, shallow boundaries, rest area boundaries and user defined boundaries.

HSM – 3D Machining to the Highest Level

SolidCAM HSM module is a powerful solution for all users who demand advanced High-Speed Machining capabilities. It can also be used to improve the productivity of older CNC’s with reduced air cutting and smoothing arcs that maintain continuous tool motion.
