SWOOD CAM

SWOOD CAM is capable of managing all types of NC woodworking machines and features intuitive tools that allow you to create your programs and production documents directly inside SOLIDWORKS.

FUNCTIONALITY

  • SWOOD CAM Library
  • SOLIDWORKS Integration
  • Encoding

SWOOD CAM Library

Generate a library of CAM operations and by adding various tools and aggregates. An aggregate wizard allows for easy creation and machining macros can be used to quickly apply operations via drag and drop.

SOLIDWORKS Integration

As SWOOD Cam is fully integrated into SOLIDWORKS you can view manufacturing tools in the feature manager, simulate machining operations and material removal and easily associate tool paths with SOLIDWORKS geometry. The tool paths created are parametric and so any changes to model geometry can easily be brought through to update the tool paths.

Key SWOOD CAM Features

  • 3, 4 & 5 axis machining
  • Automatic feature recognition – Contour, Drill, Pocket, Groove & more
  • Automatic modulation of feed speed according to grain direction
  • Multiple datum definition
  • Flat bed or pod and rail machine compatible
  • Laser layout projection
  • Suction hood management
  • Parametric worktable management
  • Nesting module as an option

Encoding

SWOOD CAM is compatible with a range of machine manufactures and is able to encode into multiple machine language outputs. This prevents the need for multiple programs and helps cut down on repetitive work.
