Machining Accuracy in CAM Automation with TBMNovember 22, 2021
5 Factors Driving the Adoption of Advanced & Automated CAM SystemDecember 6, 2021
Do you have CNC Wire EDM machines? If so, you know programming these machines is often a challenging, time-consuming task that requires attention to every detail in the program. The slightest program error or miscalculation can result in an expensive part being scrapped. Fortunately, the new HCL CAMWorks WireEDM Pro add-in for SOLIDWORKS makes programming Wire EDM machines fast and easy.
CAMWorks Wire EDM Pro is the result of 30 years of Wire EDM experience at HCL. It includes functionality to automatically analyze the solid model, generate a machining plan for 2 Axis, 2 Axis Taper, and 4 Axis Features and post the G-Code with a single mouse click. This feature is called Solid to G-Code.
Automation and Precise Control
In addition to automation with CAMWorks WireEDM Pro, powerful controls for the operations and toolpaths are also provided. An easy-to-use Operations tree is created automatically. When an operation in the tree is selected, a short list of key parameter settings is displayed, making it easy to quickly change any of the desired settings. A complete list of the parameter settings separated onto easy-to-use tabs, can also be easily displayed using the Edit selection on the right-click menu for any operation in the tree. The combination of both the state-of-the-art automation and precise control over each operation makes the CAMWorks WireEDM Pro system both easy to use and surprisingly powerful. Even complex 2 and 4 axis EDM parts can often be programmed in seconds. The system is both easy to learn and use.
Accurate Post Processing
The post processors for CAMWorks WireEDM Pro are the result of a close collaboration with machine experts, making sure that the generated code is as machine ready as possible. In situations where user preference may require changes, post customization is also available to ensure that the code you take to the machine is the code you run.

Fast and Easy Wire EDM Programming
SOLIDWORKS makes it easy to design even the most complex parts and assemblies, and the new CAMWorks WireEDM Pro makes it fast and easy to create fully associative wire EDM programs directly inside SOLIDWORKS. Programs can now be created right inside the familiar SOLIDWORKS environment and the wire EDM toolpaths will update automatically to design changes. If you own or program CNC Wire EDM machines, CAMWorks WireEDM Pro is a must-have asset for your team. No other wire EDM software offers the ease and speed for programming these precise machines.
