NX for manufacturing

NX CAM software

Maximize your manufacturing performance and gain a digital advantage using our advanced computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software.

How NX CAM software can boost your productivity

Transform your entire part manufacturing process by using a single, comprehensive CAM software. Automate NC programming, accelerate machining, and achieve high accuracy using advanced toolpath technologies and integrated G-code-driven simulation.

Discover the capabilities of NX CAM software.

Prismatic parts machining

Rapidly program prismatic parts using advanced 2.5-axis milling and turning technologies.

Volume-based milling, automated feature-based machining, and interactive mill-turn programming capabilities simplify prismatic programming.

Using automated capabilities in NX CAM software, reduce programming time by up to 90% while generating optimized machining operations for high-precision components.

Mold, die and electrode machining

Reduce lead time using the latest 3-axis milling methods to produce molds and dies with a near-mirror finish. Powerful capabilities to manufacture high-quality tooling components include: 

  • High-speed cutting methods 
  • Automated rest milling 
  • Smooth finishing toolpaths 
  • Multi-axis machining  

Design and program electrodes with an automated process using the integrated CAD and CAM capabilities in NX software.
