ExpertCAM Overview

Production NC programming has typically been a slow, expensive, error-prone process. ExpertCAM changes all that. With ExpertCAM, your NC programmers beat the backlog and create accurate, efficient part programs more quickly than ever before, with at large and small manufacturing firms alike successfully increasing NC programmer productivity with ExpertCAM.

ExpertCAM’s powerful visualization tools allow users to review and optimize machining operations before a part program is released. ExpertCAM makes short order of your machining operations — for milling, turning, flame cutting and punching — in one effective application package.

ExpertCAM accepts part geometry from popular CAD applications and links directly to ExpertCAD and ToolDesigner, accelerating engineering changes and design data preparation for machining. Users can automatically reference tools and fixtures from electronic databases or generate their own tooling while working with ExpertCAM. They can also display true 2D and 3D representations of the tool and tool path in relation to part geometry and fixtures. All of which saves time, increases accuracy, and eliminates tool collisions.

ExpertCAM supports 2.5 axis contouring and 5-axis positioning for milling applications, along with 2- and 4-axis lathe programming. A comprehensive library of post-processors are included for both mill and lathe along with the ability to order custom post processors directly from AMT Software. So you have one cost-effective system that supports all your machining requirements. ExpertCAM comes bundled with a license for ExpertCAD to make short work of part data preparation for machining. In short, ExpertCAM is truly a complete, comprehensive CAD/CAM system.
