We realize that some manufacturers want to explore the enhanced functionality of a top-quality CAM package while also retaining the ability to use the tried-and-true software that’s already in their facility. This offer allows shops to transition gradually to CAMWorks. With our aggressive pricing, we expect a large number of companies to take advantage of this promotion.

TekSoft Software Solutions, an industry leader in developing advanced manufacturing software, will be demonstrating CAMWorks 2007 CAD / CAM and the latest release of FABWorks at IMTS 2006 in Chicago on September 6-13. Information will also be available on the newly announced CAM conversion promotion for users of competitive CAM products.

CAMWorks is a SolidWorks® Certified Gold CAM Product that has provided state-of-the-art machining capabilities seamlessly integrated into the award winning SolidWorks 3D mechanical design software since 1997. The combination of the latest innovations in CAMWorks 2007 and SolidWorks' excellence in design continue to make CAMWorks a premier CAM and mold machining solution.

CAMWorks 2007 delivers a powerful set of over 50 enhancements and new features that improve performance, toolpath quality and control, and ease of use. Performance improvements include faster file save and restore, simulation and toolpath computation. New toolpath controls have been implemented for 2-5 axis milling, turning and wire EDM to improve quality and decrease machining time. In addition, numerous user interface options for display, navigation and working with SolidWorks part configurations make CAMWorks even easier to use.

Highlights in this release of CAMWorks include the following:

  •     A new generation of Automatic Feature Recognition finds additional feature types and provides more editing capability.
  •     Multiple CAMWorks datasets can be saved in the same part file with CAMWorks configurations. These configurations support multiple machines and SolidWorks configurations.
  •     Support for arc fitting in 3-Axis Milling has been extended to all cycles. When this feature is used, the CAMWorks file size is smaller, simulation is faster and the resulting G-code program is smaller.
  •     The machining of part configurations in assembly mode has been enhanced to offer greater flexibility and additional use of SolidWorks part configurations.

TekSoft is offering a limited time conversion program for users of other CAM products to switch to CAMWorks cost-effectively and with a low risk migration of parts. According to Mike Coleman, President and CEO of TekSoft, "We realize that some manufacturers want to explore the enhanced functionality of a top-quality CAM package while also retaining the ability to use the tried-and-true software that’s already in their facility. This offer allows shops to transition gradually to CAMWorks. With our aggressive pricing, we expect a large number of companies to take advantage of this promotion."

The latest version of TekSoft's FABWorks product will also be featured at the show. TekSoft obtained distribution rights for the industry-leading Lantek sheet metal software for punching, laser, water jet, plasma and oxyfuel machines and released the software under the FABWorks name. FABWorks provides an integrated interface between the SolidWorks® design environment and the FABWorks machining environment. Parts that are designed in SolidWorks can be automatically unfolded and transferred directly to FABWorks for machining.
