  • SolidCAM vs. Siemens NX vs. MasterCAM - my client's success story

    Colleagues, hello!

    I want to share the following story.

    One of our clients had a need to purchase a CAM system for optimal programming of a large group of CNC machines, namely:

    • DMC 635V Ecoline - milling machine, 3 axes XYZ
    • Kern Evo - milling machine, 4 axes XYZA
    • Kern Triton - milling machine, 5 axes XYZAC
    • Maxmill QMC-500 - milling machine, 4 axes XYZA
    • Maxmill QMC-1050 - milling machine, 5 axes XYZAC
    • ML-480 - turning and milling machine, 3 axes XZC
    • Nakamura SC250MY - turning and milling machine, 4 axes XYZC
    • Okuma LT2000EX2T2MY - complete turning and milling machine, 9 axes, 2 control channels
    • Okuma LT2000EX3T2MY - complete turning and milling machine, 11 axes, 3 control channels

    The client used SOLIDWORKS as a CAD system and PowerMill for milling programming but was looking for a solution that would allow him to program all his machines in one program.

    The choice was between the following programs: SolidCAM, MasterCAM, Siemens NX.

    1. SolidCAM vs. MasterCAM.
    I asked the client why he chose SolidCAM and not MasterCAM?

    He told me that there are three reasons.
    1) SolidCAM has better integration with SOLIDWORKS than MasterCAM.
    2) SolidCAM already has postprocessor support for 3-channel machines (Okuma LT2000EX3T2MY).
    3) We are closer to him and can better provide technical support on-site.


    2. SolidCAM vs. Siemens NX.
    I asked the client why he chose SolidCAM over Siemens NX?

    He answered me that there are three reasons for this too))).
    1) SolidCAM has integration with SOLIDWORKS, but Siemens NX does not and He needs to be retrained.
    2) He doesn't want to use several separate post-processors to program one machine. SolidCAM has good support for "Turret-Table" configurations and multi-channel support. He will be able to use a single post-processor to program complex machine tools (Okuma LT2000EX2T2MY and LT2000EX3T2MY).
    3) We are closer to him and can better provide technical support on-site.

    Now a new version of SolidCAM 2021 has been released and the client is very happy to choose us.

    Thank you for your attention,

    Sincerely,
    Dmitry Anpilogov
