Drive Smarter Product Decisions with NX CAM

NX for Manufacturing provides you with a complete solution for part manufacturing, from CAM to CNC controller. You can improve your part manufacturing productivity:

  • Reduce NC programming and machining time
  • Precisely control your 5-Axis milling
  • Produce better quality parts
  • Maximize use of manufacturing resources

A Complete Computer-Aided Manufacturing Solution

NX provides a complete manufacturing solution for machine tool programming, post-processing and machining simulation. NX CAM's advanced functions in each of its modules can maximize returns on your investments. Discover a wide range of functionality, from simple NC programming to high-speed and multi-axis machining, enabling you to address many tasks with one system.

End your struggles with 5-Axis Programming

If your CAM system can’t handle multi-axis, it’s holding you back. At Applied CAx we run our own DMG-Mori DMU-50 5-axis and we use NX to drive it every day. With 5-axis milling, you can create precisely controlled tool paths on complex surfaces with effective collision and gouge checking.

Through our affiliate company, our machine tool experts create custom order post-processors and simulation kits for 5-axis machines, such as the popular DMU 50 from DMG / Mori Seiki, and an array of machine lineups from leading manufacturers.

The flexibility of NX CAM means that you can easily complete the most demanding jobs. Adopted across many industries including aerospace, automotive, machinery, mold and die, and medical device manufacturing.

Chris Aronson designs the machining process at Arnprior Aerospace while knuckling down on NC programming as well. At Arnprior they currently program for 5-axis manufacturing for a Makino MAG1 and a Mori Seiki NV5000 with a Trunnion 5ax.

Arnprior currently uses NX for both CAD and CAM in their fixture design and NC programming. They say that NX is great at modeling 3D shapes. Chris also utilizes the integration between the CAD and CAM packages. He’s not currently using competing software, but says the little he’s used it, NX’s modeling shines way above what MasterCAM is capable of. NX does well with complex geometry while MasterCAM struggles. That said, he’d like to see NX simplify some of its complex tool paths.

Chris says, "Applied CAx's support has been exceptional. Every time we need a question answered they are prompt at getting it answered. They will even come out to our shop, if they have time, to provide help with modeling and tool paths. They have been a great partner."

"I've attended a few Applied trainings on the CAM side. The classes are always informative and sometimes surprise with little things to make everyday programming easier."

The support from Applied CAx has been excellent. The team has always been willing to help with any issues I encounter. They have gone above and beyond to provide us with phenomenal support. Together they have helped me with Post modifications, Modeling, CAM questions and everything in between. Everyone has been friendly, patient and always follow up to make sure my needs have been met.

Applied CAx have always been very supportive of me. I struggled initially and Applied CAx set up video conferencing to coach me through my issues. I have no complaints with their service and would strongly suggest purchasing software from Applied CAx.
