Seamless Integration of iMachining in Siemens NX CAM

The proven iMachining technology is an integrated plugin for Siemens NX. NX CAM users can easily generate iMachining 2D and 3D operations inside the familiar NX CAM environment, using all the advanced NX functionality and post processors for their specific machine tools.

Saves 70 % and More in CNC Machining Time

Often, iMachining users achieve more than 70% reduction of cutting time. It’s like buying another CNC machine without the cost and upkeep. 

Cut the Hardest Materials

Using iMachining for NX, even the hardest materials can be cut with the smallest tools or low power CNC machines.

Drastically Extends Tool Life

Customers can increases tool life by 5 times or more as full depth-of-cut ensures that the entire tool is utilized rather than only the bottom part. Also, by always automatically keeping the tool in its “sweet spot”, cutter wear and breakage are dramatically reduced.  

iMachining Technology Wizard

The exclusive, patented Technology Wizard takes out the guesswork of how fast to run your parts by automatically providing all CNC machining parameters to obtain the optimal results. The industry’s first and only true wizard uses an advanced, patented technology that automatically produces optimized feeds, speeds, depth and width of cuts – all specifically for your CNC machines, your materials and your tools.
