Siemens Digital Industries Software makes available the release of Siemens’ NX for manufacturing software, an end-to-end solution for part manufacturing. The software can accelerate machining, program multiple robots, print color parts and generate production-ready CNC programs using a cloud-based technology.

NX CAM software’s new 5-Axis Adaptive Milling, an advanced roughing strategy, enables high material removal rates using fewer setups resulting in shorter machining times. 5-Axis Guiding Curves finishing has been enhanced to include parametric tool-axis interpolation, providing more control for surface finish. Robotic programming now enables users to program and simulate multiple robots to perform machining tasks such as drilling, deburring and polishing.

NX Additive Manufacturing facilitates the process from design model to printed part with integration that eliminates the need to convert and remodel parts between applications. The new Siemens HP MJF Build Processor enables printing of color parts directly out of NX, without the need for third-party build processors. It supports the HP MJF 5200 and HP MJF 540 color series.

Post Hub is a new, cloud-based solution for post-processing that enables a streamlined process to generate production-ready CNC programs. Fully integrated in NX CAM and with more than 1,000 postprocessors, Post Hub can help manufacturers generate programs for a wide range of CNC machine and control configurations.

NX is part of the Xcelerator portfolio, Siemens’ integrated portfolio of software, services and application development platform. Please visit the NX Manufacturing community to learn more about What’s New in NX for Manufacturing.
