SKM DCAM is an independent, efficient offline programming system for the preparation of trajectory-based laser processes and the simulation of laser hardening, -welding and -cutting. This gives the so-called laser cladding (or LMD) a very significant role. Also conventional welding processes, such as the arc welding and generating/coating, are realized.
SKM DCAM is useful for the production of prototypes, as well as for the repairing and the coating of various components in the field of Additive Manufacturing.
The open postprocessor technology enables you to create NC programs for all current machine and control types. Up to 9 simultaneous axes are supported and so it is possible to generate programs for robotics systems with a simultaneous rotational-axis positioner and simultaneous linear axis. However, it doesnt matter which type of robot is used.
In addition, SKM DCAM has import interfaces to all major CAD systems and the possibility to handle scan data for the realization of the path planning. Also included is a clash detective and collision avoidance.
