NX CAM is the world leader in Computer-Aided Manufacturing.


NX CAM is the world leader in Computer-Aided Manufacturing. It provides a complete set of NC programming capabilities in a single CAM system as well as an integrated set of manufacturing software applications. These applications facilitate part modeling, tool design, and inspection programming – all based on proven NX technology.

The NX CAM Difference

Advanced Manufacturing for Smarter Product Decisions

Maximize Machine Tool Capability
Use one CAM system for all applications: program complex parts with flexible and accurate 5-axis machining, drive the latest generation of multi-function machines and complete the part with a superior surface finish.
Create Production-Ready Output
Machine right the first time with an internal postprocessor, an extensive online postprocessor library, and an integrated G-code has driven machine tool simulation.
Enable High-Speed Machining
Successful high-speed roughing in NX maintains high metal removal rates while managing tool loads. HSM finishing operations, such as the Streamline feature, produce smooth flowing cutting patterns that result in fine finishes at high feed rates.
Leverage Programming Automation
Reduce programming time by 90 percent. NX CAM automatically recognizes machining features, it allows you to build the correct machining process from a library of operations, you can use PMI model data to drive machining process selection, and you can use the machining knowledge editor to add new operations.


Maximize Your Productivity with NX CAM

NX has been adopted across many industries, delivering proven capability for manufacturing in the aerospace, automotive, medical device, mold and die, and machinery industries. The software delivers a complete and proven system for machine tool programming. NX CAM applies leading-edge technology and advanced machining methods to maximize efficiency of manufacturing engineers and NC programmers. As a single solution set for manufacturing engineering, NX offers options for CAD, CAM and CMM programming, as well as for tool design – all in one system.

Take advantage of the latest machine tool technologies and manufacturing processes:

  • Improve surface finish on parts
  • Handle complex job requirements with ease
  • Save up to 90 percent on programming time by automating routine tasks
  • Minimize the time and cost involved in design changes
  • Increase efficiency of NC programmers and reduce the need for extensive training
