High Speed Machining and Process Planning

The high-speed machining (HSM) capabilities in NX CAM help you reduce machining time by ensuring that cutting tools consistently perform at their maximum material removal rates. At the same time, you can extend life of cutting tools by preventing overloading and damage.

A manufacturing process plan describes what is being manufactured, how it will be manufactured, what resources will be required and where it will be produced.
