FikusWorks: A complete solution for wire EDM, or an add-in for your Solidworks CAD

Complete solution

FikusWorks is available as a comprehensive CAD/CAM solution, in three different configurations to suit your needs:

  • SolidWorks CAD (parts-only) + Wire EDM CAM
  • SolidWorks CAD (Parts & Assembly) + Wire EDM CAM
  • SolidWorks CAD (Parts & Assembly & Drawings) + Wire EDM CAM

All the tools available in FikusWorks can significantly improve productivity and manufacturing time, such as specific machining wizards for different machines, templates, customizable databases or automatic technological points, which are available to make your work easier and more productive.

FikusWorks is really easy to use. The CAM manager leads the user through the logical sequential process, from defining the geometry and creating the part to cut, to the process definition, calculation and CNC’s program post-processing.

Fully integrated add-in

FikusWorks is also available as an add-in to integrate the best wire EDM CAM solution on the market into your Solidworks platform and start programming the machining immediately.

Once you have finished your CAD tasks, you can directly open the FikusWorks tab in the SolidWorks main menu and start working with the intuitive, easy to use and efficient Fikus CAM solution for wire EDM.

Expert knowledge of the wire EDM technology

FikusWorks includes Fikus Recognition

FikusWorks includes Fikus Recognition

FikusWorks is leading innovation in CAD/CAM for wire edm machining because of its acknowledged expertise in controlling this extremely accurate and sophisticated technology. Our close work with the technology leaders put FikusWorks ahead of other cam packages when it comes to get the most out of your wire edm machine.

With FikusWorks you can machine any contoured mold, die, core, cavity shape or profile. Control every cutting parameter: offsetting, automatic threading, position of the wire, constant and variable taper, and our latest improvement: Auto-fix, control of the remnant size for a better part disengage.

Developed for excellent precision and efficiency

Our Engineers have developed FikusWorks with the objective that the users should go through less and less steps when programming a part. The CAM Manager leads the user through the logical sequential process of the Wire EDM programming, for ultra-precise machining in production shopfloors to high-speed machining in die manufacturing, aerospace medical and other part production industries.

A dedicated technology development for each machine

Each machine was designed to serve a machining purpose, for that reason, postprocessors must be also specific for those machines. A dedicated Technology Wizard and postprocessor for every specific machine has been developed by our engineers to allow you to output your job ready in just seconds, easily and safely. Fikus will generate the machine optimal cutting strategy for your specific machine and job.

The FikusWorks technological point database allows you to define common operations easily and interactively.

Cutting strategies and templates for optimal machining

The automatic feature recognition can detect all features that must be cut of a part with just a few clicks of your mouse.

And if already have defined and tested your best cutting strategy for a part you can save it as a template and use it in the future for other similar parts. You will save time and you will avoid mistakes.

Technology Wizards

Fikus Visualcam includes cutting conditions databases from machines of the main machine makers, new and old. This knowledge will let you automating your programs easily.
