A Cloud-based PCB CAM and DFM SaaS Service
Frontline InCAM® is a comprehensive CAM system that performs fast, high-precision CAM tooling. Easy to use, Frontline InCAM® offers improved CAM productivity and advanced data integrity and fault indication in a collaborative work environment.
Achieve results fast with Check & Fix tools, background processing and system-wide automation. Run global repairs on any layer and undo or rerun selected repairs with new parameters while other tasks run in the background, using the computer’s multi-core CPU capabilities.
Find out how Frontline InCAM® can help you manage and protect job data:
Frontline InCAM® is the first and only CAM system to offer true collaborative processing. Use the Lock Steps/Layers feature to co-tool jobs without coming into conflict with other operators. The result: increased productivity with high data integrity.
Frontline InCAM®’s uncluttered desktop provides the optimum work environment. With related features grouped together, the tools you need are always at hand. Features are designed for maximum ease-of-use with minimum training. Create a customized CAM Guide to guide your operators step by step through the process flow.

Frontline InCAM® functions can be automated to deliver fast, standardized outputs. By combining standard scripting languages with Frontline InCAM® line mode commands, you can improve accuracy and cost-efficiency.
Frontline InCAM® is the first and only CAM system to offer true collaborative processing allowing you to co-tool jobs without coming into conflict with other operators. The result: increased productivity with high data integrity.
Run checklists, running several analysis or DFM action on several layers, in the background and start viewing results as soon as the first action is ready on the first layer. Results will gradually become available to the user while the checklist continues to run in background. In addition, on multi-core processors, this ability enables to split the actions in the checklist to run on separate processor cores.
Increase speed and efficiency with Frontline InCAM®’s extensive range of DFM and analysis tools.
Check & Fix allows you to modify DFM results. Undo problematic results, enforce a fix when the DFM is rejected due to limitations, or rerun a DFM with different parameters and edit results.
Automatic panelization tools guarantee optimum board placement inside the panel and the most economical use of board materials.
Easily create rout drawings from blueprint or customer data using the Rout Editor. With flexible drawing tools, you can accurately draw the path of any rout layer and avoid manual edits in the machine rout file after output.
Use the NC Manager to combine drill and rout files and achieve the fastest throughput in the NC department. NC files can also be split over different runs or different machines.
Prepare job data for output using the Output module to convert layers into transferable output formats. Verify the success of the output via a graphic postview of the output file or using the Compare Layers feature.
The first stage of the Frontline InCAM® process is automatic input, run from the Read-In subsystem. Auto input automatically imports customer design data into Frontline InCAM® and transforms it into a single job file, with steps, layers and graphical data. Auto input supports a wide range of input formats and syntaxes, allowing you to accommodate a diverse customer base.

The 1-up Editor allows you to view and edit board layers while providing selection tools and advanced functions, such as copper area calculation, automatic pad substitution, automatic BGA/SMD recognition, teardrop creation, layer compare and more. This module also enables the possibility to perform basic manual panelization. For automatic panelization, see the Automatic Panelization module.
The Design Analyzer allows you to review designs before, during and after tooling, facilitating interactive graphic control over all pre-production engineering parameters. The Design Analyzer offers layer-specific analyses.
The Output subsystem prepares job data for output to a range of machines and systems and converts layers into transferable output formats according to user-defined instructions. You can verify the success of the output by generating a graphic postview of the output file or comparing the postview file to the original board layer, using Compare Layers. Then check that the two are identical.

The Frontline InCAM® Interface package is a seat with reduced functionality, compared to a full graphic editor seat, and can be used for the following purpose:
The goal of the Genesis Film Optimization Process is to add as many layers as possible to the least number of output film layers which are produced specifically for films creation. The film layers created can be created from layers selected from various jobs or a specific job only; the job layers are labeled, added to an output film layer and output to a specific file format which is used to create films.
The Drawing & Dimensioning editor is a module that allows you to create and print dimensions on any layer and print them into a PDF document or to a printer.
In order to identify the individual PCB boards on the production panel or within the delivery panel it is often required to add a unique identification number to each PCB or delivery panel in the production panel. The PCB Numbering Editor adds a unique index number to each PCB on the panel which is written as a text features inside every PCB layer image in the panel. If the panel contains nested steps, the numbering can either be done flat (each PCB will have a unique index in the production panel) or nested (each PCB will have a unique index number in the delivery panel.
