Shorten your CNC Machining Time
Because the ICAM Adaptive Post-Processing™ and Simulation solution fully understands the machine’s kinematics, spindle power, workpiece, the machine environment, the NC controller and tool cutting conditions, it is able to automatically remove any undesirable and inefficient air-cuts and unsafe approaches of the tool to the workpiece. While automatically correcting for these expensive NC program inefficiencies, ICAM Adaptive Post-Processing optimizes the machining feed-rate based on tool engagement into material, while respecting your tool recommended chip-loading data; all of which help reduce machine cycle time by up to 25% !
CAD/CAM System Freedom
ICAM’s Adaptive Post-Processing™ and Simulation solution integrates with all popular CAD/CAM systems such as CATIA, NX, PTC creo, PowerMILL, Mastercam etc., allowing you to buy only one post-processor and simulation software solution for the CNC machines you have regardless of the CAD/CAM system you use to program parts. This new freedom allows your investment in ICAM products to live as long as you own your CNC machine and further allows for your introduction and replacement of CAD/CAM systems without having to reinvest in new post-processing and simulation technology which has been the expensive and painful norm in our industry since its inception. This freedom now allows you to make your post-processing and simulation software investment a part of your CNC machine investment, where it belongs! Furthermore, all ICAM products are regularly upgraded to accommodate changes to your CAD/CAM systems and CNC machines as they evolve.
Investing in ICAM’s innovative and scalable technology can begin with just a single ICAM developed custom post-processor to which other ICAM software modules may be added at any time to create the complete Adaptive Post- Processing™ solution. Or at the other end of the spectrum, you may prefer to use ICAM’s complete Adaptive Post- Processing™ development platform to write and manage your own post-processors, machine simulation and optimization functions. All of these solutions are available from ICAM directly or via our network of ICAM trained dealers.
