CAM-POST High Speed Machining Module
Increases production productivity and efficiency
Reduce Cycle Times: The “look-ahead” ability of CAM-POST HSM allows users to machine at higher continuous feed-rates resulting in shortened manufacturing time.
Maintains accuracy at higher feed-rates: As an added bonus, feed-rate control allows machine operators to cut parts more quickly without any accuracy loss.
Controller replacement or retrofitting is not required: CAM-POST HSM can control the feed-rate of virtually any NC machine while preserving expensive controller investments.
Compatible with all major CAD / CAM / PLM systems: CAM-POST HSM is a CAD / CAM system independent solution that can be configured for multiple CAD / CAM / PLM systems.
CAM-POST HSM offers two HSM methods:
- For users with an HSM equipped control, CAM-POST HSM will generate the appropriate machine code data to activate and deactivate HSM machining functions on the controller. In addition, CAM-POST HSM will compute the actual average tool velocity and machining time by utilizing the HSM information that was provided.
- For users that do not have an HSM control, CAM-POST HSM will use overshoot table and / or controller parameters to emulate the functions of an HSM control. CAM-POST HSM utilizes feed-rate stepping to insure that the tool respects the programmed tolerance during contouring.
