ICAM’s Adaptive Post-Processing™ Solutions for Modig Machine Tools
Adaptive Post-Processing is a unique ICAM technology that allows for NC post-processing, G-code simulation and tool-path optimization all working together in a single concurrent process. At the core of this technology, Adaptive Post-Processing relies on various ICAM products including CAM-POST®, Virtual Machine® and Control Emulator™.
CAM-POST® – ICAM’s post-processors support all major CAD/CAM/PLM systems, CNC controllers and machine tools on the market and include advanced forward-looking optimization features such as planning, rotary axes pre-positioning and winding to optimize the machining process while avoiding dwell marks, over-travel and rotary repositioning.
Virtual Machine® – ICAM’s machine simulator enables NC programmers to graphically simulate and test programs, easily and automatically, against collisions and over-travel during post-processing. The post-processor can then calculate alternative options to optimize the generated NC code.
Control Emulator™ – ICAM’s control emulator is a software option that allows for the simulation of G-code. With this option, NC programmers and machine operators can verify the final G-code before running the program on the actual machine. This process enables the user to avoid costly prove-outs and reduce scrap material while increasing machine utilization on the shop floor.
