Custom Multi-Axis NC Post-Processors and Simulators Mastercam
ICAM offers advanced custom multi-axis NC post-processors and integrated machine simulation solutions for simple 3-axis mills as well as complex 5-axis mills & mill/turn applications for Mastercam users.
All NC post-processors and machine simulators are created using CAM-POST® and Virtual Machine® – ICAM’s advanced NC post-processing and machine tool simulation solution, respectively.
Customers can leverage ICAM’s extensive NC post-processing expertise with advanced multi-axes machining applications and techniques such as path planning, high-speed machining, tool-tip programming, coordinate frame transformations, NURBS interpolation and arc fitting of point-to-point data, to increase productivity and maximize production efficiency.
Within the context of this partnership, ICAM has developed a Mastercam Extractor featured within Virtual Machine. Mastercam Extractor allows for the automatic data extraction of the tool, part and stock including fixtures and holders, as described in Mastercam X2 and later. This enables NC programmers to easily and efficiently create machine simulation sessions.
Deploying Virtual Machine as an integrated option to ICAM post-processors, delivers a powerful machine tool simulation solution providing Mastercam programmers with the means to simulate and test NC programs against collisions and over-travel easily and automatically during post-processing.
Mastercam programmers can obtain high-quality and proven ICAM post-processors that support all major machine tools and controllers. Mastercam users can also benefit from ICAM’s Adaptive Post-Processing™ solution that allows for advanced NC post-processing, machine tool simulation and verification as well as G-Code simulation within a single integrated software platform.
