Convert Your CATIA Program To Production-Ready G-Code in One Step

Most CATIA post-processors are simply a one way translation tool between CATIA and CNC machines, relying on third-party verification and optimization software to provide feedback and identify errors after-the-fact. This cycle of rewriting and retesting NC programs leads to increases in programming costs and unexpected production delays.

ICAM’s Adaptive Post-Processing™ technology provides a unique environment where post-processing, simulation and optimization is combined into one automatic streamlined action. No CAM reprogramming, no re-posting, no trial and error. Just optimized, verified & production-ready G-Code in one integrated workbench that leads to a 25% to 35% savings in programming & machine cycle time.

A Close Partnership for a More Complete Post-Processor Integration

Unlike other post-processors on the market, ICAM’s custom CATIA post-processor solutions are integrated directly into CATIA V4,V5 & V6 in partnership with Dassault Systemes. This allows our post-processing, tool-path optimization and machine simulation to take place directly within CATIA, using the same framework & interface you’re already familiar with.

A CATIA Post-Processor With Proven Real-World Results

Trusted by manufactures around the world, ICAM’s CATIA post-processor solutions have made helped countless businesses reduce costs associated to programming and machining time. Here’s a look at what AVPE & Shape machining had to say in a video produced by Desktop Engineering, ICAM’s official dealer for the UK.

“Our brief to DTE was to optimise our machining process. The market is very competitive, so any small advantage is priceless. The CATIA/ICAM implementation has been quick and flawless and we estimate that it is now saving us more than 20% on machining time.”

Steve Eccles, Technical Manager at AVPE
