Factory Approved Post-Processing & Machine Simulation for MODIG Machine Tools
Montreal, April 14, 2014 – ICAM Technologies Corporation (ICAM) has entered into a Strategic Marketing Agreement with Modig Machine Tool (Modig) from Virserum, Sweden. This agreement provides ICAM access to Modig’s proprietary machine and controller information and other machine related specifications.
The sharing of technical knowledge and other resources allows customers to benefit from the rapid and successful integration of factory tested post‐processors and machine simulators for Modig’s full line of machine tools for single CAM or multi‐CAM manufacturing environments. Modig’s sales team will also be equipped with ICAM demonstration software that will allow them show all advanced machine features and functions to prospects, virtually, from their laptops.
This agreement also enables customers to benefit from ICAM’s 42 years of NC post‐processing experience with multi‐axis machining applications including path planning, tool‐tip programming, coordinate frame transformations, NURBS interpolation and arc fitting of point‐to‐point data.
Additionally, ICAM’s integrated machine tool simulation solution enables NC programmers to graphically simulate and test programs for collisions easily and automatically during post‐processing, before the machine code is implemented within the production environment.
“David Modig, President at Modig Machine Tools says, ICAM’s unique post‐processing and simulation products allow our customers to take full advantage our machine’s capabilities. And with ICAM’s Virtual Machine, customers can graphically simulate and test their NC programs during post‐processing; thereby, minimizing costly prove‐outs on the shop floor.”
“CAM is strongly committed to the European aerospace market by providing leading‐edge post‐processing and simulation solutions,” says John Nassr, ICAM’s President. “With ICAM and Modig’s strengthened relationship, customers can take comfort in knowing that they will have easier access to Modig’s highly productive and accurate machines in single or multi‐ CAM environments.”
MODIG’s Dynamic Clamping Assembly Driven by ICAM’s Integrated Post-Processor & Simulator Video
Modig Machine Tool was founded in 1948 in Virserum, Sweden. Right from the beginning, the focus was on machine building and Modig’s lathes, universal drills and machining centers that quickly became well known all over the world. During the 1980’s Modig started to develop machining centers for high-speed machining. In 1987 the first center was introduced in the market and since then, Modig has constantly developed new and improved products for high speed machining applications. Modig is family owned and renowned as one of the world’s leading companies within the high-speed machining technology market that specialize in aircraft production equipment. Modig’s customers usually purchase a whole concept where idea and problem solving, manufacturing, testing, training and support are all integral parts. Boeing Airbus, SAAB, Embraer, Gulfstream, Bombardier and Spirit are among the companies using Modig products. For more information, visit www.modig.se.
