CNC controller retrofitting or replacement is not required
CAM-POST HSM allows NC programmers to exploit the benefits of high speed feed-rate control on machines that are not equipped with HSM without expensive CNC controller retrofitting or replacement. Users must simply input control parameters and / or overshoot tables (further details provided below) and CAM-POST HSM will automatically emulate advanced HSM functions.
Provides a competitive advantage
CAM-POST HSM utilizes the same “look-ahead” algorithms to control feed-rate that are incorporated in CNC machine controllers supporting HSM. Subsequently, CAM-POST HSM provides manufacturers with competitive advantages associated with high speed machining applications such as increased product quality, reduced production cost and shortened cycle-time.
Supports all CNC controllers
CAM-POST HSM supports controllers that offer HSM functions as well. All HSM control specifications are captured within CAM-POST QUEST HSM section. Subsequently, CAM-POST generates machine code data supporting specific HSM control functions and calculates the average tool velocity and machining time based on the information provided.
