Montreal – August 15, 2016 – ICAM Technologies Corporation announces that it will launch *Adaptive Post-Processing™ V22, the latest version of its integrated Post-processing, Simulation & Optimization technology, at IMTS 2016 (Booth: E-3217).
Adaptive Post-Processing™ is new technology that changes traditional CNC programming methodology by creating a unique integrated environment for the independent steps of post-processing, tool-path optimization and G-code simulation.
This new methodology allows all these steps to be executed simultaneously permitting cross-communication among them; thereby, allowing for automatic tool-path corrections, all in one concurrent operation.
This integrated solution allows for the in-process evaluation of feedback from the post-processor and machining simulator to automatically create an optimized NC program for a target CNC machine. This occurs all in one step and in one process allowing CAD/CAM users to automatically and efficiently reduce NC programming and machining cycle time.
The iterative steps of the traditional serial method of tool-path creation, post-processing, machine simulation and G-code verification, most often generate errors leaving the tedious investigative work as to where the errors occurred in the hands of the NC programmer.
ICAM’s Adaptive Post-Processing ™ solution, not only eliminates these errors while reducing programming time, but also allows the programmer to adopt ICAM’s philosophy to “create tool-paths for the part” as opposed to the traditional method of programming the part for the machine while worrying about its kinematics and collisions. Creating tool-paths while using Adaptive Post-Processing also eliminates the reprogramming of the part for a new target CNC machine.
