ICAM Partners with Major Mastercam Reseller in Japan – JBM

ICAM Technologies Corporation is pleased to announce the signing of a Dealership Agreement with JBM of Japan – the leading Mastercam distributor and support center in the world. Under this agreement, JBM will sell, develop and support ICAM’s integrated NC post-processing and machining simulation products behind Mastercam to the local Japanese market.

Integrated post-processing and machining simulation is made possible with Virtual Machine® and CAM-POST®ICAM’s machine tool simulator and NC post-processing development tool, respectively. This combination delivers an innovative simulation environment that provides Mastercam NC programmers with the means to test programs against collisions and over-travel, easily and automatically, during post-processing – a unique feature in the NC manufacturing industry.

Machining simulation sessions have been simplified with the launch of ICAM’s Mastercam Extractor featured inside the latest version of Virtual Machine. To create machine model in Virtual Machine, Mastercam Extractor allows for the automatic data extraction of the tool, part, stock, fixtures and holders, as described in Mastercam X2, X3 and X4.

With ICAM’s release of dedicated products to the Mastercam market, Mastercam programmers can now benefit from NC manufacturing solutions ranging from standard 3-Axis Mill and Lathes to complex 5-Axis Mill and Mill / Turn applications from within Mastercam.

“Our customers require advanced and reliable post-processors as well as machining simulation,” stated Taiji Sano, President and CEO of JBM. “What makes ICAM’s products so unique is that simulation can be done in real-time during post-processing; thereby, allowing programmers to check for collisions, over-travel, surface gouges and excess material, effectively and efficiently.”

“JBM is the world’s largest and most successful Mastercam reseller that employs a highly skilled technical staff with a reputation for being technology visionaries in the NC manufacturing market,” says John J. Nassr, President of ICAM. “JBM is the ideal partner to provide and support ICAM’s Integrated PSE solution to the local Japanese market.”
