Modern Machine Shop 203 IMTS 2018 Products On Display Software Creates Environment for Postprocessing Steps ICAM Technologies' Adaptive Post-Processing software creates an integrated environment for the independent steps of postprocessing, toolpath optimization and G-code simulation. Integrating the steps together in this way can reduce NC programming and machine cycle time by up to 35 percent, the company says. The software enables automatic toolpath corrections and simultaneous execution of the various steps in one concurrent operation. It reduces errors associated with the serial method of toolpath creation, postprocessing, machine simulation and G-code verification. It does this while also reducing programming time. According to ICAM, the creation of tool paths using its software eliminates the need to reprogram the part for a new target CNC machine. This frees manufacturers to choose whatever machine makes more sense at a given time and increases productivity of existing machines. | ICAM Technologies Corp.-Canada | East, Level 3, Booth 133217 TOP-CLASS, COMPACT MACHINE TECHNOLOGY Visit us at the IMTS and learn more about our ProfiMill compact and the world's first compact boring mill TM 125 with a Monolithâ„¢ bed!
