All NC post-processors and machine simulations are created using CAM-POST® and Virtual Machine® - ICAM’s advanced NC post-processing and machine tool simulation solutions, respectively.
Customers can leverage ICAM’s extensive NC post-processing expertise with advanced multi-axes machining applications and techniques such as path planning, high-speed machining, tool-tip programming, coordinate frame transformations, NURBS interpolation and arc fitting of point-to-point data, to increase productivity and maximize production efficiency.
Within the context of this partnership, ICAM has developed a Mastercam Extractor featured within the latest version of Virtual Machine. Mastercam Extractor allows for the automatic data extraction of the tool, part and stock including fixtures and holders, as described in Mastercam X2, X3 and X4; thereby, enabling NC programmers to easily and efficiently create machine simulation sessions.
Deploying Virtual Machine as an integrated option to ICAM post-processors, delivers a powerful machine tool simulation solution providing Mastercam programmers with the means to simulate and test NC programs against collisions and over-travel easily and automatically during post-processing.
Mastercam programmers can obtain high-quality and proven ICAM post-processors that support all major machine tools and controllers. Mastercam users can also benefit from ICAM's Integrated PSE solution that allows for advanced NC post-processing, machine tool simulation and verification as well as G-Code simulation within a single integrated software platform.
