2018 IIC Conference - Presentations

Monday, 9/12

11:00 to 11:55 a.m. / W-192-B

Session Topic: Discover Adaptive Post-Processing — The Evolution of Machine Tool Simulation

Adaptive post-processing is a new technology that allows CAD/CAM users to concentrate on programming for production. In one process, this technology can post-process the programmed CAM part program for the selected machine tool, automatically remove machine over-travels, remove air-cut motions, eliminate collisions with in-process stock, and optimize feed-rate.

This unique, integrated process removes the traditional manufacturing solutions process that incorporates a sequential process, including CAM programming, post-processing, G-code machine simulation, and error reporting. Adaptive post-processing also offers complete flexibility to move a 5-axis manufacturing program to differing machines equipped with different controllers and machine kinematics.

Adaptive post-processing automatically adapts the CAM tool-path program to the selected CNC machine, dramatically reducing (25% to 35%) both programming time as well as machine cycle time.
