With CAM-POST, you can develop and refine your own CNC post-processors that leverage the power of over 45 years of industry experience for any and all your existing CNC machine/controller pairings.
 
A CNC Post-Processor Builder with Advanced Capabilities
 
Embedded CNC optimization technology delivers improvements to part quality, production output and reduced cycle time – the real measure of a post-processor can be taken from the quality of NC code it produces. Several of CAM-POST’s most powerful features, providing the user with on-demand access to advanced functionalities in the multi-axes machining world, are outlined below.
 
CAM-POST now includes support for 6-Axis kinematic solutions, including advanced features tri-rotary heads as well as simultaneous co-linear shared travel.
 
Intuitive Graphical Interface
Quickly generate advanced NC post-processors thanks to a comprehensive point-and-click implementation wizard.
 
Less Coding, More Cutting
Address many complex NC programming situations through our extensive GUI, rather than developing logic through macros.
 
Rotary-Turn-Around
RTA is logic that can retract a tool from the material and reset to the alternate pose when rotary or linear travel is exhausted during continuous machining. Rotary axis winding and pre-positioning features provide extended uninterrupted 5D cutting. Preferred rotary positioning can be used to ensure better operator visibility or to enforce a consistent 5-axis pose where possible.
 
Path Planning
Using ICAM’s unique look-ahead technology, CAM-POST automatically selects the best possible path during a rapid positioning motion, avoiding any undesirable dwell marks resulting from a required rotary-turn-around. Path planning also prepositions rotary axes that are parallel to the tool if it discovers that they must be rotated midway through a continuous cut.
 
Rotating Tool Center Point
RTCP is a feature of advanced controllers that permit the user to output tool tip coordinates instead of control point coordinates supporting actual axes, vector, dual point, Euler, RPY or virtual axes rotary control methods. The control computes the kinematics and handles linearization for  simpler and more transportable programs, as well as full 5D tool compensation. RTCP activation and deactivation is available in the CAM program, while maintaining control over travel limit conditions and simulations.
 
Local Coordinate Frame Transformation
CAM-POST supports translation, rotation, scale, mirror and additive transformations. Activation of coordinate frames can be set automatically, whenever the tool orientation changes, or can be set on demand. LCS also includes recognition of preferred coordinate frame hints from the CAM system. All travel, feed and timing calculations continue to be based on the true physical configuration of the machine.
 
NURBS & Arc-Fitting
NURBS fitting module allows manufacturers to machine smoother, more accurate parts in significantly less time. Interfacing with CNC controllers supporting NURBS output formats, CAM-POST NURBS fitting is capable of defining continuous curve segments with one-quarter program data as compared to traditional linear programming.
 
High Speed Machining Module
Implementing ICAM’s CAM-POST High Speed Machining (HSM) module significantly increases productivity from currently installed CNC machines while preserving expensive CNC controller investments.
 
Integrate ICAM’s Simulation & Optimization Solutions for Even More Savings
 
ICAM’s entire product lineup is designed with high-level modularity in mind. This means manufacturers can take advantage of advanced CNC simulation & tool-path optimization solutions at the post-processing level, in a approach called Adaptive Post-Processing. This methods leads to savings of up to 35% in programming and manufacturing cycle time.

Three Powerful NC Solutions in One Streamlined Process
Adaptive Post-Processing™ is a new NC programming methodology that combines post-processing, simulation and optimization in one concurrent operation, saving you from 25% to 35% in programming and machine cycle time.
 
The Adaptive Post-Processing Advantage
 
In sharp contrast to the above, ICAM’s new Adaptive Post-Processing™ solution allows you to AUTOMATICALLY and CONCURRENTLY perform all of the advanced NC Post-Processing functions PLUS deliver the most accurate verification available today. The result? 25-35% reduction in NC programming and machine cycle-time and consistent production of verified production-ready G-code every time, WITHOUT repetitive manual intervention. All ICAM products are scalable and modular, so you can purchase what you require and upgrade later!
 
Smarter Cutting, Smarter Savings
Adaptive Post-Processing also relies on SmartPACK, which consists of three new innovative products called SmartPATH, SmartCUT and SmartFEED. These products work together to automatically adapt, correct and optimize NC programs based on the parameters and kinematics of the machine and part you are making. The resulting adapted NC program includes more efficient tool/positioning paths and optimized tool motions and feed rates, which when combined substantially increase the speed of part production. The software also improves overall productivity by extending tool-life and improving surface finish quality, while optimizing cutting forces and power consumption.
 
Easy Migration Between Machines
 
ICAM’s Adaptive Post Processing solutions not only eliminate these errors while reducing programming time, but also allow the programmer to “create tool-paths for the part” without much consideration to machine kinematics and without reprogramming the part at the CAD/CAM level for a second or new target machine. The ability of ICAM’s software to automatically find and correct these errors significantly reduces programming time and human errors while allowing for easy movement of part manufacturing jobs between differing machines.
