ICAM Ships CAM-POST V19 to its Users

Montreal – ICAM Technologies Corporation is pleased to announce the shipping of CAM-POST® V19, the latest version of its NC post-processing development software, to its user community. Version 19 of ICAM’s Integrated PSE product suite is also being shipped to current users.

Integrated PSE includes CAM-POST®, Virtual Machine® and Control Emulator™ and provides a unique environment for Post-processing, Simulation and Emulation inside a single software platform.

Integrated PSE interfaces with the most popular CAD / CAM / PLM systems, CNC controllers and machine tools and provides the means to compute in-process stock geometry to identify, list and display surface gouges, excess material, inaccessible areas and rapid-motion collisions at any time during the post-processing and verification phase.

Building on its advanced “forward-looking” features such as path planning and rotary axes pre-positioning / winding, developed to enhance the machining process while avoiding dwell marks, over-traveling and rotary repositioning, Integrated PSE V19 offers an array of new features to its end-users including:

* Mill / Turn Simulation with Material Removal
* Built-in support for Mill / Turn sub-spindle or back spindle
* Probing Simulati on
* RTCP and LCS Support
* New flexible GENER & CeRun user interface layout
* Windows XP, Vista and 7 compliant installation and operation

“Version 19 of CAM-POST, Virtual Machine and Control Emulator provides our customers with a powerful software tool allowing for post-processing and simulation with G-code verification for advanced machining applications including Mill / Turns,” says Brian Francis, ICAM’s Director of Research and Development.
