OMAX and ICAM Technologies have teamed to provide manufacturers with NC post-processing software that easily connects OMAX and MAXIEM abrasive waterjet machines with all major CAD/CAM systems, including CATIA, ProE (Creo Parametric), SIEMENS NX and Mastercam.
By combining OMAX’s Intelli-MAX control software with advanced NC post-processors from ICAM, OMAX and MAXIEM owners stand to benefit from the features that coincide with high-end 3D CAD/CAM packages. For example, OMAX and MAXIEM waterjet operators can program complex multi-axis tool paths, while simultaneously achieving the speed and accuracy that comes with the Intelli-MAX Software Suite. Furthermore, operators can program multi-process tool paths within a single CAD/CAM system.
ICAM s product suite includes CAM-POST for NC post-processor development with the option for integrated machine tool simulation using Virtual Machine. ICAM also supports G-code verification driven with Control EmulatorT inside Virtual Machine.
