OMAX Corp. and ICAM Technologies Corp. are working together 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.
OMAX makes abrasive waterjet machining simple and precise through its exclusive Intelli-MAX control software that is available on all OMAX and MAXIEM branded waterjet machines. By combining Intelli-MAX with advanced NC post-processors from ICAM, OMAX and MAXIEM owners stand to benefit from the sophisticated 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.
“We are collaborating with ICAM because of their extensive skills and experience in implementing and supporting advanced machining applications,” said Carl Olsen, senior software engineer for OMAX. “We were especially impressed with ICAM’s manufacturing expertise within the aerospace and automotive sectors because these are two of the many industry segments that greatly benefit from the speed and flexibility of our waterjet machines.”
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 Emulator inside Virtual Machine.
