fanuc postprocessor 5axisClick image to enlargeFANUC’s new post processor optimizes 5-axis machining capabilities in FANUC CNCs.

It reduces cycle times while boosting part accuracy, particularly for CAD/CAM generated 5-axis simultaneous contouring part processes.

By optimizing FANUC CNCs with this new Mastercam post processor, machine tools will be able to produce parts–modeled in the CAD system—more precisely.

Key functions in the Milling Standard Package for FANUC controls include Tool Centre Point (TCP), Workpiece Setting, Error Compensation (WSEC), Easy Setting Function to support multiple acceleration and process profiles, and advanced lookahead algorithms AICC II with Smooth Tolerance Control+.
