Postprocessors - the most important interface between CAM system and machine tool
Postprocessors from EXAPT have always been among the most powerful on the market.
Market. EXAPT takes over the production individually for your respective machine control - e.g. Sinumerik, Heidenhain, Fanuc, Okuma, Philips etc..
In a nutshell - that's what you can expect from us:
- Utilization of all functionalities of the processing machines
- Loss-free adoption of CAM planning in the NC program
- List output with accompanying information - Setup sheet & time calculation
- Implementation of standardized NC program structures
- Ensuring the necessary flexibility in the running-in process
- Optimized for all standard control types on the market
- Independent of machine or production strategy
- Individual adaptations according to your wishes
EXAPT postprocessors are available from us in four different categories for all machine types - lathes, drilling/milling machines, multitasking machines, gantry machines etc... The respective postprocessor category primarily depends on the equipment and functionality of the machine - number of axes, slides & spindles as well as aggregates.
For maximum flexibility, EXAPT offers additional options for the individual categories.
Post processor options for each category:
- Output of organizational data in PPORG interface format for further processing in the EXAPTcontrol system for production data organization.
- Output of tool data available on EXAPT-CLDATA as NC leader (correction switch loading conveyor, format specification required by the customer).
- Zero point memory leader (format specification by the customer required).
- Output of thread milling, tapping, thread turning
- NC block jump conditions, nesting and loop techniques.
- Workspace monitoring.
- Output of handling programs and transfer routines for multi-spindle automatic machines.
- Measuring cycles
Of course we also take care of collision control. However, at EXAPT this already happens in the EXAPT CAM systems on request. Therefore, this function is not necessary in the area of postprocessors. Personal consultation is always our top priority. This is the only way to realize your individual wishes directly during the creation. At the same time, we ensure that your production standards are mapped and adhered to by the EXAPT post processor. Of course, we also enable you to edit or create your postprocessors independently. EXAPT offers you an expert seminar in which you will learn all about the EXAPTeasy PP system in detail.
By the way - EXAPT can also provide you with the appropriate kinematics for perfect machine simulations on request. Our individually designed machine models ensure additional safety in the EXAPT CAM systems and absolute running smoothness in the shop floor. EXAPT postprocessors and EXAPT machine simulations form an unbeatable team.
Are you currently planning to purchase new machines or have your machinery overhauled? Do not hesitate to contact us about postprocessor and/or machine simulation - we are just a phone call away.
