CNC Post Processes Give Your Parts an Edge
- The finished 3-dimensional CAD design is imported to the CAM system.
- The CNC programmer feeds data regarding the required machining operations. This creates the paths the tools will take during the manufacturing process.
- Enter the post processor – this software takes the information uploaded into the CAM system and converts it into a language the CNC understands. No further modifications are necessary with a CAD/CAM post processor, as the result is a complete solution that is ready to use.
- The results of the conversion or code are then uploaded into the CNC machine, at which point the manufacturing process can begin. The CAD/CAM post processing is a very challenging process. It requires expert teams of engineers and machine operators to create top-quality precision parts.
