PostWorks 17.2 Generates NC Code for Variety of Machines
NCCS Corp.’s PostWorks 17.2 is a universal postprocessor that generates NC code for a variety of machines. The software is compatible with Heidenhain, Siemens and FANUC controls.
The PostWorks suite includes software to simulate the material removal process and machine kinematics while identifying possible interferences between all relevant components in the machining environment.
Version 17.2 updates the CLRSRF/START,TRFORM,ON
This version can also create a tape break sequence when a set number of tape blocks are outputted. The word SEQNO in tape break mode now has added support. The punch file can now be withheld when an APT source input error is encountered. In previous versions, a punch file could only be withheld upon encountering a regular processing error.
What does "jerk" refer to, and where does it fit into machine performance?
Properly evaluating machine tool capability requires understanding how the both user and the builder can influence precision.
This concept introduces the three basic modes of operation, presents examples of when they are used, explores more about the mode switch, and categorizes each position of the mode switch into one of the three basic modes.
