Enhancements to Universal Post-Processor

NCCS Corp. offers PostWorks version 17.2. PostWoks is a high-end universal post-processor that generates precise NC code for a wide variety of machines including mills, lathes and multi-tasking machines. PostWorks is compatible with all CNC controls including HEIDENHAIN, Siemens and FANUC.

NCCS has added enhancements to PostWorks over the last several years, including:

  • Enhanced CLRSRF/START,TRFORM,ON command enables the transformation of the clearance plane through the matrix defined by the external Machine Adjustment File (MAF)
  • Enhanced CLRSRF clipping planes retract logic so that the tool can be retracted when CLRSRF/STOP or NOMORE is encountered
  • Enhanced CLRSRF clipping planes retract logic so the standard retract move can be omitted when the tool moves less than a specified distance between the clip plane intersection locations
  • Added ability to create a tape break sequence when a set number of tape blocks are output
  • Added support for the word SEQNO in tape break mode
  • Enhanced look of various Options forms so that the prompts are more meaningful
  • Updated Help/About dialog on all PostWorks programs to display the "bit-version" (Windows 32-bit or Windows 64-bit version)
  • 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.

The PostWorks suite of products includes machine simulation software to simulate the material removal process and machine kinematics while performing interference checking between all relevant components of the machining environment.
