Specialising in development and implementation of advanced NC post-processing and machine tool simulation solutions for manufacturers in every major industry around the world for over 40 years.

ICAM has provided aerospace, automotive, medical, heavy equipment and electronic organisations with advanced NC post-processing solutions that have enabled them to increase productivity and achieve greater manufacturing performance and precision.


ICAM’s product line includes:

Advanced Technology Solutions

CAM-POST® – from simple 2 and 3 axis to complex multi-axis application CAM-POST is an NC post-processing development software compatible with all major CAD/CAM systems, machine tools and controllers.

Virtual Machine® – graphical machine tool simulator depicting the operations and motions of CNC machines; thereby, allowing for the unique ability to detect and automatically correct collisions and over-travel block by block during post-processing.

Control Emulator™ – software allowing NC programmers to verify and test NC programs using g-code inside Virtual Machine®

SmartPATH® (patented) generates new optimized and efficient positioning tool-paths while avoiding over-travel and collisions. It also eliminates your time-consuming dependency on inefficient and unsafe RAPID or high-feed positioning motions generated by CAM systems.

SmartCUT™ eliminates time wasting “air-cuts” by using material removal simulation to detect when the tool is not engaged with the material and moving at a cutting feed. Where feasible, SmartCUT will change these air-cut motions to RAPID or high-feed; thereby, significantly reducing machining cycle time.

SmartFEED™ optimizes cutting feed-rates by using material removal simulation to automatically recalculate the best machining feed-rate based on the machine tool capabilities, tool reference cuts and the real-time engagement of the cutting tool in the in-process stock material.

Control EmulatorTM (CE), is a software product allowing NC programmers to simulate and test NC programs using Machine Code Data (MCD) inside ICAM’s Virtual Machine and/or CATIA V5/DELMIA.

Custom NC Post-Processors and advanced machining productivity tools including: High Speed Machining, NURBS and Arc Fitting.

ICAM’s partial client list includes Airbus, Boeing, Triumph, Ferrari, Michelin, Rolls-Royce, Philips, GE and many more.
