ICAM and CCAT Announce Agreement to Provide NC Manufacturing Training Seminars

November 13, 2012
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. -- Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology Inc. (CCAT) and ICAM Technologies Corporation (ICAM) announce an agreement to develop a series of seminars designed to educate and train local Connecticut-based manufacturers on advanced numeric control (NC) post-processing and simulation software and best practices.

ICAM develops leading manufacturing software and services specializing in NC post-processing solutions that support the most popular CAD / CAM systems (Mastercam, CATIA and SIEMENS NX), computer numeric control (CNC) machine tools and controllers for successful manufacturers around the world.

The first seminar will be on December 12 from 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. at CCAT’s Advanced Manufacturing Center in East Hartford, Conn. The seminar, “Intro to Advanced NC Post Processing,” will offer an introduction to ICAM Technologies’ graphic post-processing solution. Participants will learn how the same graphic post-processor can process toolpaths programmed in both NX and Mastercam and how to use CAM system dialogs to enable or disable post-processing optimization features. They will execute various post-processors with completely different machine tool kinematics without having to change any programming strategies.  

The collaboration with ICAM supports CCAT’s efforts to provide technology infusion for small and medium-sized manufacturers by providing exposure to advanced NC manufacturing technologies.

“CCAT’s goal is to help our manufacturing customers grow their businesses through advanced technology, training and increased productivity,” states Elliot Ginsberg, CCAT president and CEO. “By working with ICAM, we will further our efforts to provide additional support for our customers.”
 
ICAM’s product suite includes CAM-POST® for NC post-processor development with the option for integrated machine tool simulation using Virtual Machine®. ICAM also supports G-code verification driven with Control EmulatorTM inside Virtual Machine or CATIA.
 
ICAM’s customers benefit from dramatic improvements to CNC machine optimization, NC programmer productivity and manufacturing process efficiency. ICAM's unique technology and services provide its customers and industry partners with the competitive edge that their business operations and customers demand.

“Manufacturing efficiency and productivity is vital for North American companies to remain competitive on a global scale,” says John Nassr, ICAM president and CEO.  “With the collaboration with CCAT, ICAM will now be able to provide hands-on training and support services for its integrated NC post-processing, G-Code verification products to manufacturing professionals in the Connecticut and Northeast area.”
