Are you taking full advantage of the capabilities of today's advanced CNC controls?
Our vast experience in developing post processors means that we have the expertise to
develop the software you need to run your machine at its full potential. From Hedenhaim
conversational output to highly customized posts for gun drilling applications,
we've helped our customers reach new levels of productivity and totally eliminate
the possibility of human error that can occur when programs are edited at the machine.
This NC tape-merge application was developed for a customer to address the machining of multiple parts
using the fixture offset capability of their CNC.
UNIX to Windows Migration
Looking to get away from high-priced UNIX workstations? Are your UNIX workstations obsolete? Is just keeping them
running a hassle? The solution is to migrate to the Windows platform. The Windows edition of our
software is 100%
compatible with UNIX. Data files created on UNIX can be read into the Windows edition with no chance of data loss or
corruption. We've helped literally 100's of customers make the switch. Our support staff will design and
implement migration program to make the transition completely trouble-free. Even if you have extensive customization
that relies heavily on UNIX scripts, we can help you make the transition.
Every shop, NC programmer and machinist has their own
preferences to run each machine tool at its optimum level of
performance. We understand these needs and have developed
specific programs to meet them. In addition to pre-made
post processors provided with your AMT CAM software, we offer custom
post processor development services for Prospector and ExpertCAM:
Prospector Pro/Post Service - Pro/Post is a service to provide you with custom post processor software that
is specifically developed for your machine tools, shop standards, practices and preferences.
With Pro/Post, you never have settle for anything less than 100% perfect output.
Pro/Post service includes:
- Unlimited Warranty - every post processor is covered with an unlimited warranty
provided your Prospector application software is covered by a software support agreement.
This means that any changes you require initially or in the future are free.
- Speedy Delivery - in most cases, we can deliver your post processor in just a few
business days. Any modifications you might need to fine-tune the output we can usually
turn around the same day you request the changes.
- Safe and Secure - every post processor is developed exclusively for you and
maintained under your account name on our secure servers. There is no possibility that
the software can be changed without your authorization.
- Affordable - providing quality post processors is one essential key to ensuring
complete customer satisfaction with Prospector. That's why every Prospector license comes
standard with 1 Pro/Post post processor in addition to the standard library post processors.
Additional Pro/Post post processors start at just $495 for a typical 3-axis mill.
Custom Post Processors - Production machining is the most demanding environment. A few seconds of machine time
can mean the difference between profit and loss. You need a post processor as capable
as your NC programmer to squeeze every ounce of performance from each of your machine tools.
That's where a custom post processor comes into play. We will work with you to develop
a custom post processor that fills your requirements 100%:
- Unlimited Changes & Updates During Development - we will work with you during
the development of the post processor to tune the output to perfection. There is no
limit to the number of iterations of code changes until you are completely satisfied.
- 90 Day Warranty - after the post processor is put into production, unanticipated
situations can arise which require a change to the software. We'll make whatever changes
are needed at no cost to you during the warranty period.
- Affordable Software Updates - if your CNC software changes, you upgrade your
machine tool or change computing platforms, we can usually update your custom post to
accommodate your situation instead of starting from scratch with a new post processor.
To get the ball rolling, call AMT Software Customer Service at (888)
294-9450 to discuss your needs.
Our technician will gather from you information about your machine tool and preferences and will
ask you for a sample program that reflects your requirements. Customer service will provide you
with a custom quotation to develop the software.
Custom Programming & Projects
The very nature of our software allows it to be customized to
address your unique needs. ExpertCAD, ExpertCAM and
ToolDesigner use our proprietary macro language ScriptLink to create
the entire user interface for the application. Anything and
everything you see can be changed in both appearance and function.
You can add, remove or modify:
- On-screen icons.
- Menus - pull-down menus and pop-up menus.
- Keystroke commands.
- Cursor strokes.
We've helped many customers develop custom features and functions to automate their processes.
If you have an idea and need help getting started, talk to us. Our technicians can point you in
the right direction or tackle the entire project for you. We've done many projects over the years
and have a vast wealth of experience in automating design and manufacturing tasks.
Prospector PowerSource Programming
Prospector is unique in that it is a knowledge-based CAM system. Our proprietary PowerSource
technology allows machining rules and standards to be embedded into a database. At run-time the
database calculates the proper or preferred settings for every NC program that is created. We can help
you exploit this technology to enforce your shop rules, standards and best-practices through the
creation of comprehensive PowerSource database. We can either help you get started with programming
your PowerSource database, offer you training in PowerSource programming or we can develop it for you.
Call us to discuss how we can help you take your NC programming to the next level of productivity.
Knowledge and Expertise
No matter what your project entails, we stand ready to make it a
success. Our broad programming skill set includes:
- Windows programming in C/C++.
- Microsoft Win32, Microsoft MFC and Microsoft Visual Basic programming.
- ScriptLink and PowerSource VB Script.
- UNIX ksh, csh, sh scripting.
Working together, we can make your ideas come to fruition.
