Post-processors are important interface tools between a computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) system and a CNC machine tool. In fact, today’s post-processors are optimization tools that output the most efficient and productive machine tool code possible. However, without utilizing the right post-processor in a particular metalcutting operation, even the most sophisticated CAM software and advanced machine tool will fail to function properly.

The upcoming webinar is ideal for any manufacturer interested in how post-processors have evolved and become key components in factory automation. Participants will learn how machine kinematics affect post-processing efforts as well as how to properly evaluate basic, 5-axis milling, and 5-axis milling and turning post-processor formats.    

All Mazak Discover Technology Webinars are free and approximately 30 minutes long. All it takes to participate is a computer, an Internet connection and a web browser, and a manufacturer is ready to gain powerful knowledge on how to stay competitive and profitable in today’s challenging global marketplace.
