Post Processor

Formatting code for your CNC Machine
Our team of manufacturing engineers can help you to get the most out of your CNC machines by offering post processor writing services to ensure a strong link between CAM and CNC helping you to maximise efficiencies.
What is a Post Processor?
A post processor translates co-ordinates and settings from a CAM system into a code format that your CNC machine can compute. This is essential in ensuring you can reap the benefits of a standardised, simple, and speedy approach of a CAM system whilst still taking care of the specific requirements of a machine’s code.
What Post Processor do I need?
In order to make sure you get the correct CNC code for your machine you need to identify the right post processor. We make this process easy by asking you, what the kinematic axes of your machine are and what is the controller? From here we can factor any optional extras your machine has and we make a post processor tailored to your machine, software and needs.
What is the value of a custom Post Processor?
Using a custom post processor allows you to ensure that the integration of CAM into your manufacturing workflow is seamless. These customisations could be as simple as dates, times, and tool lists, to programs or go as far as custom machine add-ons for loading or even probing modules.
Where are Post Processors made?
Each of our post processors are made inhouse by our specialist team, this is to make sure you get the post processor you need to suit your requirements, as quickly as possible and if changes are needed this is done directly with no need for it to be passed back to developer, elongating the time taken for delivery and reducing the communication you have with the post writer.

Post Processing Solutions


To ensure that you get a seamless transfer from SolidCAM to your machine our team can develop bespoke post processors which accommodate your businesses workflow requirements, specialist machining techniques and machine simulation. All this can be done whilst abiding by the kinematic limits of the machine and the controller’s specific language.


As with all aspects of SWOOD, SWOOD post processors are tailored to work with your router and it’s control. Whether it be standard ISO code or being imported into SCM’s Maestro or Biesse’s B-Solid and Biesseworks. SWOOD post processors can also take into account additional in process operations, such as pod movement and panel flipping, to make production as smooth as possible.


Within DELMIA we have a suite of flexible tools create code for kinematically complex machines with Simulation, Post Processing and Emulation all being available to ensure you are always cutting first time right. In addition to this we have a set of tools that can also further optimise your programs by intelligently changing the feed rate when the machine is found to be not cutting material.


So that you can excel with SOLIDWORKS CAM and CAMWorks, we can create custom post processors to take your programmed parts in CAM onto your Milling Machine or Lathe with a simple click whether your machine uses FANUC, Heidenhain or a Siemens control.

CAM Agnostic Post Processors and Robotics

If you don’t currently have CAM software provided by Solid Solutions this is not a problem. We can offer bespoke Simulation, Post Processing and Emulation for the majority of CAM systems on the market through ICAM. ICAM can leverage a default output from your CAM system and build on it to allow you to get a digital replication of your machine to ensure you can cut parts correctly every time.
