5-Axis Post-Processing from Scratch

Customer Challenge

TNT Machine & Fabrication takes pride in its outstanding full service for customers seeking help with machining and fabrication. When expanding its technology and services, TNT added a PaR 5-axis Vector Waterjet System, which required a custom post-processor. Parts were waiting to be cut, and TNT needed immediate turnaround. TNT turned to NexGenCAM for help.

 

Project Goals

TNT had one critical project goal requiring NexGenCAM’s help: Quick delivery to get the CNC machine up and running as fast as possible.

 

Solution

NexGenCAM staff has deep CAM and CNC experience. We immediately gathered information on the machine controller and built a custom solution including the following benefits:

1. Delivered within days of receiving machine information
2. Fine-tuned the code according to TNT feedback
3. Confirmed that the PaR Waterjet was cutting parts efficiently
4. Provided a full year of interactive Fusion 360 live support

 

Business Outcome

“NexGenCAM was responsive, and their custom solution was very successful. Development takes back-and-forth iteration, and their extended support was a great fit for us.”

– Brandon Harris, Machining Division Manager, TNT Machining and Fabrication

 

Conclusion

The project with TNT Machining and Fabrication was a success based on the following results:
1. Delivered within days of receiving machine information
2. Fine-tuned the code according to TNT feedback
3. Confirmed that the PaR Waterjet was cutting parts efficiently
4. Provided a full year of interactive Fusion 360 live support
