02/ imos CAM iX
imos CAM iX translates the design from imos CAD iX into the required manufacturing files for your production.
The imos approach is simple: deliver ready-to-go CNC programs that contain all the correct tooling and manufacturing information.
Connection to CNC systems
The CNC files are made specifically for the job you are currently working on, avoiding the time-consuming editing of macro’s or writing programs manually. imos CAM iX generates files for beam saws, edgebanders, CNC nesting machines and CNC pod & rail machines
The modern machine application is an essential precondition for the secure and economical implementation of more flexible design methods. imos directly transforms the planning and design data into machine readable formats. With imos CAM iX all necessary manufacturing documents and CNC programs are automatically derived from the 3D design data and material information. All common machine manufacturers are supported in this system. The most modern technology is implemented in the CAM iX modules whether graphic programming of 5 axis machines or special functions for solid wood processing.
Directly connected to CNC machining centers
Economical CNC connections of different machine types and WOP systems from the single system to the workshop unit and up to fully automatic industry system: imos automatically creates all CNC programs for the complete order with all required parameters like tool selection, revs/rpm, feed, startup strategy, first and second working. CNC data and drilling patterns are automatically compatible, cutting lists are transferred to the cut optimization software. Manufacturing- and press lines are supported as well as edge gluing, nesting or 5 axis.
Link to 5 axis machinery
An available programming system with a real-time simulation simplifies the operation for the 5 axis technology. The 5 axis programming is created in CAD with predefined processing operations and afterwards transferred to the 3D simulation.
imos Direct Nest can create an optimised nesting map and generates the milling path and drilling data. This cutting optimisation achieves an improved material utilisation especially with a variety of different shaped parts. Further CNC programs for alternative machines are generated for possible horizontal processing. Additionally imos can connect to existing nesting systems by producing the CNC files and a list file for the nesting software.

Directly connected to CNC machining centers
An available add on programming system with a real-time simulation simplifies the operation of creating a 5 axis program. The 5 axis programming is created in CAD with predefined processing operations and afterwards transferred to the 3D simulation and then onto the machine.
Allocating the process on several machines
The more-machine-connection enables the control of different CNC machining centers. In doing so, various production strategies can be displayed and the allocation of the parts to the individual CNC machining centers according to the part characteristics can be defined. Then each working is filtered on the respective machine
Connection to cut optimization
A freely configurable interface is applied for the connection to the cut optimization. In this process, sizing dimensions and material descriptions, part descriptions, item numbers or part graphics can be transferred. The part is clearly marked on the saw and automatically transferred to the following CNC machines.
A highly configurable interface is used for the connection to your cutting optimisation software. In this process, sizing dimensions and material descriptions, part descriptions, item numbers or part graphics can be transferred. The part can be clearly identified with the use of part labels.
Automated production reports and Paperwork
Passing production information to your manufacturing team is easy with imos, standard cut lists reports for core materials, surfaces and edging can be created with the click of a button
Clear workpiece identification
The core element of the CNC manufacturing is the appropriate workpiece identification via barcode. An unambiguous part number can be generated directly in imos on the basis of user defined rules to ensure that the part can be clearly allocated in the production
