Postprocessor vs. Simulator: What’s the Difference?

Postprocessor vs. Simulator: What’s the Difference? Here is a short and concise explanation! (see photos)

Still not quite clear? You can find the in-depth answer on our support page:

A postprocessor automatically “translates” a graphically created work plan (CAD/CAM) into an executable program for a specific control.

A simulator replicates the control itself. Some even simulate the original controls 1:1, with identical user interface and operation, such as SinuTrain or the HEIDENHAIN programming station. The simulators from KELLER, on the other hand, use a control-neutral interface, in which most of the commands and cycles of the real control are reproduced.
