The PSE V20 version of ICAM’s integrated postprocessing, simulation and emulation software interfaces with popular CAD/CAM/PLM systems, CNC controllers and machine tools using a single software platform. The program features SmartPath software designed to automatically optimize rapid positioning toolpath motions generated by CAD/CAM systems. SmartPath is said to reduce run-time positioning and CAD/CAM toolpath preparation time. The function identifies inefficient and unsafe positioning motions and automatically replaces them with minimized, collision-free, safe motions based on machine tool kinematics, physical travel limits, axes positioning rates and the changing state of the in-process stock.
