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.

  • Programming A Robot The Way You Program A CNC Machine Tool

    Programming a robot with the same CAM software used for a multi-axis machine tool makes it unnecessary to “teach” the robot by jogging it manually from point to point and recording these point-to-point moves as the robot’s motion commands. Robotmaster is a software package that provides this CAD/CAM-based, off-line programming for robots. It runs fully integrated inside Mastercam CAM software for CNC machine tools.

    The shift from vertical to horizontal machining was even more expensive than this shop anticipated. It was also more valuable. Most of the shop’s machining centers are HMCs now—here’s why.
