PSE Manufacturing Solution

Be More Active & Optimise your Machining Processes

Active Post Processing, Optimised NC Code, Full NC Machine Simulation

With Desktop Engineering (DTE) and ICAM Technologies (ICAM) active NC post-processing and simulation in one place is a real possibility.


ICAM’s PSE Manufacturing solution is a powerful and flexible suite of software that can be utilised to create simple stand alone 2-axis post processors to complex and fully integrated post-processing and full machine simulation solutions. PSE is an acronym for ‘Post Processing, Simulation and Emulation’.

These modular parts of the product suite incorporate powerful and market-leading technology that enables active and smart processing. This can be used to avoid collisions automatically, optimise your NC code, improving efficiency, safety and most importantly making your process more cost-effective.

ICAM PSE can be integrated with the worlds’ leading CAD/CAM and PLM providers which provides a ‘one port of call’ for all post-processing and simulation requirements.

With ICAM PSE V21, further steps have been taken to incorporate more ‘SMART’ technologies and we can now introduce SMARTCut and SMARTFeed to sit alongside the existing SMARTPath.

These two new functions enable optimisation to take place at the point of post-processing using Material Removal Simulation and volumetric calculations, unnecessary fresh air cuts can be eliminated and management of the tool load within the material can be optimised using feed rate optimisation. Thus increasing tool life and increasing efficiencies. The options for controlling these two options can be easily used and manipulated, for best results.
