The focus of CAM systems is on effectively creating cutting tool paths. However, collision risk is very high on multi axes machines when performing non-cutting traverse moves. If available, CAM systems offer limited setting options for non-cutting tool moves. In this paper an approach is presented that allows to automatically generating non-cutting tool paths. Process planners will not only be released from developing and simulating time-consuming multi axes traverse moves. The automatically calculated traverse moves will also machinespecifically optimized with respect to various optimization criteria.
