All round benefits with almaCAM Cut

Reduced preparation and programming time

  • Full automation available for every step of the programming process (CAD-CAM interfaces, nesting, tool assignment and tool path definition...) and operation possible in "batch" mode
  • “Intelligent” features: selection of optimization strategies according to specific situations; re-use of recorded  scenarii in similar contexts
  • Smooth-integration to the client’s Information System: direct and automatic links with CAD solutions, production management systems, ERPs and other CAM modules (folding, unfolding, etc.)
  • Control of all your machines using the same software
  • Complementary task-oriented modules (folding/ unfolding, letter and drawing cutting, tube cutting, 3D cutting, etc.)
  • Simplified programming (user friendly, software standardization, flexible switch between automation and interactivity)
  • Easy to learn (short learning curve)

 

Material savings

  • Decreased material loss rate thanks to optimized nesting
  • Nesting in remnant sheets

 

Reduced cycle times resulting in increased  machine productivity

  • Tool path optimization.
  • Support of cutting technology requirements (multi-torch cutting in oxy-cutting, common cut, laser head up/head down, etc.)
  • Management of peripheral loading/unloading units 

 

Improved quality of manufactured parts

  • Optimized cutting quality resulting from the support of technological constraints and the available functions for cutting condition allocation, lead-in or tool definition, tool path research, speed and acceleration description, etc.
  • Repeatability of both programs and situations

 

Savings on consumables and tools

  • Reduced number of piercings (bridges, chain cutting, common cut) and tool path optimization
  • Optimized management of cutting conditions

 

Reduced handling in the workshop

  • Reduced number of remnants to manage
  • Skeleton cut with management of various evacuation modes
  • Management of loading/unloading and part sorting (palletization) systems

 

Increased safety around the machines

  • Implementation of collision risk avoidance (collision between cutting head and an actual cut part)
  • Simulation features showing which defined operations can be performed

 

Improved workshop organization and production response time

  • Consistent programming methods for different machines
  • Programs created on a single machine can easily be reused on another
  • Manufacturing order management with automatic pooling of parts to produce
  • Management of remnant sheets and off-cuts
  • Streamlining of the necessary sheet formats, and reduction of the number of cut sheets (intelligent automatic nesting)

 

Improved data organization and process quality

  • Numerical data archiving and document traceability
  • Know-how formalizing 
  • Program standardization
  • Significant reduction of potential errors.
  • Data integrity control at each step of the programming process (for example: validation of nesting after a geometrical part modification)
  • Better streaming of data between services (Design departments, Methods, production, quality, etc.)
  • Integrated task-oriented modules simplifying data exchanges
