LVD Strippit, Akron, NY, released CADMAN-L 3D and CADMAN-P 3D version 28, offline programming software for LVD laser cutting systems and CNC turret punch presses. The software provides enhanced functions for laser cutting and punching applications, according to the company.
CADMAN operates on Windows platforms and includes new punching and laser cutting modules within a new interface with enhanced graphic visualization techniques that include auto-nesting capabilities, import/export nesting; and multiple machining functions on a single part.
The Job Explorer feature of the software optimizes the project tree principle of storing processing data related to the piece part by allowing the organization of job data. Job explorer can be used for structured organization, searching, and moving of part related data within the technology database.
CADMAN-L 3D incorporates automatic, semi-automatic, or manual nesting and optimizes cutting and machine parameters to maximize sheet utilization for laser cutting systems.
It permits the user to configure lead-ins/lead-outs and allow for cutting path optimization, common line cutting, and high-speed communications and networking. Key features include automatic advanced application of processing technology, enhanced processing database integration between machine and offline software, and improved machining order.
CADMAN-P 3D module for turret punch presses provides automatic tool selection and turret configuration, including the identification of optimum tool stations and turret loading. Functions include support of wheel, scribing, and tapping tools; optimized machining order by tool; improved management of part evacuations, and better micro-joint programming.
