The pack comprises the following applications:
The prototyping flow initially involves assigning sheet metal attributes to 2D and 3D drawings and saving them in a database using AP100 EU and PRODUCTION DESIGNER.
By processing parts in AR CAM, users can automatically manage tooling, the bending sequence, part handling from picking to unloading and stacking.
The interface is simple and intuitive for users to make any manual changes to the automatic programme.
The developed production plan will be saved in a database and called up by the machine using the specific bar code reader.
PRODUCTION DESIGNER lets the user import and convert the main native formats of 2D and 3D CAD drawings (SolidWorks, SolidEdge, Inventor, Catia V5, ProEngineer, Step, Iges) in sheet metal.
By recognising special processing (such as forming, inserts, bend reliefs), the CAD system can be used to create attributes for the CAM environment.
The AMADA bending algorithm is used to calculate development but dedicated bend allowance tables can also be created.
AR CAM can be configured based on customer needs.
This enables the customer to associate the use of dies and punches for each material/thickness to process.
AR CAM considers an AMADA die magazine divided by tool families.
The exact quantity of sectionalised lengths for each type of die and punch can be configured.
AR CAM lets you automatically manage gripper changes based on the part to bend.
Part processing can be displayed in the 3D simulation environment of the programme.
